    ESL vs. ELL

    ESL is actually different than ELL.

    ESL is English as a Second Language -- this refers to people who speak another language primarily and English is their 2nd language.

    ELL is English Language Learners. This term can refer to any child who struggles with the basics of the English language, has a low vocabulary, etc. They might only speak English, and many times come from homes where there isn't much stimulation for them as young children, but they are English-only speakers. They just are still learning things about the language.
