TEFL in Batam, Indonesia!

Date posted:2005-07-22 | Writer: Sekolah Djuwita | Email: [email protected]




We offer a pretty good monthly salary. In Indonesia, the standard of living is still very low compared to the salary we pay our foreign teachers. For example, Indonesian teachers with similar qualifications are paid Rp. 1-2 million per month.

You'll be earning Rp. 10 million per month. So, why work in Korea or China? The standard of living is very high compared to Indonesia. Plus, we pay your Indonesian income tax here. That's mean, you'll be keeping more of what you earn. For your information, it cost about Rp. 16.000 for a Big Mac (about US $1.65). Don't forget, you have time to visit and see Bali.

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.

 

THis unit reminds us that language is about more than just grammar. Too many teachers and curricula fall into the trap of teaching grammar, grammar, grammar. Grammar is important, of course. But it is only one part of learning a language. I prefer the body metaphor. Grammar is the skeleton upon which the rest is hung. Vocabulary is the \"meat\" of the body. Function is the brain which give the body a reason to exist.Unit 6 discusses the four forms of the past tenses to include (1) the past simple, (2) the past continuous, (3) the past perfect, and (4) the past perfect continuous, and how and under what circumstances each form is used. Unit 6 also identifies some of the mistakes and errors students make when using some of the forms of the past tenses coupled with providing some teaching ideas to help students in correcting such errors.
