Content-based Education
for ESL / EFL and English Language Arts Learners

What in the world is 'content-based education'?!!!

ANSWER:  The idea of 'content-based education' is that students

 can learn a second (or foreign) language by studying (or learning) subjects (or topics) of interest in the target language,

such as the ones below.

[And this is perhaps the BEST way to learn a foreign language, because the student doesn't know he/she is learning!]

Students:

Choose a topic that interests you and go have fun learning!
