This helps to broaden their minds as well as develop a better understanding of the culture behind the language they are learning. Equally important is the need for the English teacher to develop an understanding of, and show an interest in, the cultural and social practices of their adopted home. Simple, innocent gestures from your home country could cause great offense to your hosts, while every day interactions in a new country can make a foreigner feel awkward and uncomfortable. A little consideration and understanding of how things are done in your new home can go a long way to making your experience a...  [Read more]

So what exactly does it mean to be a Teacher? - TEFL Blog


Mon, 25 May 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences So what exactly does it mean to be a Teacher? When I was still studying at the secondary level and about to enter college, a lot of people asked me if I was sure about my decision to take education as my course. Here in the Philippines, teachers do not get a high salary despite doing a lot of paperwork and a very stressful job. Maybe this is the reason why they asked me about my chosen profession and even I asked myself too, but I love to help. Being a teacher is not just about teaching lessons from the book and completing what must be supposed to be accomplished in the objectives of the lesson plan. The word "teacher" is very broad and everyone should be aware of that. Like what I said, the teacher's job is not just to teach but...  [Read more]

For example, if you are an engineer and you don't like your job, you can still manage to go to work but to be a teacher, you have to love what you do. It is just like being a mother of 20-30 children. You have to take care of them one by one. You have to be their psychologist, mentor, and idol at the same time. It's not something that you can do just for the money; at least if you're good at your job. That is why being a volunteer in teaching is an excellent way of making this planet better.

A Teacher’s Role in a Classroom's Daily Life - TEFL Blog


Thu, 30 Apr 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas A Teacher’s Role in a Classroom's Daily Life A teacher who teaches students in an environment using their native language will play various roles in the classroom.
