QualityTime-ESL: Effective English Teaching


WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU. ALL OUR DOCUMENTS ARE FREE. You do not have to sign up or give your email address.

This site is essentially for TEACHERS, but there is a specific section for LEARNERS.

If you are a LEARNER (A2-C1), go to the SPECIAL PAGES FOR YOU.

If you are a TEACHER, stay on this page for information and links.

We are rewriting the whole site, so please excuse the mistakes!

To help students and teachers, our series of FREE ORAL EXERCISES go from very easy to most challenging. They have been written to address levels from A2 to C1. The primary purpose is to encourage students to "speak" as much as possible using "correct language."

Our podcasts offer SCRIPTS and WORKSHEETS, allowing students to work effectively on exercises in labs, on smartphones, or on computers with headphones. We give advice on the use of scripts.

A motivated learner trains for English just like a sport. If students practice hard, whatever their level, they will soon improve their English and, above all, SPEAK without mistakes and fluently!

Interactive Podcasts (A2-C1) and even a few for teachers dealing with complete beginners):

You can also find these podcasts on iTunes by typing my name "Marianne Raynaud." But the podcasts are listed starting with the most difficult or popular.

The QualityTime-ESL Podcasts begin with very easy exercises (A2) and follow a fairly logical progression to C1. Our second series, Your English Podcasts, offers variety and can be used with most levels simultaneously. "QualityTime Podcasts" are mostly for independent work, while "Your English Podcasts" lend themselves to pair or group work.

Students can refer to Google Translate for approximate equivalents if they don’t understand the instructions or texts.

"QualityTime" is an allusion to a term often used by busy Americans to refer to those precious moments we spend with our children when they are growing up. Read more…
