Interview with Thomas, TEFL Org Online Courses Manager

Last week on Facebook Live we interviewed Thomas, our Online Courses Manager!

Thomas holds an MA in Education, an Advanced Diploma in Applied Linguistics, and a Trinity Diploma for teaching English as a Second Language as well as a TEFL certificate. He has been teaching English for 26 years mainly in Europe – in particular, Spain – and teacher training for 15 years.

We asked him some questions about his career and what advice he has for first-time EFL teachers. Check out some clips from the interview below!

Thomas explains the three qualities that make a good EFL teacher!

“I was really nervous the night before” – Thomas describes the experience of being in the classroom for the first time.

“The classroom TEFL courses bring the online course to life” – Thomas explains how the online and classroom courses complement each other and what you can expect from one of our classroom courses.

We’re often asked the question, ‘Am I too old for TEFL?’
