The Timetable Of An EFL Teacher – What Can You Expect?

When I first started out as a teacher, I was very unsure about the amount of contact hours I should be doing, that is, the hours I was working in class with actual students. I also had no idea how much time I would need to plan and prepare all of said lessons. 

Since then, I like to think I have become quite savvy about the conditions that one should be looking for when thinking about a career in TEFL, and the conditions that you’ll be  likely to actually find. So here’s my take on it.

Teaching Pronunciation To Adult Learners

People are far more willing and likely to forgive grammatical errors than they are to forgive pronunciation faux pas. 

Owing to this, many speaking examiners will give a lot of credit to a candidate who attempts to produce natural sounding language. Making pronunciation a key part of language lessons and exam preparation. If you don’t dedicate much time to this aspect in your classes, now would be a good time to start!
