Teaching Special Groups in ESL - Monolingual vs. Multilingual Classes


This video covers the differences teachers encounter when teaching monolingual and multilingual classes. Monolingual students all have the same native language. Multilingual students have different first languages. Watch this video to find out how to deal with these types of classes as a teacher.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

The focus of the final unit of this course was on troubleshooting. From how to deal with reluctant students to how to fully engage a large class, this unit covered many common problems we may come up against as TEFL teachers and gave examples on how we may be able to solve them.Reviewing some of the thing that we have learned until now was useful for me to refresh my memory and be sure that important stuff was not forgotten. At the end of this course I am very happy of all the things that I have learned as well as feeling confident in my future career.In this lesson I learned how to plan a normal daily lesson. I learned that there isn't a set way of teaching and that I should be flexible while maintaining the goal of what is to be taught. I also learned how to put the study, engage, and activate phases into planning a lesson.
