Have you ever heard about ESOL in education? If not, let’s figure it out.
What is ESOL?
English is taught to people who are not native speakers and whose first language is not English, but who live in English-speaking countries (the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand).
ESOL stands for English for Speakers of Other Languages.
Why is ESOL for?
You will need to pass ESOL if you are applying for UK Citizenship and a job, or entering a university.
Additionally, this exam can help you to improve your English and use it in other ways, for example:
- helping your kids with their school work;
- understand and talk to English speakers;
- continuing your education in English;
There are some other versions of ESOL: ESL, EFL, EAL. They mean the same.
