Here are some sites that I have been using successfully with students in the morning transition class (intermediate/advanced students) and the afternoon beginning class (orientation, low beginning, high beginning).  In the open lab, there are student activity sheets for each of the sites listed below.. Enjoy!

There are listening activities here appropriate for all ESL levels.
Some of the listening activities have scripts and paragraph completion tasks.

Beverly Fox participated in an FSS grant with Mt. San Antonio College to create and launch a website, http://www.connectionsforsuccess.com.  The goal of the websiteis to be a virtual student services center with mini instructional modules for ESL and basic skills students..  Jayne Bernasconi, Kristi DeMersseman, Carol Gross, Marutte Hecht, and Angela Webster joined me in an introductory workshop, and we were very impressed.  Try the site using the Internet Explorer browser.

Suzanne Woodward has been designing some interesting webquests, online scavenger hunts, for her students.  Ask her for lesson ideas.  She learned about making them at the CATESOL conference in San Francisco.
