TESOL Videos - How do I get a job teaching English in Thailand?
This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
There was some very useful advice given in this unit. I had an idea of what it would be like to teach a Business English class; but there were some things that I've never thought about before, mentioned here. I wouldn't have thought to downplay how much I know about my clients' field so that I don't create unmanageable expectations for myself. In the same token, I should not reveal how much of the other's language that I actually know. I think I made that mistake while teaching in France, which encouraged my client to speak in French with me casually instead of trying to converse with me in English.
