Indeed, I’ve paid for English lessons even when I was an employee; and this helped me a lot. However, when you learn with free printable courses, you have many advantages provided that you are sufficiently motivated to learn by yourself.

  6. Thank you for this. I never realised that there were so many free platforms available to learn the English language on. Sometimes though, when something is free, we lack the motivation to see the course through, so one needs to be self disciplined and highly motivated to get through the courses. I like your idea of combining the resources so that you can use different platforms, as they all teach English in a different way, so you will learn a lot faster in this way.

    • Hi Lizzy. Thanks for your comments. The main challenge I find facing most beginners is their confidence level. Most of them are so afraid of making mistakes in front of others that it keeps them hiding within themselves. They believe they will become fluent in time, which they will if they practice, but they continue to speak in their native language rather than talking with others in English. Then, they become frustrated because they feel they aren’t progressing. I tell them it’s because they spend too much time speaking their own language and not enough time speaking English. I tell them that making mistakes is part of the learning processs. Some listen and break out of their comfort zone. Too many don’t.

    I remember when I was a new immigrant some years back and I needed high scores for the IELTS as a requirement to get my professional license, the internet was my go-to resource for practice and suggestions. 

    Until now, I’m still struggling with my listening skills and understanding what the other persons are talking about even if I am just in the room with them.

      Based on what I’ve seen of your writing, assuming English is not your first language, you seem to have a very good grasp of English. Good job.

      Yes, combining resources is my default method for most everything and anything, not just as it applies to learning English or any language. The more resources we have, the better.

      As far as the effectiveness of printable lessons go, it is but one source. I don’t recommend that anyone rely solely on it but everyone is different. If it helps or if it’s all they can do, then that’s what they should do. However, to truly learn a language, as much immersion as possible is best, which supports what I said in the article and the above paragraph.

    I have just read your article about free printable English lessons for beginners. I think it’s great that they are free, it’s always helpful to come across free products especially when one is setting out on a new journey. I wish something was available like this when I was trying to learn Spanish 🙂 I like the fact that you encourage beginners who use the lessons to contact a language partner, tutor, or teacher. It helps immensely to have another’s insight or feedback when learning something new. Offering your services as a certified and licensed English teacher is pro-active too.

    The only thing I came across which may need attention is the following line:  the worksheet(s) you may be looking may not be here on this website,

      For example, a blog, a long, a wonderful, and an idea, an apple, an order.

      I hope you understand.

    I feel like when it comes to learning new languages, regardless of the language, they tend to feel overwhelming and the learning process feels intimidating and overly complex. Learning sheets provide a more comfortable, self-paced form of learning that can be frequently looked back and reflected on. I never really thought about them or using them before.

    Based on reading this today, I think that I’ll also start to incorporate this into my own practices, I can imagine it being quite useful.

The way you’ve organized the lessons into thematic units and varying difficulty levels is particularly helpful. It allows me to tailor the content to the specific needs and levels of my students. The inclusion of practical exercises and real-life scenarios in the lessons makes the learning process more engaging and relevant for the students. I’ve already implemented some of your worksheets in my classes, and the response from students has been overwhelmingly positive. They find the material challenging yet approachable, which is key in maintaining their interest and motivation. Keep up the fantastic work – resources like these are invaluable to educators and students alike!

  33. Even as someone who was born and raised in the US, I find great value in this article. It is definitely a good thing to sharpen your language skills. Especially for a writer like myself! 

    I like that the lessons are free! this definitely makes them more appealing for someone who already knows the language, and doesn’t want to pay just to sharpen up. Great article, and I look forward to reading more of your future content!

  35. Neat list of resources!  I like the steps you have listed for utilizing these, especially the first 2: to set clear goals and make a schedule.  I am finding that there are many areas in my life where good intentions remain intentions until I define what I’m trying to accomplish and WHEN. Free time doesn’t tend to show up in busy adult lives, you pretty much need a schedule!

    My one concern with trying to learn a language with printables is that it could be scattered learning that doesn’t lead to mastery. Pockets of knowledge here and there don’t always turn into a fluent grasp of language.

