I am building a website to Teach English as a Second Language. Does anyone know of a good theme for this type of site? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Make a living, make a difference.

hey hi Mark --- yes, a tremendous question that you've asked considering there's thousands, literally, thousands to choose from! ... lol ... chuckles! ...

if u had a chance to catch Jay's Friday WAbinar on WordPress, he mentions his favs -- and by the way, it's WordPress this month of July training so you're in luck! ... he likes Omega (free one) and Generate Press (paid one) ... i've found that Astra indexes fast! ... and also check out Marion's favs -- our WA techie 'guru!' ...
plus if you're just building a new one -- you're in luck as WA will auto-install Kraken now ... (for images) ....

hope that helps you for now and when i think of any others that you might find choice, then, I'll flip it over to ya! ...

enjoy the rest of a wonderful weekend & beautiful week ahead,

happy site building -- cheerio ... :)

.... Carson posted a blog about it last week -- here it is in case you missed -- if i recall correctly -- Kraken is only for NEW sites being installed / built ....

-- all existing sites, i think, will eventually be migrated over -- need to check this ...and if you do replace, i think there's a cost factor & some techie mumbo-jumbo that comes with it... lol ... !

... soo-o suggest you might want to leave your existing sites as is for now? ...

... anyway, that's what i'm doing for the time being -- stickin' with EWW -- until i understand its functions better ... Kraken is new soo-o will need to learn more about it, that is ... :)

*** you're most welcome as usual --- if you're just installing a new site, kraken should be avail. as an auto-install default image optimizer vs ewww ... :) ***

I saw a review looking for a client some months ago. They decided to use another website person, but I kept this information which you can review and decide if helpful.
If you would like that info, let me know.

May I suggest that you don't get stuck on a theme right now? I'm using the same boring Heiro theme that Kyle uses in his tutorials. Its pretty blah but the thing is we can switch it ANY time we want. I plan on taking some time to find a better one. Having said that, what does everybody else think - I would like a nice banner across the top that isn't too huge but that I stick a nice picture on that would relate to my niche. What would you suggest out of the premium ones we have available?

It took me 8 months before i switched. Lol
There is a Magizkine one that might fit the bill for you. The exact name escapes me this morning..try doing a search for Magazine themes ..they have free or pro.

Hey Mark.

All I can maybe suggest is maybe have a look at what sort of website themes that your possible competitors are using.

Does any take your fancy?

Is this the look/layout that I'm envisaging?

This is what I do if I need to get the creative juices flowing and maybe take some ideas/pointers from what I saw

Hope this helps.

Hi Shan,

I have tried to do that checking competitor but couldn't determine what them they were using,

How do you figure that out?

Would be helpful right now as I'm at an impasse of how to proceed with my site, what to offer, what to write about going forward, etc.

Appreciate your assistance on this.

Thanks,
Sue:)

I'm a little confused. do you have your website up and running?

Sorry for the confusion

My site is up and running...still working on tweaking trying to tweak the font on the heading, haven't figured that out yet.

I was wanting to check my competition in my niche and you had suggested to a member who wasn't sure what theme to pick, to check their competition to see what theme they used

How do you figure out what theme the competition website is using?
