About this Site

We have created an ESL learning website consisting of one single unit about the brain. Our audience is a group of adult ESL learners in an Intensive English Program at the intermediate level. These learners plan on attending University after graduation, mostly in scientific fields. This is a content-based health & sciences class. The focus is on the vocabulary and reading skills that might be required in a University science class.

In order to distinguish this website from what might be typical classroom instruction, we have included mandatory blog & wiki assignments before and after each reading, for pre- and post-reading reinforcement.
