Struggling To Stay Afloat In This New World Of Online ESL Teaching? Here's Your Ticket Back To The Shore.

Take the stress out of preparation and instantly engage your learners with this amazing collection of easy-to-use resources perfect for teaching ESL from the comfort of your own home!

This bundle showcases a collection of high-quality lessons which have been carefully tailored by a Cambridge DELTA-qualified teacher to ensure suitability for distance learning.

What's included in the bundle?

This bundle contains 16 completely stand-alone lessons in which learners compete in an enjoyable competition to be the first to deduce the meaning of several idioms using a combination of images and examples.

The lessons also include matching exercises and speaking practice in which the learners have the opportunity to use the newly learned idioms in a conversation with their classmates or teacher.

I'm not so comfortable with distance learning. How will this bundle help me?

I know how challenging distance learning is, especially for new teachers. That's why I created these resources to present everything in an easy to follow step by step way that saves you time, engages your students and guarantees results.

Who are you and why should I trust you?

Hi! My name is Robbie and I love to create digital resources that make life easier for teachers.

I've been teaching ESL since 2013 and during that period I've worked as a Senior Teacher Trainer, Assistant Director of Studies, and have given talks to ESL teachers around the world about teaching methodology and the benefits of incorporating technology into the classroom.

In 2018 at the request of the Ministry of Education of Kazachstan, I delivered an online series of webinars to over 2000 Kazakhstani English teachers aimed at improving the quality of English teaching in that country.

What about your qualifications?

I have a Cambridge DELTA in Understanding Language, Methodology and Resources for Teaching and an ELT Specialism in Motivating Young Learners.

Now then, that's enough about me... let's talk more about how this bundle will help you!

I'm not tech-savvy. Is this content difficult to use?

Not at all! Download the bundle and you're good to go! All the work has already been done for you!

Will these resources work with Google Slides?

Totally! Just upload the resources to Google Drive and open them using slides.

I'm back in the classroom now. Is this content only suitable for distance learning?

Absolutely not! It will work great in the classroom too!

Can I use these lessons in the classroom too?

These lessons are fully suitable for BOTH distance learning and in-classroom use.

Can I make edits to the material?

The lessons included in this bundle are fully customisable allowing you to make any changes you deem necessary to more specifically tailor these lessons to your learners.

Tell me more about why my learners will love these lessons?

After first stumbling across it several years this lesson formula went on to become a total game-changer for me when it came to teaching idioms! Regardless of whether it's online or in the classroom, it has never let me down to date. Each lesson introduces a selection of idioms based on a common theme (animals, food, relationships etc..). First, a single idiom is shown accompanied by a humorous image. Learners are then encouraged to volunteer guesses, no matter how outlandish, as to what the idiom might mean (this can also be done as a competition with students competing individually or in teams to see who can arrive at the closest meaning first). Once the teacher has amassed enough guesses, an example is revealed (triggered by an animation within the presentation), and students can determine who, if anyone, arrived at the correct meaning. A point is then awarded accordingly to that individual or team. This is immediately followed by a matching exercise and conversation questions so students are provided with valuable speaking practice at using the idioms in the correct context.
