    Question 'skill' and 'expertise'?

    Hi,

    Could anyone please tell me what differences the two words have when, say, one's talking about teachers?





    Many thanks in advance.

    Re: 'skill' and 'expertise'?

    Hi there,

    I'm not a teacher :)

    "skill" - is your ability, power or coordination of doing certain things by using your knowledge and experience - physically or mentally. For example: Being a teacher requires a lot of skill.

    "expertise" - is an opinion/judgement/assessment given by an expert. For example: She can provide you with a legal expertise (meaning, she can present her professional opinion on legal matters).

    Hope it helped,

    Inna.