    Reply
    • Hi Jessica, thanks for your comments. I’m glad you think the resources are neat. Yes, having clear goals and a schedule are important for so many things. 

      I can relate to the good intentions you mentioned. Maybe you’ve heard the saying that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Makes sense to me.

      I agree with you about trying to learn a language simply by the use of printables. Scattered learning is a perfect term.

      However, there are people who either cannot afford to pay for instruction or won’t for whatever reason. I make as much information as possible free for the taking. If and when people need help, I hope they will come to me.

      I have my own philosophy about how to teach English to people who are trying to learn it. My results speak for themselves.  However, not everyone learns the same way. 

      Personally, I believe printables are used to supplement and enhance. I’m not so sure they’re best for trying to rely solely on them though.

      As a teacher, I only want to work with people who want to learn. That’s why my focus is on adults.

    • Welcome back Starlight. Thanks again for your comments.

      Regarding your quesiton: Your use of the word holistic is my MO for all we do in my class. I don’t really have a favorite resource,  per se.  Thre are so many to choose from. I’ve written about many of them in other articles on my site.

      What I think is most important, and what I consider my favorite resources are: Whatever we do needs to be at least relatable, if not directly connected to their real lives, not just rote memorizations and the other is to encourage them to make mistakes. I love to see them help each other as they learn from their own and others’ mistakes.

      What I love about teaching adults is the fact that they have life experience. It’s easier to connect things to their lives. All I’m trying to do is to help them relate to things in English.

      It’s awesome to watch people from different parts of the world relate to one another, with English and the fact that they are in the same class, often being all they have in common.

  37. Interesting write-up about ESL through free printable English Lessons.  I’ve been spending lots of time learning other languages over the past 20 years, but the principles are the same when it comes to trying to communicate with other people in another language.

    The key principle though is that you have to live the language as often as you can as long as you can.

    In my experiences, I’ve spent months (even years) carving out time during my commute on the metro reading language learning books while supplementing them with audio (ripped CDs and YouTube videos these days) for a particular language.

    However, you can read and listen to this literature until you’re blue in the face, but it only gets you up to a level of proficiency that only gets you in the game of at least trying to use it.  That said, I know that had I lived in these countries for at least a year (where I’m forced to live that language every day), then I’d get to fluency way faster than trying to do it through “book learning”.  In fact, even though I’ve spent years learning languages like Spanish, French, Chinese, Norwegian, and Italian (among others), I can’t say I’m fluent in any of them because I haven’t lived those languages long enough.

    So while these printable lessons are good to get started, they’re just that.  Starting points.  You still have to invest yourself in learning the language (they’re actually huge undertakings when you think about it), and you have to allow yourself to keep trying to use it and not be afraid to make mistakes (that’s how you learn).

    Like a lot of things in life, language learning is a “use it or lose it” proposition.  Like you say, repetition is key, but you also have to use it in real life situations where you have to react and respond in that language.  And keep doing it.

    • Hi Johnny, thanks for your comments. I can’t argue with anything you’ve said. In fact, I totally agree. However, my students are all beginners, although I’ve taught all levels of ESL. Some of my students, when they first arrive in my class, speak no English whatsoever, ZERO. We literally begin with A, B, C, 1, 2, 3. So, as you said, it’s a starting point. 

      I tell my students all the time, and have written several other articles, that are about immersion and why it’s so important to practice in real life, not just in the classroom. 

      As someone who is in the developmental stages of creating online instruction, the purpose of my site is to provide as much free material as possible. Everyone is different in how they learn. I may not be able to please everyone but I do my best to appeal to as many people as possible.

      Some people actually believe they will learn the language themselves by studying a book or worksheets. More power to them if they can.

      Most people will eventually realize they need help. I’m here to help those who want to learn.

      I’m impressed that you have studied as many languages as you have. You’re way ahead of most people, even though you’ve only begun. Having begun at least gives you a clue and some sort of a foundation to build on.

    • Hi Chris, thanks for your comments. As for your question:I can’t create motivation, well maybe I could but that’s not what I do. 

      I try to identify the fuse(s) that motivate people and I light the fuse(s) as often as possible. 

