About Us

We develop resources for professional English teachers around the world.

We believe that in order to learn a language, students must be interested in the content of each lesson. We have relevant, thought‑provoking materials that focus on real‑world issues, historical events, and natural dialogues geared toward teens and adults. We also have kid‑friendly lessons for young learners and middle schoolers as well as lessons for literacy classrooms.

ESL Library was founded in 2002 as a resource site for English teachers. Our materials are used in thousands of classrooms in more than 100 countries around the world. The lessons we develop are intended to enhance, complement, or supplement your own ideas and curriculum. Every month we create and add new materials to the site. Unlike your core textbook, our library of resources continues to grow.
