Working conditions in ELT

LOGO FINALIn this episode of The TEFL Show podcasts we discuss working conditions in the ELT industry. While there are certainly some regions where the pay and conditions are very good, it seems to us that in many countries teachers in language schools are not only severely underpaid, but may also lack basic insurance or sick pay. We discuss why this is the case and suggest several ways to overcome this situation.

What are the working conditions like in your language school? What could be done to improve them? We’d love to hear from you, so please leave us a comment below.
