ESL lesson plans for complete beginners | Adult course

Welcome to our collection of ESL lesson plans aimed at adult learners with little to no experience of the English language. The course aims to act as a springboard into our A1 level materials. Depending on the class size and level of your students, lessons should take between 60 and 90 minutes. Each lesson plan contains suggested warmers, board work, several low-prep classroom activities, a homework suggestion and a game.

If you find the free materials useful and want complete access to all of our teaching resources, you should consider becoming a member. Also, if you have an Android or iOS device, check out the TEFL Handbook app. We have designed it for use in the classroom, and it gives teachers offline access to all of our lesson plans.
