Coming in January 2021

December 17, 2020

It's been a busy year for the ESL Library publishing team as you can see from our What's New This Year? list. We'll be starting a new list next month for 2021, so be sure to follow us as we turn a fresh page!

Here's a look at a few things that are coming up first in the new year.



Healthcare Workers

In this upcoming lesson from our Word Bank section, beginners will learn and review important vocabulary for healthcare workers.


Weather (Nouns)

We're working on a new set of weather-themed lessons for our English Basics section. The first lesson gives literacy students practice with common weather nouns.


Finding the Washroom

Do you teach your students washroom, restroom, or bathroom, and in what context? Our American editor is currently working on some important updates to the US version of this Functional English lesson.



At the Hospital

In this upcoming resource from Language Scenes, students will review vocabulary they might need in an emergency room.


Our video department has big plans for 2021. The first few videos of the year will be a video for practicing the ABCs and a new grammar video on adjectives. Stay tuned!

I teach brand Newcomers (predominantly from Central America) and some do not have any literacy skills in their L1. My students are in 6th, 7th and 8th grade (some are 15 years old) so the younger kid stuff doesn't fly with them-
You are re-building your material to include this population and reach them in non-baby-ish/childish ways- I appreciate you!
I love what you are doing! Please keep it up!

Hi Miss Mac,
Thank you so much for letting us know! This is an initiative we've been working on for a few years and we're thrilled that you're finding our literacy materials useful with your newcomer teens. Best of luck with your teaching!
