Date posted:2012-07-17 | Writer: Bridge Institute | Email: [email protected]

Bridge Institute, located in the city of Querétaro, Mexico, is experiencing rapid growth in this, our tenth year of business, and we are currently hiring TEFL qualified teachers for a full-time position starting in August 2012. Querétaro is a medium-sized city located in the Bajío region about two and a half hours from Mexico City. It is known both for its UNESCO-world-heritage historic center and as a growing location for foreign investment in Mexico.

The job consists of teaching small groups of adults in on-site company classes in the mornings, and classes in the institute in the afternoons. Pay is very competitive and the school will also assist in finding adequate accommodations for new teachers.

The minimum qualifications to be considered for a teaching post at Bridge are an initial TESOL certificate and at least one year of teaching experience. Any interested candidate who meets the above requirements is invited to send his or her résumé to James Smith, the academic director, at the e-mail address given on the job heading.

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 was about the importance of teaching receptive skills and how to potentially teach receptive skills. Receptive skills are skills that involve taking in information. This includes reading and listening. Both skills are critical for students being able to actively communicate and function in English, as well, students need these skills to form relationships with English speaking counterparts.This module has some good ideas on teaching the different past tense forms with its suggestions of using pictures and holding interviews. I believe that many foreign language learners of English have a difficult time with past tense verb conjugation and even many native speakers do not always know the technical terms for these categories. So I think this is a very good lesson for students to review.
