    Lack of a common language can be a huge barrier, but if your student has faith in his or her ESL skills, then they will always be at an advantage over another student who doesn’t try. That confidence comes from knowing that a teacher prepared them for regular situations, so there is no fear of social embarrassment. As an ESL teacher, it may be your job to ensure that your students learn all of the proper tenses and vocabulary lessons for their learning level. But mixing formal lessons with lessons on how to use ESL skills to make new friends, negotiate a deal, and even defuse an awkward situation will help your students remember what they’re learning. Opportunities to use their skills right now will give them opportunities to practice what they learn in ESL and engrain more formal vocabulary, pronunciation and other skills at the same time.
