Interview with teacher and author, Frank Adamo

Q. Is there really a big job market for English-speaking teachers abroad?

F.A. English is the international language of science, medicine, information technology and business, and is fast becoming the international language in other fields as well. For example, according to a recent issue of Newsweek, all of the world’s top 10 universities are in the U.S. and Britain, and 30-40% of our doctoral students come from overseas. If foreign students want the best education to get the best jobs, they need to speak English. In some foreign cities, students need to pass an English exam to enter their own universities!

Q. What about the job market for teachers in Italy right now (2015)?

F.A. Frustration with traditional Italian schools has led to the increasing popularity of international schools offering the entire curriculum in English. There are teacher jobs for English-speaking teachers in every subject, especially English as a second language (ESL). Americans, Canadians and Australians are working in Italy even though they aren’t citizens of the European Union, but there is stiff competition. The world financial crisis has led to many English speakers who never dreamed of teaching anything, let alone English, looking for teaching jobs abroad. Working in Italy nowadays is becoming an impossible dream, especially for casual job-seekers who naively hope to find employment without bothering to become well-informed.

Q. Is TEFL or other certification necessary to teach abroad?

F.A. As in many other countries, the rate of successful foreign language learning in Italy is very low. Outdated teaching methods combined with a lack of student motivation translate into frequent failure in learning ESL. This situation has led to the rise of teacher training frauds. Web sites claiming to offer jobs abroad are merely selling TEFL or similar courses. You apply for what are actually fictitious teaching positions, and then you are told: Since you don’t have a TEFL certificate you’ll have to pay Ђ1,000 for our course. By the time you finish the course, the position you applied for is no longer available. The scammers are on the blogs posing as your good buddy, while steering you to buy courses, and they feed false info into the online encyclopedias. The scammers often pose as teachers who worked in Italy and offer superficial advice, with the inevitable plug to be sure you get qualified by buying a TEFL course.

Q. What exactly is your claim to expertise in teaching in Italy?

F.A. I’ve been teaching ESL in northern and southern Italy for nearly 20 years, and I continually update the most detailed, comprehensive and authoritative employment guide available: Teach English in Italy, now in its second edition. Although a printed edition is available from Amazon and other booksellers, the printed book was already out-of-date by the time it reached the shelves. The most up-to-date information and jobs are only available in the eBook you can order from this web page.

Q. What kind of information, specifically, does your book offer?

F.A. Step-by-step instructions to find jobs in every field of opportunity: university positions, state schools, commercial language centers, and freelance tutoring, PLUS practical help to do your job effectively. PLUS a list of genuine job openings with the employers’ contact information. The perfect gift for graduating students, recent grads, the unemployed, career changers.

Q. How has the current financial crisis affected the job market for English-speaking teachers in Italy?

F.A. The reality is that there are more people looking for jobs as ESL teachers now, but most people make the mistake of simply searching for the latest job ads and then sending off their C.V. (rйsumй) as quickly as possible. They literally don’t know what they’re doing, and waste their time and energy for nothing. Even in booming Asian economies like China, an uninformed person is more likely to fall victim of a fraud than find decent employment.

Q. Anything else we should know before investing our time and money in a new career?

F.A. The web is great because you can get some information quickly and easily, but don’t make the costly mistake of thinking you’ll find out everything you need to know by reading three or four pages on a few web sites, or casual conversation on blogs – the blind leading the blind. If you really want to be well-informed you still need to read a book, if not several. You can read the whole story in the eBook Teach English in Italy to take advantage of my extensive experience, and then you can contact me by email or telephone for continuing advice every step of the way.

VENICE: Primary school teacher needed to start September 2015. Contact.

As reported in the Wall Street Journal beware of sites that ask you to enter your personal information in a “rйsumй database,” since you may be at risk of identity theft. Schools aren’t so desperate for teachers that they go searching through the databases of sites selling short certificate courses of questionable value.

