Many educators and schools are finding it difficult to provide material for ESL (English as a Second Language) students as they enter the United States. One of the main goals is to have L2 learners become proficient in English as quickly as possible and to be able to function in their new environment. ESL Voices provides  free weekly integrated-skills lesson plans (with answer keys) to teachers. The material is intended for intermediate to advanced  speakers, however, lessons can be modified to accommodate most levels, including non-ESL students. The lesson plans are based on current articles from a variety of major newspapers and magazines. Click here for the CURRENT LESSON or view previous Lesson Plans.
