The United States is a country of immigrants, and as such the demand among individuals to learn English is substantial. As such, there are a number of English as a second language schools as well as English-language schools and assist people with actively learning the language. These businesses are able to always remain profitable and cash flow positive given that the learning of the English language is considered a necessity by most people. These businesses are able to generate significant incomes on an ongoing basis from providing English-language tutelage to the general public. One of the other nice things out these businesses is that they typically have very low startup costs and these range anywhere from $25,000 to $75,000 depending on whether or not a standalone retail facility will be acquired in conjunction with the services. The gross margins are exceptionally high and usually range anywhere from 90% to 97% penny on whether or not credit cards are accepted as well as whether or not bad that expenses are included as part of the cost of goods sold.

Given the strong demand, economically secure nature revenues, and low risks of startup – financial institutions as well as private investors are usually willing to provide the necessary capital to start an English language school. These businesses typically have few tangible assets and the debt obligation or investment is usually a function of the high-margin revenues that are going to be generated. The English language school business plan should feature a three year profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. A very large scale demographic analysis needs to be done in order to ensure that there are enough people that want to learn English as a language within the target market. This is very much a face-to-face business, and as such a thorough analysis of whether or not there are enough people to have the class reach occupancy at all times is warranted. A competitive analysis should also be included given that there are usually a number of other English-language schools in most major metropolitan area markets.

An English language school marketing plan also needs to be developed in order to ensure that people can become quickly aware of the school’s occasion and existence. Advertisements within the target market should be distributed within libraries, schools, and career centers so that people who are wanting to improve their lives can quickly find the business when needed. This is usually the quickest way that these businesses conduct their operations. All materials should be bilingual so that people can very quickly read and get instructions as to where the school is located.

A presence on both the Internet as well as social media platforms is absolutely necessary for this type of business as people will usually conduct their searches online or ask friends and family via social media platforms. Popular platforms that are usually targeted by English-language schools include FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. This can rapidly expand the visibility of the business right away. One of the other ways of these businesses grow is by establishing ongoing relationships with high schools and community colleges that have individuals that are struggling due to the fact that they do not speak English as well as needed. This can be a great source of referral revenue for the company.

An English language school SWOT analysis should be produced as well in conjunction with both the business plan and marketing plan. As it relates to strengths, English-language school services are always in demand given the fact that it is the most common language within the United States. The gross margins are high and the barriers to entry are very low.

For weaknesses, in any given market there is usually a significant amount of competition as a relates the number of English-language schools in operation. Additionally, there are a number of people that provide the services as a one-on-one tutor.

For opportunities, the best way to expand is simply to establish additional locations while hiring additional teachers at that can teach more classes. This is typically the only way these businesses are able to expand within a local or regional market.

For threats, there’s really nothing that is going to impact the way that these businesses conduct their operations moving forward. Even during times of economic recession there is a continued demand for English tutelage.

English-language schools can be a highly lucrative opportunity for a qualified teacher that is looking to develop their own entrepreneurial venture. One of the keys to thriving within this industry is to provide a significant amount tutelage while remaining patient with people as they progress through the language. One of the best ways to expand these operations is to have people that speak a number of different languages be able to provide English-language tutelage so that anyone from any background can learn. These services will remain in demand at all times.
