To Dan,

Maybe it's time you start focusing on your dream. If you want to teach why not start getting certified so you can launch your career?

Best of Luck!

I am a bachelor degree holder in french. I have taught for about 18 years. Am I qualified to teach in Canada?
10/22/2014 - Marie
I am an Alberta university almost-graduate and I was just wondering how the curriculum changes abroad, specifically for English Language Arts? How much emphasis is there on my subject area in other countries? And, is there as great a focus on Canadian literature? I know the requirement here is for at least 1/3 of all texts to be Canadian, but I don't know how this transfers to international schools.
Thank you so much!

I have been tutoring English to Chinese students here in my home. I understand now what is best to use with my younger students who can read English and speak a little English, but do not understand me when I speak English. Thank you for these wonderful tips!
