Hi,
I'm interested in landing a job in Southern Italy, but I'm having trouble.
I have experience, but no responses to emails or faxes to schools.
Can anyone help?

Thanks

>Thanks a lot for the website Lindsay. I haven't had much luck yet. I'm looking for an elementary/private
school for children. It's very difficult to find a directory for that city. I think i'm going to move on to
Buenos Aires because I found a lot of contacts there.

If anyone has any other suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks

General » Teaching Adults
Hello,
I took the TESOL course last June and haven`t yet started teaching yet. I'm planning on heading to Vietnam in the fall/winter of 2006. Now, that being said, I`ve been approached by a co-worker who would like me to "teach" him and his friend english (I'm currently living in Montreal).

I get the impression that they are at somewhat different levels (inferior/intermediate and intermediate). Since I haven`t yet taught, I`m not really sure what to do. Especially how to start. Any suggestions for teaching adults?? I don`t want it to be too easy nor too difficult! But I want them to enjoy it!

Thanks a bunch!

General » ALV summer camp information!
Hello

My name is Lonn. I had an interview. Did a person named Christina Franklin interview you? I m just curious because I applied for a job for a summer position in Taiwan for 4 months. She said she had to wait a couple of weeks for the owner to get back to me for hiring. I just want to know if they are giving me the run around. If it is not the same company can you tell me where to contact them for a summer position. I really need one. Thankyou. Sorry I couldnt answer your question.

General » ALV summer camp information!
Hello,

I just recently got a contract for a summer camp in Taiwan called ALV. I was just wondering if anyone has ever heared of this camp or knows anything about it to let me know how it is. Or if anyone has worked in Taiwan before how their experiences were.

Thank you!
General » Overseas GTC Teachers --- we need your help!
Hi Grads!

This is a gentle reminder that we would LOVE to get job postings from those of you who are teaching overseas and have employers who are looking to hire new teachers. We know that one of our most important services to you is being able to keep our Job Posting Board updated and exciting. We just received a posting from a grad who is teaching in Costa Rica who said their school is looking for one new teacher EVERY MONTH! This is what we like to hear! So please, send your job postings or links to the schools you're teaching at to:

manager@globaltesol.com


Happy teaching,

General » Dealing with Recruiters
Hi Grads,

I would like to post some advice about using recruiters. There are many reputable recruiters out there, but to be sure that you are getting what you have been promised, make sure that you do the following:

1. Ask for references of teachers who have gone through these recruiters
2. Make sure that these teachers are working at the same school where they are sending you.
3. If it is the first time that these recruiters are using the school where you are going and if they cannot give you references of teachers who both work at the school and went through their services, make sure you get e-mail addresses of 3 teachers who have used their services AND 3 e-mail addresses of teacher who work at the school

It is very important that you write to these teachers before you sign any contract.

Finally, you should never have to pay to get a job, so if a recruiter asks that you give them money, then they are not a legitamite company.

Sincerely,

Andrea
General » Teaching in Japan
Hi!

There is a way around the degree situation in Japan (legally), but it is tricker. You can get a holiday work visa if you are under 30 and have a genuine interest in the language and the culture of Japan, not just making money.

It is harder to get a job this way, but not impossible by any means. Many of my grads are overseas now teaching on this visa.

As for not being able to find jobs in the countries you listed, have you tried posting your resume online? THat is a sure way to get a job very quickly. I am very surprised that you are having such a hard time in countries with a huge demand!

Be sure to contact Lindsay, she has a TON of jobs in that area of the world!

I am sure you will both find something soon!

Andrea

I am a first year university student and I've been apllying practically everywhere with little success. I'm getting discouraged and I'm afraid I'm doing something wrong. I'm in the process of getting my holiday working VISA and I'm learning Japanese...is there something I'm lacking? Any help would be great...

General » Teaching in Japan
I'm not sure but I think you need to have a Bachelor'd degree + some teaching experience for schools is Japan.
I am also a recent TESOL grad from New York City and I have a hard time getting answers from schools in Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Korea. Even though I have my B.A. degree in teaching ESL and Math + I have my TESOL certificate + I have 3 years teaching experience.
But I don't give up.
Cheers.
