What is a TEKA course? A TEKA course is a specialized course for teaching English to kids in Asia. It was created by ESLinsider.
How does a TEKA course compare to a TEFL or TESOL course?
TEFL and TESOL courses are "general" courses for teaching English as a foreign language or second language. They also tend to focus more on teaching adults and lack the specifics to effectively teach children.
Why take a TEKA course?
Based on my experience teaching English in East Asia. I would say that the "majority" of the jobs out there are focused on teaching children aged 5-13 years old.
Before I taught English in Taiwan (my first country) I took a TESOL course and that course hardly prepared me for the challenges that layed ahead.
That course was more theoretical.
What I needed was something more practical, action based and complete with concrete classroom management skills.
