What is The Role of The Teacher in an ESL Classroom? - TEFL Blog


Tue, 14 Jan 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas What is The Role of The Teacher in an ESL Classroom? Teachers play an essential role in educating their students. While teachers are known for this, they also serve many other roles. Teachers set healthy environments for the classroom, motivate students to perform well, can provide cultural expertise outside of the student's traditions, and have a greater understanding of the general difficulty in learning English as a second language. The role of the teacher is to guide the student, allowing them to perform to the best of their ability.

After completing the last assignment the confidence gained from it gave you the courage to strike up a conversation with the waiter at the restaurant where you were dining. He was from the country of your target language. You said "hello" and also read the menu and ordered it in the TL. Why? Where did this confidence come from? I do not want to oversimplify the answer because learning a language takes time and effort, it is a compilation of many things, but...  [Read more]

Wed, 01 Apr 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas The Overview of Teacher’s Personal Qualities Playing a Significant Role in the Classroom I have always looked up to teachers regardless of the subject they master.

How Teaching ESL Differs from Teaching EFL - TEFL Blog


Wed, 27 Nov 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences How Teaching ESL Differs from Teaching EFL The terms ESL and EFL are often used interchangeably because at their root they both mean the same thing; English for people who are not native to the language. However, there are many possible differences between learners. Typically EFL stands for English as a Foreign Language whereas ESL means English as a Second Language. This means that generally speaking, those who fall into the ESL category live in a country where English is a primary language. EFL teachers are typically teaching to students in their home country where English is not typically a widely used language. For these reasons, ESL and EFL classrooms differ greatly.

What Teaching Skills Are Required in the Classroom? - TEFL Blog

Thu, 12 Dec 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas Bringing ESL into the Computer Age I play video games.
