If you thought it would be easy to teach a language you’ve spoken all your life, then think again! It can be a huge challenge to learn how to break English down into digestible chunks, and impart information in a logical and intuitive way. But the thousands of people who teach English abroad can certainly testify to the huge popularity of this career, so if you’ve decided to take a TEFL course, if you’re on a TEFL course and want some back-up, or even if you’ve already started teaching and need a helping hand, then look no further. Covering how to teach grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, to assessing students’ performance, setting assignments and tests, and everything in between, this is a one-stop guide to one of the most enriching careers you can embark on.
