ESL Powerpoint Lessons

PowerPoints take about two minutes to download, but once they download, they are very fast. To download a lesson, just click on a link and wait--the presentation will appear on the screen by itself. PowerPoint lessons are great for ESL, TESOL, EFL, and K-12 students. They show well on interactive whiteboards and can be used as writing, speaking, and listening prompts. If you're a teacher showing a PowerPoint presentation to the whole class, it's best to download and preview the slideshow before showing it. You can also have students access the ppt presentations in the school's computer lab. I'll be adding more lessons over the next year or two. Enjoy!
