How do ESL teachers accommodate a diverse classroom?

I'm 28 years old and I am going back to college to get certified to teach English as a second language. I'm hoping that there is someone out there with experience in TESOL that can help me get a better idea what I can expect in the classroom and with my students. I want to do the best I can to make sure my students become successful in English! #teaching #bilingual-teacher #esol #tesol

The single best thing you can do is to be prepared. Have your lessons, activities, and materials at the ready. Fully understand every point of the specific grammar, syntax, etc. you are covering that day/week. Your students will have questions you haven't considered. The better prepared you are, the easier it will be to understand their view and question and answer that question.


Second, be flexible. Whether you are teaching a class of people who all share the same first language or a language-heterogeneous group, something will happen that will seem to derail your plans: an argument about the correct word in their first language, a disagreement about seat choice, an inattentive student who requires you to repeat the last 5 minutes of activity, etc. If you see the event as a derailment, it will be one. However, if you are flexible and use the event as a teaching moment or turn it into an example of the theme/topics, the event will be useful.

English as a second language (ESL) teachers work with non-native speakers to help them learn to speak, read, understand, and write in English. They may work in public or private schools, language academies, or teach private lessons out of their home or the homes of students. It will able you to teach aboard.
