What is ESL?


English as a Second Language

It is a program of instruction designed to support English-language learners. ESL teachers instruct students in reading, writing, and conversing with focus on cultivating conversational and job-related communication skills. Oftentimes, students enroll in such programs to use the language in work, school, or abroad.

What is Online ESL?

Online ESL is when lessons are conducted through virtual classrooms instead of using traditional modes of education. This means that a lesson is done conveniently with the use of an Internet connection and a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Online ESL schools use website platforms for their service. This is where the students and tutors access learning materials, system support, and the like.
