Amazing Perks of Being a Volunteer Teacher - TEFL Blog

5 Simple Ideas on Teaching Grammar - TEFL Blog


Fri, 02 Aug 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas 5 Simple Ideas on Teaching Grammar I think of myself as having been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to learn other languages at a young age. I was taught French in primary school and at home, I learned or acquired Spanish. At school, I remember my language teacher being very textbook-oriented and she focused and followed the book to the “T”. I picked up easily on the grammar because I had already learned Spanish at home and I was also very keen to learn foreign languages, especially French. The grammar didn’t seem difficult or boring to me at all because I had already been exposed to the language at a very early age.

Is Teaching an Innate Gift or an Acquired Skill? - TEFL Blog


Tue, 25 Aug 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences Is Teaching an Innate Gift or an Acquired Skill? “Everyone who remembers his education remembers teachers, not methods, and or techniques. The teacher is the heart of the educational system” – Sidney Hook. Teaching is as ancient as time and its ways of imparting knowledge have evolved throughout the centuries. Past behind are those days when children were considered wicked and in need to be reformed (Hobbes’ view). Likewise, it stopped being a one-way relationship where teachers had a dominant position and students were just mere recipients of data.

How do I apply for a student visa to legally teach English in Europe? For non-EU citizens who want to teach English in Europe it can be a frustrating experience when it comes to getting a work visa.
