All around the world, people communicate in the common, international language of English - you could say that English helps to make the world go round! In developing countries, the middle classes and wealthy citizens usually have excellent English but poor people often have very poor or no English.

As English is often essential for work and business opportunities, those without English language skills are being left ever further behind. On a wider level, English language skills are essential for developing countries to move forward in an increasingly globalised world.

You donít have to be a qualified teacher to pass on your valuable spoken English skills in many volunteering contexts. You are already a living language teaching resource! The Schoolhouse training course will unlock your natural potential as a language teacher.

Of course, if you are an experienced or newly qualified teacher, there are many opportunities for teaching in more formal situations and if youíre considering a career in teaching, you can gain valuable classroom expereince.
