I have not checked it out, so I am asking you to look at it and review it. Let me know if I should add it to my list of speaking resource. Reviewing it also means telling us what you think is wrong with the site or confusing about it.
There are 10 modules to follow at your own pace and improve speaking skills. You can also download and print modules.
And now a few words about the writing assignment - write and post a review of the site. In the past. I've asked you to let me know what you think of sites. Some responses are good. Others are disappointing - and still others missing altogether. Perhaps specific guidelines will help you write a review.
Writing reviews or evaluations is a common writing task both in school and the workplace. Reviews are not just about movies or books. Students and scholars write reviews of the literature in their field. In business, you may be asked to review a product, a procedure or even someone's performance. Reviews even show up in informal writing, such as when someone asks your opinion about a book, movie, destination or activity ("What did you think about....?")
You can apply the following guidelines for writing book reviews to writing other reviews

A review is a critical evaluation of a text, event, object, or phenomenon. Reviews can consider books, articles, entire genres or fields of literature, architecture, art, fashion, restaurants, policies, exhibitions, performances, and many other forms.
Above all, a review makes an argument. The most important element of a review is that it is a commentary, not merely a summary. It allows you to enter into dialogue and discussion with the work's creator and with other audiences. You can offer agreement or disagreement and identify where you find the work exemplary or deficient in its knowledge, judgments, or organization. You should clearly state your opinion of the work in question.
