Online ESL Curriculum
Last Updated: Sept 10, 2021
After many hours of searching, I have compiled this ever growing list of online ESL curriculum.
This list is in no particular order. The list may change to keep it up to date and relevant.
“English Adventure is a fun, 3 level online course for elementary students. Each level contains a total of 20 lessons which focus on specific structures and lexical areas that progress in a natural, steady pace.
English Adventure is aligned to The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and covers A1 and A2.
The course uses American English and provides language learning through reading, speaking activities, writing, phonics, games, and extension tasks. Fun characters continuing throughout the course maintain student interest and involvement.
The lessons were designed to teach one student online for 30 minutes but you can easily adjust the pace to make the lesson longer or shorter. The slides are in 16:9 presentation format which makes them great to teach online through zoom, classin, or any other teaching platform. Each Lesson on average contains more than 30 slides.
You will get lessons both in pdf format and also as individual image slides so that you can rearrange the pages and lessons any way you like. You can even create Power point presentations from the individual image slides.”
Price: $39 one time payment for all 60 Lessons.
