TeachingEnglish is the British Council’s website for teachers of English:

TeachingEnglish brings together everything busy teachers need for the classroom and the staffroom
— lesson plans and worksheets, teaching tips, web links, teaching articles and lots of information about professional development
— training, conferences and qualifications.

The site includes interactive and multimedia material such as teaching videos, blogs, podcasts, discussion forums and polls. It features regular guest contributors — teachers from around the world and ELT specialists from the UK.

The site is organised into four main areas:

Try – this collection of resources for the classroom. A vast storehouse of lesson plans, worksheets and other teaching materials from the British Council, the BBC and other major UK publishers.

Think – about the way you teach and the principles which underpin your teaching. Articles on methodology, teaching ideas and tips, an ELT glossary and much more.

Talk – about your teaching and the issues that concern you. Discuss areas of interest, get advice, keep you own blog and link up with groups of teachers around the globe.

Transform – your teaching career. Access training materials, a range of personal development tools, information on UK ELT courses and qualifications and get an in-depth look at specialist teaching areas such as learning technologies, CLIL and Young Learners.
