Hi strangers! I’m getting ready to launch ESL Airplane, a site devoted to providing teachers with creative classroom resources for English Language Learners. I just wanted to say hi and let you know a little about what to expect.
One of my main goals for this site is to share some good beginner-friendly resources that can be adapted for use with other levels. I love teaching lower-level English classes (B1 and below). I have a hard time finding good materials for them, though, so I often make my own. I’m hoping to put together a collection of the types of materials that I’m always looking for along with tips on how you can adapt them for your classes. You’ll soon see a mix of conversation questions, weird news stories, picture prompts, creative news stories, and more.
My teaching materials tend to be silly and kinda whimsical. I like my classes to be fun and lighthearted even though I’m serious about teaching. If that sounds like the kind of classroom you’re going for, please come back in a few days! I’m still working on setting up, trying to organize a million ideas into neat little categories, but I’ll have a bunch of new stuff here for you soon!
In the meantime, please take a moment to say hello and introduce yourself in the comment box. Where are you from? Who do you teach? What types of ESL materials do you wish you could find?
