Oxford Seminars review, submitted by Ray.
The course centers on teaching grammar to students who are learning English as a second language. It was a difficult course and if I’m honest a bit monotonous and boring. But I guess teaching and learning grammar ain’t meant to be a roller coaster ride of emotions.
What I did like were the classroom activity examples where you get to learn how to reflect the focus from you and instead have the students cross-learn by themselves. For the most part when I’m teaching I do tend to be the person in the room speaking the most (I can’t see how it is possible to teach a language otherwise) but I do sometimes value some of the new approaches to teaching where students take the role of teacher for an activity.
I don’t think I will have any problems getting more work with the certification from this company. I already have a few online students that I found via the PrePly online teaching company. They were satisfied that the course covered all the knowledge that they consider important their teachers should know.
It is annoying that Japan is STILL closed off to foreign teachers. when it relaxes its borders again I’ll be wanting to teach in Tokyo. I have an interest in Japanese culture and I’ve read that language schools pay top dollar for ESL teachers.
