The World Wide Web is a fantastic source of authentic reading materials. There is something to suite every learner. It is great as a source of material for the teacher as well as a motivating place for learners to explore and find items of interest.

I found this curiosity – a clip which trains you to listen and read at double speed! Don’t worry if you don’t catch everything first time. It replays at normal speed in the second half. A potentially useful idea if you want your learners to speed read. For me that’s the most useful aspect of this, not listening to someone sprinting through the text.
