Tools

For several years, I was also curating a Tools site for students. I decided to stop updating that and to gradually move the more useful tools from that site to this Topics site, adding new tools as I come across them. Starting January 2017, here is (the beginning of) an index, by category:


Apps


Drawing


Editorial cartoons


Free Online Courses

  • Highbrow (10-day reading courses, delivered to your email)
  • Khan Academy (highlighting one free course about Pixar)

Games & Puzzles


Grammar


Humor


Images / Photography


Listening


News / Current Events

And the main English-language news sites in Japan:


Quizzes


Reading


Recipe sites 


Translation / Bilingual (and multilingual) sites

  • nippon.com (news in English, Japanese and 5 other languages)

Typing practice


Video collections


Vocabulary improvement


Word clouds


Writing prompts



For practicing other languages as well as English
