Hi, we're Hal and Steve

We're just like you, ESL teachers.


We make daily conversation activities and lessons for ESL teachers. We met each other in South Korea in 2012, where both of us were in our first years as ESL teachers. It was fun. It was exciting. But it was also super stressful.

At first, it was tough to find our footing in the classroom


As public school teachers, we were thrown into the classroom without training, coursebooks, or basic class supplies. After talking to our peers, we realized this was a pretty common occurrence. We had to figure out how to teach all of our public school students all on our own. We relied on the advice of many of our new expat friends and a few trusty websites.

We've all been there: thrown into a class without curriculum, resources, or class supplies.


We somehow survived that experience, and in 2014 we decided to open our own private academies with our own English conversation material. At public schools or private academies, we believe that the role of an English teacher is to get the kids to communicate! If the kids aren't talking, then they're not learning! All of our materials are made with that end in mind.

So we decided to make our own English Conversation lessons & activities...


And that's why we've made Hal and Steve English. We want to share our English conversation activities and lessons with every ESL teacher. There's no reason that teaching should be frustrating. There's no reason that you should be nervous or frustrated in the classroom. Just use our lessons and you'll see how to have fun, effective English classes.

Here's What ESL Teachers Around The World Say

Rowan Jethro Hudson

ESL Teacher

"I've found Hal and Steve's adult lessons better than anything else for adult conversation classes - a nice mix of reading, vocabulary, and questions on interesting topics that invite discussion. They work well both 1 on 1 and with small groups."

Lisa Macyntire-Park

Academy Director

"I love Hal & Steve English materials because my students find the warm up activities and discussion topics very engaging. Classes run smoothly because students keep talking!"

Neenee Jo

Cambridge Test Prep Center Director

" Being a busy teacher I needed engaging adult lessons that didnt require much of my time to prepare. Thanks to Hal and Steve's lessons, they hit that nail right on the head!"

Amye Hwang

ESL Teacher

"Hal and Steve's materials are amazing and there is so much you can do with them! I use them for online teaching, but have so many things I would use them for in a real classroom! They make such quality materials that my young kids love! Thanks, guys♡"

Jessica Link

ESL Teacher

"Hal and Steve English has provided me with tons of lesson ideas and conversation topics just when I feel like my own ideas have all run out. I'm terrible at starting fun conversations, especially ones that would interest someone half my age, so this is a great source of a variety of activities that my (often unmotivated) students have actually really enjoyed. Thank you!!"
