It’s quite similar, the only difference is, if I’ve dropped the .wordpress.com extension in the URL. THAT’S IT… nothing drastic 🙂

o, and now you can join a forum / community chat to inquire, discuss, and learn about the various aspects pertaining to living and teaching abroad right from people who have done just that.

I still get nervous butterflies before meeting a new class

I still get nervous butterflies when introducing a new lesson. You never know how its going to go over with the class. If you explanation will go right. If they understand. If they will get what you intend for them to get from the lesson.

I wonder if veterans can vouch if this ever goes away… Guess I’ll find out in time :0

What is ESL? What is EFL? and what is the difference?

ESL stands for “English as a Second Language.” TESL stands for Teaching English as a Second Language.

Now you may have heard of ESL, EFL, ESOL and/or TESL, TEFL & TESOL.

The “T” always stands for Teaching. 

The “E” always stands for English.

The “S” and the “F” is where it may get a bit confusing.

S = Second (Language); F = Foreign (Language)

When the “S” is used (appropriately), it refers to teaching English to non-native English speakers of the language in a country where English is the main language. i.e., You teach ESL to spanish speakers in America.

When the “F” is used (appropriately), it refers to teaching English to non-native speakers of the language outside of an English speaking country, often times in the learners OWN country, i.e. teaching English in South Korea. English is not a second language to them, it is a foreign language.

ESOL = English to Speakers of Other Languages
