QUALIFIED WITH NATIVE-SPEAKER COMPETENCE
Q.
I am a Bulgarian presently working and living in the UK with my English husband. My English is at a level of a native speaker, I have a BA degree from an American University. I have a City&Guilds Initial Certificate in ESOL and I have been teaching ESOL to adults two hours a week for 10 months now. I really want to get into teaching ESOL full time(either in Britain or abroad), but it seems the fact that I am foreign outweighs the fact that my English is good enough to teach it What do you think is the best way to make foreign ESOL teacher's skills more 'marketable'?

A.
Some employers, particularly private language schools, prefer native-speaker teachers because they believe that that is the preference of their client student population. However, there are other options. First of all you might wish to consider applying to the State sector. Secondly there are charity organisations which offer language instruction to immigrant populations. In order to maximise your strengths, you could consider teaching your own countrymen and women in the UK. Your embassy or consulate may be able to help put you in touch with likely sources. Good luck!
