Date posted:2014-04-29 | Writer: The English Academy | Email: [email protected]

The English Academy, founded in 1991, is looking to employ a number of EFL teachers for the coming academic year, to begin in September 2014. We offer a good salary (with guaranteed hours), in-service teacher training, accommodation in Izmir and an end-of-contract sterling bonus. As we are an official test centre for both TOEFL and TOEIC, teachers with experience teaching exam courses will be at an advantage; but we are also happy to give less experienced teachers the opportunity to gain experience and develop.

All candidates should be prepared to teach both adults and children.

In addition to a good salary and a choice of free, shared accommodation or a housing allowance, we also offer an orientation course, ongoing in-service teacher development and a friendly, professional environment.

Applicants with a degree, a recognised TEFL qualification and the ability to work in a team should apply in the first instance to our Director of Studies, Paul Jordan, at the email 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 lesson taught the importance of receptive skills which consist of reading and listening. It gave a few examples of how these skills can be used, like for a purpose or for entertainment. After, I learned how various problems can occur for students learning English and how a teacher can overcome these problems by carefully selecting texts to teach or pre-teaching vocabulary before activities.This unit mainly focus on the 4 aspects of present tenses. We use different tenses depends on the situation. They have different forms, usages, typical errors and some teaching ideas. I think The most difficult part for students is the difference between 'present perfect ' and 'past simple because sometimes it's hard to identify them. So we need to drill in this part throughout the whole class.
