Re: Are there any teaching jobs for non-native speakers?

I used to work on the 5 minute principal! Children get...

Re: Teaching ESL to a very active child

I agree with the above suggestion. Try to find something he likes and use that as much as possible in class. Maybe his favorite TV show, cartoon, football player or whatever!

Re: do the English learn English?

When I was at school, I did a double English G.C.S.E. Which included both English Language and English Literature.

Re: Frustrated Adult Student
