English is an international language and speaking it fluently does not mean teaching it proficiently. English is a uniquely versatile, flexible and culturally adjustable domain. Its impartiality towards racial, political or religious affiliations is an outstanding cultural drive that makes it ideally international. People speak English in every corner of the world, but only commitment to serve the cause of teaching English makes them equal no matter where they were born or raised. Armed with this philosophy, we never distinguish teachers as native or non-native speakers. Teachers of the English language have no race, nationality or religion; they have citizenship. Have we forgotten that 99% of top linguists of the English language never considered themselves as native speakers? We do not certify your level of language proficiency; we certify your abilities to teach English.
