How can Twinkl help ESL online teachers and eTEFL Online Graduates?

Twinkl have been providing educators across the world with high-quality, trusted teaching and learning resources for over a decade. They’re all written and checked by their wonderful team of experienced educators, and there are hundreds of thousands of resources to download, with new ones added daily. 


Currently, they have over 900,000 resources, all available 24/7 and bursting with essential (and some not-so-essential!) teaching, planning and assessment materials. Their Customers Care team is available 24/6 and can help you create personalised resources for all of their members upon request!


Twinkl also has a dedicated team of ESL teachers who create resources specially for those teaching the English language. They create monthly reading comprehension packs for kids and teenagers, ready-made ESL lessons, games, worksheets and more! They also have a community of over 15,000 ESL teachers on Facebook and (in our opinion) some of the funniest English language-themed videos on the internet. 


But hold on… What about online teachers? What does Twinkl offer for us?



Level 1 of their brand new online curriculum for ESL beginners has just launched! Each lesson is available in both PowerPoint and Google Slides formats. Their ESL Curriculum for Beginners includes everything your English students will need to start speaking the language.  It is jam-packed with different types of activities that will help them to understand each topic in the best way possible. There are also interactive worksheets for students to use after each lesson to review the lesson’s learning.  

Best of all, the first lesson is available for free! 


Online Lessons

All of these lessons have been designed for ESL teachers and range from grammar lessons, to role-play activities and phonics materials. Use them as your core lesson or to supplement your existing lesson plans.
