Teaching in Kuwait City
Not a bad choice according to Alexis Fletcher on The Teacher Port Blog

New FCE exam: Essay Writing
In case you didn't know, the FCE exam has changed and now part 1 of the writing is an essay. In other words your students will have to write an essay. Here's some useful worksheet material from Alex Case based on Writing Essays
Massive fan of this blog, so I was intrigued to find out what the most popular posts were, and also how many reads they had. Check out Top Read's of the Year

Why teach TEFL?
If you're considering taking up TEFL then there's a decent post on the i-to-i tefl blog

. I'd like to add that if you're lucky you can gather a decent collections of pens and pencils that students leave on the floor, and now and then a new pencil case.
That's all for this month.
