Often, stereotypes about kids and technology can get in the way of what’s at stake in today’s complex media landscape. 11 Best ESL Resources for Teachers Expectation: If you’re a native English speaker, then teaching English abroad must be a cinch, right?

Although many people dabble in art when they’re younger, few people choose to hone their skills into their teens and adulthood.
