TESOL Concepts

How do EFL students learn best?

To be an effective English-as-a-foreign language (EFL) educator is to understand what students need and how best to provide it to them. In the past, educators have used a variety of audio-lingual, grammar translation, and direct methodologies, among others. Accordingly, EFL pedagogy has gradually developed into an entity that is now more engaging, educational, and active. What does this approach look like? It involves EFL study that is:

  • content-based
  • task-based
  • skills-based
  • student-centered
  • interactive
