The number of TEFL teachers of young learners is ever increasing as children start to learn English at a younger age around the world.
The number of TEFL teachers of young learners is ever increasing as children start to learn English at a younger age around the world. The term “young learners” can be used to describe pre-school, primary school, secondary school, or teenage learners. Many teachers who we have trained decided to teach English in Asia. The biggest market in teaching young learners is here. It is a TEFL job market where English teachers get very well compensated compared to other parts of our world. Parents on this continent understand that the key to a successful career after school lies in being able to speak English. Why? Over time, our world has become more and more globalized whether it is in business, education, or other fields. We may not speak each other’s language; however, we both have learned English at school and can, therefore, communicate with each other.
