I know that teaching ESL is for students of any native language but I live in NY where there is a very high and growing spanish speaking population. Right now I'm taking classes to get esl certification and I feel like it's probably my only real hope of getting a job where I live. The problem is, I can't speak Spanish. I took it for years in hs and my first year of college but that was years ago and I forgot most of it. I'm trying to refresh my Spanish but I know I'll never be able to speak it fluently. Once I refresh myself more, I'll be able to say some basic things (open your books, hand in your homework, etc) but will still not be able to speak it well. What level of proficiency will be required to get a job? Also, do school districts test your proficiency or look at CLEP exam scores?
