    I regularly receive emails from teachers asking whether certain teaching job offers are 'legitimate'. This interconnected world allows scam artists to thrive. As the global economic environment continues to change, the number of employment scams increases. In addition, the scams become much more creative and ingenious with their tactics. I would hope everyone follows a very simple rule when looking at teaching job offers or any type of employment offer: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is".

    Professor Colin MacCabe of the University of Exter School of English says that to truly know a language, you must know something of the literature of a language.  Literature is intellectually stimulating because a book allows a reader to imagine worlds they are not familiar with. This is done through the use of descriptive language. In order to understand, the reader will create their vision of what the writer is saying. In this sense, the reader becomes a performer or an actor in a communicative event as they read. 

    Visuals are a great tool to help with student comprehension as well as make your English Language Teaching (ELT) / English Language Learning (ELL) or any language classroom a more exciting place to learn. Unfortunately, not all schools are equipped for this type of learning but most schools will have a multi-media room that can be utilized on an "as needed" basis by their teachers. In addition, the lesson could involve graphics and images using less technology based methods for presentation.

    When a school searches for a new ESL TEFL TESOL teacher for an open teaching position, they already have an image of the teacher they want. Every school has certain qualities they feel a teacher must have to be successful. Those qualities can be many things depending on the needs and location of the school. While the qualities that each ESL TEFL TESOL school considers important may vary, there are usually shared qualities that all schools would consider important to the job.

    I wanted to talk about interviewing from both perspectives which are that of the ESL TEFOL TESOL teacher looking for a new teaching job and that from the TESL TEFL TESOL school looking for a new teacher to fill their available teaching position. Keep in mind that this is just my advice and opinion on the matter. You should decide what you find useful and what does or doesn't work for you.

    You have decided on being an ESL TEFL TESOL teacher so you are off on the job search. Aside from the obvious considerations such as what country to work in and what teacher training and qualifications (TEFL/TESOL/CELTA/DELTA) to obtain; there are other things a teachers should consider when looking at potential job offers.
