Surveys- Which level do you prefer to teach?

Hello readers!

I've been talking with some of my ESL teaching friends recently about our prerferences for teaching and, surprisingly, our answers varied quite a bit. If you have the time, take this poll and let us know what your preferences are. If you have a little more time, it'd also be great to hear if you are experienced or not, qualified or not, and if you're experienced or not.

To take part in the poll, please go to...

the following link: http://www.esl-jobs-forum.com/viewtopic.php?t=775

Don't forget that you'll have to either register or log in before you can take part in the poll.

Please also note that absolute beginners are students who have never studied English before, whereas false beginners are students who have studied English before, but either forgot what they learned or never progressed very far in the first place.

Question: Which level do you prefer to teach?

1) absolute beginners

2) false beginners

3) intermediate

4) advanced

5) other

I look forward to reading your answers soon!
