Does anyone know if Waldorf education teaches ESL? Is it even a part of the curriculum?

I don't know, but it would be really cool to integrate that philosophy and ESL. Have you found any information yet?

Yes, it certainly would be cool to think if ESL can be integrated but based on what I have been hearing and reading Waldorf method encourages a broad curriculum. Teachers are encouraged to explore new topics and allow themselves to be guided by the exploration of the students. This type of teaching encourages learning for the sake of learning, instead of for the sake of passing an exam or scoring well on grading rubrics.
