Anchor Point:1What is the Staff Room?
The Staff Room is onestopenglish's exclusive subscription service, giving you access to our full database of resources as well as many other benefits.
Here is just a taste of how the Staff Room can help and enhance your teaching:
1. Enjoy our entire database of resources
You will be able to access our full database of over 8,000 resources, searchable by age, level, language focus and topic; the database is added to every week, so you're always sure to find something new. From articles and tips on a range of teaching aspects and approaches, to ready-to-use worksheets and lesson plans, and from interactive games to authentic listening materials, you'll have thousands of fantastic resources at your fingertips.
2. Find everything you need
Whether you teach children, teenagers, adults or business executives, onestopenglish is packed with resources for you. As a Staff Room member you'll find a wealth of materials in the core subject areas that matter most to you, including Grammar & Vocabulary, Exams, Business & ESP and Young Learners. You'll also find a special CLIL section for Content and Language Integrated Learning teachers, regularly updated with new materials.
3. Organize your teaching
Every Staff Room member can benefit from a personal, interactive Learning Calendar. This exciting new tool will allow you to save, organize and share all your favourite resources, and easily schedule your lessons in advance. You can find out more about the Learning Calendar here.
4. Refresh your classes with topical news lessons and authentic listening materials
As part of your Staff Room subscription, we'll publish a news lesson from the Guardian every week, edited at three different language levels and complete with student worksheets. You'll also find regular news lessons from Business Spotlight as well as from Spot on, a magazine written especially for teenagers studying English.
Our engaging listening materials include an ongoing series of authentic interviews with members of the public, an exclusive soap opera, and our exciting mini-plays on British culture: your students will be able to improve their listening skills with real-life contents and a huge variety of accents.
5. Never worry about quality again
All our resources are written and edited by our expert team of teachers and authors, offering you the guarantee of high-quality materials and up-to-date teaching approaches.
Anchor Point:2How can I access the Staff Room?
In order to access the Staff Room, you need to subscribe.

If you're interested in having access for more than one teacher, take a look at our Institutional Subscriptions, which enable an agreed number of colleagues to sign up to the Staff Room at a discounted price.
Anchor Point:3How much does a subscription cost?
