Teaching English as a Second Language
The English language is one of the most widely used dialects in the developed world. It is spoken natively and more countries than any other language, aside from Spanish and Chinese. Businesses throughout the developed world use it as a standard language to conduct commerce, even between two companies of non-English-speaking origin. As a result, there is a perpetual demand for access to an English language course.
Those capable of speaking English, either natively or as a foreign language stand greater employment opportunities in just about any nation on this planet. The demand for those capable of speaking this complex, homogenized language has never waned, and will only increase in the future.
However, in order for a competent English language course to exist, there must be a competent English language teacher. As a result, the demand for those capable of teaching English as a foreign language is as great, if not greater than the demand for those who can speak the language and practical application.
English as a foreign language is very difficult to teach, those who natively speak this language are often unaware of just how contradictory and abstract the language can be. Those who have learned other languages in the past may find it difficult to believe that English would be any more difficult than such languages as Chinese, Russian, or other infamously difficult languages. However, what many people do not seem to realize is that English did not evolve in a single area with a single culture to influence it.
English is the result of multiple cultures spreading over vast distances and incorporating other languages and cultural influences along the way. Different dialects of English, following this, also began to develop in their own unique ways, until the information age. In the modern era, there is a vast, homogenized version of English which has many contradictory rules and strange roots that can be traced throughout many locations in history, from Rome and Greece to Spain, France, and any other culture that has had contact with lands that speak English.
The challenge of teaching English as a second language should not taunt anybody who has a love for language, teaching, and people. It is far from impossible to effectively teach this language, it merely depends on receiving the proper training and certification, and how to accomplish it.
