Emphasis English Academy is currently recruiting one new full-time EFL teacher who is available to start work in Kuala Lumpur on the 23rd of June, 2015. We believe that the ability to speak English fluently is essential for everyone in the modern world. We also believe that learning English is much more than just memorising lists of words. At Emphasis English Academy, we teach young people to master the skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening in English and we do that through the Emphasis Method. Our methodology involves engaging the students with interesting lessons and encouraging them to express themselves with creative speaking and writing exercises.

Founded in 2004, our dedication and passion for teaching English has helped to grow and grow over the past ten years. We have a reputation in Malaysia for excellence and we are firmly committed to developing that reputation by delivering the highest quality courses for young people. We have two centres in Malaysia (our main centre in Kuala Lumpur and a branch in Seremban).

Living in Kuala Lumpur is easy for the adventurous expat. There is a basic standard of English among the general population making it easy to get around and with a huge mix of activities from diving in the clear tropical waters of the islands to attending world-class performances at the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra in the world famous Petronas Towers, Malaysia never ceases to offer something for everyone.

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 conditional is complicated to use and difficult to teach. There are games to help the teacher make the lessons more fun. The reported speech is also complicated and not easy to teach because the students needs to master the grammatical structure of reported speech. Many students make mistakes and the teacher should try their best to help students understand and use this grammar correctly.This unit mainly introduces the structures, usages and teaching ideas of the future tenses. I 've gained a clear overview and comparison of these tenses. Hence, I think I may drill or mention them clearly and logically in my own lessons, especially in comparing and error-correcting parts. In addition, the teaching ideas mentioned in this unit provide me a lot of materials for my teaching too.
