  • Unless you are volunteering, your school will typically provide you with the basic necessities you need to teach a class:
    • Text books/Reference materials
    • White board/chalk board/markers/erasers
    • Curriculum
  • Most schools will provide you with the above materials as well as other useful materials such as: flash cards, worksheets, story books, ESL games, etc. Some schools may have language labs and Internet learning for students. If you are volunteering you may want to consider bringing helpful tools like chalk and flashcards.
