Hey, ESL teacher! Glad you’re here!
My name is Bethany Anderson and I’ve been teaching adult ESL for the past decade plus (and I’ve pretty much loved every minute of it)! I have an M.A. in TESOL and I’ve taught for nonprofit organizations, businesses, and community college programs.
I started Anderson Language Center to equip Spanish-speaking adult learners to use English in their daily lives. In addition serving students, I 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 as well as good practices and tips from other great teachers. Sound good? Have a look at some of my resources for teachers below.
Marco Polo Practice Group
Are you interested in exploring a tool to help your students practice listening and speaking outside the classroom? The presentation below walks you step-by-step through how to use the app Marco Polo.
After installing the Marco Polo app on your phone or mobile device, follow this link to join a practice group for teachers where you can experiment with the app and share ideas of how to use Marco Polo as a conversation tool with your students.
A fabulous freebie just 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!
