Jason Renshaw critiques the Big 4's ELT websites

Teaching-English-in-Japan-Education-FGrade.png" "They are the big movers and shakers...They've got the money and the people and the means... so let's see them strut their stuff!" says Jason Renshaw at his English Raven blog and proceeds to take apart the website offerings of Oxford, Pearson Longman, Cambridge and Macmillan. One publisher has "old stuff being passed through new wardrobes" another has Mr Renshaw "negotiating the tedious quagmire of confusing Google search results".

It's not all bad though as one site impresses by pulling together "most of its disparate products and priorities into one easy-to-navigate central site" whilst another is described as "An enormously pleasurable experience...downright EXCITING!".

Who passed and who gets an F from Mr Renshaw? Visit English Raven for the full story.
