All students have objectives when taking an English class, but this is especially true of IT English students. Whether their objective is set by their working place or by themselves, it commonly involves learning the English they need to get ahead at work, connect with international clients, earn more money or maybe even keep their job. How is teaching IT English differs from teaching general English? Learning vocabulary for the work context is the number one priority for many ESL learners in IT English classes. One might be thinking, “But teaching IT English classes requires special qualifications, doesn’t it?” It helps them to communicate their message in a simple, effective way. This makes it important to teach common words and set expressions for everyday work situations. In order to achieve these goals, they need specific types of knowledge. Whatever it is, students will not be successful unless the teacher focus on what they need to know. Many teachers of English as a foreign language feel intimidated by the prospect of teaching IT English. This often stems from the perception that teaching IT English is the same thing as teaching IT studies. In fact, it's more about helping learners develop their English skills for use in an IT context. The demand for English teachers in the IT world is high, and if one knows how to teach English at all, he can fill that demand at ease. It is highly possible to have lively and effective classes using the wide range of vocabulary and excellent comprehension. All in all, IT English teaching can be very fascinating and rewarding. Although teaching ESL students requires a variety of skills and techniques, it mostly boils down to good preparation and a professional approach. Armed with really good knowledge, the IT English class will not only be a great learning experience and fun for students, but it will be pleasure for teacher as well.
