Short Biographies of over 30,000 people

This is a great resource for ESL students. It is a great tool for assimilation. I have noticed many students aren’t aware of cultural figures that I mistakenly assumed everyone had heard of. Just this week I mentioned Albert Einstein and discovered almost a third of my class had never heard of him. I hope you find Factmonster useful.
