Hi, I hope you don't mind me posting for advice here and sorry if what I have to say is long winded!
I am a native english speaker from London living permanantly in Denmark (danish husband and a child) with basic danish language skills myself. I have done a weekend only TEFL course about 5 years ago before I moved here but as of yet have not completed the extra 20 hours for a full certificate
I am constantly asked why I don't consider teaching english as there is a big market here and there is even an international department in a nearby school where children are regularly monitered to see if they can keep up doing half their high school education in english, so probably many a parent would pay to have their children get some extra help! I would love to start but I just have no idea how! Most danes already have a good grasp of english so I would not be teaching novices but if I advertise and ask what their needs are where do i go from there? Do people generally bring along work they want help with or do I provide structured lessons? My DH said students will probably like help with grammar and conversation. Are there any must have books I should have on my shelf? Is it appropriate to ask them to email me information on what they would like to do in their lessons beforehand so I can prepare?
Sorry if I sound clueless, I am lol but I also feel very enthusiastic to get started.
Thanks in advance, Katt.
