At present, many kindergartens and children's English training institutions employ foreign teachers. Foreign teachers have a positive impact on children's English learning. What are the common problems in the recruitment of foreign teachers?
1、 On the short contract period of foreign teachers
Because the contract for foreign teachers is usually signed once a year, the students have just become familiar with the foreign teachers, and the foreign teachers have a tacit understanding in all aspects of teaching. At this time, the one-year contract for foreign teachers has expired, and the school is going to recruit new foreign teachers. So every year when the school recruits foreign teachers, it is always sad. Although there are many foreign teachers, it is rare that they meet the requirements of the school and want to come to the school by themselves. In such a vicious circle, it often affects the smooth progress of the whole teaching plan because we can't recruit foreign teachers.
2、 Foreign teachers are not from native speaking countries
In many small and medium-sized cities, it is difficult to recruit qualified native language foreign teachers. After the school published the recruitment information on the recruitment website for foreign teachers, either no one responded, or a large number of African brothers and sisters came to interview. Sometimes, with good luck, when they met a native language country, they were either older or their education did not meet the requirements. If there is no special channel, it is difficult to find qualified native language foreign teachers.
3、 Foreign teachers' lack of teaching experience
There are many foreign teachers who come to China to teach. Many foreign teachers have no teaching experience before they come to China. They also need Chinese teachers to teach them how to teach. Not only that, many foreign teachers have poor self-care ability, and some things need to be solved by the school. Once such foreign teachers are recruited, it's really a headache for the organization.
4、 There are too many problems in the emergencies of foreign teachers
Because of the differences in education, culture and life, some foreign teachers are not as good as we think. In many kindergartens and children's English training institutions, we know that some foreign teachers suddenly leave because of some small things, and even some foreign teachers don't leave. In this way, we can't find a substitute for them, which seriously affects the teaching progress.
5、 High cost of foreign teachers
At present, the salary of foreign teachers is generally about 3-5 times of that of domestic educators. Not only that, schools have to provide food and accommodation for foreign teachers, but also deal with some trivial matters such as work visa, as well as the costs of recruiting foreign teachers, intermediary costs and so on. Schools have to bear more expenses, because the price is high, many schools can not afford it.
6、 The problem of foreign teachers' inaccurate pronunciation
In the eyes of many people, the pronunciation of foreign teachers must be very standard. In fact, it is not. Just like in China, every place has its own dialect, and foreign teachers are no exception. Therefore, the pronunciation of foreign teachers is also very different. If foreign teachers teach English with an accent, it will only make the children's oral English ability appear greater deviation.
