What does all ESL abbreviations mean?

Every industry has a letter, and English teaching is no exception. If you are new to the world of language teaching, you can find these tin well. Let me translate most of the keywords that you will likely encounter in your ads for teachers and educational articles:

ABE: Adults Basic Training (GED Canadian Version). ACT : ACT is America's most widely accepted college entrance examination. It evaluates high school students to have general education development and ability to perform college-level work. Multiple elective tests involve four areas of expertise: English, Mathematics, Reading and Science. The writing test, which is optional, measures the skills in designing and writing a short essay.

CAI: Computer-aided instruction (such as CALL, but not necessarily teaching English).

CALL: Computer-aided language learning (using a computer for English language teaching).

CELTA: Study for Adult Teaching English (Cambridge). Very popular in Europe and elsewhere as an alternative to TESOL, especially if the school uses an English curriculum or uses English curriculum.

IV. Certificate in TESOL: This is the Australian version of the TESOL certificate. See below the definition of TESOL.

CELTYL: Study English Teaching for Young Students Cambridge version TEYL. See TEYL below.

COTE : Study for English overseas teachers. This was replaced by ICELT. See below.

DELTA: A Cambridge graduate thesis that brings CELTA to an incorrect level.

EAL: English as an add-on language (where people already know two or more – for example in Europe).

ECE: Early Childhood Education (This requires work in a daytime facility).

EFL: English as a foreign language (People generally show little or no exposure in English. English as a Second Language (People generally have some kind of exposure in English)

ELT: English Language Teaching (or Training)

ESOL : ESP: English Special Provisions (English for New Immigrants / Surviving English, English Language Courses, Business English, English for Accounting and Finance, English Courses, Medical English, Technical English, English for Tourism and GED: General Education Certificate (High School of Graduation for Mature Students Mostly in the US)

ICELT: Certificate is in English. This is a new course offered by Cambridge ESOL in place of COTE. See above. Experienced teachers sometimes do not have the basics as they are, want to deepen the understanding of the teaching process or who are already away from language teaching.

IELTS: International English Language Testing System. This is a British-based English test, used primarily for college and university entrance. It is very popular in the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. They lead to North America. The test was criticized in Canada as the English accents used in the student test are so different from the Canadian melodies. IELTS has recently launched an American site, so hopefully issues of issue are being handled and bordered from the north.

K-12: Kindergarten through grade 12.

KET: at high school level. Students usually have basic ESL education. PET follows. See the following PET.

PET: Preliminary English Test Cambridge test for ESL students at intermediate level. It is often given in schools during the year following KET.
