Teach English

The CC English program is open to anyone over 18 years of age and living in the United States who wishes to improve their English. Students pay a monthly subscription fee. Students take a Placement Test to determine the appropriate starting level in the Confidence and Connections curriculum. They are mailed a hard copy workbook that is designed for them to write in to complete their lessons. As they complete the books, they progress through the levels and receive new books.

Teach English

CC English teachers are asked to donate a $30 training and resources optional fee at the beginning of their enrollment. This fee helps cover costs associated with training, developing resources, administration, and matching you with your student.

We will only charge you one registration fee, even if you are matched with more than one student during the time you teach with us. Your training and resources donation will be refunded within the first 30 days if you are not satisfied.

We don't want the fee to be a barrier for anyone, so if it presents a problem for you, please email support@ccenglish.org.

Frequently Asked Questions.


1What level will my student be, and how will I know?
All of our students complete an initial online placement test that matches them with a corresponding book level in our Confidence and Connections curriculum. Once you have been matched, you will receive your student’s profile information, which will include the book level of our curriculum that they tested into.
2What do I do if my student and I aren’t a good match?
We want to make sure all CC English participants are having a good experience. If you are having any problems, please contact us at support@ccenglish.org, and we will be happy to help. We can help you work with your student, or we can find a new student for you.
3What if I decide I can’t teach anymore?
You can cancel your monthly subscription at any time from your CC English account. When you cancel you will no longer have access to the CC English Platform, the digital curriculum, or any of the teaching resources. We will notify your student and match them with a new teacher.
