How I used Bilingual Cue Cards to Teach Online ESL

Teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) online can be tricky. Picture this, you are teaching online ESL to a child thousands of miles away in a city in China. You are reaching deep into your teacher toolkit and nothing is working. This child simply does not understand. Never fear, online ESL cue cards are here.

These cue cards are a great form of communication at the beginning or end of your lesson. Imagine spending twenty-five minutes of being taught a language you do not understand but have a little familiarity at the end. You see a goodbye message, in your language.

These cards are ideal if you are teaching independently. Even if you are not teaching independently and working with one of the big guys (VIPKID, Cambly, SayABC, and the like), make sure you understand your companies rules to make sure that these cue cards are permissible. You can find the link to purchase here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Online-ESL-Teaching-Bilingual-Cue-Cards-Chinese-English-Teach-English-Online-3144988

My experience in teaching online ESL has been great. I have unofficially put myself into retirement with VIPKID. I do enjoy teaching independently when the time allows. However, I have a full-time teaching position outside the home (and online world) so my time teaching online is limited. Especially when I include my blog, podcast, and creating on Teachers Pay Teachers.

How has your experience been teaching online ESL? What company do you work with? What have been your pros and cons? Leave a comment below and share how you feel.