      That mainly includes me being consistent and dependable. It also includes me modeling what I teach, so as to show, not just tell. 

      I also try to challenge students to do their best and to practice all the time. I’m not one who’s very interested in formal testing, although some of it is required. 

      However, I like to keep students on their toes. I let them know I’m alwasys watching and listening. I let them know I’m always testing them to see if they’re paying attention. 

      It seems to work well most of the time. I can’t please everyone.

The difference between the way we as Americans speak English and what is proper is astonishing. Don’t get me wrong. I’m as guilty as the next person. Teaching ESL has made me more aware of how so many of us brutalize the language.

    • Hi Eric, thanks for your comments. The best resources I know are the ones that get students to practice speaking what they learn with others. If the resource itself doesn’t provide or suggest that, I make up things to have students practice that pertains to the subject matter. The main parts of an English class are: Reading, writing, speaking, and listening, with a lot of grammar and pronunciation mixed in. Any resource that can or does include all of those parts is golden. Also, it’s difficult to learn a language without interacting with others. Language is meant to be used with others. Trying to learn a language without interaction is a waste of time in my opinion. You used the word engaging. That’s what it’s about.

    When I was younger, I attempted to learn Japanese on my own and found it both rewarding and challenging. When I was older, I took a class with an instructor and found the learning much quicker, and I had help when I needed it.

    Would you suggest finding an instructor is best when pursuing ESL or would using free printables in combination with an instructor be best?

    Warm regards,

    Rod

    Reply
    • Hi Rod, thanks for your comments. To address your question: Everyone is different, but my opinion is, most people need help learning a new language. The older a person is, the more help they probably need. Furthermore, language is for interacting with others. Printables are good support but I personally don’t see how anyone can truly learn a language without help from someone who understands the language. Yes, I’m biased. I’m an ESL teacher. However, I like to make as much information and as many resources available to whomever wants it. If and when they become ready for help, I hope to be whom they call.

  49. Very professional review KBob. This well-researched list of decent printables will truly help and inspire new teachers. However, as an EAP teacher reacting to my students, I always felt tailor-made materials were the most effective. If you have used many of these printables, did you find them easy to use and adapt to your teaching style?

    It’s marvellous that modern teachers have such a healthy library of materials at their fingertips.

    Keep up the good work. I’m looking forward to you creating your unique online courses one day; then, your art will really come into play!

    Blessings and Success.

    • Hi Linden Thorp, thanks for your comments. I use printables as a supplement. There are so many different ones, I’m usually able to find what I need/want. If not, I can and do create them myself. 

      The article is meant to avail anyone and everyone who can benefit from the extra help, who may not be able to or simply doesn’t want to pay.

      I’m not advocating for them in a way that suggests they are the best way to learn a language. They are an option but as I said, I use them to supplement.

      Language is meant to be shared with others.  That’s why we have language in the first place. Having said that, I think everyone needs to work with someone else at least some of the time.

      Ultimately, that’s what I’m here for. If and when someone decides they need help, I hope they will choose me.

      Although I’m not currently doing any classes online, I have in the past, and I work full time in the classroom teaching ESL to adults.

    What a great service you offer to people learning English. I like that you offer a link to Google Translate right away. It makes it possible for people to understand what you are offering when they don’t already speak English. For anyone trying to learn English as a second language knowing that there are free resources, can access to print the material so they can take it with them to study. Not everyone can learn just by pulling up a lesson on their phone.

    So many non-English speakers have limited funds so knowing that there are free resources they can access is great. I love the “Making the Most of” section of the post. A great help for learning how to apply themselves to the process of learning.

    Your post and website are invaluable.

  62. Hello KBob,

    Very well written and informative article. I am constantly amazed at the variety of subjects presented by Wealthy Affiliate members. Is there a way I could help, say help Spanish speaking people learn English in exchange for teaching me Spanish? I could use all of your free resources to get them started and then send them to you for polishing. 🙂 Just kidding, I don’t really think that is possible as my knowledge of other languages is nearly 0. 

    Thanks for sharing your vast knowledge of the English language free resources to our foreign friends. I’m sure your generosity is well appreciated by many.

