Why I wish I was a Non-Native English Speaker by James Taylor


James Taylor is a British English teacher in Costa Rico. TEFL Equity Advocates is a blog created “to speak out against the discrimination of non-native English speaker teachers (NNESTs) in TEFL/TESL industry.” How many times have we seen schools (even our own) post ads for native English speakers (NESTs) only? How fair is that to those in the ELT profession who are non-native speakers (NNESTs) but excellent teachers? In this post from last year, James writes about just this issue.
