English as a Second Language (ESL) refers to the teaching of English to foreign speakers. Foreign speakers are those living in countries with low English proficiency rates. Languages commonly taught in ESL programs include American, British, Indian, Australian and Canadian English. Teachers of English as a Second Language (TESL) normally work with children and adults learning English. Working as an English language teacher requires a college degree in English language and teaching experience.
Most people with degrees in English language do not have a degree in speaking or writing. In fact, many teachers with degrees in TESL have at least some prior experience teaching English. However, there are many ways to become an English teacher without majoring in the subject. Anyone can become an English teacher with a little dedication and patience. Here are some helpful tips for succeeding in the ESL job market:
Since many companies are seeking English speakers, job seekers can find work worldwide. Many countries have excellent educational standards and encourage their citizens to speak English. These include the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. Other countries with good educational standards and opportunities for ESL teachers include Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan. Employers seek out experienced ESL teachers since they can fill high-quality job orders quickly and efficiently.
It takes time and dedication for a ESL professional to build a career. Many people think that becoming an English teacher is easy since most colleges offer degrees in English language. This is not entirely true; some colleges offer degrees in TESLL which focus on teaching through technology or business strategies. Other degrees focus on specific aspects of instruction such as pedagogy or curriculum design. Earning a degree in TESLL demonstrates dedication since these courses are difficult to find at accredited institutions.
