I’ve recently analyzed data from the placement test results of hundreds of ESL students from each corner of the planet. In doing so, I’ve noticed a noteworthy trend: almost every student who sits our placement test possesses a significant amount of ingrained or ‘fossilized’ errors. Why is this happening, and what can we do to help?
Most teachers who jump into online ESL teaching do so with the dream of eventually moving into the role on a full-time basis. We all dream of quitting our day jobs and working from home! Our own hours, our own students, no more staff meetings, just teaching… Sounds great doesn’t it? But there’s a catch! To become a full-time online ESL teacher, you’re going to need a lot of students.
