Enhance Your Teaching with Our Resources and Training Materials

Our English language resources, trainings, and supplemental materials are designed to make ESL / ESOL teaching and learning accessible and fun. 

With decades of experience, we believe that getting students talking more opens doors for students and teachers to form meaningful connections. Our resources are designed to build confidence and spark important conversations about lives and perspectives, so each person can learn from the other. 

Check out the options below to find all the ESL resources and trainings you need to equip your English program for success. You can also visit our Resource Hub for more videos, tips, and tools.

Conversations on Race and Equity (CORE)

Conversations on Race and Equity is a course comprised of a series of video lessons about race, equity, history, and other engaging topics. As an English teacher, you can play CORE video lessons to introduce new vocabulary and topics, and engage in meaningful conversations with your students.

CORE was developed in partnership with Common Good Collective, and centers around subjects that are sometimes avoided in English language classrooms, such as discrimination, culture, and racial justice. Our vision is that English learners will feel empowered to share their experiences and perspectives about these traditionally challenging topics.

Together, we will work to create cultural awareness and mutual respect, empower English learners with critical knowledge, and equip teachers to continue conversations where English learners are able to share and reflect meaningfully.

Our CORE materials (15 lessons worth of content, plus progress checks, and other materials) are currently available free of charge during our pilot phase. If you are interested in using these materials, you can gain access by completing the request at the link below:
