    It could be very hard to teach English in schools of non-native speakers.
    Well, that's the point there right?
    It is hard to teach English because the students are not using the language. That's a great challenge for you dude. Wish you luck.
    You know what? I am Korean. At first, It was really hard to adapt to the language, which is English. My English teacher was a Filipino. And she spoke like a Native English speaker. There were times that I know that she's tired physically and mentally. But she said one day, during the discussion, "I will never get tired of teaching you guys! So, please be cooperative." I liked her style. Maybe that's why my English is much better now than before.
    Well, I was just sharing my experiences. Learning English could be just a piece of cake if the learner is willing to do anything. "No pain, no gain."

    Thank you for reading.....

    Start with the basics dude.
    Like my English teacher did.
    Common greetings and expressions, and you must know a little about their native language.

    A lot depends on the curriculum that you have to follow. Is it a traditional or a modern one?
