English is considered a core subject here in the UK, so why is so much emphasis placed on this subject in the country’s curriculum?
In an increasingly competitive job, communication is key and a student’s ability to express themselves through language can set them out from the crowd.
However, students often take the ability to communicate in English for granted because it’s all around us every day.
As an English teacher, it’s your job to get students to take a step back and think analytically about English, and in doing so, help them develop a greater understanding of it.
By teaching English, you’re responsible for helping students develop their voice and skills to use English to develop their ideas creatively and in the correct way.
