Favourite websites from All Things ELT blog author Dan Morgan

I thought I’d write a quick post about our favourite websites. There is such an abundance of ELT websites out there on the web, I thought I’d consolodate a quick list of my 3 favourite websites.

Favourite Website Number 1 – EFL Sensei

I had the pleasure of briefly working with the owners of eflsensei.com, Shawn and Becki have been building up a huge catalogue of English teaching resources from their years of teaching. ¬†Eflsensei is one of our favourite websites. It’s easy to use and logically organised. It has tons of free resources, downloadable lesson plans, and they have just added a jobs advertising board.


Favourite Website Number 2 – Classdojo

Classdojo is a fantastic classroom management software package. It runs entirely online through their website. Classdojo can be used as a classroom register, you can assign pictures to students, it can also be used as a scoring system to encourage learners to engage and participate in class. Aimed at young learners, classdojo can also involve parents. By sending parents a special code, they can access all sorts of reports and score cards through the website at home. You can read more about using classdojo for classroom management with young learners on our blog.


Favourite Website Number 3 – Film English

Film English is a fantastic catalogue video based lessons written by Kieran Donaghy. It’s an award winning website and is a fantastic go-to place for lessons. It’s really searchable, by level and topic. It’s free, Kieran just keeps it going with donations. The lesson plans are really clear and considered and most importantly students enjoy them, and find them engaging.
