Hey all — I've worked before as an ESL teacher (many moons ago). At the time, the best resource was Dave's ESL Cafe. Just wondering if there are other resources out there that people find useful

Specifically, I am now teaching ESL in my hometown (after a long time away from the field) and am looking for ESL resources, handouts and exercises for students and teachers. Something that allows for quick prep with downloadable handouts — like this site.

Any suggestions?

You might check out ESL Printables, a resource exchange site. Essentially, you get credits for uploading your hand-outs, etc when others download them. Be forewarned, though, there are a lot of errors on the materials as they're not edited for accuracy. Fortunately, you download them as Word documents, so you can change them them to suit your needs.

Ah that's perfect; thank you very much.

The fact that they are in 'Word' makes it that much easier!

www.eslgold.com has some decent stuff.
For my classes I use a lot of stuff from http://owl.english.purdue.edu They have a lot of lessons and some worksheets/quizzes that can be very helpful.
