Subject: English as a Second Language
How can important English as a second language be?
As the primary spoken language in a country with a rich history of immigration and cultural diversity, English and its mastery are an important part of educational development. ESL is offered for people of all ages, though it is not part of the standard public school curriculum as it is not essential to all students. ESL is a supplementary, comprehensive English language program for students trying to learn the language to better function in American society. Though ESL is supplementary, ESL teachers may still be employed by the public school system. Many schools, especially in urban areas, have programs in which students set aside part of their normal school day to study the English language in a small group with the close supervision of an ESL teacher. Other ESL teachers may be employed by private institutes to offer English tutoring to speakers of other languages. Reference: https://teach.com/what/teachers-know/english-as-a-second-language-esl/
