For many years now, Ireland has become a recognised centre for the teaching of English to people from non-English speaking countries. The reasons for this are many and varied but a primary reason is the established quality of the English spoken and taught in Ireland as well as other factors such as the safety and security parents feel in sending their children to this country to learn the language.
Teaching English to foreigners is a growth industry and one that provides exceptional opportunities for graduates of this course to tutor from their homes small groups or even individuals.
