Since the Pandemic – and the importance of keeping socially distant – we’ve been trying to get as many of our resources as we can online. You may have seen the huge library of ESOL resources English at Home have produced for teachers and learners of English (we can never thank our volunteers Julie and Clive enough for this.)
We’ve also been busy trying to support our (learners) and volunteer tutors to get online, embrace Zoom, and learn how to unmute and share screens. It’s not been easy. A lot of trial and error, and a lot of frustration – but we’re getting there, we think. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we now have a small stack of laptops and smartphones we can loan or give away to folks who need them., and we can provide a modest amount of wireless broadband each month to people without.
We’ve tried to capture some of our learning in this new resource – designed for new English at Home Volunteers – but we think – useful to anyone trying to teach English online right now. Have a look and see what you make of it. If you think it’s any good, please use it, or forward it on to someone you know.
As ever, we’re proud to share what we have with anyone who might find it useful. David is responsible for this excellent piece of work btw (although he’s far too modest to say so himself.)
