ESL Brains is creating English lesson plans for teachers

We are a couple of teachers and life partners from Poland passionate about English and teaching. For two years, we’ve been creating and sharing free video-based lesson plans as part of our project called ESL Brains. Now we want you to join our community to take ESL Brains to the next level and bring a lot more fresh content for teaching English as a Second Language.

Many years ago, we realized that English coursebooks are just not good enough to base your teaching solely on them. Most of the time the available content is outdated, topics too cliché to get students interested and too general to fulfill needs of individual learners. That’s why we look for authentic, inspiring and thought-provoking materials to not only teach English but also touch important and real-life issues and ideas worth sharing.
The interest in ESL Brains has outgrown our expectations and we’re at a point where this has started to take a lot of our time and money. The more people visit our site, the better and more user-friendly site we want to develop. And obviously this process is costly and time-consuming. We want to keep ESL Brains alive and to do so it has to be sustainable. We'll be still uploading new lesson plans free for everyone, however, our patrons will also have other benefits and get some special materials.

Join us and together we can make it happen!

Best regards,
Justa and Stan

This is just as if you'd get us beer at a bar. We really value that :) You're even closer to our hearts:


  • (you get all of the benefits from the tier above),
  • you've just become an ESL Brains beta-tester. Your will be the first to get our lesson plans, test them with your students and tell us what worked and what needs improving.
Get special content!

This makes us stop putting our money to maintain the site at this level. Seriously, when you add up all the costs of hosting, domain, WP plugins, newsletter service (Mailchimp), graphics (Freepik + Canva), code changes, dealing with bugs and finally our own time spent to find resources, create and publish a lesson plan, this is what you get.
