Teaching English as an additional language

From Teflpedia
(Redirected from TEAL)

TEAL is the acronym for Teaching English as an Additional Language and is mainly aimed at school pupils who have settled in the UK, either for a short time or for those who have settled permanently.[1]

Generally speaking, it covers both English as a second language (ESL) and English as a foreign language (EFL) as it concerns children who speak a different language at home, while living in an English-speaking country, and only speak English at school. It therefore requires additional skills that go beyond "mere" language skills.
