English Learning Websites?

As many users on this site don't speak English as their first language, I thought this thread might be useful for others as well:

Youtube is a good one I think. They have lessons and endless amounts of practice.

But these websites should reflect the personality of your students. Is one majoring in zoology? Then recommend a website based on that. (But I don't teach English so I may be stating the obvious or something way off.)

Not much time, but

http://www.scribd.com/doc/3099185/The-Oxford-3000-words (tell them to buy the book, as this PDF is pretty naff.)

Googlebooks (previews of kids books - same way we do it)

Various nameless manga distribution sites (the ones people use to read stuff in English, of course.) They all know certain manga quite well, so it's easy, yah.

Google (search terms: ESL lesson, etc.)

http://www.scribd.com/doc/6001254/3000-M...in-English (just a pdf from one of there courses, but pretty useful.)

http://rfptemplates.technologyevaluation...-list.html (ignore the advertising)

Idiomsite.com

http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/12894/adjective-list (good list of adjectives)

http://www.paulnoll.com/Books/Clear-Engl...verbs.html (adverbs list)

http://www.englishclub.com/vocabulary/re...s-list.htm (verbs list)

http://www.momswhothink.com/reading/list-of-verbs.html (this is an absolutely awesome site for words)

about.com is good for grammar.

the owl purdue english lab is very useful if they are at a higher level.

Sorry, I would add more, but times up.

This ESL podcast is a comedy style talk show done by two Canadian brothers living in Shanghai, China. Fun to listen to and a great way to improve English.
