In the past couple of decades one job that has gained popularity is ESL jobs. English as a global language is accepted by all non- native English speaking countries and the demand for learning English is at its peak now. This has led to the creation of ESL jobs all over the world. Many countries in East Asia and SouthEast Asia are now introducing English as a second language or ESL at the primary level but the regional teachers are not sometimes equipped to teach the language effectively. Though in India English is an official language, it is still the language of the elite few with the vast majority of the population having either a limited or nonexistent vocabulary in English.
Most teachers who teach English in Indian schools are Literature teachers and not much thought is given to the principles and approaches of language teaching. Therefore despite having years of exposure to the language the students reach employable age without any fluency in the language which is now a prerequisite. Therefore the schools are recruiting ESL teachers with a TEFL qualification. It is important for teachers to be aware of what is the difference between natural acquisition and learning and what are the principles involved in teaching the four language skills?
ACT is a multiple award-winning teacher training institution, operating since 2007, offering an array of teacher training courses to meet the demands of aspiring teachers planning to enter the pre and primary teaching, TEFL, Corporate Training, Education Management, Special Education and Counselling domain.
