We are so excited to announce that ESL Library has a new name!
As of March 14, 2022, ESL Library will be known as Ellii. You can find us at ellii.com.
Why did we change our name?
For the past 20 years, we’ve been developing exceptional content for language teachers like you. Just as language evolves over time, so has our company. We’re no longer simply a library of print materials. Today we are one of the most widely used content and courseware platforms for English teachers in the world.
As an innovative EdTech company, our product continues to advance and expand, leaving us in need of a name that better reflects who we are, what we do, and where we are headed.
We also realize that ESL (English as a Second Language) is a term that’s not always recognized or used around the world. As we continue to grow, we believe our branding should be more universally reflective of our global community of teachers and students.
You may be thinking, Why "Ellii"? Watch the video below to learn more about our new name from our CEO and founder, Ben Buckwold.
While our name has changed, we’re still the same EdTech company—passionate about empowering English language teachers with high-quality, engaging content. Our mission remains the same as well: to connect the world through language. Under our new name, we remain dedicated to building the world’s most-loved language teaching platform, and we're excited to continue growing our global community of hard-working and inspiring teachers.
What about my bookmarks?
If you've saved ESL Library pages in your browser's bookmarks (or anywhere else), those links will automatically update and take you to the same page with the new address. There's no need to update anything.
What should my students know?
We highly recommend you let your students know that we've changed our name from ESL Library to Ellii. Why not make it part of your next language lesson? You can show them the video, which teaches them the spelling too: E-l-l-i-i.
Your students will still be able to access the site using the old address, but we highly recommend you give them the new login address: ellii.com/students.
Please note that you may see areas that still have the ESL Library name and logo, such as in our PDFs. This is a large project and it will take some time before all the rebranding is complete.
