Hello! My name is Jeffrey Hill and I’m an English teacher at the EM Normandie business school in Le Havre, France. I’m originally from Plymouth in the UK, but have lived and worked in France since the early eighties. Before that, I spent two years teaching in Spain.
In 2005, I started The English Blog, a blog for learners and teachers of English, and there you can find over 9,000 posts along with links to some of my other ESL projects and materials.
I’ve always enjoyed doing and making crosswords, and often use them in class with my students. Having accumulated dozens of crosswords over the years, I thought it would be a good idea to create a site where I could share old and new puzzles with teachers and learners of English — and promote my crossword books!
About the Crosswords
All the crosswords on this site are available either as PDFs, which can be downloaded, printed, and photocopied, or as interactive online puzzles, which can be completed on a computer or mobile device.
Each crossword corresponds to a level of difficulty (Elementary, Intermediate, Advanced) and a topic (General, Thematic, Business). Sign up to the Crossword English newsletter to receive the daily crossword by email.
About My Books
In 2015 had two books of crosswords published by Ellipses in France: English Crossword Puzzles Levels 1 & 2. These are available on Amazon in France, the UK, Spain, and Germany. In 2016, I created a PDF e-book called 101 Thematic Crosswords for Learners of English, which you can purchase here.
If you have any comments or suggestions, please get in touch. I’d be happy to hear from you.
