The Linguistic Funland TESL Page offers visitors a treasure trove of to useful TESL resources. Visitors will find links to student activities, articles and essays, email pen pals, teaching materials and software, cultural sites, and many other TESL materials. This site is a subsection of Linguistic Funland, which is maintained by Kristina Pfaff-Harris at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Welcome to the Linguistic Funland's TESL page. This site is intended to be a stepping off point for TESL/TEFL people into the wonderful chaos available on the Internet. If you have questions on what to do here, an introductory file is available. I have included links to other search mechanisms (such as the Applied Linguistics Virtual Library) which contain an enormous amount of useful information, and many of the other sites I have listed will connect you to still more. I hope that this page will continue to be a good demonstration of the resources available on the Net.

If you know of a site or other information that should go here, or if you have comments on how I can make these pages better, please e-mail me. Sites on this page can be telnet, web, gopher, e-mail, or FTP: if your browser does not support one or more of these, let me know and I'll try to help. Special thanks to Tom Robb and Cindy Chou who sent in their lists of favorite sites and inspired the beginning of these pages.
