The GACE English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Test is one that more and more aspiring Georgia teachers will face as immigration continues to change the face of America. The test is designed to measure a person's ability to teach English to kids for whom it is not their first language.
It is actually made up of two separate tests. The first test concentrates on the theoretical, making sure the teacher has grasped the principles of ESOL. The second test focuses on the practical, testing for a person's ability to actually teach ESOL and do it effectively. The test employs both multiple-choice and written-answer formats. It is scored on a scale of 100 to 300, and the minimum passing score is 220. Both exams must be completed within four hours.
