Welcome to tesol tasks

tesol tasks (formerly known as Frankie's ESOL Worksheets) is a collection of resources for Middle School ESOL, IGCSE in ESL and International Baccalaureate (IB) English B classes. In every case I have written the materials for my own students in an international school in Singapore. When something works well, I add it to the site in the hope that somebody else will find it useful too.

Just click on the tabs above to access the worksheets.

I wish every page looked as good as this one, but I just don't have the time to do a complete overhaul of the site design. Maybe when I retire!

Terms of Use

Teachers are welcome to copy, or even adapt, my materials for classroom use, provided that they acknowledge the source. Similarly, students may use the materials for private study. Any other use is strictly forbidden.

Sorry, I don't have the key!

I receive frequent emails (often from students pretending to be teachers!) urgently requesting the "key" to a particular worksheet. Call me disorganised, but the truth is: I don't have any keys! 

Rather than stand with an Answer Sheet in my hand, I find that it's more interesting to approach each task with fresh eyes and just figure it out along with my students. I even reckon it's a positive form of modelling to treat reading tasks as "real world" challenges that need to be grappled with.
