  DIPLOMA REQUIRED
"I am a teacher of English (Language and Literature) in a secondary school in the Netherlands. This means that I teach pupils from 12 to 19 years old in all levels. I just spent the summer in Cambridge and found out that I need a TEFL diploma to be allowed to teach in some of the language schools which have been acredited by the British Council. I studied English at a Dutch university for 4 years and one year at the University of Lancaster. After I finished I did a teacher training course of one year. What do I need to get my TEFL (as I am teaching second language learners already)? "

Scientific English in China
Q.
I am a retired Ph.D.biologist with considerable authoring experience. I presently teach conversational English at a private colege level institution near Shanghai.I would like to stay in China, and to that end seek a position in a biomedical institution where my experience as author -- of scientific papers, and of more mundane works --and scientist can be utilized. This might be teaching a course in "Scientific English", or editing biomedical papers written by Chinese authors for publication in English peer reviewed journals, or searching the (US) National Library of Medicine's MEDLINE database on behalf of biomedical research organizations or researchers. Can you advise me how I might get in touch with organizations or individuals who could use the services I propose.

A.
As you are already in China you are probably better placed than most to approach the appropriate organisations and people. I would imagine University Science Depts. and large corporations and companies which undertake scientific research would be the best place to start. If names and addresses of these are not readily available to you, perhaps a request to your Embassy of Consulate would help.
