Is a Delta only for the serious ESL teachers?

I think so, unless you can prove me wrong. Everyone I know who has done a Delta has gone on to better, more responsible jobs, which I guess does mean they have to be a tad more serious at some point. Apart from Moi. I’m in the same job, but I’m happy there, and besides, I know my students have benefitted from me doing the Delta, which was my initial reason for doing it. If you’re thinking of doing the Delta, or maybe...

Fancy changing your ESL life? Then do a Delta!

It’s official, if you don’t do a Delta then you will become a dreadful ESL teacher and probably get eaten up by your blood sucking students and decide to go back home to work in Tesco. I chose to do a Delta about 4 years back, and it nearly killed me, but it was worth it. Not only can doing a Delta give you a growth in confidence and become an expert at phonetics, but will increase your status in the work place and widen...

What to expect over the next TEFL term!

What to expect over the next TEFL term!

So, it’s back to work. Whenever I start a new term I always try to remember how much I hated my jobs before I began teaching. I did IT recruitment and Sales for about three years in London before I made that jump to leave England and become a TEFL teacher. 12 years later I still have no regrets. Sure, no one likes coming back to work after a holiday, no matter what job you’re in, but it could be a whole lot worse. Reminds...
