---"My name is Glotagog-X513, but you can call me X513. I am a Glotagog Mark II englishdroid. When not teaching,
I am kept in a storage pod in the school basement.

Occasionally the DOS forgets to switch me off, which is how I managed to make this website.

The site first appeared in 2001, with the title I Hate Teaching English."

ESLjokes

UNSW Global Test Papers

http://www.eaa.unsw.edu.au/icas/download-practice-questions

so good beginners should start at A.(This was developed for school ,not for ESL ,students).

But the excellent presentation makes it very useful to all.

It's not interactive so you need to print it to complete the tests the old-fashioned way.
