Still Have Questions?

How do I know if it’s right for my class?

If your students have been in an English-speaking country for a number of years, use English fluently in the world, and/or work or attend school in English, then this resource may not be challenging enough for them. However, I was intentional about adding in variations to almost every activity, so that you can easily tweak the task to fit your students.

What if I don’t like it?

Don’t worry! If, after purchasing your lesson unit, you find that it’s just not a good fit for you and your students, simply send me an email at jessica@everydayesl.com and I’ll be happy to refund your purchase (and listen to your feedback, so that I can improve).

How much do I need to do to prepare a lesson?

I wanted to make these lessons as easy as possible to use because I know how precious time is as a teacher! Each lesson has a few simple tasks that need to be done beforehand, which are clearly outlined at the beginning of lesson. At most, you’ll need to review the lesson, decide if you’re going to use any of the variations, print out the worksheets, and collect some supplies (like markers, paper, visuals, etc).
