Voki Lesson Plans: ESL/ELL Lesson Plans

Happy New Year everyone!

Let’s ring in the New Year with new Voki lesson plans! We have prepared 3 new ESL/ELL lesson plans for non-English speakers!  Your students will enjoy learning about idioms, heteronyms, and writing about current events.

Idioms (Intermediate) – In this lesson, students will learn what idioms are and some of the most common idioms used in the United States.  Idiom is an expression that means something other than the literal meanings of its individual words. The class will discuss the different idioms they have heard in the past. This lesson allows students to understand the proper usage of idioms and their meanings.  Students will create their own Voki using the idioms taught.


Heteronyms (Beginner) – This lesson plan will teach students what heteronyms are and the different heteronym used. Heteronyms are words that are spelled the same but have different pronunciation and meaning.  Students will discuss about the different heteronym used and the definition of each words.  They will be required to create a Voki using at least 5 different pairs of heteronyms in sentences.


Current Events (Intermediate) – Students will pick out an interesting news article to read. They will learn how to summarize the article, describe the article, and write about how they feel about the article. Students will be required to create a Voki presenting their article.


Remember: The grade level assigned to each lesson plan is not set in stone. You can use Voki lesson plans for a higher, or lower, grade than the one you teach. Feel free to customize the lesson plans to fit your needs. These Voki lesson plans can be adapted to fit your style or your students’ abilities!

  1. Maybe someone can explain to me and my son how to make Voki work on our MAC or Surface tablet. No images of the Voki site appear on the tablet and we can get through a recording and save a file on the MAC, but it will not allow us to hit DONE. Without DONE it is not saving work.
