Check out two new sites

Two new sites have been added to help you improve your English. Yappr.com was recommended by Juan Cabrerra. You can watch videos, play games, and more. Another new site is News For You. We receive this newspaper every week in class. Now you can listen to the articles on the front page. You can choose to listen to the entire article at once or you can listen to one sentence at a time. There are also two comprehension activities for each article.
