Language is the spoken method people use to communicate between themselves. There are thousands of human languages that are spoken around the world and the study of language theory is known as linguistics. Languages comprise vocabulary, which are the words used and also grammar and syntax, which are the rules governing how sentences and other grammatical structures are constructed. Some dead languages can only be found and studied in their written forms in our days, while most of the languages are spoken. Online courses in language can teach a specific one, such as Chinese or French. Also you can improve your knowledge in English language. Online courses are a great way in many ways to learn the grammar and vocabulary of a language, though to become fluent in it you will need to practice that language with a native speaker. Furthermore you can spend a semester abroad at a foreign university. You can take online courses in language in language education in case you are already fluent in a language and would like to teach it. You can also teach English as a second language to students either at home or in many countries around the world.

Online courses in language

ESL online courses in language are good because they train you both in English syntax and grammar as well as teaching methods specific for either children or adults and prepare you to take ESL exams such as the TESOL or the Cambridge ESOL. By taking online courses in language you can learn the rules of grammar of that language, its common vocabulary and spelling and pronunciation, while those in ESL focus on language teaching methods. Students that take such kind of courses will be able to answer questions like what is the essential vocabulary I need to teach non-native English speakers or what are the differences between English and the language I am studying. They will also be able to answer of question such as what are the required courses I have to take before receiving and ESL teaching certificate and what are the grammatical cases the language I am learning utilizes and what are the common exceptions. Another possible question that students may know the answer after taking these courses is what are the non-verbal methods of communication a speaker of the language I am studying  would use and how they differ from American methods. Above all you probably want to make sure the college or university you are interested in offers courses in the language you want to study or relevant education courses that can give you the preparation to take a certificate exam if you plan on teaching in that language, when considering online courses in language. You also need to ensure that the ESL program you are considering is accredited by the Commission on English Language Accreditation in case you would like to pursue a P.h.D in language afterwards.
