‘A few weeks ago, eCollegeFinder, an established online education resource, teamed up with Language Magazine to celebrate insightful ESL blogs, written especially for those teaching or learning English as a second language, and those earning a TESOL degree. Their aim at presenting this award was to provide a reference for student readers who aim to broaden their learning and teaching experiences. Read more about the award here.’
My blog was also nominated for Top ESL Blogs Award. The nomination and voting processes were extremely fair and successful. I wholeheartedly congratulate both eCollegeFinder and Language Magazine on this!
‘Upon the closing of Top ESL Blogs Award Competition, they published a paper outlining the issue of whether ESL students should be educated through English immersion or bilingual education.’
Here you can read dear Brittany Behrman’s own words. Thank you Brittany for your amazing post
Which ESL teaching method do you support: Bilingual Education or English Immersion? In the United States, each state, teacher, parent, and student has an individual view on how we should educate English Language Learners (ELLs) in our schools. In order to help readers form their own opinions, the eCollegeFinder blog investigated what the two ESL programs entail and the benefits and shortcomings of each.
