Each ESL/ESOL student has different needs depending on the country of origin and the skills already obtained. For a beginner adult, we would start with basic life skills vocabulary. For example, we would learn vocabulary and role play going to the grocery, visiting the gym or answering the phone. For a child, the focus would be on learning English through play. There would be an emphasis on vocabulary needed for functioning at school and among friends.
For 25 years I have taught French at all levels including Advanced Placement and International Bac. I studied in Paris for a year and have taken students to France several times. For little children I focus on the fun of learning a language. If they have the motivation, they will later pick it up more easily. For high school students I will evaluate the need and zero in on that. I am also available for conversation groups.
