Larry Ferlazzo is a former community organizer who now teaches English to both new and native speakers at a high school in Sacramento, California. He also publishes a tremendous guide to online teaching resources for English teachers and learners, and his blog, Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day, has consistently great links to new online resources to support teaching and learning — especially learning English.
About a month ago, he published a blog post with a fantastic list of “The Best Health Sites For English Language Learners”, in which he picks the top 12 sites that best bring together health information literacy with potential English language development. His recommendations are excellent, from EnglishMed‘s animated exercises for medical professionals learning workplace English, all the way up to MedinePlus’s Interactive Health Tutorials. Along the way, he recommends three different sites focused on oral health, one for kids’ health, and much more. Commenters to the post have added some other suggestions as well.
