Why Take ESOL?

Monday, May 22, 2023

If English is not your first language, or you know someone whose first language is not English, and it’s becoming harder and harder to communicate for daily tasks, you may consider taking an ESOL course. 

ESOL stands for “English for Speakers of Other Languages,” and it has proven to be a very popular course. ESOL courses can be more than just a class for some individuals because they can improve the quality of their lives. It also helps individuals be able to communicate effectively to carry out everyday tasks. 

When it comes to learning English as a non-native speaker, you may be surprised by the number of available course types and terms used. You have probably heard of ESL (English as a Second Language) or ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages), but throw in EFL, ELL, and ESP, and there are a lot of potential options.

Orlando, Florida, is synonymous with diversity. Our area is probably best known as the home of Walt Disney World. 

Tens of millions of people visit our area to ride the rides and meet their favorite characters. Many of those people are from somewhere other than the United States. Per the Orlando Sentinel:

“International tourists make up a bigger piece of the pie at Disney World, where they typically comprise between 18 percent and 22 percent of total attendance.”

Orlando has become home to many from around the world. With many attractions like Walt Disney World, the Weather, Education, Cost of Living, and Health care, Orlando has a large diversity of people from many different backgrounds from many different countries.

Having a place like Pluris Academy can help those expanding their language horizons learn English. Learning English while living in the United States can be very beneficial since it is the national language, and many other people have learned it as a second language who are not from the United States.
