The Saturday IELTS Class finishes // Next Saturday, it starts again (May 26th)

Well, let’s have a little break in this ‘CLT & Taiwan’ series of posts (currently looking at fraud teachers, which is quite sad, but necessary to do). Let’s instead give something happier and more uplifting. My Saturday IELTS class just finished, and here’s the class photo from the last day. It was great teaching them all, and let’s hope for good things in the future for everyone, right. Wow, this is a far happier theme, right? [But, I’ll need to finish that other ‘CLT & Taiwan’ theme, since you as consumers need to know the truth]. That’s the great thing about being a teacher: you can help people in their lives, and feel so good about yourself in doing so. Trust me, it’s a great feeling, and it’s one of the reasons I try so hard. …

(32 of 50): CLT & Taiwan: About Fake/Not-Real Teachers of IELTS/English: 1st Sign

  (32 of 50) MODERN LANGUAGE TEACHING (CLT) & TAIWAN: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT About Fake/Not-Real Teachers of IELTS/English: 1st Sign In Posts 26 and 27, I outlined the ‘modus operandi’ (= method of committing a crime) that ‘fake teachers’ can use. Then I explained why you should not automatically ‘respect’ someone who claims authority in IELTS, but instead ask for evidence and proof of all claims. But I also accepted the fact that, in this culture, people are reluctant to ask their teacher for proof of their credentials. Hmmm. That’s a problem. …

IELTS Sunday Courses has finished // Here’s the photo // Everything finishing now, but AIS Term 4 starts this coming Sunday/Monday

  Hi everyone Sorry about the long delay in putting on a new post. AIS Term 3 had filled up, which meant 12+12+12+12+12 students, and each one with Writing Task Ones and Twos which needed correction most lessons. In addition, I have had to go to my publisher to discuss the new IELTS Listening Book, and work on that also. Well, last weekend the IELTS Integrated Skills Sunday Course finished, and here’s the class photo. Tomorrow, the IELTS Reading & Speaking will finish, and on Friday so too will the IELTS Writing & Listening classes, so there’s a lot of photos coming in the next few days. It is my habit to put them on pixnet, so that you can see the real thing. …

Another term (Term 2) has finished: but Term 3 begins today [& it’s FULL!]

Hi everyone Here’s a photo of the IELTS Writing & Listening Class, and it all finished last Friday, and it was great teaching them all. The IELTS Reading & Speaking Course finished the day before. Good luck guys (and girls). I feel so good that I was able to help you in life. But it all begins today, Monday 26th, with Term 3. I’ve got two IELTS Writing & Listening Courses (afternoon and night), and the IELTS Reading & Speaking Course (starting tomorrow night). Well, I’m sorry to see the last of the people in the photo (although some of them are in the new IELTS Reading & Speaking Course), but I’m always happy to meet new people, too. People are all different, in appearance, personality, intelligence, and skill-levels, but they are always interesting, and I always love helping them. Both Writing & Listening Courses are FULL (!!!), so I’ll be meeting 24 people…
