More people in more places are speaking English than ever before. As worldwide dependence on English has spread, so has the need for people of all ages and language backgrounds to learn it. Use this English as a Second Language (ESL) Web Guide to find lesson plans designed for both adult and child learners along with valuable resources to help adults prepare for important tests. A Spanish-language version of the Guide is also available.

ESL for Children

Teaching ESL for children may be easier than teaching adults because children are just beginning to learn the intricacies of English pronunciation, spelling and grammar.

Insights for ESL for Children

  • There are many great books available for teaching English as a second language for children. One for younger students is “Edutainment”; it explores ESL teaching through fun and games.
  • We usually avoid recommending sites that are mere directories of links to outside sources. In our Education Web Guides, we make exceptions to this rule for lesson plans and student activities to provide you with as much helpful content as possible. Make sure to approach every directory with caution and evaluate the links before using a tool in the classroom.
