I am certified to teach English as a second language by Oxford Seminars. I also have a Bachelor of Business Administration with a minor in English. Today, I begin teaching ESL on Steemit and discord with my first lesson.

Learning ESL (English as a Second Language) is useful for people that have been learning English, but could benefit from learning and speaking with a native English speaker to gain a larger vocabulary and improve grammar and conversational skills.

I speak some German and Spanish but I am not proficient in either. But that is ok. These posts will serve as a basic grammar course in English. This will also be an opportunity for me to improve my German and Spanish and to learn more languages as I am always a student of linguistics.

Lesson 1) Introducing yourself

Today we will do a basic introduction.

Me: Hi, My name is Richard.
How are you?

Mary: Hello Richard, my name is Mary.
I am fine, thanks. How are you?

Me: I am doing well. Thanks for asking
Where are you from?

Mary: I am from Guadalajara, Mexico
I am a medical student.
How about yourself?

Me: I manage a family owned business and I am from Texas.
Where are you studying?

Mary: I am studying at the University of Texas in Austin...

Thanks @oldtimer! I hope so, too! I have enjoyed volunteering as an ESL teacher, but have not had the chance to teach in a while, but today I realized that there is an opportunity here!
