  2. 2.  The intrinsic value to the prospective ESL teacher of the exampled ESL resource materials seen below, and presented here from two internet ESL resource sites, is left to the reader.  The highly specialized educational material that the ESL teacher is able to derived from his/her major degree, and the various teaching/learning/lecture methodologies assimilated during its accomplishment are invaluable innate resources in themselves, that have fortuitously turned the prospective TESOL teacher into a veritable mine of usable ESL materials. And, the greater life’s experience has been for the prospective ESL teacher, the broader the spectrum of innate usable ESL teaching resources.  Resources are prerequisite in order that the ESL teacher maintains a constant updating of usable material for the ESL classroom.
  3. 3.  There are literally thousands of free down-loadable resource materials, from myriad internet sites, for both teachers and students that fall into several categories, e.g. at ; www.British it is possible to download lesson plans, grammar resources, interactive testing programs for student participation, forums about teaching Preschool, K1- K12 and adult student levels, alongside ever upgraded teaching resources.  Preschool to K1-k12 Grade levels of ESL Teacher resources can also be found on the internet at“resources ESL teachers”.
  4. 4.  With the early childhood student levels ESL teachers need to be fully prepared to take up all challenges that early childhood teaching presents because, arguably, preschoolers, and K1-K2 kindergarten students through to K1-K8.are some of the most competitive and determined L2 students they are likely to encounter. The TESOL 111 and TESOL 1V teacher training course units currently being offered by Australia City College (ACC) are designed to provide student TESOL teachers with teaching technique, classroom management skills, and sound ESL teaching approaches for these highly complex early L2 student levels.
  5. 5.  Here below are some of examples from two early childhood ESL resource supply sites: http;//; and http;//
