Frequently asked questions
Who is this the Teacher portal for? (Is it for me?)
This is a site for English language teachers who want to engage in community-led online development. If you are a dedicated teacher who is looking for global connection, inspiriation and feedback from experienced teachers, the Teacher Portal is for you. And if you just want to have a chat about your lessons, that's fantastic too.

Can anyone join the courses?
Only members of the Teacher Portal can join a course. If you have a friend or colleague who you think would enjoy a course, please encourage them to join the Teacher Portal. You cannot share your login details with them.

Contents and materials
How can I get a course certificate?
Can I download materials and plans?
You can download some materials from courses and activities and lesson plans from the resources section of the site.
Can I download videos and share them?
No, you can't. Our teachers have very generously agreed to be filmed for the Teacher Portal only. Please don't share the videos. You would be in breach of our terms and conditions for membership.
How often will new content be posted?
Great question! We will post at least one new resource each week (sometimes more!) and there will be new video content each week as well.
