    Teaching adults has its own set of challenges and rewards for the ESL teacher.

    Teaching adults is quite different from teaching children. Adults have more experience on which to draw, and classroom management isn't as much of a concern. In addition, they're usually more motivated and have a real need for learning the language. However, they do acquire the language differently than children do.

    This course provides an introduction to the specifics of teaching adults, and includes helpful links, videos of real teachers teaching adults, quizzes, tests and examples of lesson plans.

What is the difference between TEFL, TESL and TESOL?

TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. The term TEFL is mostly used when English is being taught in a country where it isn't the native language(e.g. teaching English to Chinese people in China). TESL is similar to TEFL and stands for Teaching English as a Second Language. This is where English is being taught to non-native speakers of English in a country where it is the native language (e.g. teaching non-native emigrants in the UK/USA). Finally, TESOL stands for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and encompasses both TESL & TEFL.
