English teachers are much sought after especially after globalization of the Indian economy and with the influx of various multinational companies into India. There is a rising demand for English teachers in all parts of the country as English is the primary medium of communication used between employers and employees especially in major cities. The craze is catching on in smaller towns as well with English coaching classes springing up all over the place and no dearth of students who are keen to learn.
An English teacher needs to have a good understanding of the subtleties and nuances of Grammar, while having a very clear diction and strong vocabulary. Native speakers of the English Language are a preferred choice and so are those who have received their education from convent schools. An English language teacher has to be able to impart his/her knowledge in a very skillful manner while helping non-native speakers overcome their initial hesitation to converse, write and read in English which is viewed as a foreign or second language by non-speakers.
