A must have for any qualified English Teacher who is looking to set up their own business either in the UK or abroad.

It starts by teaching you how to get started by advertising yourself and creating a business. It gives guidance on the material and skills that are required in your classes such as needs analysis, classroom management and lesson plans.

In part two, the reader will find valuable information on problems faced by specific nationalities and tips on how to deal with pronunciation.

Part three allows the reader to test themselves on the information they have read and reinforce their understanding of teaching English to international students.
