      Our district bought subscriptions to Rosetta Stone. It is spendy, but there is a lot of visuals and address the four areas of listening, reading, writing, and speaking.

        Hi
        All the way over in Australia we have 'Reading Eggs' a program created by the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) it will give you a free trial and you can find it at
        readingeggs.com.au
        It is a reading program that teaches with phonics - might be a bit babyish but is a solid starting place.
        There also used to be an excellent series called 'Open Sesame' based on Sesame Street characters that teaches English with chants and fun dialogues
        http://www.abebooks.com/OPEN-SESAME-ENGLISH-SECOND-LANGUAGE-SERIES/12078760881/bd
        I have used this in Japan many years ago and can still remember the chants
        Hope some of this is helpful
        Kate