  67. Hi KBob, This is a very useful collation of English language resources. I’m an EFL teacher in Japan and recently started using Breaking News English articles in one of my adult classes. It’s my favourite of the resources you mentioned. Each topic also includes audio recordings of the main article at various speeds and in British as well as American English. Also, because all the exercises are closely related to the main article, the vocabulary from the article gets recycled multiple times, which I think is very helpful.

      As for keeping people motivated, it’s like working out. You have to love what you’re doing and know what you’re doing it. I always tell my students they need to be practicing all the time. I try to make as much material available for them so that they always have plenty to do.

  76. It looks like you’ve already compiled a comprehensive and detailed guide on the best free printable English lessons for beginners in ESL (English as a Second Language). Your article provides valuable insights and practical advice for learners seeking to improve their English language skills. Here are a few additional  suggestions that could further enhance your guide:

    While printable resources are fantastic, encourage learners to complement these with multimedia tools such as videos, podcasts, and interactive apps. This variety can aid in developing listening and comprehension skills and keep the learning process engaging.

    Suggest that learners form study groups or find language exchange partners. Practicing with peers can boost confidence, provide real-time feedback, and make learning more interactive and fun.

    Recommend that learners follow English learning pages or groups on social media platforms. These often post daily tips, vocab, and quizzes, which can be a great supplement to structured learning.

    Encourage learners to keep a journal where they can jot down new words, phrases, and reflections on their learning process. This can be a powerful tool for tracking progress and staying motivated.

    Understanding the cultural context of a language can significantly enhance learning. Recommend resources that provide insights into English-speaking cultures, idiomatic expressions, and real-life usage.

    Including or linking to printable progress trackers or checklists can help learners stay organized and motivated as they work through different lessons and resources.

    For those with different learning needs or disabilities, it could be helpful to mention which of these resources are accessible (e.g., audio descriptions, large print, etc.).

    Your guide is already thorough and well-structured, and these additional suggestions can offer a more rounded approach to language learning, catering to various learning styles and preferences.

    • Hi Demavend, thanks for your comments and suggestions. Actually, I use printables as supplements. They are meant to enhance and deepen a student’s learning and understandng, from my standpoint.  However, there are people who either can’t afford or believe they can learn the language on their onw. More power to them if they can. In any case, why ever or however people choose to use the printables I’ve suggested or any of the many others I have to choose from, I try to have more than enough to choose from.

      As for your suggestions, I’ve actually written a couple of subsequent articles since this one that include many, if not all your suggestions.  GMTA! 🙂

Do you have any suggestions on how to assess your own level? Thanks again for sharing this great information!

    Reply
    • Hi Martins, thanks for your comments and your interesting question. 

      The answer to your question is, I don’t have an exact answer but it is something I have some experience with and use a lot. I’m often tasked with assessing a student on the spot when I first meet him or her. 

      The bottom line for me is if they can understand and respond to what I’m saying in English, in addition to if they can read and understand what is written in English, they are at least an intermediate student. 

      If they need a translator to understand what is written and what is said in English, they are a beginner student. 

      An advanced student is probably completely, if not nearly completely fluent, and would probably only need the worksheets to brush up on a particular issue or problem.

      I hope that helps.

  83. What a wonderful array of free resources!  Not to mention all the excellent advice for learning English as a second language.  They’re all good, but I like the advice to combine resources the best.  I find that when I’m learning anything, having as many different perspectives on the same subject as I can get, makes a huge difference in assimilating it all.  The individual metaphors different people come up with to explain things seems to triangulate the core principles for me like nothing else.

    I’ve heard that English is one of the most difficult languages for people to learn.  And I don’t doubt it for a second.  The inconsistent pronunciations, by itself, is enough to drive one over the edge!  Ha ha!  And the etymology of words is a whole history lesson unto itself.  I’ve always thought that nearly any question could be answered simply by knowing the more archaic definitions of words.  But I suppose that’s reserved for more advanced lessons.

    Anyway.

    Keep up the good work.  It’s clear you’re an excellent teacher and any ESL student would be lucky to have you.

