Career Video on Teaching English

In a video, Sunaina Sangal has talked about various aspects of a Career in Teaching English. Sunaina Sangal started by explaining Teaching English as: “Teaching English as a Foreign Language refers to teaching the English language to students with different first languages.” I watched the full video and I absolutely loved it.

  • Exposure to Different Talents

And, Sunaina Sangal believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Teaching English:

  • Lack of Awareness
  • Technology is a Boon and a Bane
