About Teachit Language

Some Teachit Language resources

The history

Teachit Language was launched in 2006 as an additional subscription service within Teachit for A Level English Language teachers. The aim was to provide comprehensive, specialist support for an area which at the time was under-resourced in terms of practical classroom materials, and was a source of anxiety to many English teachers, since most of us have our first degrees in Literature, not Language or Linguistics.

Teachit Language was based on a partnership of teachers, examiners, students and HE academics and developed by Tim Shortis and Julie Blake. It included access to a substantial collection of complete units of work, published between 2006 and 2012.

These units are based on authentic materials, including facsimile texts and audio/video clips. They were originally designed for AQA B, but remain applicable to new specifications and to other boards. We hope that they'll continue to prove relevant and stimulating for teachers and students of language for years to come.

Teachit Language now

You no longer need a separate subscription to access the Teachit Language units. You'll find the units collected together in the Language library and within each KS5 Language subject area, alongside all our other resources - look out for the Teachit Language unit icons!
