Our Story

Most English learners get confused with how native speakers talk. At ESL With Purpose, we create fun educational tools which help English learners get the skills they need to succeed in life.
Phrase It™ is a game designed to help millions of English Language Learners get "aha" moments while understanding how to use English. Through versatility and fun, it inspires and innovates creative development and critical thinking skills.

After years of teaching ESL, Alex found a need to develop a tool to help English language learners through the use of phrasal verbs. Often an overlooked aspect of English language learners, the use of phrasal verbs form a critical piece or constructive glue that enhances fluency like a native English speaker. Although there are over 5,000 phrasal verbs in English, learning the most common ones can make a difference in understanding news headlines, reading articles, speaking and listening at the grocery store, getting a loan for a business, paying the bills, and a whole range of survival skills.

Educators, ESL instructors, students, friends and family may enjoy these games in class, at a coffee shop, or anywhere they want to practice phrases in English while having fun. We also develop educational toys and resources for instructors in preschool or K-12 settings, parents, grandparents, and others who find our materials useful and fun.
