What’s Patreon and how it works

Patreon is a way to join your favourite creator’s community and pay them for making the stuff you love. This platform allows us to create more content and support this website, while you can become a real-life patron of our website. Thanks to such support, we as creators, can continue developing ESL Brains and you can benefit more from the content we publish here.

How does Patreon work?

Basically, you create an account at Patreon and pledge a certain amount to our cause. You get charged when you pledge and at the beginning of each month. Of course, there is no time commitment here so you can resign whenever you want. BTW all the personal data and payment details are stored by Patreon so we actually don’t need to handle all that sensitive information.

What you get as a Patron?

Besides our endless gratitude and appreciation, we also offer certain benefits to our Patrons. See the list below:

As you can see 5$ Tier (Beta-Teachers) gets you all the extra worksheets added to our lessons plans, while the $10 Tier additionally gives you access to the Flipped Classroom section.

How to become a Patron and unlock the content

The best way is to click the “Become a Patron” button under one of the posts with premium materials:


You’ll be transferred to Patreon site where you’ll need to create an account and choose the Tier.

Unlocking content on ESL Brains

Afterwards, you will need to return to the website and you should be logged in and have the content unlocked. If not then, then just click the “Log in with Patreon” button available in the sidebar of any post:


(if you don’t see that button it means your logged in!).

How to cancel Patreon membership

Now, if at any time you decide that you don’t want to continue being our Patron, all you need to do is cancel the membership via Patreon.
