English as a Second Language (ESL) Activity Kits

Language
Step 1: Choose language Step 2: Choose from available formats and options Available formats and options

Our ESL activity kits have been developed to enhance what newcomers know about their legal rights and responsibilities, as well as to provide information about where and how to access legal help in their communities. They are designed for use in Adult ESL and LINC classes and were developed using the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB). They are available at a range of CLB levels.

The materials cover topics based on CLEO publications in the tenant and workers’ rights series. These correspond to themes and topics in the Adult ESL and LINC curriculum guidelines. Instructors are encouraged to choose activity kits based on learner needs, goals and interests.

The activity kits are intended for learners at levels ranging from CLB 1 to 6+ and are available free of charge. They are designed to be downloaded and printed for classroom use.

ESL Activity Kits by Topic

Each activity kit includes:

  • introductory notes for teachers with context and CLB outcomes, a list of the activities in the kit, information about the CLEO publication on which the activities are based, and important preparatory information
  • activities for learners covering a range of skill areas
  • teaching notes with connections to the Adult ESL and LINC curriculum guidelines, suggestions for using the activities, and answer keys.

You may wish to check more than one level to find activities on the same topic that are appropriate for the learners in your class.
