About Us

Footnotes English is a resource site for students and teachers of ESL, English for Academic Purposes, and second language writing.  Our goal is to provide short practice opportunities on specific topics that can cause problems for language learners who have studied the basics of a target point.  These are the “footnotes” at the end of most grammar sections. Also, we create focused classroom activities to improve students’ fluency and academic skills to help them achieve their goals.
