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.
The Stock Market - March 23, 2015Lesson Collection #3 - Lesson 15
Using real English to track the profit / loss of one's imaginary stock portfolio.
There are three worksheets with this lesson, Week One, My Portfolio Update and My Partner's Portfolio Update.
Using a current newspaper (and with a calculator on hand) students purchase five stocks. They must keep track of the name and code of the stock, the price per stock, the number of stocks purchased and a total amount of money spent. Then, in pairs (or small groups), students share their purchase information with their partners.
At a follow up time, students look at their stock performance (using the Update Worksheet). They have the option to keep the stocks, sell some or buy new ones. This is again shared with their partners using the My Partner's Portfolio Update Worksheet.
Because this lesson is a real-life simulation of tracking stock, students become very animated as they watch their stocks rise and fall.
That’s one of the greatest ESL sites on the web (the best one when it comes to activities).

I’d like to thank you for the wonderful worksheets; they are very useful, time-saving as well as entertaining, especially for students who don’t want
to learn English.
I have been using these fun EFL4U lessons since the site began many years ago! Apart from making my life easier where time is concerned, the lessons are really well prepared, educational, fun to use and my students love them!
Well done, Kurt!
This is absolutely the best site i’ve ever seen for EFL teaching materials!
Thanks so much!
