[quote=“holmes5668”]I felt fairly sure nobody had taught in those places. I’m reasonably sure it would have been brought to my attention if somebody had.
I put Europe because of the large amount of countries that don’t speak English as a first language.
The question was ‘where have you taught other than Taiwan and your own (country)’ which would have prevented Americans from ticking the U.S. box anyway. I don’t think there are many other native speakers venturing to the U.S. in the hope of starting an ESL career, although I could be wrong.
I thought about putting an ‘other’ box, but forgot.[/quote]
Just as a side note. ESL teaching is very much happening in the USA. In most of the larger cities there a numerous ESL classes for recent and not so recent immgrants. Its big business in the USA; enough so to attract the attention of most state legislation to create quality standards and business ethics laws governing this industry.
Just some info. I am not nor have I ever been an ESL teacher.
