This site is a co-production between the British Broadcasting Corporation and the British Council. Both organisations receive funding from the UK government for their work. The project is non-commercial and as such all content and material on the site is and will always be free to access.
We have designed this site to act in three ways:
1. as a forum: to help you as teachers of English exchange your thoughts, ideas and materials
2. as a practical resource: for materials, activities and ideas for your teaching
3. as a theoretical and historical archive: where you can read about teaching ideas and techniques.
The site is divided into three main sections:
1. Think: where you can find teachers' articles on different aspects of teaching, from classroom practice to learning theory
2. Try: where you will be able to find practical activities which you can download to use in your class, as well as ideas for creating your own activities
3. Talk: where you can contribute - share your ideas and thoughts on any of the articles or other content.
The materials on this site are designed for non-native speaker teachers of English working predominantly in secondary education in state schools around the world. As the content increases we hope it will be of interest to teachers of a wider range of age groups and working in other kinds of teaching institutions.
A great resource for lovers of esl, tesol, tesl, tefl and toefl salad.