    • Hi Anna, thanks for your comments. I’m glad you like array of free resources. Yes, English is a complicated language, to say the very least. I tell my students all the time that it’s a crazy language. You’re right about the etymology of the words. English is derived from many languages. Knowing the archaic definitions can help but it often doesn’t go far enough. I was forced by my father to take Latin in high school. To my chagrin as a rebellious teen, he was right. It’s helped me with my limited knowledge of Spanish and a little in my pursuit of mastering the English language, but as I said, it often doesn’t go far enough.

The best teaching method I know of, at least for teaching what I teach, beginning level adult ESL is whole class interaction where the students have a script or scenario they are to act out or communicate about. Don’t get me wrong, we use books, online materials, printables and many other resources, but the students seem to respond best when they can interact with one another. I try to make time for that as often as possible.

However, I use printables in my classes to enhance and/or deepen understanding of what we are covering. I’m assuming you are categorizing the printables as passiave. If so, I encourage students to use as many resources as necessary for them to learn and understand. There are an infinite amount of resources available. Having said that, some people feel they can learn on their own. If that’s the case, then the printables are probably one of, if not their only resource. I wish those people well.

      As for how to navigate the resources to ensure progress toward fluency, I believe it all comes down to two words: immersion and practice. I will help anyone who’s willing to put in the time and effort it takes to learn English. That is the reason for my website that is chock full of resouorces.

    • Hi Matthew, thanks for your comments. I believe education should be affordable, if not free for anyone who is willing to put in the time it takes to learn. There are more resources available than a lot of people realize. I hope you and others will make use of this website as a resource for either learning English or a blueprint for learning any language.

  95. Just wanted to share a quick thought on the Tips for Effective Use of Printable English Lessons. As someone who learned English as a second language, I realized that not setting clear goals slowed down my progress.

    For a while, I didn’t really focus on what I wanted to achieve with my English skills. It wasn’t until I started setting specific goals, like improving my vocab or getting better at conversations, that things clicked. This tip about setting goals made my printable lessons way more useful.

    So, if you’re learning English, don’t skip this step. Setting goals really helps speed up your learning journey.

  96. Hello,
    I like your website. It is informative and friendly particularly to people who do not use English as their primary language. I have a friend who is a head teacher in a country where their citizens barely speak English language. She stated that it was a challenge initially, but developing a teaching method that is friendly and easy to understand like yours really helps the learners. Printing lessons can give additional method of learning to individuals who are learning fast thru reading and visualization. Reading the lessons multiple times can also add to their learning capabilities.Thank you for sharing!

    • Hi Jordia, thanks for your comments. Yes, teaching English to non-English speakers can be a challenge, although it happens to be a challenge I embrace. If someone wants to learn and is willing to do what it takes, I will teach them. The printables are but one method. I generally use printable to enhance and deepen understanding. However, there are people who believe they can teach themselves. I hope the printables will be helpful to those people too. To each his or her own. Whatever works.

I particularly appreciate your emphasis on setting clear goals, creating a consistent schedule, and combining resources to create a well-rounded learning experience. These strategies are essential for maximizing the effectiveness of printable English lessons.

    Additionally, your inclusion of interactive learning methods, such as language exchange and seeking feedback, underscores the importance of engaging with the language in real-world contexts.

    Lastly, your offer to provide personalized assistance as a certified English teacher is incredibly generous and underscores your commitment to supporting learners on their language learning journey. Nicely done.

    • Hi ScottG, thanks for your comments. I appreciate your kudos. English is my only language as well, although I do speak a little bit of Spanish. As such, since most of the educated world is at least bi-lingual, if not multi-lingual, I’ve made it my business to be a master in my one and only. Furthermore, I’m amazed how many native English spreakers don’t really understand the language.

  98. In my opinion, the emphasis on setting clear learning goals and creating a structured schedule is particularly crucial. Language learning, especially for ESL beginners, can be overwhelming due to the vast array of topics and skills to master. The guidance to set clear objectives and maintain a consistent learning routine can help demystify the process and provide a sense of direction. Moreover, the suggestion to combine resources from different platforms is an excellent strategy to ensure a comprehensive learning experience that covers all linguistic competencies—speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

    The article also rightly points out the significance of interactive learning.  The integration of traditional printable resources with interactive tools and real-life practice opportunities can significantly enhance the learning experience. This blended approach not only aids in retaining new vocabulary and grammar structures but also in applying them in practical, conversational contexts.

