Hi! My name is Gill, and I'm based in London, UK. I've been teaching for 25 years 21 years with the Open University, and for the past 8 years as a private tutor in EFL and related subjects.
I've been lucky to have had some inspirational English teachers in my life, and I love to pass my enthusiasm for the subject on to others. What I enjoy most about teaching EFL is meeting students from other countries and cultures, learning new things from them, tailoring my lessons to their particular needs, helping them improve their English, and seeing them progress in their lives and careers.
I discovered EngVid quite by chance, when looking for a lesson on rude words(!), and I liked the site so much that I recommended it to all my students. I've learnt (and am still learning) so much from watching the other tutors to find myself now appearing alongside them is thrilling beyond words.
Wishing you every success with your English studies, and please keep watching!

My boyfriend and I are completely different when it comes to grocery shopping.
A Lesson Learned from Grocery Shopping
I’m a very structured shopper.
I create a list of all the meals that I’ll have throughout the upcoming week. Then I’ll create a list of the ingredients and organize them by section. I know exactly what I have to get and where it’s located. I get in, and I get out.
My boyfriend is the total opposite.
He’s like a kid in a candy store. His favorite motto is: Who needs a stinkin’ list? He scours the aisles searching for whatever looks appetizing and tosses it in the cart. A new pizza dough. A delicious looking sauce. By the time we zip through the checkout line, we’ve spent at least $25 more (and I’ve rolled my eyes at least a dozen or so).
You see, not having a structured plan is good in some instances: like on a spur of the moment weekend trip.
Other times it’s important. Like when you’re packing for a long vacation abroad.
When it comes to your course or workshop, having a structure for the way you present your materials is best. Your lessons and modules are like a trip abroad. They are like my grocery shopping. Results are better when they are organized.
One of the questions I often get is: I’ve got all of this content, but how do I organize it all?
An organized lesson ensures that the learners:
– are not overwhelmed (because who needs yet another thing to make us frantic)
– see a consistent format within your course (because who wants to waste time searching around for information)
– know what information will be presented
– can follow along with the content (it shouldn’t take a rocket scientist to get to the juicy stuff)
So, what makes a good lesson? Glad you asked…
Introduction: This is where you introduce the concepts and give the learners a tease of what’s to come in the content. It’s like the pre-show to a concert. You can do this in many ways: a quote, a question, a statistic, a story, or even the good ‘ol bullet points that say what the lesson is going to be about. There a gazillion ways to introduce the content .
Lesson: This is the juicy stuff, the meat of the content. This is where you deliver the goods — the core of your course. Here you talk about the skills and specific knowledge that learners need to reach their goals. You’re inspiring learners to action with well laid out content.
Summary: At the end of the lesson, you should recap what was presented and share the main takeaways that learners should have come away with. The summary brings it all together — it’s like the whipped cream on top of ice cream — and whipped cream on top of anything is always delicious.
Homework: Yes, this is the good stuff. This is where you get learners to take action on the content you presented. Your goal, as a course designer, is to get learners to DO something as it relates to the course goals. Nothing is learned or gained from passively listening. Get them moving and seeing results! There are tons of ways to do this Action Sheets. engaging activities. and matching info to participant needs .
Resources: Want to help learners dive deeper? Have additional information to share, but it’s not really part of the core training? Here, you can add links to other content that will help learners even more!
So, there you have it — your lesson structure. So, when you’re putting together your course or workshop, this structure will bring consistency, less headache, and overall good experience. And, don’t we all want that. Me thinks so.
#1 Download this worksheet for each of your lessons/modules. Use it as a template to format your content! Then pat yourself on the back for a job well done. You deserve it! (Click to download.)
#2 In the Comments below, let us know:
1. Are you a planner or do you usually fly off the seat of your pants? Spill the beans. I won’t judge!
2. Which area above do you need to focus on for your upcoming course?
I must be a hybrid, Jennifer – structured in my approach but with a tendency to go with the flow. 🙂
Being constantly aware of your student/participant’s needs is important. Sometimes we plan our course in a particular manner but the questions that come up show that the student is ready for more information to resolve a road block that is getting in the way.
This is easier in a live setting where the trainer gets a chance to observe the student and pick up on what is required. For an online training, one has to keep asking open questions to give the right level of support.
That is when we as trainers get a chance to show that we are thinking on our feet to make the training a memorable experience.
Thank you for the new template!
Wooohoo! I completely agree, Vatsala! It’s super important to be aware of the folks taking your course — any way you can. Having a group outside of the course is helpful as people can ask questions!
Glad you like the new printable. Cheers!
Haha me and my boyfriend are exactly the same, so funny! I’m always making lists for everything, and he’s the “we’ll see what happens” kind of guy. We keep each other in balance I guess 🙂
If I were ever in a supermarket with you I’m sure we’d be at the checkout within 5 minutes, haha. Super efficient.
I love the structure you recommend. It makes me realize I have to pay even more attention to the “homework” part of the course I’m creating. Awesome, thanks chicka!
We definitely will be in and out. And, while the boyfriends are still shopping we’ll be sipping wine at the bar…ha.
Yes..the homework is the juicy part — getting people to take action is what makes change happen!
Great post Jennifer! I’m definitely a planner. I don’t like to wing it much unless I absolutely have to, and even then, I’m grumpy lol. I need to focus on the introduction really. But like my writing, I’ll do the intro last 🙂
This year was a big eye opener in terms of understanding that I need to plan. I have less headache and more free time when I plan things out!
Yeah, I tend to jump around while I’m writing, too. If it’s broke, don’t fix it! Cheers!
You and I have that in common. I have a grocery list, it’s organized. I like to get in, get out and get on with my life lol.
I like to be spontaneous with some things but work and business isn’t one of them. I like to reserve that for certain aspects of my personal life. Like you said, vacations and other recreational things, I don’t mind playing that by ear sometimes.
“Nothing is learned or gained from passively listening.” So right! I learn and retain things better when I can act on what I’ve learned. I knew I wasn’t the only one.
Hey Lea. I totally agree…ha. I need to get on with my life. Matter of fact, I really dislike grocery shopping. Guess that’s why I love making those lists.
That quote reminds me of the book, the Alchemist when he talks about taking action. That’s going to be my mantra for the upcoming year!
I love how you make this so actionable, Jennifer. Sometimes, doing so much planning seems so daunting that it is hard to know where to begin. You make it easy to see the value of being organized and the fact that in the long run it saves time to plan. Thanks!
