Grammar Curriculum: Grammar Coverage Of Our Lesson Plans

ESL Lounge Premium has been online since 2005. We have never tried to impose any idea of "curriculum" onto our teachers, preferring to leave it to their experience and judgement as to when each lesson plan should be taught to a class. Beyond a very generic division by language level (Elementary, Pre-Intermediate), etc, we believe our teachers are best placed to make those decisions.

What we have done below, however, is to provide a list of lesson plans based on the grammar areas covered. The list of lesson plans below does not include most of the non-grammar lessons: reading, speaking, vocabulary lessons, etc. Using the lesson plan codes (e.g. 2G4) that you can find next to each lesson plan, you can see which areas of grammar are touched upon by each lesson.

Remember this is NOT an exhaustive list of the lesson plans on the Premium site: there are many lesson plans that have no direct grammar focus and are therefore not included here.

Many teachers prefer to use our lesson plan tags instead, a more comprehensive cross-referencing of all the lesson plans here on the Premium site.

Lesson Plan Key

Example: 2G4

The first number refers to the level (0 - beginner, 1 - elementary, 2 - pre-intermediate, 3 - intermediate, 4 - advanced, B - business, YL - young learner).

The letter refers to the lesson plan type (G - grammar, L - listening, R - reading, S - speaking, RP - role play, V - vocabulary, T - topic)

So 2G4 will be found on the pre-intermediate Grammar page of lesson plans.

We have also color-coded the lesson plan numbers in the table below to make finding different levels easier:
