This is a list of websites I tend to visit frequently for ideas and fun activities.

Le point du FLE

This website offers a host of grammar explanations, on-line activities and games, ideas for writing activities, ideas for speaking activities…the sky is the limit! I use these activities frequently with the Smartboard and I put some activities on to my Moodle. When students ask for extra practice, I just refer them to this site.

Wordreference

This is an extremely thorough on-line dictionary. I always encourage my students to go to this site when they need help with vocabulary. It has many examples, expressions and even a forum where you can ask questions about words and expressions. It has many languages, so it is useful for international language teachers as well.
