I would never say that having no higher qualifications means a dead end to a career in TEFL. All it means is that you will have less choice about the jobs you can apply for. Like any domain, the more qualif's you have, the more choices you have. Many people make a career in TEFL without higher quali...

Many UK universities offer distance learning MAs.

I know the university of Reading used to do one; it wasn't on-line, it was paper based. I don't know how it's developed though.

Your question

Louise,

Don't lose heart.

The beginning of September is generally a very busy time for teachers; they're getting ready for the new academic year and have other things on their minds.

If you don't need a response instantly, how about posting again in 2 or 3 weeks?

Falling intonation

Have you tried the book Pronunciation Games by Mark Hancock? If you put the title into a google search, you should find it. It's not specifically for the nationalities you mention; but there are intonation games. I'm sure you'll be able to adapt the activities. You could do that with any intonation ...

This is a place where anybody can ask questions and get expert advice.

Some versions of Michael Swan's Practical English Usage have an excellent section on teaching slang. And it gives some very choice examples too! This section has been banned in some countries. I think it is published by Oxford University Press. It also makes fun reading.
