What started out to be an idea to help people who were worried about losing their jobs in the car industry, has turned into a solution for some to create their own job. ESL Expert David Redman offers free weekly webinars on how to teach English online and earn money from their home.
"When most people think about how to teach English online they consider it work for people with graduate degrees to teach college courses, but there's lots of work for people without graduate degrees to teach online", says Redman, "including hobbies, skills and teaching English."
Redman's webinars on how to teach English online cover the basics of how to get started and the most important technique online teachers need to use to find students. "Even seasoned teachers are often unsure about how to teach English online" relates Redman "these webinars to help them get started".
The Online English teaching business is a huge industry. There are over 800,000,000 million people studying English right now and that number is growing. English is the 'lingua franca'; the language of communication between people with two different languages. When the Japanese are doing business with the Chinese, most often their common language is English. It's the same case when the French are doing business with the Koreans; most likely they will use English.
Even in today's economy, people are signing up for online English classes. On E-talk, a pod cast interview show, , Illeana Borbon, an online English teacher from Costa Rica, said she is actually "getting more students now" because non-native English speakers know they "need English to get a job or get a promotion at work."
Online teaching and learning has entered the mainstream consumer consciousness with the convenience of working and learning from home, but what most people may not realize is that they have the potential to be part of the industry. Native English speakers can earn money teaching at their computer, with a head set and mike and a video chat program like Skype. The technology is cheap and easy to set up and the how to teach English online webinars help show people how to get started.
