Richard is an extremely successful ESL teacher and published author who has paid his dues teaching English overseas and truly knows his "Stuff!"

If you are thinking about English teaching you may be wondering "how the heck do I get started as an ESL teacher?" Well, you might fall into one of two categories:
The first is: "Hey! I can do that! I speak the language. English teaching is for me."
The second is: "Geez, English was my worst subject in school. How the heck can I teach something I was horrible at in school."
If English is your first language (or maybe it's not and you're just a wiz at it) and you have a desire to do something different, to help people, meet a lot of great folks from all over the world, to travel and work abroad teaching English as a Second Language just might be your cup of tea.
One thing that's important though--you really gotta like people. I think that is the one real important qualification to being an ESL teacher or really any kind of teacher.
