The many acronyms used in the field of English teaching and learning may be
confusing. English is a language with great reach and influence; it is taught
all over the world under many different circumstances. In English-speaking
countries, English language teaching has essentially evolved in two broad
directions: instruction for people who intend to live in an English-speaking
country and for those who don't. These divisions have grown firmer as the
instructors of these two "industries" have used different terminology, followed
distinct training qualifications, formed separate professional associations, and
so on. Crucially, these two arms have very different funding structures, public
in the former and private in the latter, and to some extent this influences the
way schools are established and classes are held. Source:
Wikipedia English as a foreign or second language
Socialization is a term used by sociologists, social psychologists, anthropologists, politicians and educationalists to refer to the process of inheriting norms, customs and ideologies. It may provide the individual with the skills and habits necessary for participating within their own society; a society itself is formed through a plurality of shared norms, customs, values, traditions, social roles, symbols and languages. Socialization is thus ‘the means by which social and cultural continuity are attained’. Source:
