This course provides an overview of teaching English as a second language (ESL), beginning with a brief historical survey. Participants review basic principles of teaching ESL listening, reading, speaking, and writing, and examine the roles of teacher and learner, materials, texts, curricula, and lesson planning. In each area, instruction combines current theory, practical information, and resources. The class concludes with information on professional ESL associations, conferences, and employment locally, nationally, and abroad.
