Best of the web

A great collection of internet webby stuff as recommended by visitors to the Learn English Network.

Could be a web site, a Twitter feed, a Facebook page, a Google plus page, forum, video, basically anything on the net.  

If you would like to recommend a site etc. use this form, or post the link on the forum.

Santa Tracker

Well it's that time of year again, and what better way to celebrate than to see what Santa has been up to.  According to the web site, Mrs. Claus has informed NORAD that Santa’s “Naughty or Nice” list includes a record 1.9 billion children under the age of 15 this year!

This Christmas Eve (December 24th), you can even join NORAD in tracking Santa's flight from your mobile phone. On December 24th, open Google Maps for mobile and do a search for "Santa" to see his latest location.  I love the internet.

When Is

When Is is a web site that gives you the dates of religious and civil holidays around the world.  Amusingly it's divided into religious holidays, and then America is stuck on the end, with a date given for St Patrick's Day and Halloween.  As a Brit this is slightly annoying, but all in all it's a worthy effort.
