Here's a few tips for teaching ESL. You can click on the link below to read the full article.

Be able to improvise. Be able to think on your feet. Often things won't go as planned. Plan on that! You may find out that the students already studied the lesson you just planned for. Or maybe everybody forgot their books. So what are you going to do? Unexpected things will happen and when they do you'll need to be able to respond to it.

Your students speak 80% and you speak 20% of the time. Of course there may be times when you're speaking more in the classroom, but as a general rule keep 80/20 in your mind.

Be consistent
Especially in regards to your rules. If you set a rule keep it. Being inconsistent with rules undermines them. The kids will see that and act accordingly.
