Suggested Curriculum
Pre-literate Classes
The Light is Coming (Reading) Christian Literacy Associates The best reading curriculum I’ve found for those who do not read at all that can be used with an ESL textbook.  You can use this in combination with Foundations (pre-beginning-low-beginning) Longman or Crossroads (beginning-intermediate) Oxford 
Literacy Plus A and B (pre-literate-high intermediate) Longman
The best conversation and reading instruction combined that I’ve found.
Laubach Way to English (literacy-low intermediate) and Laubach Way to Reading
New Readers Press If you don’t like the two options above, using the two of these together is another option.
Basic Oxford Picture Dictionary Program (pre-literate) Oxford Has reproducible student pages.
Pre-beginner Literate Classes
Longman ESL Literacy (pre-beginning) Longman
Access (pre-beginning) Longman Used with students not ready to go into Side by Side Longman
Foundations (pre-beginning) Longman Used with students not ready to go into Side by Side Longman
Taking Off (pre-beginning) McGraw Hill Used with students who are not ready to go into All Star McGraw Hill
Beginner – Intermediate Literate Classes
All-Star (beginner-intermediate) McGraw Hill 4 levels
Crossroads (beginner-intermediate) Oxford 4 levels Another great all-skills program that begins on a lower level than Side by Side and All-Star and progresses a little slower so that you don’t have to begin in the Foundations book with Side by Side or Taking Off with  All-Star. Excellent for students with lower educational back rounds. *It also comes with a multilevel activity and resource binder which has worksheets that are reproducible for each lesson. The worksheets can be copied at the beginning of the semester and placed in a pocket folder with brads for students to use all semester. This is a wonderful resource for ESL apartment ministries, ministries that have more transience or those on a low budget.
Side by Side (beginner-intermediate) Longman 4 levels One of the best all-skills programs with a placement test which places students into the correct book.
Word by Word Teacher’s Resource Book and Activity Master with Word by Word Basic Picture Dictionary Longman 
Great for apartment ministries and mission trips because of the reproducible activity sheets and many activities.
English Lessons I and English Lessons II  (mid beginner) The North American Mission Board’s Bible based curriculum. If you want to teach the Bible more fully and ESL, this is the best series to use. You must be diligent to make the dialogue relevant to everyday life.
Survival Classes
Ready to Go Series Longman  4 level
