Teaching English is a rewarding career choice for millions of people all over the world. These days, many countries have instituted a policy of bilingual education. In most cases this means learning the basics of both the native tongue and the English language. When you consider how important international relations and international trade have become in this world, it just makes sense to teach English to students all over the world.
Traditional English instruction involves a number of different elements. In the early grades we learn the basics of the language. We learn the alphabet, and we begin to learn a core vocabulary that we will use for the rest of our lives. This initial education is crucial to reading and speaking the language, and is essential for the development of communication skills. Many of us think back on our English teachers and we think of the people who gave us vocabulary quizzes and essay assignments. When we think of English teachers, we also think of the people who first introduced us to the classics of literature. These people taught us how to express ourselves, and they exposed us to whole new worlds in the pages of great books.
Teaching English requires a passion for the language, and a desire to make a difference in the lives of students of all ages. English teachers are some of the most patient and compassionate people you will ever meet. If you're thinking about teaching English, you have a number of things to consider. Not only do you need to determine the age group of students you wish to teach, but you also need to consider areas of specialization such as grammar, literature, and even English as a second language.
