Cloud Computing has been implemented in diverse fields and sector, including education sector with a very good success rate. The cloud deployments enhance the learning experience and provisions appropriate IT resources critical for a specific learning environment. This research study exploits a service model to deliver appropriate learning resources to foundation students and teachers that otherwise is not available with the current cloud service architectures. Language should not be a barrier to learning, teaching subjects in English to those who are not native English speakers, most of the times is a challenging job especially in circumstances where the English Language is introduced late in the school academic curriculum. There are several challenges faced by students, and teachers. Several mechanisms have been suggested and adopted to deal with such situations so that student learning experience is not affected in a significant manner, and at the same time, teachers are also not facing problems while explaining concepts or topics to students. This research paper is a study on helping teachers and students in these situations by providing cloud-based knowledge base related to TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages), repositories, and apps that may help and assist teacher and students.
