Shaping English Language Assessments
with Research + Experience

Preparing Your Students

There are many different pedagogical approaches to teaching English to nonnative English speakers, such as the Direct Method, Communicative Language Teaching, Task-Based Teaching, or Total Physical Response. Using a combination of approaches in your ESL classroom will keep students engaged, and presenting the material in a variety of formats will ensure it’s comprehensible to all types of learners.
