Hot Topic: Teaching English to Executives and Business Professionals

If you're lucky to land a job teaching business executives then you're golden because the pay is usually very good. They can usually be divided into two groups: those who can speak fluently and those who know very little English, but are being forced to learn.

If you teach the first group, then things are pretty easy, since you don't have to teach them English, but rather help them perfect it. If you teach the second group, then things can be challenging since they're stressed enough with work and now have to learn English, but rarely study.

If they speak English well, you'll probably end up conversing in English about their job, looking over their emails, or helping with reports. If they don't speak English well, they tend to not come to class and if they cancel at the last minute, you're usually paid.

What do you think?
Have you taught business professionals? What was your experience?
