As an ellii user since 2018, I'd like to say that the service has made for up-to-date and engaging classes. There have been many positive changes and improvements over the years and recently which encourage interactive learning. My students enjoy using the platform in synchronous and asynchronous class times to learn valuable information and to develop measurable skills.
Thank you ellii for bringing this excellent resource to my ESL world. And for making this teacher's workload more manageable too!

This is music to our ears! Thanks so much for your comment, Toni Lynn. I've shared it with our whole team!

I love your site because it encompasses all three learning styles; auditory, visual and tactile. My learners are adult emergent literacy L2 learners, and they love the ease and functional aspect of the program.

It's so wonderful to hear from a literacy teacher as we've been working to improve our materials and platform for this level. Thanks for taking the time to tell us this, Shay!

Charlene N.(Teacher)

I enjoyed using ESL Library for many years. I am excited to be introduced to the new options in Ellii. Wish the digital only options could be paper copies as well!

Hi Charlene, thanks for letting us know what you'd like to see! We are trying to offer both PDF and digital versions of our materials as often as possible (it's not possible with for the materials in the "That's News to Me" section due to our partnership agreements).

Your hard work and dedication to TESL has made my job easier on a regular basis for the past 3 years. The amalgamation of learning skills allow me to pool from a variety of tools and exercises from all levels. I'm sincerely grateful and excited for what you have in store for the future. Congratulations on your 20th! Keep going!

I really like the changes you guys have been making lately. I hope some of the activities that are only available as printouts can become digital soon! Keep up the great work!

Thanks for letting us know what you're hoping to see, Charles! The publishing team has been hard at work digitizing our materials for the past few years, and our developers have been working to make more task types available on our digital platform. We appreciate your comment!

Yanire D.(Teacher)

Happy 20th birthday, ellii! Whenever I want to complement the topics discussed in my classes with extra readings, listening, or writing activities, guess what! You have just what we need. My students enjoy the interactive lessons. I am looking forward to seeing more lessons in the Writing in English section (for example, types of essays-comparison, argumentative, etc.) Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I teach adult Japanese ELLs online and I can't imagine doing it without the support of this site's materials. Ellii is hands down the best purchase I've made for my business and I will continue using it for the rest of time!
