Problem 1:  Customer Expectations

Companies have customers and customers have power.

In a school the customers are the parents, and in a language centre they are often other companies who are paying the course fees for their employers.  The language companies have to sell a language learning product to their customers.  Unfortunately, the customers think a native speaker is better.

Non native speaker accents

Problem 2:  Accents

Even if your subject knowledge is incredible and your teaching style is outstanding, your accent will be the only thing anyone remembers in an interview.

If you are serious about having a career in teaching English you need to work hard on your accent.

You will no doubt be aware of the common pronunciation mistakes made by people of your nationality when they speak English, so take the time to correct those first.


TEFL Certificates for teaching in Turkey

Problem 3:  Certification

It's really important that you can back up your English level with certification.

Employers will have their doubts, so go ahead and take an internationally recognized English level test like IELTS or TOEFL and put the results in your CV and cover letter.

You can also record a video introduction and add the link or QR code to your CV so that employers can hear you speaking English without having to waste time on an interview.

Important:  I want to point out here that the accuracy of grammar and spelling in your email correspondence with a potential employer is critical.  The way you use English on a day to day basis will be judged, so get it right!

It should go without saying that your actual cover letter and CV should be perfect too.

From the moment you apply as a non-native speaker your language is being assessed.

Problem 4:  Wasting Time

Applying to places that don't actually hire native speakers is a huge waste of time and effort.

Its a common mistake, but how could you know?  Nobody actually says the don't hire non-natives.

But there definitely are lots of places that just will not accept non-native speakers at all, so don’t waste your time contacting them.

You may just have to accept that certain jobs are out of bounds.

If you have been searching for a long time without success, it might be time to reevaluate the kinds of jobs you are going after.
