To speak English doesn't make you an English teacher
Hey there, my name is Mariana and I've been an English estudent since I was 6 years old. Now I'm almost 25 years old and my experience with English language has been an adventure. I live in Mexico so I'm not close to situations where I must speak English. I just got better my language skills by the music I listen and by the tv shows that I often watch. When I started to learn Italian and French, English seemed to be easier for me and I met partners to practice by Facebook who made me feel more comfortable and my speaking started to be more fluent. That's all. Since quarentine started, my college partners asked me if I could teach them English because they think I speak really well (although I've never been to an English-speaking country) It sounded good at first, mostly because I saw the possibility of making money through my skills, but now I'm getting frustraded just because there are some grammar subjects that I got by practice, not by learning and I don't know how to explain them in a correct way for not to confuse them.
After I finished college I realized that I would have liked to study Teaching English or linguistics or English literature... I can do it yet but now I'm on trouble... How can I be an English teacher without a professional licence, how can I use the experience and skills I have got in these almost 20 years to my advantage?
Greetings from Mexico :)
