A Digital ESL Resource Book

Marianne Raynaud has put her two-year ESL (English as a Second Language) university course on a DVD entitled "QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book", and now she has developed a downloadable version. For both versions she has created a simple-to-use DOCUMENT ANNEX with text, audio and PowerPoint presentations. On the DVD there are also video clips made by her students. A vast number of exercises, tests and examples of student work as models are included in both versions. MR with the computer
