The village of Ketsoprony, Hungary seeks a native English speaker to fill a part-time ESL position immediately. The position will require 10 to 12 hours of teaching per week, and will include classes for school-age children and adults. The total number of classes will depend on the number of adult classes we are going to have; we will find that out by October. The kids' ages are from 10 to 14, and the adults are from 16 to 70 years old. Personal teaching experience and living abroad before is definitely a big advantage, but is not neccessary. In addition to a salary of approximately HUF 85, 000 per month, benefits include a fully furnished apartment with all utilities paid except for the phone bill and Internet access. Teaching additional classes and private lessons is possible if wanted by the teacher, as some high schools in the nearby city of Bekescsaba are looking for American English teachers to fill in for some classes. The term of the contract for this position is from the time of hire until the end of June, 2006. This includes the full school year, which ends 15 June, 2006, and a one-week day camp for the students of English, which generally occurs the week after the end of school. For more information about this position, or to apply, please contact Katalin Laurinyecz, director of the English program, at [email protected] or Lora Toothman at [email protected]. Serious applicants are encouraged to send their resumes and references to both addresses as soon as possible.

Every students should ideally be treated as an unique case. First and foremost, it is essential to understand what each students is trying to achieve by learning english as it could lead to providing the right activities in class and keep their focus to an optimal level. Furthermore, understanding each students' needs is a building block to creating a solid rapport between student and teacher and earning the student trust.This unit was a good reminder that the English language has many irregular forms, and many of these irregular forms do not have simple rules for students to use for help. In many cases, they must simply be remembered as exceptional items within the language. I find that many of these irregular forms are very commonly used in English, so it is important that the student gets these correct and does not skip or overlook them.
