Ideas for English Language Learners | Recipes, Travel, Idioms and More


This summer the New York Times has started a new monthly feature on The Learning Network called “Ideas for E.L.L.’s.”

Written by the teacher, author and “edublogger” Larry Ferlazzo, each edition offers classroom strategies for English language learners with links to recent Times articles, videos and photographs chosen to be both accessible and interesting to those for whom English is not a first language.

This month’s feature includes resources for making cloze activities, dealing with idioms, recipes, Obama’s “Deferred Action” program for certain undocumented immigrants, comparing and contrasting using video, city or neighborhood tours, and natural disasters.

See what Mr. Ferlazzo has found at
