    Qustions about ESL TeenStuff »

    What is it and who made it?

    ESL TeenStuff is a resource website for ESL teachers of teenagers. The website and all of its resources have been built by the ESL KidStuff team.

     

    Why did you make it?

    We frequently receive emails from ESL KidStuff members asking if we also offer materials for teens. Like most ESL teachers, we teach a wide variety of ages, including teens. We've looked for good online resources for this age group and found that it is hugely under-reperesented, so we decided to create ESL TeenStuff.

     

    What materials does it offer?

    The main focus of the materials is the lesson texts. These are styled like pages from a textbook and are available to download and print (as PDF files) and/or show with a projector (PowerPoint slides).

    Examples of lesson texts:

    ESL teens lesson texts

     

    Examples of lesson PowerPoint slides:

    EST Teens lesson slides

     

    Each lesson also comes with accompanying worksheets and supplementary materials which can be downloaded, printed and given to your students.

     

    Examples of lesson worksheets and supplementary materials:

    ESL teens worksheets

     

    Are your materials created for different levels?

    Yes! We have used a level system for our texts, with lessons for beginners right through to advanced students.

    See more information on our levels here.

     

    Is there a fee?

    Just like here at ESL KidStuff, there is a small membership fee in order to download the materials. Prices are extremely reasonable and allow us to continue working on the site, creating more materials and providing tips and advice to teachers.

    Our current prices are shown here.

     

    Do you offer free samples?

    Yes! You can download free samples of of our lessons and supplements from our website.
