About the guide
With input from those already running ESL/EFL programmes, this guide is designed to be both relevant and practical. It contains plenty of lesson ideas for teaching English, useful tips for getting started and is a useful source for further EFL materials and resources. Based on existing programmes running in the UK, this is a great tool if you or your church are thinking of setting up an English teaching programme in your church or local community. It’s also helpful if you are already involved and want more input on structure, content & resources, or if you are a prospective volunteer who want a taste of what is involved in teaching English as a foreign or second language.
There are useful sections on how to get started, plan lessons and the role of the teacher, with additional guidance on teaching English to beginners. The guide contains helpful ideas on overcoming initial challenges, along with suggestions for how and when to introduce the gospel. This combines to add a practical sense of what is involved, with a comprehensive set of online resources for further research.
Written by TEFL professionals with a heart for sharing the gospel.
You don’t need to be an existing teacher or have any TEFL qualifications to benefit from the contents. The guide is for you if you are:
- thinking of setting up an English teaching programme Ð wanting a steer on organising/publicising and running
- a prospective volunteer thinking about joining an existing programme but wants a flavour of what is involved
- just interested in seeing what teaching English in an outreach environment might involve
