Bilingual and Multilingual Teacher Education

Individuals who dream of teaching non-English speakers can become bilingual or multilingual teachers. Bilingual teachers provide instruction in basic academic subjects in their students' native language. Read on for more information.

Inside Bilingual and Multilingual Teacher Education

According to the National Teacher Education Center (www.teach.us), bilingual teachers work with English language learners (ELL) in a combination of English and their native language to teach them math, science, reading, history and other subjects. Individuals working with ELLs should be aware of their pupils' cultural backgrounds and differences and be able to motivate them. English as a second language (ESL) teachers are responsible for helping their pupils acquire English, but they don't work with students in their native language. Although distinctions exist between bilingual teachers and ESL teachers, some career responsibilities overlap.

Education Information

Bachelor's and master's degree programs are available in bilingual and multilingual education. Prospective educators prepare by taking classes in foreign language, language learning and acquisition, literacy development, bilingual teaching methods and curriculum development. They explore methods of language acquisition, their advantages and disadvantages, practical methods for implementing them in a classroom environment and ways to improve pronunciation and build vocabulary in the target language.
