An ESL Development Course (Free)

This short ESL teacher development course concerns teachers whose students have studied English for at least two years, in other words students who are not complete beginners. This course is not a substitute for formal courses which give certification or other diplomas that are valid in the workplace. I only wish to help teachers who cannot afford those formal online or face-to-face courses.

First we will look at what students don’t like and then at what they do like doing. We will offer ideas about how to gain the respect of your students and get them to be autonomous learners. We will indicate files with exercises and activities that will work well with any students and above all help them to progress.

This ESL teacher development course is free, but we would appreciate it if teachers could purchase some of the materials available in the store to help us finance this website, which exists without any advertising. And if teachers are really interested in my ideas, I advise you to purchase QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book- DVD or downloadable versions which has twenty chapters of explanations plus over 1,500 customizable files with hundreds of exercises and activities plus numerous very effective listening comprehensions with worksheets. There are many examples of student work and even ten-minute films by students.

Moreover, I am willing to come to your school or institution and organize workshops with your colleagues. If you are interested in such workshops or have any questions you can contact me here.
