In Response To: Re: Teaching ESL for first time with no ESL traini (nomad soul)

Giving up on me so easy? So soon? LOL :-D

Thanks for the reply - I'm to teach beginner, intermediate and advanced to a police agency. I'm a former U.S. Police Officer with experience working in hot-spots across the globe - just spent the last three years in Afghansitan.

I'm to teach these guys/gals how to communicate in English as it relates to their jobs... I was very clear to the hiring manager that I have never done this before and am not TESL qualified however, they didn't care. They wanted an American native speaker and the fact that I am former military and law enforcement meant I was a "shoe-in"... I really don't want this assignment, however; under the circumstances I don't have much choice! ;-)

I have bought TESL for dummies and this is helping me out a lot actually... I've subscribed to pay-sites where lesson plans are available and after some research I have a few ideas.

I apprciate your help and advice!!! :) I like your ideas and will use them!
