Resources

The Bell Foundation offers a comprehensive range of resources to support English as an Additional Language (EAL) and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) teaching and development in UK and international schools and colleges, and the UK criminal justice system.

These resources are designed to develop the knowledge and skills of everyone who works with English language learners.  They have been created by EAL and ESOL experts and have been tried and tested within relevant settings. The resources aim to improve the outcomes for children, young people, communities, offenders and victims of crime who use EAL.
