TOESL (Teaching of English as a Second Language)

Teaching of English as a Second Language (TOESL) refers to the instruction of English to non-native speakers who are learning the language while living in an English-speaking country. TOESL focuses on helping learners develop the language skills necessary for daily communication, academic success, and cultural integration. TOESL programs often include lessons in grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Teachers use a variety of methodologies and materials to support learners' language development and adaptation to their new environment.
