Explained: ESL, ESOL and EFL and More
Students are often confused about the acronyms (words formed from the initial letters of other words) used in this subject, so we thought we’d give you a brief summary (we’re so good to you).
ESL (the acronym we use) is short for English as a Second Language. Here are some others:
- ESOL is short for English for Speakers of Other Languages
- EFL is short for English as a Foreign Language
You might see courses advertised using any of the above - they all mean almost the same thing. The courses will all assume that your first language is something other than English, and that your aim is to improve your English. Consider this your first lesson – there are often many different ways to say the same thing! Oh English, why must you be so complicated?
The Advantages of Playing Quizzes
Learning English can be very rewarding, but it isn't an easy language to master. Not only are students expected to know the pronunciation of words, they also need to learn grammar, vocabulary, the differences between spoken and written English, and the various exceptions that crop up regularly. Phew. Scared yet? Don’t be! We believe that playing interactive quizzes makes learning the language a lot more interesting than just reading books.
Every time you give an answer, you will be told which answer is correct. More importantly, there are helpful comments that accompany every question that will explain the reasoning. Our expert teacher has been teaching English for many years, so he knows what problems you are likely to experience. He’s very smart, you’re in safe hands!
