some friends of mine would like to be taught English. Are there any good downloadable web resources for this task?
I am looking for special recordings in slowly spoken English and also (same text) normal spoken English to effortlessly accustom them to the different language melody and structure. It would be great if those recordings would already be structured in a step by step lesson-like context.
Also I am looking for a good downloadable grammar as a reference work.
Money is tight for them and not everyone has an internet connection at home, so it would be important that it is free and possibly available for download, i.e. not entirely web based.
I would also be interested in some fun written lessons and exercises.
Do we have any language teaching experts? I would surely appreciate your input.
