Larry Ferlazzo’s English Website

There are many pages on my main website, and they have nearly 8,000 categorized links appropriate for English Language Learners.

The best place to start exploring is the Main English Page.

You can read an overview about each section of my website on the Teacher’s Page. This page also has many links specifically useful to teachers.

You can also go directly to each page of my website:

English For Beginners and Early Intermediate

English Themes for Beginners and Early Intermediate

English For Intermediate and Advanced

English Themes for Intermediate and Advanced

Bilingual Exercises For English Language Learners

Examples of Student Work

Science For English Language Learners

I also have a page that has links to a number of articles I’ve written that teachers might find useful:

Published Articles

Another part of my website is oriented more towards native English speakers or advanced English Language Learners. However, many of these sections also have links accessible to Intermediate English Language Learners. This site did not necessarily grow in a logical progression.

These sections are:



Social Studies

ARW (Academic Reading and Writing) This is the name we give to the ninth-grade English class we offer at my school.

  6. Hi Larry!

    I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog and it always has such interesting topics and tips for teachers.

    I have a quick question. I was wondering if you or any of your subscribers could answer for me.

    1. I am using wikis in my classroom and I was wondering if anyone is using their wikis as reader response journals in the classroom and how they have set up their wikis?

  7. Lee,

    This is where I usually suggest people go to learn more about wiki use in classrooms:

    I hope its helpful.

  17. Dear Larry,
    Please visit, a brand new and entirely free-to-use website dedicated to making English irregular verbs easy to teach and learn. Studying irregular verbs with a good story is much more interesting than relying only on tedious lists or uninspiring examples. is devoted to finding the most interesting examples of how they are used in contemporary English, picking out the ones used in global news stories as reported by well-known international newspapers, with a selection of thought-provoking quotations, and direct links to the articles. The site also includes dramatic historic events in which irregular verbs featured prominently, quotations with rare or unusual verbs as used in today’s English, focused presentations of certain verbs, tips for teachers, tips for students, free downloads, and many opportunities for participation.
    We hope you like it and can include it in your lists.
    Best wishes!

  18. Great resource. Thanks.

    I have two questions. Might you be interested in a guest post from a 12 year ESL veteran teacher in Korea who loves to teach writing?

    Two. Is it possible to add my website to your list of links?

    Again, many thanks for the time you’ve put into this great site.

  26. Hello Mr. Ferlazzo!

    My colleague introduced your blog to me, im getting a lot of help and tips from it! Thank you.

    I am currently at a position where I have to organize and make English newspaper for children in Korea. I also make workbook for them to study the article in detail.

    But since I am doing this by myself, I would like to get some feedbacks from professional ESL teachers point of view.

    If I send you my first issue of the newspaper and the workbook, would it be possible for you to give me some feedback? what to improve and what to keep and so on?
