Encourage fluency! Your students will talk about their experiences and opinions.
Your students want to learn about different cultures, travel, business, and discuss real issues affecting them now.
Encourage your students to build English fluency with communicative activities such as role-plays, discussions, and conversations about topics that are essential for them.
Every handout and worksheet includes detailed Teaching Notes.
The Teaching Notes include tips, techniques, and methods for teaching the range of activities used in our handouts as well as the answers for questions and activities. Read them before you teach your class and be confident teaching the material covered. A Student Copy without Teaching Notes is also provided so you can use our handouts to teach in your Online Classes.
Our Handout and Lesson Plan Library is growing and improving everyday!
Feedback from our teachers and subscribers helps us to improve our Handouts and Teaching Notes. Handouts get updated and the Teaching Notes improved to reflect suggestions from our teachers. Check the ‘Update date’ of the Handouts you use regularly to make sure you are teaching with the latest version.
Students are introduced to and review English grammar.
Grammar is taught using fun, communicative activities, matching and gap fill activities as well as scripted conversations and role-plays. Verb tenses, prepositions, conditionals, countable and uncountable nouns, comparatives and superlatives, articles, modals for advice, permission and obligation, and much more!
Our Current Events series covers news from around the world and includes audio.
These topics are trending now and your adult and young adult ESL students want to learn how to talk about them. Each ‘In the News’ Handout has 2 or 3 pages of lesson material aimed at Elementary: A2 to Advanced: C2 English learners. Each ‘In the News’ current events Handout features an audio track so your students can practice listening to native English speakers.
Help your students explore new vocabulary and build English fluency by guiding them through a series of activities that challenge and engage them.
Sit back and watch your students using English with enthusiasm. This English series uses original high-quality color pictures that look great and your students will appreciate that, but don’t worry, they look great in black and white as well! Have one of these on hand and we’ve got you covered.

Easy to use anywhere.
I’m in Japan for one year and teach private English classes to a group of lovely students while I travel around Japan – I love Kyoto. We study in cafes or at students’ homes so I can print lessons before I need them that day. My students and I don’t need textbooks.
Living and working in Japan for a year
We like current events
I have been using esllessonhandouts.com for a few months now and check every weekend for new current events lessons.

No need to carry textbooks.
The worksheets are great to use and easy for students to follow. I teach weekly private lessons at cafes and I check for new handouts each week. I don’t need to carry or photocopy textbooks for my classes.

A break from our textbooks.
I teach English at a few Japanese companies around Nagoya in Japan and use ESL Lesson Handouts to give my classes a break from our business text book. Also, I use worksheets to build on grammar we study in the textbook.

Great for all ages!
I teach English to medium-sized classes at community centers and businesses in my city. My students are a mix of men and women of all ages. We use your current event handouts in the last week of every month and your grammar handouts to compliment our classroom textbook.

Perfect for Online classes!
I started using your site [ESL Lesson Handouts] after switching to Online classes because of Coronavirus. Accessible on my phone, I can easily print lessons before private classes or email them to students.
Private English Teacher
Complements our curriculum.
I am an English teacher based in Hong Kong. My students are mostly young company workers who need English in their jobs. We use a popular business English textbook but it’s nice to have worksheets that use English grammar in other ways. My students enjoy the opportunity to speak English.
