Who are we?
In early 1998 a small group of TESOL educationalists, designers and programmers
agreed to work together in their spare time on developing English-To-Go.
They spent nearly a year developing the teaching methodology and launched
the first instant English lesson in 1998. Aptly enough, this free English
lesson was called "Lift Off" and was about John Glenn's return
Our first online English lesson was released on Selfaccess.net in September
2001 for free and we looked at the smoking debate.
We have also developed a third site called InstantWorkbook.com. This site
contains interactive learning tools for English language that are linked
to Instant Lessons and other English-To-Go resources. These quizzes, games,
listening exercises, reading comprehension exercises and English grammar
exercises complement our materials from the www.english-to-go.com
Our websites and their content are created by an international team of
qualified and experienced TESOL teachers, ESL trainers, facilitators,
linguists, technicians and educational experts. The lessons are used in
more than 100 countries.
