Become an expert English language teacher
If you speak English fluently then you can become an
English language teacher within hours and not years.
You do not need TEFL certificates, nor university degrees
to be able to teach English to foreign language students.
The days when only a few could teach English are over
and with modern language courses such as the New Headway, today anyone can become an expert English language teacher.

What is the New Headway language course ?
The New Headway by Oxford University Press is an English language course composed of several course books and is tailored to English language students and also to English language teachers.
The course books of the New English File series are:
• New Headway Beginner
• New Headway Elementary
• New Headway Pre-Intermediate
• New Headway Intermediate
• New Headway Upper Intermediate
• New Headway Advanced
Each of these courses include:
The New Headway student's book, New Headway workbook, New Headway Class audio
The teacher does not need to have all the course books but only those that are required to teach the level of your students. After you get more students, you the teacher will slowly add each course book to your library and will probably end up owning all of them.
And if just a few hours of teaching one student will pay for one of the Headway course books [ student's and workbook and class audio] then this is the best investment you can make.
The students use the student's book and workbook for their level of English, and the teacher also has the student's book, workbook, and also the class audio cd's which are for the student's book.
That is all both the student and teacher need.
And you can also teach English via Skype using the New Headway course books.
Why New Headway ?
The New Headway course books by Oxford University Press offer the most complete language course for all levels of students, from absolute beginners to intermediate all the way to the advanced proficient level.
The great thing about the New Headway course books is that they are available worldwide in most good language text book bookshops, and even can be bought cheaply on Ebay, or ordered online.
So if you get a new student in who is based in Brazil and you are based in the UK, then both you and the student can get the books easily and do lessons via Skype.
You the teacher will obviously already have your New Headway student's and work books, and the New Headway class audio, and all you need to do is to get the student to get his student's book and workbook his local bookshop.
Our course for teachers on the New Headway course books will help you understand how best to use the course, and mainly how to feel confident in teaching English.
Also, a very important point included in our course, is that we will also show you how to obtain the best audio and even how to play audio whilst teaching students via Skype.
Getting good quality audio in playing the New Headway class audio via Skype is not as simple as it may seem.
