New E-Guide Alternative to TEFL Certification

Launched into cyberspace several months ago, the e-guide 'How to Become an ESL Trainer' unexpectedly finds itself in the market niche long held by TESOL/TEFL certification courses. "This was not my intention, but I’m certainly glad to see it happening", says Miriam Lavi, author of the guide and director of an Israel-based English language institute. "Since ESL trainers needn't necessarily hold university degrees/teaching licenses in the field, ESL training has become the 'career of choice' for an increasing number of native English speaker living abroad – regardless of their professional/academic backgrounds. While many would-be teachers opt for TEFL certification courses, many others are hired on the basis of a personal interview and whether they fit the 'company image'." The 46-page downloadable guide to working 1:1 with professional adults comes in the pdf format, and can be read onscreen and off.
