After applying for a few ESOL positions a few days back, I contacted the schools today just to emphasis my interest and to see if there was anything else they needed from me aside from my resume and status of eligibility paperwork. While on the phone with the vice principle from one of the schools, I was asked what languages I spoke, to which I replied "Only English fluently, but I have some knowledge of Farsi, German, and Thai." To which she replied, "You do know this position is with a bunch of foreign speaking kids, right?" I told her "Yes" and that my Bachelor's degree is in ESOL. She asked if I was teaching now and I told her I wasn't, but that I was a M.Ed student. She then asked me to send her my resume and gave me her email address. Doesn't look promising. :lol: Why is there this misperception that and ESOL teacher must speak the native languages of all the ESOL students they teach? Am I expected to give the same lesson plan 5 different times in 5 different languages so the students in the class who have a collective 5 different native tongues all comprehend the material?
