As Covid-19 changes the way we teach and learn, we can offer teachers a number of free online materials which can help with professional development and shift classes into an online environment.
Many teachers are finding themselves in an unfamiliar situation of having to teach their classes online, with little or no experience. That's why we've organised a series of webinars to offer guidance in key areas. All webinars are recorded, so don't worry if you miss them, you can always watch the recording in your own time.
There are more than 100 lesson plans and activities specifically designed for the primary school classroom for you to select. All our lesson plans and activities are divided by levels and you’ll find a range of topics from seasons and festivals, to ideas about using flashcards to help improve grammar.
There are more than 200 lesson plans and activities specifically designed for the secondary classroom for you to select.
