The English language teaching field is becoming more and more specialized and therefore, as teachers, we need to become capable of teaching different types of classes.

The students share with us their goals for learning English, as well as what they enjoy and what they find challenging about the learning process. The teachers describe some of the rewards and challenges of teaching their particular type of specialized ESL class and impart some advice for teachers who are new to teaching that type of class.