Sheppard Software: Fun free online learning games and activities for kids


I stumbled upon your fun interactive geography games from a link on the Massachusetts Geographic Alliance Website. Since then, your games have become quite a hit with my competitive colleagues!
–Candice Gomes, Education Outreach Coordinator, Boston Public Library (Sheppard Software’s geography games were featured in the Boston Public Library’s 2006 Exhibition on Mapping)

Terrific online educational games, especially geography.
–Dallas Children’s Museum

First, let me say I love your website! I have students with learning disabilities that need multiple way to learn math, and your site fills the bill! – Darrin, Rose Park Elementary in Billings, MT
Awesome site. it is the only reason I am passing my World Geography class! –Stephen
Our preschool teacher just sent us homework with this new website on it! My twins love it – they are 4 1/2 and can’t get enough! The sounds, the action, so many choices and things to do. I bookmarked this for them and have sent the website to numerous friends and best of all it’s FREE!
Thank you for such a wonderful learning tool. — -Cherie Ventola

Let me say that you guys have an awesome website. I stumbled across your site one day, and it has been the easiest, most effective, and really the most fun method for learning geography that I’ve found. –David Weaver

I am thrilled to have stumbled upon your site! As a homeschooling mom, I love to find sites that encourage brain activity and reinforce the facts I teach during learning time!
The range of information is wonderful. Keep up the fantastic work!
-Mrs. JaNell Hancock

Your games are AMAZING!

Your website has SO much to offer!

This site is exactly what I have been looking for! I have four children within five years of age and they can all play your games! I love that you can choose your level of difficulty. The games are colorful and simple, not cluttered like some. The instructions are easy to understand and they cover basic learning that can be neglected with other “too busy” games. I can’t believe what a blessing it is to have stumbled upon this site! I looked up “kindergarten math games online.” This is the first one that I actually enjoyed navigating around in and that actually kept the kids’ attention without discouraging them.

This site will be a daily part of our learning! The kids were fighting over who could take the next turn at the learning game! It is reinforcing everything I am trying to teach.

Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) Salary

Job Description for Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP)

A speech language pathologist (SLP) works with adults and children having some difficulty with speech or processing language properly. Their patients may have problems related to motor and physical skills, as well as cognitive issues affecting the ability to express language. A speech language pathologist’s patients may range from those seeking help with stuttering or disfluency to those suffering from more serious difficulties such as aphasia (the inability to articulate any speech).

Many of the patients seen by speech language pathologists are children or adolescents facing development roadblocks in language articulation; a teacher or parent may have identified some impediment, delay or other articulation disorder. Many times, a pathologist works with family members to understand potential causes and resources to devise strategies to assist the patient. However, speech language pathologists may also work with adults – including older adults – suffering from neurological injury or other difficulties that may result in severe speech problems that affect the understanding and expression of language.

Speech language pathology generally requires an undergraduate degree in a relevant field, as well as a graduate degree in speech pathology and board certification and licensing. Most speech language pathologists work in specialized speech clinics, although they may work in medical centers and hospitals as well.

Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) Tasks

  • Administer hearing, speech and language evaluations, tests and examinations to patients.
  • Evaluate hearing, speech and language test results, medical background to diagnose and plan treatment for speech, language, fluency, voice and swallowing disorders.
  • Develop, implement and monitor treatment plans for problems such as stuttering, delayed language, swallowing disorders and or voice problems, adjust treatments accordingly.

Pay by Experience Level for Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP)

Learn Arabic #islam, #islam #online, #learn #arabic, #arabic #courses, #online #arabic



Don t you wish you could understand the Qur an directly? In Arabic? Without translation? Free live training reveals how to read Arabic in 21 short days!

How many times have you asked, “Why is learning Arabic so hard even though it’s supposed to be easy?”

A few? A dozen? At least once?

And how many times have you found an answer that actually gives you hope in your own ability to master it?

Exactly. Because HERE is your answer.

If you’re looking to understand the Qur’an when you stand in prayers this upcoming Ramadan, you NEED to attend this free web-class.

It’s free AND packed with more than an entire YEAR’S worth of university Arabic.

