Fair enough, every teacher needs to understand grammar. No need to know it all, that's almost impossible and people have doctorate degrees in the stuff. But we will help you understand the basics.
Pronunciation is the key to the very best teachers! Untrained teachers can't even guess how to teach pronunciation and here we present a simple method that will have you helping your students very quickly. And they will love the progress too.
Reading is a receptive skill like listening and will be very similar in how to teach it. Surprised? No need to be. Explore how to teach reading and you find out what teaching EFL is all about. Different!
Teaching writing is a bit like teaching speaking skills, except you have more time to think about it and people expect you do it perfectly. Expressive skills are important and here you will learn how to teach writing step by step by step. Patience is key!
Listening is one of the most fun areas to teach. Anyone who has tried to learn a foreign language knows how difficult it can be to listen and understand a native speaker when they are speaking at a normal pace. Here you learn how to help your students understand what they are hearing. It is easier than you think, but if you don't know how to do it, you really are only hurting your students.
Get your EFL teaching skills put together and you can be a great teacher!
