The Linguistic Funland was created in 1994 as a list of various linguistics links on a personal homepage. Then a graduate student in linguistics, the author began to accumulate a list of resources that soon grew out of a single page and into this directory. On this site, you'll find resources for language teaching and learning (related to TESL, ESL, and TESOL), linguistics study, and other miscellaneous resources. It even provides scripts for educators and electronic journals. The author of this site, Kristina Pfaff, has a Bachelor of Science in applied science and technology and a Master's degree in linguistics. After working at the University of Nevada and the University of Minnesota, she now works as a CGI (Common Gateway Interface) programmer and systems administrator.
Because she has experience teaching Korean college-level students, there is precious information about teaching English for Korean students in this site. Also, the site provides a lot of link sites related to TESOL. You can get not only teaching skills but also information for related job opportunities.
However, this site lacks in-depth studies or important theses. Therefore, it will be useful for beginners who have interests in linguistics and English education in general.
