Chicago, IL, April 01, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- TEFL Institute, the premiere TEFL/TESOL certification training center, has created country specific Facebook group pages for alumni and perspective students to connect with each other.
The Facebook pages allow TEFL alumni from all over the world to make lasting connections and stay in touch with a global network of TEFL alumni and friends. The pages also create a forum for those individuals thinking about taking the industry standard 120-Hour TEFL teaching course.
“Our students and alumni are extremely tech savvy, they navigate the Internet and social networking sites in an efficient manner,” said Bruce Jones, Vice President of Marketing for TELF Institute. “Because our students are hungry for knowledge and adventure, these country specific pages will act as a forum for people to sound off on teaching strategies, traveling and adventure ideas.”
The TEFL Institute Facebook pages are specific by country. All the major international markets for English teachers have been covered. There are pages for China, Chile, Japan, Czech Republic, South Korea, Brazil and Thailand, just to name a few. The countries in Europe, South America and Asia that attract the most teachers are now live and ready for visitors to offer feedback, upload photos and videos and link blog urls.
TEFL students and alumni epitomize a love for international travel while also bringing education and language proficiency to many foreigners. The TEFL Institute Facebook country pages allow people on opposite sides of the world to discuss issues like teaching, obtaining visas, and traveling tips and tools. The stage is now set for old friends to reconnect that may have met through TEFL Institute, a mutual employer or while making their way across the world. TEFL Institute realizes it is easy to lose touch, but it is also easier than ever to reconnect and catch up.
Those thinking about taking the 120-Hour TEFL course to become a certified English teacher can also learn from and interact with people that have successfully graduated from the TEFL Institute. Interested visitors can read feedback on everything from the courses’ difficulty level, to the current weather temperature in Portugal, and even the availability of World Cup tickets in 2010.
“We are happy to provide this medium to our alumni and are excited about the next generation of TEFL instructors being able to learn about the economic and cultural opportunities that await them overseas,” said Jones.
