Useful website for ESL teachers

I came across this website when searching for articles about ESP and CLIL. It is really useful for professional development of ESL teachers.  It contains a lot of things that a teacher may need: Teaching tips; Lesson plans; and a Newsletter with articles about English language teaching in the world. Really useful, and free!

The website, however, looks a bit complicated and hard to navigate. But once you have become familiar with it, everything should be fine. One tip: Look at your right side column for the things you need. Forget the front of the webpage; you can never sort out what is there.

Here goes the link to the website: I hope it's of use to you all.

"Pain in the English"

"Pain in the English" is the name of an interesting and useful website for English learners. I came across it today when I searched the Internet for answers to the question of why "according to me" sounds odd in English, even though we can say "according to her/him/them" and it is perfect English.

The answer provided on the website "Pain in the English" (URL: is detailed and clear. But I should not spoil it for you; better go there and check for yourself.

I am sure you can find tons of other useful answers for your questions about English usage.

Hope you like it. Enjoy!
