Hi,

I'm currently working as a volunteer for an NGO in Mali's capital, Bamako. Although the official language of Mali is French, many people are keen to learn English. This is an especially important issue of the long term members of staff in the NGO that I am based with. I have been asked if I would like to give 2 weekly, hourly informal english lessons to a group size max 10 of adults who have rudimentary, basic english, and want to learn it for conversational purposes.

I am 18 years old, and though a native english speaker, have never taught english as a foreign language before! Could you direct me to any websites that would be able to provide me with lesson plans /ideas/activities with which to start teaching.

Many thanks for your time
Hannah

Hi Hannsky,

It's great that you're doing a project for VSO in Mali. Best of luck.

For grammar exercises, try my website, www.roadtogrammar.com - there are some downloads there, too.

Try www.esl-lab.com for listening activities.

Try www.eslhq.com for printable worksheets and stuff.

Email me at emiledodds<at>gmail.com if you want further stuff.
