I was born in Malaysia but lived most of my life abroad in Canada, Europe, and Australia. I studied Philosophy and minored in English and apart from teaching English as a Second Language, I am a freelance writer. Apart from seeing countless students whom I have tutored in Singapore and Thailand excel in English, I do both private and open-class ESL teaching anywhere in Kuala Lumpur. I have two professional teacher training qualifications, the Cambridge CELTA and a TQUK TEFL qualification. I use the communication approach in teaching English as a Second Language giving students sufficient speaking practice in the classroom. You will be able to see how your child improves in his/her ability to communicate effectively within months.
In the hands of a qualified CELTA-trained ESL teacher, no it isn't. But ultimately, it will depend on how much of time the student puts in speaking, reading, writing and listening to the language.
It will depend on how good the teacher is and how much of effort the student puts in practicing all four areas of ESL.
