Integrated Skills in the ESL/EFL Classroom Resources Online Resources: Digests September 2001 EDO-FL-01-05 Integrated Skills in the ESL/EFL Classroom Rebecca Oxford, University of Maryland One image for teaching English as a second or foreign language (ESL/EFL) is that of a tapestry. In addition to the four strands mentioned above—teacher, learner, setting, and relevant languages—other important strands exist in the tapestry.
