Welcome! Our new Lesson Library will be a showcase of the best lesson plans from TIL teachers. Thorough, detailed, and designed to make the most of everything thisislanguage.com has to offer, these plans have been tried and tested in the classroom. If you’re ever in need of a little inspiration, why not give one a go?

We’ll be adding lessons all the time, so if you’ve taught a lesson recently that deserves some Lesson Library fame, let us know! Email holly@thisislanguage.com to get involved.

This week, Jane Basnett from Downe House has shared a lesson plan on charity work that she uses with her Year 10 French classes. It’s everything you need for a whole lesson, with a little help from some of the newest TIL features. Thank you, Jane!
