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.
Problem Solvers - September 19, 2016Lesson Collection #2 - Lesson 23
A favorite lesson among students, Problem Solvers gives a small group of English learners the chance to role play a variety of problems. The group receives a stack of 16 cards with a unique problem printed on each.
One student picks a random Problem Solvers card and reads it to her group-mates. The other students ask all kinds of questions to get as many details as possible before they offer suggestions as to how to solve the problem.
The student with the problem tries to answer the questions in a believable role-play manner. When there are no further questions, students compete to offer the best solution to the problem they can think of.
This is a wonderfully natural way for students to communicate with each other by asking for information and offering suggestions. Even though the problems are role-play situations, students often become very involved and push themselves to the limits of their abilities in order to assist one of their classmates.
I sincerely thank you and your entire team of wonderful professionals who are contributing tremendously to making the teaching of English a lot more fun and easy!
That’s one of the greatest ESL sites on the web (the best one when it comes to activities).

I have been teaching English in Latvia for 5 years now to such varied student groups as Music College, military and Bible College students. I came across your site about a year ago and it has been incredibly helpful in my teaching. I have found all of my students - from the highest ranking military officer to the most ordinary school-kid - enjoy your lessons. The worksheets and the ideas are fantastic! Thank you so much for making the English teacher’s work easier, more varied and much more enjoyable!!!
Thanks for all your lessons. They have been a great help.
My students and I have lots of fun using them.
