In Response To: Good online course to teach online? (Maryann)

TESOL runs a 'Principles and Practices of Online Teaching' course, which you can find out about here:

TESOL also has some useful resources about teaching and learning -for example, this:

tinyurl dot com/tesolq-a

The British Council also offers an online course, targetted at a worldwide audience (many of which will be bilingual teachers of English) and which also prepares teachers to take the TKT test (if they wish). It costs 390 GBP. Details at

tinyurl dot com/tkt-essentials

There are also quite a few courses in online teaching run by universities. These won't focus specifically on English teaching, but will cover general principles, resources etc in the methodology of teaching online (irrespective of subject). There's one coming up soon from Oxford Brookes University, which is offered free, if you just want to particpate, or for 425 GBP if you want to complete the assessment and receive credit. Anyway, details of this are at

tinyurl dot com/OBUteachingonline

If you are starting off in this field, you should probably read up on English language, grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary as well as the four skills and language learning in general. You could get copies of books on this by Jeremy Harmer, Michael Swan etc from your library or from Amazon etc. You can find relevant resources on the TESOL and British Council Teaching English sites which host the courses I've mentioned above.
