Entrepreneurship can be a viable option for English language learners seeking successful employment. However, to succeed they need knowledge about legal and business issues as well as language, digital-literacy, and intercultural skills. This three-part workshop will guide you in developing lessons that integrate all key elements.

This professional development activity/course is designed for:

– ESOL teachers interested in helping English language learners explore the possibility of self-employment while developing their language skills

Many immigrants would rather work for themselves than be someone else’s employee. Some may have owned a business in their home country. But self-employment for English language learners involves many considerations: language skills, cultural awareness, ease using computers, and knowledge of basic business and legal issues.

This workshop will help you develop a thematic unit on entrepreneurship that integrates all these factors. You will have opportunities to try out new teaching tools and techniques in your practice while receiving professional-development support. [click for event details…]
