Skills Lessons with EnglishClub

Teaching ESL is often divided into the four major (or macro) skills: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. Some teachers approach all of these skills as one with whole-language teaching, and others teach them separately. The following links will take you to areas of EnglishClub that contain activities, lessons and practice in each of the four major skills. Some of these activities can be assigned for homework and others can be printed and used in the classroom. This page will help save you time when it comes to planning your classes and lessons.
