  Teaching in China
"I am going to be teaching in China at a university. I was wondering before I go, what Chinese students find most difficult about the English language. Is it listening and pronounciation? Rather than writing and reading? It would just help me to know beforehand so I can prepare. Many thanks. "

TEACHING KIDS.... EEEK!
Q.
I have been teaching adults for three years now and the school where I am working is seeing a dramatic increase in the number of children enrolling for classes. This has meant that I have been asked to teach the bulk of my timetable to youngsters between 7 and 12 years of age. I have absolutely no experience in teaching this age group and am at my wits end to know how to handle them, let alone teach them. Do you know of any shortcut to tooling me up quickly for this type of teaching?

A.
This is a global trend so you are not alone, I am sure! There are several Certificate level courses to prepare teachers of young learners, both traditional and distance mode, which you might consider. For an immediate source of help, why don't you persuade colleagues to meet up on a regular basis to share problems, solutions, ideas, and techniques. I am sure most employers would happily support this kind of initiative, at least in terms of providing a venue, if not actually paying for meeting time. Also, check out publisher´s reps. They will be able to tell you when and where there are likely to be training workshops in your area and they are usually only too happy to provide suggestions and tips on how to best use their material - indeed the material itself can often be a treasure trove of ideas, particularly the teachers' books.
