Description : Ever since I can remember I have had an insatiable desire to travel. I have always wanted to see the word, experience new things, and have a pretty good time while doing it. Unfortunately, there was a rather large barrier to my dreams of travel. Namely the fact that travel is incredibly expensive. Which is when I started to explore my options, and stumbled upon the concept of teaching English abroad. After looking into it further, I realised that it was exactly what I was looking for. An opportunity to travel, immerse myself in an entirely different culture, and make money while doing it. It truly sounded too good to be true. But I quickly found out it wasn't. Since that time I have worked teaching English abroad in over a dozen different countries. I have had the pleasure of seeing some incredibly beautiful places, and meeting some truly amazing people. The work is rewarding, and the lifestyle is perfect. But the process required to get to this point took quite a bit of trial and error, in which it certainly wasn't as easy as it could be. Which is actually what promoted me to write this book. By learning from my experiences, you can find out everything you need to know to teach English overseas.

Description : Today, there are about four nonnative-speaking English teachers for every teacher who is a native speaker. More English teachers work in non-English-speaking settings than in English-speaking settings, and most are natives of the countries in which they teach. This volume focuses on the challenges faced by English teachers for whom Englishis a second (or even third or fourth) language. Four themes receive special emphasis: communicative language teaching, proficiency, language learning, and practicality. Chapters 1-5 cover issues of classroom survival: basic principles of language learning and teaching and course and lesson planning. Chapters 6-13 discuss the language skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, and grammar; the role of culture in language teaching; and some of the problems that recur in EFL classrooms. An afterword suggests paths for teachers who want to pursue further study, and appendixes offer a starter kit for course planning, samplecourse plans, culture-topic activity ideas for oral skills classes, and print and Internet resources for teachers and students.

Description : While there is an abundance of books about the techniques of ELT, until the arrival of the first edition of this book in 2002 there had been very little published on how to develop a career in ELT. An increasingly popular career choice for many students (whether as part of a gap year or immediately post-university) what was originally seen as a means of travelling and ""avoiding the real world"" has become a structured career path of choice for many. Illustrated with case studies throughout, the book will show readers how to enter, progress and move between different ELT pathways. Fully updated to include details of all of the various qualifications on offer, this book will help readers to assess the institutions that provide and accredit the wide variety of qualifications available.
