Welcome to all who came to my workshop at OMLTA today and listened as I fumbled and rambled about Cool Tools for Language Learners (and their Teachers). I was happy to be a part of the 125th anniversary conference. Just illustrates, “We’ve come a long way, baby!” Enjoy the blog. Use it as you need it and look for more stuff to be added in the future. Don’t forget to subscribe, and comments are always welcome.

In February, 1997, Susan Brooks and Bill Byles began a collaborative effort to extend assistance to fellow teachers. In November of 2000 that project expanded to a web presence known as Internet 4 Classrooms (“i4c”), a free web portal designed to assist anyone who wants to find high-quality, free Internet resources to use in classroom instruction, developing project ideas, reinforcing specific subject matter areas both in the class and at home and even for online technology tutorials. The portal is used by teachers, parents and students of all ages on six of the seven continents (there are not many classrooms in Antarctica) and is available to anyone with an Internet connection. We do not charge a subscription fee.

This website was created by language teachers for language teachers.  We want to make life a bit easier for you! We do this by providing worksheet generators and other tools to help you create teaching materials.  Use pictures from our clip-art gallery and translations from our  bilingual materials. Be creative and custom-design your own exercises. We are in the process of developing a database of materials where you can download grammar and vocabulary exercises in PDF format for use in class.
