Software for Students is unique. We are teachers and we develop software
and books for learners of English (ESL and EFL). We have provided
software for learners of English since 1995. All of the materials which
form the basis of our software and books utilize authentic writing, writing
from our students, which they contributed to the learning projects.
While most of the writing contributions were made by ESL students, contributions
were also made by native speakers of English who were taking remedial
Our main software application is
Easy Writer, first published
in 1995. This is an interactive application and was tested for
years in college ESL classes before it was released to the public.
From this initial application, we have now published "Easy
Writer Deluxe", an audio application, "The
Sounds of Writing", an audio application useful
for the development of reading and listening, "The Grammar
HELP! Student Handbook", useful to develop grammar and
editing skills, and our "ESL HELP! Desk"
and online resource room.
Our online resources provide additional writing, reading, and listening
activities for learners of English. It is a center for teachers and
for students. Teachers can obtain lesson plans and activities
here; students can download the .pdf files of the essays, listen to
the essays online, listen to and read a variety of lessons on grammar,
American manners, mannerisms, life and cultural institutions, "how
to's" and other helpful and practical lessons and topics.
