I'm an ESL tutor now!

I just got employed as an ESL tutor to help teach native Russian speakers English. :)

And where did I start out from?

I started out on DuoLingo!

My conversational abilities really have skyrocketed since I started learning Russian over 6 months ago. I'm able to hold phone calls and conversations in Russian for hoursss, as well as text in Russian for an indefinite amount of time. I know a lot of words, and I have few difficulties being able to retrieve them from my brain. :)

My abilities in Russian have slowly, but surely, becoming very natural to me. Almost as natural as English.

I'm also thinking complex thoughts in my head in Russian.

I'm honestly shocked on how far I've gone in such a short amount of time.

Thanks DuoLingo!

I see this as a start of a very bright future for me right now.

But for now, I'm very tired. I think I'll sleep for a bit. :)

Congratulations! I think your knowledge of Russian will be very useful, especially for ESL-students at an elementary level.

Oh, great! With your English level 4 you know language so well. Then, with Russian level 14 you can use Russian even better then English!

Awesome! You're my new hero. :-) Is English your native language? (I, too, am an ESL teacher. However, almost all of my students are Chinese.)

Yeah, I'm a native English speaker. I want to work more with German and Arabic speakers in the future. :)

Wow! Very ambitious. The majority of my students used to be from Saudi Arabia. However, I've never learned Arabic. I've had a few German-speaking students, and I really like the language. However, one must pick one's battles. Currently, I'm working on Russian and Spanish.

I know Russia and any Arabic countries are hungry for ESL tutors. My russian friends say you can live like a king in Russia if you're a native English speaker.

That's very encouraging to hear. I taught in Russia 9 years ago for 11 months. Since then, I heard that it's very difficult to get back in the country. I sincerely hope that's changing.

Yeah, from what I understand, getting a visa to goto Russia might become more difficult due to the variability of the current political climate.
