Here are some key influences that help shape the creative and engaging resources you find on our site:

  1. Years of Hands-on Experience: Nothing can substitute the richness of personal teaching experiences. Every challenge overcome, every success celebrated, and every lesson learned in the classroom fuels our ideas and strategies. These experiences are then harnessed into practical, effective resources that other teachers can use.

  5. Feedback from Our Readers: We highly value the inputs from our blog community. Your comments, questions, and feedback help us identify specific needs and create resources that can effectively address those needs.
  • I have an idea for a resource! Can you make it?

Absolutely, yes! Your ideas and inputs are always welcome. If you have a concept for a new resource, please feel free to share it. We’d be delighted to consider it and potentially transform it into a practical tool that can benefit our community of ESL teachers. After all, our ultimate goal is to provide resources that meet the needs of our audience. Your input is invaluable in helping us achieve this!

  • Why isn’t my resource printing correctly?

Oh no, having trouble with printing? Let’s see if we can sort that out:

First, let’s make sure that the PDF reader you’re using is the latest and greatest. Adobe Reader is our go-to recommendation, so give that a whirl if you haven’t already.

Still having issues? Sometimes, all pages of your PDF need to be fully downloaded for it to print right. Make sure each page has loaded correctly, or maybe give re-downloading a shot.

If the print gremlins are still causing chaos, don’t worry – we’ve got your back! Shoot us an email at kontakt.korkionline@gmail.com or fill out the form on our Contact page.

  • Can I reproduce or redistribute your resources?

We totally get it! When you’ve found something as helpful as the resources on ESL Teaching Resources, it’s only natural to want to share with everyone you know. However, we kindly ask that you consider your ESL Teaching Resources subscription as a personal treasure. For more specifics on what’s cool and what’s not, you can brush up on our Terms and Conditions. We truly appreciate your understanding and respect for the work we do!

  • Do you offer refunds?

Just so you know, due to the nature of our digital, downloadable e-resources, we aren’t able to provide refunds. That being said, we’re all about helping you light up your classroom with a sparkle of educational magic!

So, if our teaching tools aren’t making you groove around your kitchen with a grin of pedagogical prowess, we definitely want to know. After all, Top Teacher was crafted with you in mind.

  • What do I do if I’ve forgotten my password?

Oh, we totally get it! As teachers, our minds are like browser tabs – so many open at once. Juggling lesson planning, grading papers, and the constant vigilance against the nose-picking brigade? Phew, it’s a whirlwind!

So, if your password has slipped your mind amidst all this, worry not! Just tap on ‘Forgot Password?’ at the login portal, and we’ll whisk you back into your account faster than you can say “Don’t eat that glue stick!”. Hang in there, superhero, we’ve got your back!

  1. Shimmy over to the ‘Account Settings’ tab.

  3. Then just fox-trot your way through the steps to change your password.

And voila! Your password is as fresh as newly sharpened pencils on the first day of school. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

  • How do I change my email address?

Got an old email address hitched to your account? No worries at all! Here’s the quick and fun fix:
