Learning English for Your Level


Here at the site, the ESL (English as a Second Language) resources have grown tremendously over the years. In order to help you (and your teacher) get the most out of the site, this feature introduces level areas that have been conveniently divided into appropriate materials for each level. There are five levels including:

  • Beginner
  • Lower-intermediate
  • Intermediate
  • Upper-intermediate
  • Advanced

You can choose your level - or your students' level - go to the appropriate category and find grammar, listening and reading comprehension, lesson plans appropriate to the level, vocabulary exercises and quizzes and more. Some of the materials are repeated in various sections when appropriate.

You can start at the beginning and work your way through the materials that become increasingly difficult. If you know your level (or the level of the class you are teaching) head straight to the appropriate page and begin using the materials tailored to your level. Each level has the following resources:

  • Reference Materials - General Techniques and Strategies
  • Grammar Materials
  • Listening Exercises
  • Lesson Plans
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Writing Skills
  • Vocabulary Exercises
Start Your Engines - Go!

Beginner Pages
For people who have never studied English. Or for those of you who are "false" beginners. If you had a few years of English many years ago, this is a good place to start.

Lower - Intermediate Pages
Students with one or two years of English. A good starting point for review. Equivalent to the Cambridge KET exam.

Intermediate Pages
Students with two or more years of English. Good for students who have spent the last few years studying English and want to continue improving. Equivalent to the Cambridge PET exam.

Upper - Intermediate Pages
Students with at least three years of English. This is a good starting point for students who have a strong understanding of the language and want to deepen their knowledge of English. It would be a good place for students who want to work towards the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or the Cambridge First Certificate exam.

Advanced Pages
For students with four or more years of English study. Advanced students can already use English very effectively and want to improve their English especially in conversation, idiomatic and usage skills, as well as advanced writing skills. Students about to take the TOEFL or Cambridge Exams (First Certificate, Proficiency, CAE) will find these pages very helpful.
