Introducing Ready-Made ESL Library Folders

October 22, 2020

Do you use Folders to create your own modules or courses? This week, we released our latest feature: ESL Library Folders. You will find these in the Class Prep drop-down menu under Folders. Toggle to ESL Library Folders to find preset folders that you can use for inspiration or to teach a ready-made course. If you've ever wondered what to teach when, these folders are for you!

In each ESL Libray Folder, you'll find: 

  • Teachers' Notes (housed on our blog)
  • Introductory Resources (e.g., Class List, Attendance Sheet)
  • Content (in a suggested order, including lessons, resources, customized flashcard sets, and blog posts)
  • Grammar Tests, Review, or Assessment (not yet available in all courses)

There are three types of ESL Library Folders: 

  • age-based courses
  • level-based courses (for teen to adult)
  • language target- or theme-based modules (more coming soon)

Coming Soon

We have lots of plans in store for this new feature as well as many more courses in progress. The first phase of ESL Library Folders are view-only (you cannot add/delete content or change the sort order). However, in future phases, you will be able to:

  • save an ESL Library Folder to your own Folders to make it customizable (Now available! See Step 6.)
  • share your Folders with other ESL Library members
  • receive Folders from other ESL Library members
Not an ESL Library member?

Get unlimited access to 1,000+ lessons and 3,000+ flashcards.

Hello
ESL library is a great source of teaching materials. It covers the fourth skills. The assessment models are interesting. The exercises provide a clear feed back about the student's achievement.

I took a quick look today and found it really interesting. I can't wait until I have more time to view what is there and actually try it.

You guys are my go-to for every lesson. I love the content, the digital lessons and specially your how to videos. The only thing I would like to see is assessments that are based on authentic materials and RWTs as we are required to produce these as part of our PBLA teaching practices. Thanks for all your hard work!!

Thanks for your comment and your suggestions, Nikki! We often have real-world materials on our minds these days, and will continue to develop more. You may want to check out our Real-World Reading (https://esllibrary.com/resource_categories/128/resources), True Grammar Stories (https://esllibrary.com/courses/129/lessons), and English with the Washington Post (https://esllibrary.com/courses/133/lessons) sections.

Guys, this is great. I remember when I started using ESL Library and got a little confused about where to start. Even today, I still have some trouble figuring out an order of lessons for adult students who are starting to learn the language from scratch. These folders will help me so much!

We're so happy to hear that, Diego! There is so much content on our site, and we thought it was important to give some guidance and ideas for creating curricula.
