English as a second language (ESL) teachers instruct students whose first language isn’t English, in reading, writing and conversing effectively. These professionals are also sometimes called English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) teachers. These teachers approach English skills from a real-life perspective, often focusing on conversational and job-related communication skills.
If you would like to become an ESL teacher, a Bachelor’s degree and an appropriate teaching certificate is required. You will be able to help students function in an environment built upon the English language; you will be given a lot of experience working in a variety of cities to introduce students to English. Having patience, while working with students who may become frustrated when trying to learn how to use the English language, is a must on many levels with helping them to practice writing, reading or speaking. Active approach and energy can be good helpers as well. We will make sure that you will be satisfied and well-prepared for your teaching experience.
