ESL Support

About ESL Support

This site was made to support Assistant Language Teachers and other English teachers in Japan. 

Here, you will find a wealth of English flashcards, English song CDs, teaching tutorials, guides, activity manuals, and more. The materials can also be used for any ESL/EFL activity.

If you decide to use these materials and modify them, please send modifications back to this site, so materials can be continuously updated for all to use.


For those that cannot access this site and the materials hosted on Google Drive, please use this proxy at For translations, please use Google Translate.

Site Updates (Subscribe via RSS to ESL Support Updates)

  • March, 2018
    There are a few things going on.

    First, the site is going through a technical update. However, there's a lot of work to do to migrate from one site to another totally different platform.

    Second, the site is going through a review. With the advent of Creative Commons and open works, we would like to replace our current materials with free materials. However, this will also take a tremendous amount of time.

    Third, a note for Interac and other networks. Many of your networks provide Google Drive. However, they disallow the use of non-network file sharing. While logged into your network account, you cannot access Google Drive accounts that are not part of your network. You must either log out or use another computer to access these materials. We are also looking at moving away from using Google Drive as the backbone of this site.

    Fourth, many teachers are just learning about the new Let's Try and We Can textbooks for 3rd to 6th grades in elementary school. We'll update the materials here when possible to reflect the changed curriculum in these textbooks.
