Are there any sites in the internet that you know, where you can learn step by step how to effectively teach teenage and adult learners?

I know that the best way to learn yourself how to teach is, probably, to participate in a, for example, CELTA course. However, it's pretty expensive, at least for me, for the time being.

Maybe you know some good books worth reading that deal with the subject of teaching?

thanks

There are hundreds of books on teaching English, from grammar to business English. I think you need to decide what you want to focus on in your classes. You should take complete beginners through vocabulary and grammar in progressive stages: use a course book like the "Headway" series and see how they do it. You can find exercises and activities all over the internet, and it would also be good to get a book on EFL games, which are very effective in teaching and make the classes more enjoyable.
Hello,

I'd recommend 'Learning Teaching' by Jim Scrivener. This is one which is recommended during CELTA courses and is a nice introduction.

There is also a series of books called 'How to teach ..'. For example, I liked 'How to teach Grammar' by Scott Thornbury, and the series includes 'How to teach Vocabulary', 'How to teach Writing' and so on.

Decent coursebooks such as the Headway series also have quite a lot of good ideas in the teachers' books, which can be helpful when you're starting.

I do recommend a CELTA though if you can manage it in the future, it's really useful to get such a lot of feedback on your teaching.

If you need any help with your grammar (if you are a native speaker, and so perhaps not completely au fait with the ins and outs of English grammar) I'd recommend 'Grammar for English language Teachers' by Martin Parott, and 'Practical English Usage' by Michael Swan.

Best wishes,

Seonaid

Have you considered training online? Online courses offer a great training opportunity at entry level. They can provide a thorough grounding in a new career and the right tools to approach a new profession within a manageable amount of time and finances. Learning which are the most effective teaching techniques, how to maximize classroom time, how to make your lessons useful yet fun, how to target your lesson towards a particular learning group, etc. it is all going to help you become a better teacher. Of course, reading a few books will help, but being trained by experienced and qualified tutors that can walk you through it can only be a good thing.
As Brad Carty of englishtoolbox says - there is a great deal of information out there and a lot of it is FREE. Start from the beginning and work them up...
