Re: prospective teacher

If you have lived in the UK and Australia, you will be able to show them your visas so it shouldn't really be a problem about whether you are a native English speaker or not. However, the nations that don't really care where you're from are - India, Thailand, Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam. I t...

Re: How can I make my teaching lively?

It does have a lot to do with mentality and whether they want to learn or feel the need to learn. Before you start though, get to know your class. Have a bunch of icebreakers so you know where they are from, whether they truly feel like they need to learn or not. Ice breakers can be energizers where...

Re: Grammar for Kindergarten

Does anyone have any modern twists on teaching grammar? My classroom has access to technology and I have been scouring the internet for resources. I found this great video but was wondering if any of you had any recommendations. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Te6amrFh_2k - A youtube video on teachi...

Re: Reading books for young learners

Hey Ross, my students are still only just starting to pick up English and since I have access to technology, we have installed some free reading games. They have been most effective coupled with worksheets and an activity where kids draw and write their own story and exchange it. Then they read thei...

Re: Gap year travelling and teach?

Stu, I'm assuming you're from one of the Native English speaker nations. In which case you don't need a TEFL or CELTA degree. Depending on where you decide to teach, some places offer you courses to get your certificate while you are teaching. It is cheaper and it provides you the practical experien...

Re: Prospective teacher; saving money?

You can save 40-60% of your savings, dependent on your lifestyle, in countries like Thailand and Korea and to some extent, China. The best paying TEFL jobs, however are in the Middle East. Especially Dubai and Saudi. With Dubai, you need experience with teaching and a certificate. Saudi, Oman is mor...

Re: Prospective teacher, had a few questions..

Hey, I always say it's never too late to start. Travelling and following your dreams is one way to really carpe the diem! 1. You are a 'Native' English speaker and so don't need a TEFL degree. In fact, many Asian nations let you get a degree once you're there and working. (E.G. Thailand). You don't ...

Then at the end of the week, they will use those words or sentences to make a story out of it. It works really well cause the students find it amusing. T...
