In this session of “Let’s Talk About it,” we discussed TEFL, or Teaching English as a Second Language, and the benefits of learning a different language! Thank you to everyone who joined the conversation! At the end of this post, I included resources I used in this livestream along with additional information regarding TEFL.
I addressed the following questions:
Why is it important to learn a second language?
What is TEFL?
Why is TEFL an important asset to U.S. education?
. . .
What other languages do you speak?
What benefits have you found from speaking a second language?