Yes, because Arabic has a CORE and CENTRAL theme that can be taught in an incredibly short period of time.

Knowing this CORE puts you head and shoulders above other students who spend YEARS studying the language as a series of disconnected rules and long lists of words.

Did you know that the majority of meanings in Arabic don’t even come from words.

1. Vowels
2. Patterns
3. grammatical structures

In this free web-class, you will learn how to master the core of how Arabic ACTUALLY works by focusing on the MECHANISM that governs the conveyance of “Non-word meanings”.

What in other languages requires separate words to communicate, Arabic does it through single vowels, entire configurations of vowels (what we call patterns) and grammatical structures.

That is, the WAY in which words are combined together results in meaning ABOVE AND BEYOND the meanings you get from the individual words.

I’ll share with you:

> How to END low motivation and eliminate confusion surrounding the language.

> The NEW way to master vocabulary without tedious memorization

> How to reduce the entire language into just two issues: “sequence not determining grammar” and the “lack of ‘is issue.

> How the Arabic language RESOLVES these two issues through two VERY SIMPLE solutions that can be summarized in a sentence each.

> Plus a whole lot more

It’s hard to keep your enthusiasm for learning high when you’re continuously taught the basics again and again.

Told to memorize endless lists of vocabulary

And taught rules that you really don’t understand and have no earthly idea of why they’re even important

Or how they can ever lead to a better understanding of the Qur’an and Hadith

While one, two or more Ramadans come and go and you’re still stuck at the same level. Year after Year.

That’s what this system is designed to help you avoid.

Learn how to dive straight into the core of the language and focus on the aspects that matter the most.

> Be exposed to what TRULY makes Arabic superior and unique and become emotionally connected so you never give up

> Learn in a way that FEEDS your natural desire to learn and keeps you ENTHUSIASTIC

> Get a complete BIG PICTURE understanding of the entire language so new rules instead of overwhelming you actually excite you because you can see HOW they tie into the big picture

All you gotta do is register here and then show up on the live training.

Then click the link below and register for this free training today.

Join me and let me show you a one-of-a-kind approach that s working really, really well.

How to travel the world on the cheap – Fluent in

#travel world

How to travel the world on the cheap

by Benny Lewis

Today I ve written a guest post on Get Rich Slowly about How to learn a foreign language without spending a cent . Check it out for a list of my favourite free resources as well as a generally great website that J.D. Roth runs for saving money and spending it wisely.

That post is necessary to remind people not to throw money at the problem of finding good language learning resources. As I said in that post, travel is not necessary for reaching great levels in a foreign language. But ultimately you may want to travel to practise your target language, while you discover a new culture.

Now, a question I get asked frequently is how to travel without spending a fortune, especially considering how I ve been doing it for over a decade. While it s very hard to travel for free (but certainly not impossible; I ve met many who do), if you follow these tips you will actually find that living a nomadic life is cheaper than the budget required by most people for a settled life.

As counterintuitive as it sounds, my experience tells me that the vast number of people travelling long term need way less money than their friends back home who complain that they can t afford to do it. There are other reasons you may not wish or be able to travel (family, work responsibilities, health issues etc.), but I will not stand for it when people say they are too poor to travel, especially when they come from a developed country.

Graham Hughes 20 tips for how to travel the world on the cheap

This video was made by Graham Hughes, who is on a very interesting journey to visit every country in the world without flying . He knows his stuff, so this video is as good a reference as anything I could make myself! You ll get 20 excellent tips with explanations in the video. In summary they are:

Avoid expensive countries, travel light, purchase a decent guidebook, bring a laptop, unlock your mobile phone, get some decent travel insurance, bring a debit card, look for mega cheap flights, be creative, blag a student card, overland it, sneak in, have a good story, eat street food, drink with the locals, avoid countries that demand visas, bargain and bargain hard, don t get ill, no souvenirs, couchsurfing .

For mega cheap flights, I d recommend skyscanner. as I ve gotten very cheap rates by searching through them in the past (and they ve even interviewed me on their site !)

