The L Pack

Below is a link to an excellent language pack for migrants in Europe. It consists of 30 topic based lessons, each one focuses on a particular topic of Irish interest.  There are videos, tape scripts, grammar exercises, comprehension and cultural information. Videos can be played with or without subtitles, and with one of the other participant muted for students to practice responses.  While topic based, each lesson concentrates on a particular aspect of English grammar e.g. present continuous, modals, adjectives etc.  It was developed by the European Commission and is aimed at A2 learners.  Topics include such areas as a phone call to SOLAS, an interview with SOLAS, phoning a school, a parent teacher meeting, upgrading trade certs and recognition of degrees among others.

Useful for Workplace 


The following video has some very good vocabulary on safety in the workplace.  Might be useful for Workplace English.

(Great for prepositions and as a material for writing about workplace accidents)

Work safely in your office

(Based on graphics rather than words, this is great to elicit the vocabulary of the office and for teaching phrases like should/shouldn’t)
