Hire Freelance English Teachers and be Language Confident

If there is one language that can be designated as being the global language, it has to be English. With more than 1.75 billion people or 25% of the global population speaking English, it is termed as the modern Lingua Franca. Moreover, this number is set to grow, and by 2022, British Council estimates that more than 2 billion people will be communicating in English. Most multinational corporations have designated English as the corporate language of choice. English is now being seen as an essential skill rather than an optional language. More and more people are now learning English; latest estimates put the number of ESL Schools (English as Second Language) globally at 40,000+. As a result, more than 100,000+ new English language teaching positions are opening every year.

Need for Expert English Teachers

The number of English language learners in China has been estimated at 300 million, which is, in fact, more than the number of native English speakers in the USA. This single statistic alone emphasises the need for good English teachers for hire. English language teaching is undergoing rapid transformation due to the influx of technology. The rapid increase in the number of smartphone users, in non-native English speaking countries, is opening up new opportunities for freelance English teachers. As per a report, the annual revenue of digital English language learning products is expected to reach $3.8 billion by 2020 registering an annual growth rate of 6%. 

More and more students are looking to learn English through digital mediums, and the opportunities for English language experts are on the rise. As the internet has broken the barriers of location, freelance English teachers can now teach their students anywhere. Also, latest trends reveal that while school kids like to use mobile apps to learn English, adults prefer online tutoring. As per a report by Ambient Insight, the online tutoring market is witnessing tremendous growth and has already surpassed the annual revenue of US $103 billion. The trend is expected to continue in the future as well.
