FAQs

To teach English as a Second Language, do I need to speak a foreign language?

No. English as a Second Language/English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESL/ESOL) instructors and/or tutors are not required to speak another language. Classes are comprised of adult learners who speak a variety of languages, therefore, many programs focus on an immersion method of teaching. This method encourages students to only speak English during class.
