Default ESL Lesson Ideas - Current Events in Asia and Education

Here are three blogs that are updated 4-6 times daily by a guy that lived in Asia for about 20 years (according to his bio).

The blog entries can be read in less than a minute and are for students high beginner to advanced and invariably lead to a discussion using the vocabulary introduced in the blog.

Great resource for class starters/fillers or even a whole class.

The links are:

PanAsianBiz - about business/culture/current events in the Asian region

RisingSunOfNihon - about the same in Japan

TheBizOfKnowledge - about the business of education, college rankings and so on.
