From Taxi Driver to International Teacher - a Graduate’s Story - TEFL Blog


Wed, 10 Apr 2019 Mark Crocker Alumni Experiences From Taxi Driver to International Teacher - a Graduate’s Story Many people may think that the worst part of being an Uber driver are the belligerent midnight trips from downtown to the suburbs or the aggressive pre-coffee commuters or the fact that a five-minute drive can take thirty minutes because of gridlock. However, as an Uber driver of one year, I believe that the worst part about the job are trips to the airport. When I interacted with passengers going to the airport, I would think of all the new things they would get to try and the different cultures they would learn about. The problem with these trips was they were a constant reminder that the world is just waiting for us to explore it, but I was stuck leading a...  [Read more]

Do you need a TEFL If you are a qualified teacher? - ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ TEFL FAQs

Tefl reviews - English Grammar Past Continuous Teaching Ideas 2 Tefl - ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ITTT


English Grammar - Past Continuous - Teaching Ideas 2 - TEFL   For this TEFL teaching idea we ask the students to look at a scene in a hospital where there are several people doing different things. Students are given time to memorise the picture before it is turned over. The students would then be asked to say what the people were doing in the picture. For example: A nurse was giving a patient an injection. A man was pouring a glass of water. As the trainer notes in the video, this activity can be adapted to make it into a competition by having students in teams compete to remember as many actions as they can. Grammar points such as this are often seen as fairly boring to most English language students, especially those who do not choose to study English. So being able to come up...  [Read more]

Lesson Planning - Part 8 - Process For Study Activities   Just to finish off this particular section on lesson planning, we're going to go through a couple of procedures that should take place during the study phase periods, particularly when we're doing the activities.

Classroom Management for Teaching English as a Foreign Language - Using Students' Names   It is very important that whenever we?re doing an activity that we use the students names wherever possible when we're asking for feedback and so on and so forth.

Tefl reviews - Overview Of All English Tenses Present Tenses Present Continuous Miming - ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ITTT


Overview of All English Tenses - Present Tenses - Present Continuous - Miming   Another idea for the present continuous tense focuses on the action of miming. Because it's in the present continuous tense, it'll be critical that the student, who is doing miming, continues to do the miming as the students guess what he or she is doing. In order to do this, the teacher will ask one student to come to the front of the class and present them with a card. The card at low levels will just be one word such as 'sleeping,' 'surfing,' 'eating,' or 'playing'. As soon as the student is able to mine any one of those actions, the students continue to guess with 'You are sleeping,' 'You are eating,' 'You are surfing.' Now at higher levels what you could do is continue on from the base of the...  [Read more]

The Challenging Way of a Teacher to Create Confident Students - TEFL Blog


Thu, 26 Mar 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas The Challenging Way of a Teacher to Create Confident Students Confidence is a state of being certain either that a hypothesis or prediction is correct or that a chosen course of action is the best or most effective. Confidence comes from a Latin word fidere' which means "to trust"; therefore, having self-confidence is having trust in one's self.; for students who have English as their second language, the confidence in speaking in English is mostly low as they do not practice the language often enough and they worry about being wrong so they'd choose not to talk at all. As a Filipino, schools in the Philippines use English as our medium of teaching. Therefore, most of the Filipinos do know the right structure of grammar, vocabulary...  [Read more]
