Surveys- How many hours a week do you teach?

Hello Readers,

I'm curious to know how many hours a week you teach on average. While many university contracts include a maximum of 10-12 hours of teaching per week, quite a few private language schools ...

... have their teachers teaching 30 hours or more.

This month's survey is:

How many hours a week do you teach?
more than 40

To take this survey, go to: http://www.esl-jobs-forum.com/viewtopic.php?p=7403#7403

Feel free to take the poll and/or comment on this topic at the above link or on this website.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

let me introduce myself my name is Guadalupe Villegas from Mexico city. I´ve got trouble with my boss because we´ve got to open a course covering 80 hours. she insists on having 6 hours every saturday but I insist it´s too much time for a student in the classroom with the same teacher, at least I try to tell her we need two teachers but she continues ignoring me because she says I don´t have enough good reasons for reducing the timetable or at least having two teachers, I need enough reasons, could you help me?
