Hi, There are different ESL books around the world published by famous publishers such as Oxford, Longman, etc . Which one is believed to be the best ? And which ones are among the most useful ones around the world in different countries? American English Files is the one which is in great use in different language institutes. What about other countries? Cheers, Iman

I would like to improve my level as much as possible (vocabulary, speaking,...). Thank you for your help

Hi, I too googled these questions for the task to apply for the Celta course. I now have an upcoming interview. I have asked what the interview entails and have been told I will have 25 minutes of preparation time to make notes on 4 questions that I will be asked followed by an interviewe by a teacher trainer. Does anybody know what kind of questions I may be asked? The e-mail didn't give much away so it would be great to have an idea, Thanks

My desire to teach English abroad mostly stems from an interest in reconnecting with my birthplace--while I am genuinely interested in teaching, it's not my primary reason. At this point, I'm just shopping around for suitable certification programs. My biggest concern is that I have absolutely zero teaching experience, and am not a confident public speaker. Does this inherently prohibit me from becoming a good teacher, or is this something I can overcome with enough experience? Did any of you start out as 'introverts'? If so, did your certification program/initial teaching hours help ease you into feeling confident? Or is this something you still struggled with even while you were actively teaching? I'm not like an agoraphobic hermit or anything, but I just never had enough experience with public speaking to feel comfortable, and I get nervous in high-stress situations (e.g. job interviews). Is trying to teach just a bad idea for someone like me?

During my leaening vocabulary I translate into my own language and memorize, I recently notice that it's good way. Obviously I heard about wonderful way to learn words but I would prefer ask english teacher about the best method. I will appreciate each help.

Hi, I currently teach at a school that uses the Callan Method of learning English. I took the training for the method and found it incredibly rigid, artifical and often illogical. Thw whole point of the method is to enable students to learn English in a quarter of a time as well as concentrate on their conversational skills. However many of the phrases we teach the students (eg 'Are you your father's only child?' instead of 'Do you have any brother's and sister's?') seems a little strange, nay devoid of how people speak in the real world. Have you/do you teach the method? If so, what do you think? What changes would you make to it, if you could?

I am a non-native English speaker, who is currently in Japan, working as language instructor. I would like to become an English teacher. I do have a degree from a British University (English studies) and I have taught English for a couple of weeks as a substitute teacher. Now I am teaching my native language, which I enjoy, but I'd rather teach English. Therefore I'd like to do a certificate. I found the web site of Toronto's TEFL course and wanted to know whether this course is accredieted. Is the course as good as a CELTA? Will language schools recognize it?

I've been looking for a MA of TESOL program combined with DELTA. So far I've only found University of Bath that has such a program. I'm hoping for any information on finding other universities with the same type of program. I am aware that DELTA can be used for credit towards an MA but I'm only looking for the combined program. Thanks

Hello everyone, I'm currently in the process of writing a guide on how to teach online and would love to get feedback from teachers here. I have a couple of questions: *Have you ever considered teaching online?* *If so, what would you need to know to be able to get started?* Thanks in advance for any responses. You can reply here, or get in contact with me through my blog (on my profile page). Jack.

Hey all, my name is Robert, and I have a question about the types of positions you can hold as a TEFL certified teacher, namely the types of locations. I know that you can hold positions at both Private institutions and International/Language Schools, but is it possible to hold positions in Public Schools also, or no?

Hi Everybody, I've just found this site and have registered as a member... I'm an Englishman living in France (Normandy) and am considering, as a career change, teaching English to local French people, businessmen etc. Could anyone out there, who is already doing this in France, maybe give me the benefit of their experience? A sort of 'idiot's guide', if you will. I'm looking at the TEFL course and wondering, is that the benchmark, an essential tool to get started. And if so, are there a number of courses to choose from or is there a single, recognised, all-in-one course? Any comments/ shared experiences would be much appreciated. Best regards in advance, Richard.

I’ve recently finished CELTA. Great course, and really helpful. But obviously you can’t learn everything in 4 weeks, and there’s something I’m pretty curious about: “How do you start off a class of complete beginners?” (Adults who’ve never seen the English alphabet before) I’m assuming that you don’t hit them with the whole alphabet straight away; that you would teach it in increments.(?!) Teaching introductions and greetings first off seems fairly logical, and another teacher suggested teaching the verb “to be”. (?!) Any thoughts/feedback/ insight, on all of this? I’d love your help. Thanks heaps…

I decied to start a career in English and heard about the CELTA after doing alot of research I decided it would be a great chance for me. I took the CELTA in Vienna, Austria . I was very excited and in the beginning it was alot of work. But right away I and ALL my colleagues noticed many things that were not fair. A couple of our colleagues who didnt take the course seriously, would come in late or wouldnt come in at all (two weeks absent). One of the colleagues I would see on more than one occassion writing his lesson plan minutes before the class, while I stayed up late into the night preparing mine.Yes his lesson was horrible and during our input session we would get the same grade "a pass". Which would infuriate me. But I knew better to say anything. Then I might get a lower grade under "getting along with other teachers". So I would just sit, smile and take it. There were a few times he would actually come in smelling like beer. I worked hard and thought my hard work would pay off in the end. I watched during the four months as my beer drinking colleague sailed through the course without a care and thought he would surely fail. Finally came the day, for our reports which we received in the mail one week after our course was done. I eagerly opened it. What was written: PASS PASS!! I couldnt believe it!! Under the comment section they (our Tutors) didnt even write anything personal it was a standard template issued with a Pass grade something along the lines of: bla bla will need furthur guidance to become a succesful teacher. Which lets face it once you start teaching in the classroom you are on your own. I spoke with my colleagues including my beer drinking one and found out that only one of us received a PASS B. No one received a PASS A. During our observations I wouldnt even give my tutors a PASS A. But anyway the point is that the grading system is a very strict, unfair whatever word you want to use. I am very upset that I would be put into the same grade category as my beer drinking teaching friend who also somehow managed to pass!! I worked really hard!! Juggling family, work, and traveling to this CELTA center (three hours) for four months. Luckily I can get over it. But I have to add that many of my colleagues are very discouraged and many arent pursuing English positions as they should be. So let this be a warning to all who are considering in taking the CELTA course. I was told in the END that only about 5% of people receive a PASS B, and 5% Fail. The way the fail is by being absent, I dont know how many times they have to be absent since one of our colleagues missed about two weeks. NEVERTHELESS...I have to say I learned wonderful teaching methods!! I met wonderful people! At this point I cant stay I regret taking the course, but I wish someone would have told me in the beginning. Maybe I could have saved myself some heartache. Let me know what you think. Sincerly, A disappointed CELTA Graduate The good thing is you do learn great teaching methods from CELTA. ALso alot of teaching institutes only want CELTA teachers. So good luck to you.
