How ESL Teaching benefits students?
By:Mistina Thomson

"For long, ever since I heard of the concept of ESL Teaching, I was wondering if it gave any benefits to the students at all. After doing my research on ESL Teaching, I confirmed that ESL Job did give a lot of benefits to the teachers. But more importantly, it also provided a range of benefits for the students as well. I thought, I will do some more research on this aspect and find out more on the benefits to the students as well.

What are the benefits of ESL Teaching to students?

Firstly, students get trained in English from qualified professionals who apply for an ESL Job. Essentially, any teacher who does an ESL Job is qualified and certified to teach English. The ESL Certification to ESL Job applicants goes a long way in teachers imparting quality English education to students.

Secondly, students get to learn a new language called English. In most countries like China, Japan English has never been a focal point of education. In fact, to tell you the truth it has been neglected for ages. With the world opening its doors to these countries, these countries have realized that they need to open their doors to them too. One way of doing that is cutting all barriers of communication. Obviously, to keep pace and to understand what people from the West say, you would need to learn English.

Thirdly, students become globally competent. It is needless to say that these countries are blessed with natural resources in abundance. One way of harnessing these natural resources is to tap them locally. The second and perhaps the more prudent way is for students to gain expertise in English. Their skills aside, their knowledge of English will enable to apply for exciting job opportunities overseas.

Macro-economically, ESL Teaching benefits students too

Speaking of ground level benefits, it is needless to say that the students of ESL Teaching stand benefited. Macro-economically too, it makes a lot of sense for ESL Teaching to a country. For example, English Teaching Jobs in China have been on the rise at the rate of 20% every year for the last two years. At this rate assuming that close to 90% of the positions are filled, we are talking of 1000 new English Jobs in China to be created in the next 10 years.

Talking too far, an ESL student could end up applying for an ESL Job. It would be a far-sighted scenario, but if the student is skilled enough to teach English, he could be a frontrunner for English Jobs in China.

All in all, ESL Teaching has proven to be beneficial to students. That, the number of students enrolling in ESL Teaching has seen a dramatic rise over the past couple of years goes to show the increase in popularity of ESL."
