Maybe that is what TESOL it's self should do create a chat room so their graduates can talk to each other and tell about their experiences, where they are teaching, passing or sharing idea's, come on TESOL get with it
I graduated from Global Tesol in 2003 and have been teaching in China ever since. I'd be happy to share stories with people, answer questions people have and read about new and fresh ideas from recent graduates. The Chat room idea sounds good to me.
Oh by the way I was given an answer to the question re: "What is Proper English?" I just emailed the college and they got back to me. It was Joel actually. I think this is a great idea. I am not a graduate yet...I am waiting for the rest of the changes going on and then I will study online a llittle more then do the exam. I will have to arrange to get a "practicum" done. And then I am on my way to applying for positions overseas. I would so appreciate talking to people who are already experiencing teaching overseas. I know of one person who taught in China in 2004 and she loved it. She would go again but her daughter has cancer right now. Thanks Joel.
