This is a group for new ESL teachers planning to teach abroad. Many people get a TESOL certificate and plan to teach someplace exotic. But they often take off without adequate preparation. Knowing something about the culture and language of a country are critical to understanding how people think, act and talk. This group will be designed for teachers who want to learn or share insights into culture, language and teaching. The initial focus will be on Korea and Japan, both popular destinations for new teachers. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate.
