Resources for Tutors

This page contains resources for tutors. Many organisations and individuals have created very useful resources over the years, and we are delighted to host them on this site for easy access by tutors. While some content may be somewhat outdated, the vast bulk are still relevant and remain useful for tutors

Below we have a number of resources from Integrate Ireland Language and Training (IILT) and the National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) for use with migrant ESOL learners. The IILT resources were created specifically for refugees living in Ireland, based on the CEFR and the Milestone ELP.

Books

IILT’s Anseo – English for Living in Ireland and Féach – Looking at Language and Literacy – click on cover image below to download PDF copies (high quality PDF of complete books).

Accompanying listening material for Anseo can be downloaded here

Worksheets, Lesson Plans, Modules

IILT Worksheets and Lesson Plans

The resources below are at levels marked 1 to 5, Pathways and Prevocational. IILT catered for learners from beginners to groups preparing to enter mainstream education, training or work. Levels 1 to 3 broadly correspond to CEFR A1, A2, while 4 and 5 correspond to B1/B2. Pathways and Prevocational correspond to B2 (with Prevocational being slightly higher). Methods and curricula in IILT were strongly geared towards self assessment by learners using the Milestone ELP, designed to meet the needs of migrants living in the host country.

It should be borne in mind that the point of the CEFR was to reflect the spiky profiles found in most language learners, where proficiency in the 5 skills (reading and listening, speaking, writing, and communicative competence) can vary widely in an individual learner, rather than the creation of ‘average’ levels.

Where possible we have uploaded worksheets in .doc form (editable) if available, otherwise we have uploaded pdfs.

The page design will be ‘beautified’ as soon as possible, but for now, we hope the resources are helpful. The table of resources can be sorted by column. We have removed a large number of resources which were out of date, and would greatly appreciate if you could contact us if you notice any others.

Can you Give us a Minute?

Our Give Us a Minute campaign invites everyone to donate a minute or so of themselves to build this resource.

We need people from all walks of life to give us one to two minutes of video or audio –  you can tell us about yourself, your town, a memory, a local legend, your experience as a newcomer to Ireland, your favourite recipe, how to make a proper cup of tea… anything and everything.  Contact us if you have an idea for a lesson, would like to volunteer, or just to say hello!

You can record a video on your phone, make a TikTok video, send us audio with some accompanying images, or even send us a piece of text – maybe a story or poem. The video can be you, your surroundings, or anything you like. If you need advice on how to do this easily, contact us, we’ll be delighted to help.

If you’re a film-maker, spoken word artist, writer, poet, comedian… we’d love to talk to you about using a minute of your work to base a lesson on. Contact us !

If you work for an organisation that uses short videos to inform the public, we’d be delighted to adapt your media to a lesson. Many organisations create translations for a number of languages, which is great, we can complement this by creating a way for migrants to learn the relevant language to access your services more easily. Contact us !
