The British Council offers a wide range of online resources to help teachers in remote teaching.
They can find ideas for their continuing professional development and a wealth of activities to help learners develop their language skills and raise their confidence.
The Remote Teaching Tips
These series provide practical ideas and guidance for teachers supporting their learners using a variety of platforms and approaches, across different contexts.
How to motivate learners remotely? How to develop their language skills? How to teach via TV, YouTube, radio, Facebook, SMS and telephone calls? How to teach with limited technologies?
You can find answers to these and many other questions relating to online teaching at the Remote Teaching Tips website.
This is a guidance on how to keep learners safe in an online context. If teachers are now using online channels to work with their learners, it’s even more important than before to check you and your class and their parents/caregivers (for younger learners) are aware of online risks.
Teaching different age groups
You can find a wide range of practical resources to use in your classroom, whether you are teaching primary students, secondary students, or adults and business students. There are over 400 full lesson plans to choose from, covering different topics and themes, all organised according to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for languages