My own extra additions to travel cheap

Graham s tips are excellent and things that many long term travellers eventually figure out. I would however add a few to them myself, as follows:

  • Use the local equivalent of Groupon

If you do need to spend money on something, or feel like treating yourself then find out what the local equivalent to groupon or Livingsocial is. These sites are growing quickly in many countries.

You can get promotional gym memberships for a week to help you stay in fit on the road, get cheap nights out in otherwise expensive restaurants, get tours and all sorts of other offers.

Some countries have their very own sites for these kinds of offers, so use forums or ask locals what sites they use (these sites are new and may not be common knowledge in some places yet). While I was in Turkey, for example, I subscribed to the daily email from şehir fırsatı and Yakala .

There s a good reason this tip is not likely to be on most travel-tip sites: the offers are of course written in the local language. This brings me to the most important tip that this whole blog is based around:

  • Learn to speak understand the local language

I m sad when I don t see this one listed by so many travel bloggers as such a huge money saver, but unfortunately many of them travel just with English and don t realise how much they can save by putting in a little effort, getting over their fears and speaking the target language from day one .

For example, thanks to haggling in the local language (Portuguese ), I rented an entire penthouse apartment in Rio with a 270º panoramic view of the city and paid less than what I used to pay to live in a studio in Dublin as a student. It s also way easier to charm your way to better prices as you won t pay the English tax of restricting yourself to only being able to make deals with the upper class or tourist caterers that speak English (beyond signing what you need ).

  • Get help from a local (or even pay for help)

Ask at the Couchsurfing forum for your target city for the best way to get good prices. When there, ask the person who works at the hostel/hotel/your landlord/your host for their best tips on getting a good experience without spending much or any money. Sometimes the best tips aren t in guidebooks or Google-able, but are known only by people who live there.

If you re really stuck, then why not just pay a local to solve your problems for you. It may work out way cheaper in the long run!

  • Travel slower

If it isn t for a traditional vacation, why do people have to charge through countries in just a week (or less)? I have very little interest in quantity, and have the least number of countries covered out of any traveller I know who has been on the road for more than a year (I ve been to about two dozen countries so far, compared to about 100 or more by other long term travellers).

Screw your bucket lists take it easy and appreciate each country! When you do this you can live as a local in so many ways and save a LOT of money. I rent apartments or rooms all the time, and pay as little as locals with long-term rent in many cases if I stay around 2 or 3 months. I also find great cheap places to eat and other cheap activities in my own time and go through all other tips given here to get used to avoiding the expensive black-holes for money.

If you re clever you can find a way to live there while earning money (see the link at the end of the article). It s not as hard as you think if you can do your job on a computer or don t mind teaching a little English.

When you do this you also start to appreciate local life on another level and see beyond the stereotypical superficial images of a country. It also helps to learn the local language if you are going to be there beyond a week or two.

  • Give up or drastically reduce smoking and drinking

The only thing I disagree with in Graham s list is drink with the locals . I d replace it with socialise with the locals. No excuses that you re too shy .

I go out to bars and nightclubs as much as many people, but I save tonnes of cash by just buying one Orange Juice or a Coke or water. I am amazed to tell you that many long term travellers I ve met have told me that alcohol represents over 50% of their budget. I don t drink and I can tell you that life is just as much fun. And I ve also needed tens of thousands of dollars less than a drinking traveller would over the last decade.

If you smoke, wake up to the bloody 21st century knowledge of tobacco effects and stop giving yourself and others potential lung cancer or other breathing issues. Giving up is hard, but you owe yourself and your bank balance to not have this totally unnecessary, disgusting and stupid drain on it.

Other tips

I ve touched on this topic before when I suggested that you don t have to be rich to travel the world. giving more hints about earning money on the road and tips like eating less meat and cooking more at home. (I m vegetarian ; this has contributed to me being able to afford to travel for so long).

If you have other tips, make sure to let us know in the comments below! Thanks for reading
