My English page is a site where you can find resources for teachers and Students. There are very good resources to teach language. The teacher’s resources on this site may be freely used in classrooms in any part of the world. You may cut and paste material and adapt them as you see appropriate. But you cannot distribute the material to others, sell or publish them in any other form.
The exercises are online where you can carry out the short assessment too. It also offers lesson plans, scheme of work for teachers. The platform presents lessons based on daily real life situations where the learner can practice and improve different skills: listening and vocabulary, speaking and pronunciation. Each exercise has its own study page.
It is a really useful tool for Teachers to use in the class because it offers wide range of activities in listening and vocabulary, speaking and pronunciation. Teacher can also use lesson plan, scheme of work. the resources could be shared as well as the files and teaching, material. Students can also access the website to use the material. It also offers an assessment for students to check their learning level. Other areas that are covered are Jokes, Idioms, Lyrics which also makes it interesting way of learning.
Pros and cons:
+ User friendly
+ The exercises are clearly demonstrated for teachers and students to use.
+ Large variety of exercises for teachers and students available to access and to work with.
– Accessing videos is not an easy task because there were no instructions unless we sign in and it may guide us to watch the videos
– Also can’t see any Audio files or podcasts.
I would say definitely recommended tool for teachers and students. Accessing material is not hard at all however IT skills are required. There is a huge variety of exercises which of course helps the student to be engaged. It does not just talk about general and day to day English but covers idioms, jokes and lyrics. You have to log in to access the videos.
