English Lesson Packs On Patreon
I know that many of you will be unfamiliar with Patreon. So here are some frequently asked questions about English Lesson Packs on Patreon.
What is Patreon?
Patreon is a membership platform that allows artists and creators to get paid for their work. There are over 50,000 creators on the site with more joining every day. Patreon is an established site and provides a safe, secure and convenient way to help support people. You can visit the Patreon Help Desk if you have any specific questions regarding the platform.
How does it work?
You can become a Patron of English Lesson Packs by paying $4 a month. Simply click one of the Become a Patron buttons and you will be taken to the page you see below.
Hit select and sign up. You will be asked to fill out your details and then you will be a patron of English Lesson Packs. When you log in you will now have access to everything on www.englishlessonpacks.com and all future resources for as long as you are a patron. You can download the materials from the English Lesson Packs homepage on Patreon – https://www.patreon.com/lessonpacks or from www.englishlessonpacks.com.
That’s it. Really simple.
How does the money part work?
You can choose to pay by either PayPal or credit/debit card. You will be charged the moment you sign up and have access to all of the materials immediately. Your account/card will then be subsequently charged on the 1st of every month while you are a patron.
If you decide you no longer want to be a patron you can simply cancel at any time. As soon as you cancel you will lose all access to all the patron materials.
The Materials and Advantages on Patron
More games, activities, lesson plans, and Discovery Workbooks!
I will be posting more and more games and activities such as Cluedo: Who Fixed it? as well as the Desert Island Speaking Game on Patreon. These games and activities take many hours if not days to prepare. I want to be able to continue to post quality materials so having financial support will allow me to dedicate more time to this.
Patrons will also have Discovery Workbooks. Discovery Workbooks are creative and interactive EFL resources that will (hopefully) inspire students. Each Discovery Workbook is focused around a particular theme or topic. Each workbook contains a range of activities that progressively get more difficult so that in every workbook there is something for everyone. They contain text, audio, and video-based activities as well as games.
Patrons will also be the first to try out the latest resources such as the new Guided Lesson Plans.
Connect With Me and Other Teachers with Discord
Discord is an incredibly simple and easy to use platform that allows people from all over the world talk for free! I have set up a Discord so that Patrons of English Lesson Packs can talk with each other. This is a space for patrons to discuss teaching, share ideas or just have a virtual coffee together and talk about life. Non- patrons can come and ask questions too. If you have any doubts or questions about becoming a patron and you see I’m online (Phil – English Lesson Packs) just come and say hello. Just click the connect button in the sidebar and follow the instructions.
If you are already a patron and don’t know how to access Discord read this handy and simple guide from the guys on Patreon.
