The Secret ESL Teacher

Hi! Welcome to The "Secret" ESL Teacher Blog. I've created this blog and website to help other teachers with lesson planning and materials, as well as to build a community.

A little bit about myself. I'm an ESL Teacher currently working in Beijing, but I originally come from the UK, where I have studied all the way from Nursery to completing my Law Degree. Straight after I graduated I came to China to pursue a career in teaching English as a foreign language. As well as my normal teaching duties, I am also about to start my iPGCE at a university back in the UK to further my qualifications and build my knowledge and quality as a teacher.

I found when doing my own research, there aren't too many spaces dedicated for ESL teachers to come and share their knowledge, experiences, and tricks. Therefore, I decided to create this page to try and fill this void.

So, what are the goals of this page? Firstly, I will be sharing my own experiences, challenges, and situations I've had to face while being an ESL teacher. I hope to invite other teachers such as yourself to write on this page too because if I've learned anything, no two experiences are the same.

Secondly, I am in the process of making and sharing my own lesson plans and flashcards to help other teachers who are struggling to find certain resources to make their lesson's the best they can. I have found in many situations I struggle to find sufficient materials for certain topics, so I end up making my own. These will of course be free of charge and available at any time for you to use.

Lastly, I invite you to participate and send me a message if you have any questions or queries about being an ESL teacher. This could be information on how to start out and get into this profession or a more niche topic about a particular aspect of language development, learning, and progression. Please feel free to contact me at

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you find something constructive and helpful during your time here. Teachers are always willing to help each other out.
