Research problem:

- Frequently there is a lack of supplemental ESL teaching materials beyond a textbook

- Textbooks are limited in what they can offer (no audio, interactivity, or feedback )


Research solution:

- Tapping into FREE ESL resources and online libraries on the Internet (now, rich with audio/visual & interactive features)


So where are all these sites???
