TEFL Resources, Lesson Plans, & Handouts

Working to Create TEFL Lesson Plan

Hey English teacher! I’m always forgetting what great TEFL sites I find resources, swipe lesson plans, and download pdf handouts from.

So, even though I’m happy to share these sites with you…this list is more for my own greedy motives so I can keep track of my top favorite TEFL sites.

But meantime…you’re welcome to hog up some of the resources on these sites for yourself. 🙂

  1. ESLflow.com – Great resources and pdf handouts based around popular TEFL themes
  2. UsingEnglish.com – More handouts and exercises for your ESL students which will minimize your lesson planning time
  3. Internet TESOL Journal – You’ll love the conversation questions you can use in the classroom to get students talking about a wide range of activities
  4. Breaking News English – New lessons based around current events with lots of exercises and resources ready to just print and teach
  5. Busy Teachers – Thousands of ESL worksheets and lesson ideas to get you up and running fast
  6. EFL Classroom – More great lesson plan ideas for your English classes with lots of video suggestions

I’ll keep adding more as I find them…so the number will probably change at the top.

Travel Resources and TEFL Lesson Plans – With PDF Handouts

Travel Resources and TEFL Lesson Plans - With PDF Handouts


Hey English teacher! Looking for some great ESL lesson plans and handouts on travel and tourism to liven up the classroom for your students?


This week we’ve been focusing on travel resources for ‘Module 201 – Joe Goes To China’ at XOKenglish.com.br which means that we’ve been gathering extra material on EFL flight and hotel reservation exercises, restaurant ordering dialogues, and just about anything else that goes along with the theme.


Anyway…here are some of the resources I located this morning and will be sharing in our next teacher meeting…but I figured it could help a lot of other English teachers as well.

Restaurant Ideas  – Crazy and funny ideas for restaurant role-play and dialogues to help students with ordering food and drinks…as well as paying the bill.
