Re: Some information needed please

That really is a horses for courses question. It just depends on the country and on the school. Some will, some won't. But in general if you're talking about docs that only they have, then they will help you.

Re: Catenative Verbs

The word catenative comes from the Latin catena meaning "chain". Catenative verbs combine with and control other verbs, like a chain. In fact, catenative verbs are also called "chain verbs". The verb governed by the catenative verb may be in infinitive form (with or without to) or in -ing form. In "...

Re: Do I need a TEFL certificate?

In general YES. https://www.tefl.net/tefl-courses/guide.php Are you planning to travel abroad? If so, a degree (in any subject, which you have by the sound of it) is required but this is for work permit regulations. After that, a TEFL certificate is more and more required by schools.

Re: What is a 'neutral accent'?

The best English accent for your SS from China is Chinese, whether they pay in dollars, pounds or renminbi. The goal of some artificially neutral or even “perfect” accent is absurd, not to mention fake

Re: Catenative Verbs

The normal structure is:

tend to do
