Course Overview

English as a Second Language (ESL) is a traditional term for the use or study of the English dialect by non-native speakers in an English-talking surrounding. Those surroundings can be a country in which English is a native language or one in which English has an accepted role. English as a Second Language further refers to dialect education designed for those whose dominant language is not English.

It is also known as English for speakers of different languages. A contributor to the Harvard Business Review, Tsedal Neeley, noted that “English is now the global language of business.” Many global firms are now requiring their employees to know English to standardize communication between departments and improve efficiency.

Speaking English allows some businesses to extend their global reach. Additionally, company offices in diversified parts of the world can easily correspond with each other for all business activities.
