You can use this format as a template for your lessons. You can also see this same material presented in an infographic and in another video.

How's it going? I am Ian. If you found this to be helpful you can sign up for the latest updates of new blog posts and other resources that I create.

"Hi Ian! I loved the course! It wasn't really difficult, but it was not easy - and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely plan to continue using the resources. I have applied for and set up over 7 interviews already in China. If you add on various additional certs, like Young learners and what not I would take those. I plan to take a job in China and blog about it for the year to qualify for the 1000 hour cert. Thanks so much for an awesome learning experience" - Sandra Dee Bonadonna, TEFL 120

Just want to thank you guys for your awesome videos, suggestions and guidance. For quite some time I'd been looking for ideas and material to spruce my classes up, till I found you.
You saved MY day.
