The Literacy List is a large collection of free Adult Basic Education and English language (ELL/ESL/ESOL) Web sites, electronic discussion lists ("listservs") and communities of practice (CoPs), and other Internet resources for adult basic skills learners, teachers and tutors. The resources have been suggested by adult literacy and ELL practitioners. Within each category, links are in alphabetical order, so the first ones are not necessarily the best or most often used. Because The Literacy List has several separate web pages, and because hard copy versions are quickly dated, I suggest that you bookmark rather than print it.  If you would like to recommend an Internet resource, or if you have trouble accessing a link here, please let me know.
