About Us
EnglishGateway is about word combinations. We collect them and organize them into topics. We incorporate them into a context. Our materials are authentic and reflecting the real thoughts and emotions of the native English speakers.

The site has been created by a team of professional ESL teachers and linguists specializing in Second Language Acquisition (SLA).

As teachers, we witnessed the great difficulty of our students to look at the language as consisting of word "chunks" or word combinations. Although these chunks are made up of several words, they have a unique meaning that must be learned . These "chunks" are often represented by collocations, phrasal verbs and idioms that, once mastered, contribute to better communication between native and non-native speakers of English.

As linguists, we advocate the Lexical Approach (Lewis, 1993) of language learning that is prioritizing learning vocabulary in "chunks" for a better memory retention, higher level of fluency, ability to negotiate the meaning effectively and reducing the cultural gaps between the speakers. Our role was to ensure that all these principals are taken into consideration when designing the materials of the site.

We thank you for using our materials and are positive they'll make you more competent in the English language!
