What is the difference between bilingual and ESL?
In an ESL classroom, students who speak many different languages are all taught by the same teacher. The teacher only speaks English and is not required to speak the native language of any members of the class. All teaching is done in English.
In a bilingual education classroom, all the students in the class speak the same language. The teacher also speaks the language. The way that a bilingual education class generally works is that the teacher teaches in both English and the students' native language, eventually switching over to teaching only in English.
