Hey, adult ESL teacher! Glad you’re here!
A quick introduction of who I am:
My name is Bethany Anderson and I’ve been teaching adult ESL since 2004 (and I’ve pretty much loved every minute of it)! I’m currently pursuing my Master’s in TESOL from Azusa Pacific University along with my other full-time duties as Mama to three niños ages 7 and under. After learning Spanish in college, I spent time improving my fluency in Mexico, Chile, and Colombia and now enjoy using my Spanish at the local Mexican bakery and with neighbors and friends in the small Iowa town (with a majority Latino population!) where my husband and I live.
I’ve taught ESL to adults in nonprofit and community college programs (both credit and noncredit) as well as in on-site Workplace English classes. I started Anderson Language Center to equip Spanish-speaking adult learners to use English in their daily lives. In addition to resources for students, I want to provide resources for teachers “in the trenches”, inspiring you to be the best version of your teacher self! I want to share some of the tools I have developed, useful resources I come across, and good practices and tips from other great teachers. Sound good?
Guess what, amazing teacher? Here’s a fabulous freebie for you!
I haven’t met a teacher in my life who would ever turn down a free lesson plan, and I want to send you a packet of 8 lesson plans that I wrote! The lesson series is called Real Life English and it’s focused on “everyday life” situations (ordering food at a restaurant, scheduling a doctor’s appointment, finding a book at the library, etc.) that adult students routinely encounter in their daily lives.
Just provide your name and email below and I’ll send you the Real Life English lesson plan packet and I’ll also periodically (once a month at most!) send you resources that I think will be helpful to you as an adult ESL teacher. (If you don’t find these emails relevant or useful, you can unsubscribe at any time!)
What you get:
- 8 complete Real Life English lesson plans
- Report worksheet to help students track their success with Real Life English assignments
- Real Life English certificate of completion
Enter your info below and I’ll send it your way!
