For volunteers who are interested in teaching ESL at the Welcome Center, we have books, magazines, newspapers, and other materials available. We also help new teachers through their first few lessons and in developing lesson plans. Here are a few books we recommend:
- The ESL Teacher’s Book of Lists
- Dictionary of Idioms
- Oxford Picture Dictionary
- Essentials of English Grammar
The best resource for a student is her teacher, and we hope to provide a welcoming and friendly atmosphere that encourages curiosity and inquiry! Sometimes, students look for outside practice, or teachers enjoy sharing lesson plans with one another. We’d like to share some of our favorite resources for ESL teachers and students looking for inspiration, help, or extra practice.
