for teachers & students -  Free EFL - ESOL English language and English grammar resources is a portal for teachers and learners of English as a foreign language (EFL) and English as a second language (ESL) or English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).
    In the UK, a CFBT report published by the British Council in 2007 suggested that the former distinction between EFL (English for school or adult students learning a foreign language) and ESL or ESOL (English aimed at immigrant populations needing to become proficient in the national language of their new country of abode) was no longer very helpful. Linguapress has held this view for many years. While aimed primarily at EFL learners worldwide, resources on, with their language and cultural content, are in many cases equally appropriate for learners acquiring English as a second language whether in Britain or the USA.
   The main aim of this website is to offer a range of free online resources for teachers and students; These resources include:
  • (a) Graded English reading resources : Advanced and intermediate English. A selection of articles and short stories in graded and simplified English, accompanied by vocabulary notes and ideas for the classroom;
  • (b) Word games in English. Thematic crosswords in graded English, and other puzzles;
  • (c) An online English grammar: clear explanations of the main points of the English language, grammar, syntax and other aspects of language; and finally;
  • (d) Other pages with information for teachers and students of English as a foreign language, including studying English in England, choosing an English language school, the story of English, and more.

This archive of articles, together with the classroom teaching material to accompany it, is the bedrock of the new  Linguapress welcomes new content and classroom resources from writers and teachers.