    • Hi Destiny, thanks for your comments. Yes, it can be extremely challenging for those just starting out, especially the older folks, but if I can convince them to not expect too much too soon and to celebrate the little victories, they eventually learn. I tell all my students to focus on learning one new thing every day. If they can learn more, that’s great. Furthermore, whatever they learn, they need to practice it in real life. Those who understand that, do well. Others, well…..

As someone who has personally navigated the rewarding journey of learning English as a second language, I deeply appreciate the value of accessible resources like free printable English lessons. This article serves as a beacon of hope for beginners in ESL, offering a treasure trove of practical and engaging materials to kickstart their language learning adventure.

  102. Kbob, 

       Thank you so much for the post. This just confirms that one can harness free resources to bring about true learning! As a teacher (accounting) in the U.S., I (and other teachers) have our students utilize a website to prep them and give them the ability to take different courses Through the numerous courses that are offered on this site, students potentially have the opportunity test out their first year of college (introductory courses).

      I agree 100% with the 7 tips you point out starting with Setting Goals. Changing up learning and interactive learning is a must. A lot of the time in my class I let my students collaborate together.  Reviewing is a must. I need to do that on my learning adventures. Staying motivated is hard to do sometimes especially when setbacks occur, but I love the point you make

    Reply
    • Hi Jeff, thanks for your comments. I’m glad you see the value of the printables. It’s always good to meet other teachers. I not only allow students to collaborate, I encourage it. They often learn as much, if not more from each other than from me. Although, I love teaching, I’m as much, if not more a facilitator.

  104. I agree with you about using the printables as a supplement to interactive activities because it would help reinforce what is being taught. 

    Using just the printables and their convenience may give an ESL student a false sense that this is all they need without realizing they actually need more reinforcement with other formats. 

    When it comes to learning, a lot of us do better with multiple formats. For instance, my strongest learning method is in written form, but I find when I add audio or video formats that I learn and retain what I learned faster.

    • Hi Clair, thanks for your comments and your overarching quesiton. As a teacher, I use printables as support for what I’m teaching and what we are covering. The printables cover a wide variety of subjects. In my opinion, they are best used to deepen understanding and for practice. However, there are people who either cannot afford the time and/or money it takes to learn a new language and believe they can teach themselves. If they can do that through the use of printables, they are there for the taking. They are an effective resource and have their place, but I wouldn’t recommend that anyone rely solely on them to learn a language.

    • Hi Kyle, thanks for your comments. As for your questions: I’m sorry but I don’t have any recommendations of brands that will assist provide extra help for someone like yourself with hearning loss. As for brands, my statements about combining resources is a general statement. I use printables in my classes to supplement many other resources. My point is, I don’t suggest anyone rely solely on printable materials as their source for learning a language. The free printables are one source of learning but there are countless others. I have my students do a lot of conversation exercises, some that include role playing. We use an internet based program that takes us in many different directions and includes games and much more. The more resources used, the better it is in the long run, not only for you, but anyone who is learning a language. The bottom line is, it’s about real-life. The best resource I can think of for anyone is to talk to other people wherever you are. Language is about communication.

  108. Undoubtedly, learning a new language, and often a new culture can be quite challenging. I am familiar with numerous ones who have done just that! Trial and error, and practice, practice, practice, go a long way. It also helps to have a good memory. One person I know said finding easy reading material was invaluable. Having a native speaker, as well, is a big help. Having free printables is a great way to learn how to read a language, especially for the visual learner. Right now I am trying to learn a new language and am using the app Duolingo. There are other apps as well. Approaching language learning from many angles helps rivet it in your mind. Printables are great and you have provided a large source from which they are available. Thanks!

