Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

Editor, Dr T. Matthew Ciolek.

"The goal of the Intermediate Reading/Listening Exercises is to produce listening and reading exercises for students of Central Asian languages at the intermediate level to help build their listening and reading skills, broaden their vocabulary, enrich their appreciation of grammar, and deepen their understanding of the cultures of the region. Each module features original or adapted written and spoken texts that present language structures in authentic cultural contexts. The texts are accompanied by a series of multimedia exercises developed by our native-speaker developers. Please feel free to explore the modules at your leisure."
