ESL Curricula

ReachGlobal offers user-friendly, activity-based curricula for English ministries with youth and adults, as well as one specifically for children. All the materials are designed to be user-friendly for non-teachers. They are activity based, with a focus on conversational English. See links to sample lessons below.

Youth and Adult ESL Curricula

The multi-level book for each curriculum includes learning activities for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Each series also has an entry-level book for students with no English background.

The series includes:

  • Adventures in English (Newly revised 2021)
  • Discoveries in English (2008)
  • Exploring English (2010)

(Note: The 12 lessons in Discoveries in English and Exploring English multi-level books can also be used as units.)

These series can be used with or without the accompanying reading lessons, taken from the Bible. These reading lessons come in separate books.

Children’s Curriculum

This activity-based curriculum is designed for students from 6-10 years old, though many activities are also appropriate for younger or older children. The guide includes instructions for teachers with limited English teaching experience and leads them step by step in presenting themed ESL lessons on topics such as family, colors, numbers, senses, etc. Though the book contains seven lessons, the flexibility and variety of ideas would permit them to be stretched out over a longer period of time.
