Concept and learning are subjected to teachers efficiency/proficiency.
I like the answer. That person is very SMART.
The factors that affect the English proficiency of the filipinos are too much use of vernacular and lack of confidence in using the English language. Too much use of vernacular for the reason that students and even teachers uses their vernacular during class even if the subject is science, math and other subjects whose medium of instruction is in English. First, Teachers tend to use their dialect while teaching that they forget to use english as the medium of instruction because they believe that it would be easy for the students to understand the lesson. Second, students don't have listening and speaking activities inside the classroom especially during English calss. Moreover, students and teachers don't have the needed exposure for language learning. The other reason is the lack of confidence in using the language because filipinos are so conscious about what other people will say if their articulation is not that good. As a result they rather use their dialect/ vernacular when conversing. In general, proper exposure (listening and speaking activities)to English language learning and confidence in using it are the factors that affect the Filipinos proficiency in using the English language.
You don't need a degree however I've taught oversees ESL courses before since I know English and German and they did require that I have a teachers license. I think any company that would hire you would like to know your proficiency with the English language and having your teachers license would be a big plus.
An 'english as a second language' license allows teachers to teach non-english speakers the English language. It is primarily to assist teachers teach English as a second language to those who do not know it.
I live and teach in CA. All schools in the state give students language proficiency testing when they enter school. The students are then identified on a scale from non-english to proficient. The students are then placed in classrooms where the teacher has been trained in language acquisition ( CLAD or SAIDE teachers) and the class everyday gets 30 minutes of language acquisition activities. Depending on the school, some children go to a different classroom, some get individual instruction from a specialized teacher, and some use different textbooks. Yet, when state testing happens ALL students are given the same test in English and not given special help.
