Learning Chocolate - Activities for Learning English

Learning Chocolate is a nice little resource for ESL/ELL students. Learning Chocolate offers six learning activities in dozens of word categories. Pick a word category such as animals or clothing then listen to the pronunciations of the words in that category. After reviewing the pronunciations students can choose from five different activities. Each word category offers three matching games, a fill in the blank game, and dictation activity in which students spell the words as they're read to them.

Applications for Education
Learning Chocolate could be a good resource for teachers in search of activities that students can do independently or at home with parents. Learning Chocolate also offers teachers the option to build activities using their own word banks.
