When it comes to finding ESL schools in the United States and around the world, there are a few important things to look for. For one thing, you want to find a school or academic program that offers small class sizes. This is a great way to ensure that you receive the kind of personal attention you need to learn a new language. It's a good idea to aim for class sizes somewhere between ten and fifteen students. You can expect larger class sizes in public schools and adult education courses in your community.
Another thing to look for in and ESL education program is native English speaking teachers. Many people take ESL classes in order to improve their communication skills in international relations and trade. One of the main goals of adult education around the world is learning how to speak conversational English. Rather than emphasizing the rules of punctuation and grammar, the right course will provide you with the skills you need to adapt to social situations and conduct effective business transactions in English. If you're planning on teaching at an ESL school, it's important to find out as much information as possible about your living conditions. Many schools provide teachers and students with year-round housing. In addition, you need to find out what kind of salary and other living stipends will be provided. It's also a good idea to get a general idea of the cost of living in the region where your school is located.
If you plan on living in student or teacher housing, it's important to find out what kind of transportation is available to you as well. One of the reasons people cite for teaching English abroad is the desire to explore new lands. If this is one of the reasons you want to teach overseas, it's important to know how to get around on your days off.
