Digital Recorders

Did you know that the Ruth G Hardman Literacy Service has digital voice recorders available for checkout? Tutors and learners can use these recorders in a variety of ways, including practicing pronunciation, reviewing previous lessons, exploring letter sounds, and recording life stories for later transcription. 

If you are a tutor or literacy student and you are interested in checking out one of our digital voice recorders, contact the Literacy Office at 549-7400. We can arrange to have the recorder sent to your local library for your use.

Introducing our new ESL Specialist!

We are happy to introduce our new ESL Specialist, Jennifer Lockhart! Jennifer has recently joined the Literacy team, and we are very excited she is here. We asked her to introduce herself:

Enhance Your Learning with ESL Podcast!

ESL Podcast logo

For an adult learner who needs some English listening practice and has Internet access, we highly recommend eslpod.com.  Learners can go to the site and choose a podcast that is of interest to them. They can listen to it slowly, listen to an explanation of it, and/or listen to it quickly; at the same time they can read the transcript if they'd like. The service is free, but interested students can pay for a basic or premium membership if they would like to receive the "Learning Guides."  

Continuing Education for ESL Tutors

Every Friday at 3:00 (CST), the American TESOL Institute conducts a free 30 minute webinar on a topic of interest for ESL teachers and tutors. Visit http://www.livebinders.com/play/present?id=292127 for more information and to access archives of previous webinars. If you complete a webinar, be sure to turn in a short summary to the literacy office for continuing education credit.
