Date posted:2009-03-24 | Writer: Fundación Escuela Bilingue | Email: [email protected]

Fundación Escuela Bilingue Puerta del Sol needs to select 2 to 4 native TEFL certified teachers of English to teach at our school at primary and secondary levels. This is a small school of very limited resources located in a beautiful small town in the Andes, Patagonia Argentina.We are a Fundación that aims at providing a better and bilingual education to all kids regardless their social or economical conditions. Fees are nominal and only charged to those kids that can really afford them, so most of the functional expenses are covered and supported by the continuous work and effort of parents and teachers in our school community, and a very limited help of the local governments.English teachers interested to come and live in Trevelin for the entire school year will teach 12 hours per week at the school (18 "school hours" of 40 minutes each) in exchange for:- accommodation in a house shared with the other English teachers (minimum 2, max. 4)- a Spanish tutor that will help you improve your Spanish while you are here- the 100% of the income generated for whatever extracurricular courses that you wish to teach to the rest of our community (outside required hours at our school), for which you would have full access to resources and school infrastructure. This shall help you cover food and other living expenses.If interested and available to teach as of beginning of April, please send us your cover letter and CV, both IN THE BODY OF THE EMAIL... (NO ATTACHMENTS AT THIS STAGE PLEASE as our internet connection is very slow and limited here). Write to the e-mail address given on the job heading.The school will contact preselected candidates and arrange a phone or online interview to discuss all further details.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


The 18th Unit had a deeper look at English grammar. Modals, phrasal verbs and passive voice were discussed. Modals are used to show different ideas: obligation, possibility/probability, permission, prohibition, ability, advice. Passive and active voices together with their forms and usages were described. Relative clauses with examples of pronouns in defining and non-defining relative clauses were mentioned.This unit used videos of two different lessons to demonstrate what one might observe in the classroom. When comparing the two lessons, this unit highlighted obvious do's and don'ts in the classroom. Most importantly, I was able to recognize the high level of student involvement in the superior lesson, which encourages me to have as much student participation as is effectively possible in my own instruction.
