General English teaching resources

General English teaching resources

We have resources to help you teach English, whatever your context. Use these resources in your classroom, or pass them on to your students for them to use at home.

If you are preparing students for Cambridge English Qualifications, we have dedicated resources that you can use.

Learning English

Learning English has a whole range of fun, free activities to try with your students. You can use the activities as part of a lesson in the classroom, or give them to students to practise with at home. Each activity takes a few minutes to complete – just choose the level and the skill that you want to practise.
