Are you a new teacher needing advice or thinking of starting out in the profession? We attempt to give you some pointers to web resources here.

Qualifications

A number of TEFL Qualifications are available, albeit at some cost, but obtaining one is highly recommended. If you want to get some idea of the sort of things you will have to learn then TEFL Boot Camp will probably give you some idea.

Moving to another country

Many people will wish to move to another country to work - indeed this may be their primary motive. Justlanded provides a wealth of information which will be invaluable to new residents.

Getting advice

You are most welcome to ask for advice here, but other resources include the very helpful ESL HQ and Tefldaddy.

Acronyms

The TEFL world is rife with damn Acronyms and you will need to learn quite a few. Our list is here.

Other useful sites

We can also recommend: Spokenskills, Englishraven and, for your students, English-online and Manythings.
