What Makes Our Lessons Different?
Teachers Save Time
Reduce lesson planning and gain freedom in the classroom. With all students busy, the teacher can casually roam around the classroom and offer assistance wherever needed.
Students Learn by Doing
Minutes after beginning each lesson, classes often become noisy. At times, very noisy. Why? Students, in pairs or small groups, actively engage in completing the lesson task. They use English to learn English.
Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing
Oral communication is important. Listening and speaking have priority in our lessons; students need to carefully listen to each other. Reading is also important for the success of the lessons. The amount of writing required varies.
Fun for Teachers & Students
We believe students learn better when having fun. Our lessons range from silly to serious but each has a solid task-specific educational goal including grammar usage, vocabulary building and fluency improvement to name a few.
Geometric Shapes - August 19, 2016Lesson Collection #1 - Lesson 23
In pairs, students describe the exact coordinates of nine different geometric shapes printed on their worksheets. All of the shapes are laid out on a grid that covers the background of the worksheets.
A typical description (for drawing a hexagon) might sound like this: Draw a diagonal line from 31H to 33G. From that point, draw another diagonal line to 35H. From 35H, draw a horizontal line to 35K. Draw another diagonal line from 35K to 33L. From there, draw another diagonal line to 31K. Finally, draw a horizontal line connecting 35K and 31H.
During the course of this activity, students will learn the names of common geometric shapes as well as practice vocabulary including horizontal, vertical, diagonal, midway between, inside curve, outside curve, a little above/below, a little to the right/left of and verbs including draw, connect and place.
To accurately duplicate each geometrical shape, students have to give clear instructions and partners need to listen carefully. If a shape is drawn askew, students will automatically want to know where the fault occurred. This may lead into a brief discussion which is also an important part of this interactive lesson.
Congratulations! Your lesson worksheets are SUPERB!!! My students really enjoy them and are thrilled with the fun activities. I really can’t say enough.

Chris Polonis - ESL Teacher
This is absolutely the best site i’ve ever seen for EFL teaching materials!
Thanks so much!
I’m very impressed with the amount of work you have invested in these excellent lesson worksheets. Your efforts have resulted in some very fine material which my students enjoy. Thanks!
A HUGE THANKS !!
Because of what you do at EFL4U, my school is one of the best in the city. I think it’s really important for students to have fun, to act, to react and learn English by using it! With your active lessons, my students do all of that, and more….
Grammar is taught after or before the lessons… and all of my students learn while having lots of fun.
Kurt, EFL4U IS THE BEST THING THAT I HAVE RECEIVED. EVERY YEAR, YOU ARE MY SANTA CLAUS.
Betty Tokeshi - EFL Teacher
There are millions of EFL ESL books here in the library, but I use your worksheets more than any of the others combined.
I love them. My students love them.
