Who Are We?

We provide ESL lessons to institutions, teachers and students around the world, for use either online or in hard copy formats. Our lessons are based on Thomson Reuters news stories.

English-to-go was first launched on to the Internet in 1998 when a small team of teachers, designers and web developers decided to work together. That means we have been around longer than Facebook, MySpace, Itunes, Napster, Ipads and even Ipods for that matter. And we're still here and still developing great downloadable resources for teachers and online lessons for students.

We are a New Zealand based company, but our lesson base has been contributed to by teachers and helpers from all around the world: Australia, the United Sates, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, South Africa, Russia, ... even Brazil!

Because English-to-go has been around for so long, we have a huge database jammed packed with lessons. So, we looked into our "lesson cupboard" and put together the complete blended learning package to make your teaching life organized and easy, and your lessons pedagogically sound and tested!

And because we wanted to be here now and into the future, we have kept our product simple and clean. When the market moved toward fancy "flash" products, we decided to stay with good, clean, html and javascript. As a result, unlike many of our competitors, our lessons are all compatible on Ipads and work just fine!
