DEAR FELLOW LINGUISTS,

SOME TIME AGO I HAD REQUESTED INFORMATION ABOUT ESL SOFTWARE FOR MACINTOSH
COMPUTERS. I HAVE RECEIVED 2 MESSAGES FOR WHICH I WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS MY
APPRECIATION.

REGARDS: LARRY


JOHN KNIGHT WROTE:

ONE VERY NICE PROGRAM THAT I'VE USED IN MY TEACHER TRAINING WORK IS 'HOT
POTATOES' - A FREE (FOR EDUCATIONAL USE) PROGRAM THAT ALLOWS YOU TO AUTHOR
INTERACTIVE WEB PAGE-BASED QUIZZES, CLOZES, COMPREHENSION EXERCISES, ETC.

/THE NEW VERSION (4) IN PARTICULAR IS GENUINELY EASY TO USE AND GOES DOWN
VERY WELL WITH EVEN THOSE TEACHERS WITH VERY LITTLE COMPUTER EXPERIENCE.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM (AVAILABLE FOR BOTH PCS AND MACS)
