Dear New ESL Teacher
This book is written by an ESL teacher (who was once new) for new ESL/EFL teachers, those who are about to start teaching after earning their basic TESOL certification (e.g., CELTA). This is not a how-to-teach book but is instead a book to give the new teachers encouragement and advice and uplift them as they embark on their new journey. More
This book is written by an ESL teacher (who is no longer considered a new teacher) for ESL/EFL teachers with limited formal TESOL education, those who are stepping into this field after earning their basic TESOL certification. This is not a how-to-teach book. There are no ideas for lessons or activities, sample lesson plans or worksheets, tips on how to manage a class, build rapport with students, evaluate students, help struggling students, or deal with demanding students. None of that. This book is instead a book of encouragement and perhaps what one would call advice. What is written comes from the author's mind and heart based on her own experiences and is accompanied by prayer that this book can bring the readers encouragement and uplift them as they embark on their new journey.
