General information for native speakers working and living at TED Kayseri

1. Accommodation is provided on the school campus, so access to school is
very convenient. The school is also located approximately five minutes walk

post office and larger department stores, etc. is approximately 15 minutes
2. The flats are self contained units with a large living room, kitchen, two
bedrooms, bathroom and balconies and are located in the school garden.
There are four flats together so you are always near the other foreign
3. The school covers the cost of electricity and the only cost to the
teacher is the gas which you need for hot water and cooking. This is about
15 MTL per bottle and can last 1-2 months depending on use and how many
people in your flat.
4. You also have access to the internet from the flats, although you may
need to share this with the other foreign teachers.
5. Owning a car is not necessary in this city as the other teachers are
always happy to help out if you need help with transport, and the public
transport is also regular and convenient although I found it just as easy to
walk places. For domestic travel the coach/bus companies are cheap and very
comfortable with regular and convenient timetables.
Cost of living
1. Living in Kayseri is cheap and other than shopping for clothes the only
cost I had was for food and leisure activities which included the cinema and
skiing in the winter, I have included some examples for your information:

1 kg chicken breasts 5 MTL

2. The tourist areas can be a little more expensive but the prices are still
a lot cheaper than other European countries.
3. The cost of travel to these areas is also cheap, a dolmus (mini van
transport) to Cappadocia for example is approximately 3 MTL, and a bus to
the more distant areas is about 10 MTL for a 5 or 6 hour journey.

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.


Unit 14 provided some good examples of created materials that the EFL instructor can make. It also gave some good tips for when to use and how to choose a textbook. In my own classes, I almost exclusively use created materials so the provided websites and examples were very helpful. I also found the information about authentic materials to be helpful. I hadn’t considered how the same material could be adapted to different levels.The Productive skills are speaking and writing, because learners doing there need to produce language. They are also knowns as active skills. Apart from the obvious differences in grammar, vocabulary and sentence formation, written text has a number of points of differentiation to speaking English language. And to be creative speaking we can use the activity lesson ESA. Lastly, we can conduct a games to be adapted to language teaching