    • Hi AldrnAwak, thanks for your comments. I’m glad you like the article and its resources. An English class, and probably other language classes as well, consists of four main elements: Reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Embedded within those four elements are vocabulary and pronunciation. I try to do all of them in all of my classes, which at the adult school where I teach, is a three-hour class. I use printables to supplement, deepen, and enhance what we do in class. The bottom line is, students MUST practice what they learn or they won’t retain well, if at all. To learn a language, people need to immerse themselves in it as much as they can. It’s like learning to swim. I can teach you all the terms and all you want to know about swimming, but until you actually get in the water, you’ll never really know how to swim.

      I hope that helps.

      Regarding your question: From my perspective, printables are a supplemental resource I like my students to use to deepen understanding and/or fill in gaps of missing understanding. Although, I sometimes teach from printables, I usually use a variety of resources, which includes my own spontenaity. I believe that the art to teaching anything is the ability to connect the subject matter to a student’s real life.

      Students learn as much, if not more from each other as they do from me. I have students act out scenarios, ask and answer questions from a list and a variety of other situations. Interacting with one another is about as real-life as it gets. They can laugh with one another and fumble through the exercises. Then, they can use the printables as a follow-up for homework etc.

Hopefully, some or all of them are fluent enough in English to correct them if they’re wrong. I tell all my students, the key to whatever I teach you and what you learn is to practice, practice, practice until it becomes a part of you. Otherwise, the whole thing is a waste of time.

    So here is my question:

    In the age of online courses and language learning apps, what advantages do free printable English lessons offer to beginners, and how do they complement modern learning methods? Additionally, how can learners maximize the effectiveness of these resources in their language acquisition journey?

    • Hi Matthias, thanks for your comments. To address your questions: The main advantages to the printables are that they are freely accessable at no cost to everyone. They may or may not be as good or better than some of the others out there and they may not be for everyone.

      I use printables to supplement, enhance, and/or deepen what we do in class. I do not often use them for teaching. However, there are people, for whatever reason, who either can’t afford the time or money to attend classes and want to teach themselves. The resources are there for the taking.

      In order to maximize anything people learn in just about anything, partiularly when learning a language is to practice, practice, practice what they learn as often as possible. That is why immersion is the best method. Furthermore, it’s important for people to apply what they learn to their real lives. That’s what it’s all about.

And your reminder to stay motivated and celebrate achievements along the way is so important—learning a new language is a definitely a marathon haha. I also love how you’ve highlighted your own expertise as a certified English teacher. It’s evident that your passion for teaching shines through, and learners would be lucky to have you as their guide.

  124. I have had the privilege of teaching ESL with a group on missions trips in Mexico and Costa Rica. Being part of the team was very inspirational. Thank you for providing these free resources. I didn’t know that there were so many resources available. I know we could have used some of these on our teaching trips! I also work for a large publishing company that has some very popular ESL and ELT books. I know there are many in the world that want to learn English.

    • Hi Mikael, thanks for your comments. The best tip I can offer is to immediately and often as possible, practice, practice, practice what they learn. The rubber meets the road when the learning is applied in real life.

  126. I had no idea that there were so many free printable English language lessons available, and they also have videos, to help with the correct annunciation. This really helps you move ahead with your language skills.
    It’s great that you advise people set goals, as we all have these great ideas about learning new skills, and get de-railed, when life gets busy.  Learning the English language opens so many doors. Thanks for the great post.

    • Hi Amanda, thanks for your comments. Yes, I advise people to make goals, which involves practice-lots of practice. That’s how people learn. True learning comes from applying what is learned as soon and as often as possible, in one’s real life.

  127. found your article on free printable English lessons for ESL beginners extremely insightful. It made me wonder about the integration of traditional tools, like sand timers, into language learning environments. Sand timers could serve as effective tools for timing activities or managing class segments. Check it out sandtimerhourglass dot com. Do you believe incorporating such tactile tools alongside printable materials could enhance the learning experience by adding a physical dimension to time management and task completion? How might they impact student engagement and the pacing of lessons? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.

