Vision statements suggestions -- Atrium 4 March 2015
Hi everyone, I would like to seek for advice on the following vision statements as to which one is better for a start-up who wants to go into e-learning and overseas education business. 1. ..... ...
Re: Vision statements suggestions -- Dr. Turnoi Turjakuunnen 5 March 2015
Option 2 is more honest and realistic. Option 1 sounds a bit too altruistic for my taste, and we all know that businesses in ESL are not altruistic enterprises at all. Most of them are superfluous ...
Re: Vision statements suggestions -- Atrium 5 March 2015
Hi Turnoi, Thanks for the input. Some of my colleagues had the same thought. Cheers

Using a CELTA qualification in England. -- Joshua Coulton 28 January 2015
Hi there, I'm thinking of studying a CELTA at the minute, and as much I like the idea of the course (and the ability to travel and teach), I have seen on job sites that there are not many ...
Re: Using a CELTA qualification in England. -- Troy 7 February 2015
Yes, you can find employment with just a CELTA but it's likely to be freelance,part time or seasonal work and as a result poorly paid. Because of the influx of international students to the UK ...
Re: Using a CELTA qualification in England. -- Beth 29 January 2015
It depends. Do you also have a degree? Preferably one relevant to teaching English? If you do there are a lot of jobs teaching ESL in the UK, although they may want more than a years experience. Be ...

INTESOL Japan?? -- ESL teacher 13 January 2015
Has anyone had any experience with INTESOL Japan - specifically, their 150-hour online course? In the best possible world I do realise that an in-class TESOL certificate would be the ideal option. ...
Re: INTESOL Japan?? -- Beth 14 January 2015
Online courses do not offer you observed teaching practice an feedback, and so even the very best ones aren't really worth doing. Anybody can read and write about teaching theory, or learn what ...

Re: Creating a TEFL community - help needed -- Silverboy 20 December 2014
So basically you want to be just another grubby profiteer in ESL. If you go ahead with your "great idea" I will vigorously and actively campaign against it, and I mean it, no f..king around!
Re: Creating a TEFL community - help needed -- Roy 21 December 2014
Hi I appreciate you took the time to forward your views. I want to apologize for not being clear in my post, you seem to have the wrong idea. The entire website will be created by people in TEFL for ...
Re: Creating a TEFL community - help needed -- Beth 21 December 2014
I wouldn't waste your time trying to convince Silverboy of your good intentions. He's a troll and one of the main reasons this board isn't a more productive and supportive place.
Re: Creating a TEFL community - help needed -- Beth 21 December 2014
No, not profiteering. A place for real teachers to discuss real esl matters without trolls like you. Sounds wonderful to me!
Re: Creating a TEFL community - help needed -- Beth 20 December 2014
Hi Roy, I'd be very interested in getting involved. What you describe is what I had hoped to find here, but have so far been nothing but disappointed to find it dominated by people who have no ...

Re: Need clarification regarding teaching requirements. -- Silverboy 13 December 2014
Just one more thing: I just read the post of Turnoi on this thread. He is correct. You will still get a job without a degree or TEFL in China, but you will only get the "shit jobs" as we call them. ...

Re: Need clarification regarding teaching requirements. -- ICAL TEFL Courses & Resources 12 December 2014
It is ILLEGAL to work teaching English in China without a degree. That's not to say it doesn't happen, but every so often teachers working illegally there do get deported. Your best bet is to ...
Re: Need clarification regarding teaching requirements. -- Silverboy 12 December 2014
That is not exactly correct. I have known, and still know some teachers who are working legally without a degree in China. That is to say the public middle schools and high schools they work for ...
Re: Need clarification regarding teaching requirements. -- ICAL TEFL Courses & Resources 15 December 2014
I think it's a kind of gray area - a degree is needed for a working Z visa; without a degree you can't get a visa to work. Possibly some have bypassed this in some way (we can guess how) but ...
