English as a Second Language

English as a Second Language (Inglés como segunda idioma)

ESL (English as a Second Language) or ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages) describes the teaching and learning that occurs when English is used as the primary language of instruction to those whose native language is not English. Although it is not necessary to understand the non-native speaker’s language in order to teach ESL, it certainly helps. Language acquisition usually occurs when the instruction centers around listening, speaking, reading, and writing activities.