    • Hi Christopher, thanks for your comments and you thought-provoking questions.First of all, in general, I believe printables are good supplemental learning tools, although, there are people use them as their primary source of learning. Whatever works for the individual is what’s best. I see nothing wrong with using a sand timer or anything else to help someone with pacing. The important part is that people practice what they learn as soon and often as possible.Knowledge, at least as it applies to learning a language, is only as valuable as the application of what is learned.

  128. For more than 35 years my wife and I have welcomed students from all over the world to share our house and hospitality when they study at local English Language Schools. Most stay with us for two or three weeks, but some have been known to stay for a few months. Their level of speaking and reading English varies from very basic to almost fluent. The Schools Of English are very good, but some students struggle and ask for our help. I never knew that free printable English lessons existed before reading your article, and I know this is something that we will investigate and use in the future. Thanks!

    • Hi Pickwick Publishing, thanks for your comments. Cool that you host people in your home. I hope the printables help. However, the key is practicing what they learn in real-life situations, whatever that may be.

  129. Hi KBob,

          Thanks for the info, I never thought about using printable English lessons but it is such a good idea. I have a friend that has moved here and her whole family are trying to learn English. The kids are having lessons and the parents are trying to learn at home, these printable lessons would actually be a great way for the whole family to learn together as they can take turns reading them out loud and learn as a group. Are there any other formats or resources that you think would be good for a family to use as a unit to improve their English and encourage interaction as a family?

    Thanks again

    • Hi Pete, thanks for your comments. I actually recommend printables as a supplemental resource for my students. However, if you family friends work together, that would be good. The key to learning just about anything, especially a language is to put what is learned into practice as soon and often as possible. I would recommend that they role play, depending on wheich ones they are using. I wrote another article: https://englishteacherkbob.com…that would complement the printables. You might want to check that out. I hope it helps.

  130. Hi KBob,

    Super interesting your article. I find it useful when you say we can use the printable format to complement other formats, like language apps. Especially for grammar rules, I think most of the apps don’t really focus on formal grammar rules, but on a conversational format.

    I also find it so much easier to have a piece of paper so I can take notes and highlight what I find is more important. Can’t do this on the app…

    What a great collection.

    I like your mention that traditional worksheets and lesson plans are effective to innovative approaches like using current news articles that cater to diverse learning styles and preferences.

    Whether it’s grammar drills, vocabulary expansion, or honing speaking skills, beginners have access to a wealth of materials and activities to support their language journey, thanks to these invaluable resources contributed.

    • Hi Troy, welcome back. Thanks again for your comments. The operative word in your response is “support”. Printables are for support of what students learn, in order to deepen or enhance learning. If people can actually learn from them without additional instruction, more power to them.

  134. This is a good site with a lot of resources for people who want to learn English. The demand for people who want to learn English is also growing, I guess in part due to political dysfunction in some countries.

    I was in a 2nd hand bookshop yesterday looking to see if they had any resources I could use, only to be told that whatever they get in goes back out the door as quickly as it arrived.

    I have bookmarked a few of the links on your site, there are a few there I did not know of, and I am sure they will be useful for both me and the students.

  141. why just stick with just English why not offer multiple languages and do you have a subscription to where they can go to a learning class put on by you weather it be a video or live and what about something like babble so they can follow along with the pronounciation and or maybe they pic the word and it will use the word in a sentence so they know how to properly pronounce and use it in the proper form i am sure everyone has encountered the time trying to understand a foriener trying to ask some direction bad pronouniation and using words in wrong context i think if i was learning it would be handy for me to understand and learn better

  142. This article is chocked full of valuable FREE resources for people interested in learning English as a second language, considering many students are coming from poorer areas and they may not have the resources to use towards formal instruction.  Your site, plus the 6 you mention is more than enough to get students well on their way towards conversing in English fluently.

    I appreciate the tips you offered to make the most out of the free printable English lessons.  I’m sure it can be overwhelming for anyone to put together their own lesson plan, but with this guidance they can do so confidently.  Setting small milestones and consistently reviewing your progress is key to accomplishing the goals you set out.

    Thank you for putting together these valuable resources and insights, KBob.

I was in the same boat many years ago, before digital resources were widely available. With so many free resources available online now, it’s much easier to start, but maybe not everyone is aware of them or how to find them.
