Firstly, I want to wish China a Happy New Year; Welcome to the Year of the Horse. Let’s hope that this year good well!
I love what Google have done for today:
On the 29th I attended another i-to-i webinar ran by the funny Maire Crawford. The webinar was on Teaching One to One; I have done this webinar before but I felt that a refresher was needed. AS some of you may already know, I am currently working in a High School with Deaf children however, there is a high population of EAL students. I feel that I know that I could help them as well as working with my Deaf students. Some of the EAL students do come to me when they see me in any of their lessons; I am flattered that they feel they can come to me when they don’t understand what is happening in the class. I know that this webinar will not only help me with my Deaf students but with the EAL students too.
I would like to do some Online Teaching before I head abroad; do you think that is a good idea? People Per Hour may be a good idea right?
On the lighter side; I have been looking at some (more) videos of places I want to teach in…I found these videos about China that I thought I would share:
The World’s Biggest Chinese Restaurant!!! I really want to try this place out; I wonder how much it costs for a single person to eat there?!
(I may have already posted this video; but I could not remember or not…)
Also today I rang I-to-I to discuss with them the Internship to China…
…I am REALLY keen now! Tom the nice young man I spoke to this afternoon was very helpful. He settled my worries about the cost of doing the Internship – the more I-to-I TEFL Modules I do, the cheaper it will become. Excellent news right? I am so happy! I am now trying to find MORE ways of saving the cash, as I would have to paid for the Internship in one payment. Not the best thing for me, but I am willing to try!
