34 Useful Websites for New English Teachers 2


Are you ready for your students?

Are you ready for your students?

Are you a new English teacher? I am. I’m an American who’s been teaching in Vietnam for about 4 months. I’ve found it difficult to find useful websites. Websites that have resources that will actually help me in the classroom. I put together this list to help new (and experienced) teachers.

I’ve also listed 4 activities you can do with your students. These work inside or outside of the classroom.

Plus I have a link to a handy Firefox extension. It makes it easy to download a YouTube video. You won’t have to worry about a slow loading video anymore. Just download it before class starts.

Do you know a useful website that isn’t on this list? Add it with a comment.

    WOW – you certainly did a lot of research. FANTASTIC. Thanks for sharing.
    just a question – does the youtube downloader SW make any changes to my computer which I might regret later? There is another way of downloading youtube files without downloading any SW – just remove ‘www’ and insert ‘ss’ in front of the link. But I noticed that it doesn’t work all the time, or maybe there was s’thing wrong with my laptop.

    cheers

      The YouTube downloader extension is fine. It came recommended from a friend of mine. You (or your computer) won’t regret installing it. ;)
