HeadshotWelcome to my site! I’m Allison Lewis, and I’m an adult ESL teacher in Chicago, Illinois. I have a bachelor’s degree in English and Secondary Education, and I received my master’s degree in Linguistics/TESOL from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

I created this blog as a way to post resources and ideas for other ESL teachers or any other language teachers who want to use a communicative, comprehension-based approach to teaching language.

If you’re new to the idea of comprehension-based teaching, I recommend that you start with my posts “Why I Teach with a Focus on Comprehensible Input” and “How Do I Teach with Comprehensible Input?”
