ESL or English as Second language

English as a Second Language is called ESL. The use or study of the English language by non-native speakers in an English-speaking context is known as ESL (also known as English for other languages.) That setting could be a country where English is the native language (e.g., Australia, the United States) or English plays a significant role (e.g., India, Nigeria). For people who speak other languages, it is also known as English.

English as a Second Language also refers to specific language training methods for people who do not speak English as their first language.

Consider the following would be some benefits of learning English as a second language:

  1. English is the most widely used language. In 2010, there were over 536 million English-speaking users on the internet. In English, there are almost 5.5 billion websites.
  2. Around 66% of the world’s scientists and researchers speak English.
  3. Around 25% of the world’s population speaks English at the basic-intermediate level.
  4. Some professions will not allow you to work unless you are fluent in English. Air traffic controllers, diplomats, and various employers in the computing or information technology business are among these vocations.
  5. If you wish to live and work in an English-speaking country, immigration officials will want you to have a certificate demonstrating your English language proficiency.

To summarize, we live in a globalized society where only proficient English speakers have the best prospects for personal and professional advancement.
