I have been an ESL trainer for more than three years and I have to say that it has been quite interesting. My learners are from varied professions in the corporate world and the fact that I get to talk to them is a real privilege. The job has its challenges but I have learned to look at them more as opportunities. You get to know more about their culture and you develop ways to deal with certain language issues. Making lesson plans isn't part of the job description since certain systems are already in place to enable me to give structured lessons. If there is one thing that I picked up from the course, it's paying a greater attention to detail. I have learned so much in the past few months since I started and I appreciate everything even the times when I was at wit's end about the whole thing. It truly was an adventure for me and one that I will always remember. I used to work as a voice, accent and soft skills coach and my supervisor back then was an english major. Back then, I didn't think much of it. Later on, I came to realize that knowledge is indeed a good thing but more knowledge is even much better. I am not suggesting that one has to have a degree. There are many options to learn more. You just have to have some street smarts. Planning is one thing. Execution is another. They should work hand in hand. To sum it all up, knowledge is nothing without the skills and all those units of the course have been invaluable in that these have enhanced my capabilities as a trainer. Sometimes, you can't avoid sounding and feeling a little mechanical but knowing what I know now, I am more focused, more patient and more creative. As mentioned earlier, I have been in the industry for more than three years. I'd like to say that I am now more well-equipped to face bigger challenges in my career.
