Who We Are
Your Agora began with a couple of teachers who believed ESL teaching could be easier and more creative if there were a platform where teachers could help each other and their students by working together.
Our History/Our Story
Your Agora started with a teacher who believed English teaching could be easier and more creative if there were a platform where teachers could share and modify their material amongst themselves before they gave it to their students. He assembled a team and together they built not just a powerful platform but a community of teachers who knew that with the right tools, together, they could do so much more that alone.
Your Agora aims at changing the way English teachers, students, and institutions operate by creating a new, online, open community space where teachers the world over can find, create, organize and share their thoughts and ideas freely and easily. With the right tools and the right people, we believe you can have your course, your content, your way.
