How ESL and EFL classrooms differ In her first guest post for OUP, Kate Bell, a writer and researcher, talks us through some of the practical differences between ESL and EFL classrooms. You may think that teaching English is teaching English, whether you’re doing it in a Thai village or a suburban California school. And you’d be right, sort of. Many of the same textbooks, lesson plans, and online resources serve in both cases. Many English teachers go from one type of teaching position to the other, and back again. An ESL classroom is in a country where English is the dominant language. An EFL classroom is in a country where English is not the dominant language. Based on these definitions, we can see that there are important differences in the student population. ESL students need Hands-on English lessons suitable for their immediate needs. EFL students need Lots of practice using English, especially orally. These are the key differences I see between these student communities and strategies to teach English accordingly.
