Teaching English in Vilinus

Progress Report – Teaching English in Europe

So the time has come for the last class session for some of my students. It’s important to provide students with an overview of the course as a means to recap on the topics covered in particular: grammar points, vocabulary, common themes and structures. The best way to do this is by keeping a progress […]


TEFL Jobs in Summer camps

Teaching English in Summer Camps

English summer camp teacher vacancies are popping up left right and centre on various job forums.

Crafting the Perfect TEFL CV

The dreaded CV. There is nothing complicated about a well crafted TEFL CV, and yet, they give nearly everyone anxiety. Nobody wants their application to get the Tinder treatment; swiped left–rejected with barely a glance. Job hunting is always a numbers game, but if you follow these guidelines your TEFL CV will get the attention […]


Choosing a TEFL Programme

How to Choose the Right TEFL Programme For You

Teaching English as a profession used to be a secret that travellers and expats kept to themselves. TEFL certifications were extra fluff; in a pinch, you could buy one on Khao San Road in Bangkok. But times have changed. ESL instruction has become a well-coordinated global industry with continually rising standards. A TEFL certification is […]
