It is important to note that ESL (English as a Second Language) education programs are not the same as bilingual education programs. The two are closely connected, but the typical ESL teacher speaks only English and his/her class is most often made up of students of various language backgrounds. On the other hand, as the name suggests, the bilingual education teacher speaks both English and the single native language of all of the students in his or her classroom. The ESL teacher teaches English, and only English. The bilingual education teacher teaches a broad elementary or secondary school curriculum.
