They are top quality 4-7 page PDF lesson plans of a similar quality to those you would find in professional coursebooks.

We don't only provide you with the complete lesson plan for your class, but also give you full teacher notes and instructions. It is just like following a simple recipe! Full answer keys are also included in teacher notes so you don't even have to do the exercises yourself. Lesson plans are easy to find using our Lesson Plan Tags, our search page or our Grammar Curriculum.

We Put Didactics At The Forefront

The Teacher Notes are not simply lists of answers. As much work goes into these Teacher Notes as does into the pages that the students see. We get all teachers, new and experienced, thinking about why they are doing what they are doing. Twenty years of ESL teaching experience comes across in every lesson plan. The students' learning both inside and outside the classroom is taken into consideration with lessons dedicated to what students can do to help their own vocabulary, listening and reading skills.

Image and Flashcard Resources

Easy-to-use, printable image resources for classroom use. We offer comprehensive flashcard collections to enhance your classroom teaching. Each image comes with an option to include text or not giving you the choice over how you use each one. All flashcards available in two teacher-friendly sizes: A4 and super large A3 size.

Board Games and Board Game Templates

Games can be used to create a fun learning environment. Our templates can be adapted for any grammar/vocabulary that you wish to revise with students. We also have board games designed to help you with specific grammar and/or speaking.
