dc.description.abstractA Bilingual teacher can teach English to any non-English speaker, this is actually teaching English as a Second Language or ESL. A bilingual teacher speaks at least two languages and uses the other language in order to be a more effective teacher of English. For example, I am bilingual, I speak Spanish and English, therefore, I can be a bilingual teacher for all Spanish speaking students. I will use Spanish when needed to help me teach my students English or concepts that they do not understand. However, if I had an ESL class, I might have students who speak Thai, for example. In this situation I do not speak Thai so I could not use Thai as a tool to help me teach that student English. Bilingual teachers are trained to teach English to non-English speakers so I am still able to teach the Thai student English, it will merely take a little more patience and understanding.en_US
