My experience teaching ESL in three different countries and with a wide range of students has helped me to develop a large tool kit of engaging strategies and methods. Gone are the days of text book language learning. From PWIM to TPR, methods need to engage students so that language can be imprinted in their angular gyrus, Wernicke's area and Broca's area of the brain.

English

Why learn English? Just after Mandarin and Spanish, English is the third most common native language in the world and it is definitely the most learned second language. English is the today's world's lingua franca. Many occupations and professions require at least working knowledge of English, as it has become the most widely used language used in international publications, international trade, telecommunications, entertainment and diplomacy.

How hard is it to learn English compared to other languages? It depends, of course, on the languages you speak already. The most difficult aspects of learning English are the vast vocabulary, the differences between spelling and pronnunciation, the subtleties of grammar and the different ways it is used around the world.
