Default Problems experienced when teaching ESL in other countries.

I wonder whether any of you out there can help me. I'm doing a ESL course specializing in teaching young learners. I have to to write about unique problems when teaching in the following countries:
China, South Korea, VietNam Kuwait, Thailand, Bulgaria.
I would apreciate a couple of minutes of your time and thank you in advance.

I think you'd be much better off looking to research articles. Just search "Problem teaching ESL in China + young learners"

You could aslo try Google Scholar for research articles

I expect you spotted the deliberate spelling mistake. Just testing...

Try these sites. They're not specifically about young learners, but will cover the general problems faced by the different nationality groups :

Frankfurt International School
Learner English
Problems faced by Chinese Learners ...

I'm really sorry but I couldn't find any information, that I was happy with, to help me with this part of the course. To be honest, I didn't complete this course. I completed the main TEFL course but when I read the Young Learners one through, I decided that the content wasn't what I wanted. I already work with young learners privately and in a primary school.

Good question. Where would you find concise, accurate, and accessible information? Too many of the academic journal articles, from my perspective, remain cluttered and littered with jargon and hedging language.

I'd like to find a snappy, informative article of 1000-1500 words. Ideas?
