984 FREE Movie Worksheets for Your ESL Classroom Let’s face it: Even the most enthusiastic ESL class sometimes goes through dull periods. No matter how much you switch up the activities and topics, there’s only so much English that your students can absorb at any one time. Still, that limit is sometimes a lot higher than your students believe it is - and the genuine exhaustion caused by a challenging topic, is very different from boredom that comes from too much repetition. When your students are just plain bored of board work, that’s when it’s time to break out one of your “emergency” activities - the ones you know will raise your class’s mood. You’ve probably got some go-to activities of your own - but it never hurts to add some new ones to your arsenal.

The Best Music Websites For Learning English Check out my New York Times post for English Language Learners focuses on using music for language development and includes a student interactive, video, and teaching ideas. I use music a lot in my teaching of English Language Learners. I thought people might find it helpful to see which sites I believe to be the best out there to help teach English — Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced — through music.

Using Music in the ESL Classroom Music is the universal language of mankind. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow When students make a major breakthrough in learning, it is music to a teacher's ears. There is nothing more rewarding for a teacher, than seeing their students smile and laugh while they learn.

Some Relatively Easy Ways for Students to Create Podcasts Last night I received the following questions in an email from a reader named Pat. I'm sure that Pat is not the only teacher to wonder about these questions so I've turned my answers into a blog post. I would like to make a podcast where two students are debating a topic. Is this outdated? Is there another platform where we can put audio, possibly some pictures to go with a presentation? A place where students can access it without a log in or having to have an itunes account.

Free ESL (English as a Second Language) Lesson Plans to Download English Assistant | English MP3s | Private Lessons | American Slang This page was originally designed to share my materials with other English teaching assistants in France, especially those who have no experience in teaching ESL yet. I've also included worksheets that I used for private English lessons in France as well as some of the materials I used in my ESL classes in the United States.

The Best Online Karaoke Sites For English Language Learners I’ve used music a lot with English Language Learners. Singing feels much less threatening to many who are learning a new language. Karaoke is a good language-development activity, and there are quite a few karaoke sites on the Internet. I thought it would be a good topic for a short “The Best…” list. In order to make it on this list, a site has to be available free-of-charge (or at least some of its resources have to be free), easy-to-use, require no download, and allow students — either alone or in a group — to record themselves singing. A link to their performance can then be posted on a student or teacher website.

The Best Popular Movies/TV Shows For ESL/EFL (& How To Use Them) You might want to see our book excerpt, Eight Ways to Use Video With English Language Learners I’ve written a guest post for Edutopia titled 5-Minute Film Festival: 8 Videos for ELL Classrooms. Check Out my related New York Times post Songs For Children - help children learn English. We started to have so many songs that were suitable for younger learners that we made this separate section only for those songs. Some of these songs are suitable for the very youngest of learners, i.e. three or four years of age. And the suitability of the songs goes up to early teens. If you have any ideas for improvement to this part of the site or to send in song-based lesson plans, don't hesitate to contact us. We also have a Christmas Songs page too!
