If you’re already a teacher you’re then qualified to work as a teacher, but if you’re not, you might get surprised anyone can teach a language and you will find people interested to learn from you and I will explain you why here:
At language schools students learn the language as it’s teaches in schools, but many times happens when students face the reality to speak with native people speaking that language they just learned, they can’t speak at all or they don’t understand a word of it.
Many times, the language people speak regularly has been changed a little or a lot from the language in books.
People today, want to learn the basic of a language but they also want to learn how people speak in their regular life.
So, if you want to give it a try to teach your language as an online business you can start it, you just need to look deeper to find your micro niche and learn if you can make money from it.
