Or, Pixel's misadventures in the realm of studying English. Yeap.
So, this is not exactly a traditional project, but I thought it might be interesting to post about it. Partly to share something that's going on in my life that I'm happy about, partly to ask for a little bit of help in case I need it.
You see, I haven't mentioned it very openly so far, but turns out I have landed a job. More or less. I am now an English Teacher in training. Took an exam to show what I know of the language and the people from the school liked my results - with the caveat that I have no experience and, frankly, not a clue how teach in a classroom environment. So, they offered to train me in the ways of teacher-fu; and I accepted the offer.
Along the process I also have a class, which is more of a prep group than an actual class, for this thing called Cambridge English: First
, to be taken in December. Which serves double duty to both get me in touch with formal grammar and, assuming I'm approved, grants me an actual formal certification in English; something I'll need to have in order to qualify for proper hiring, considering I never took classes nor live overseas.
Like I said, those are developments that I like. And as for help, well... Grammar? Rules? Regulations? For ME?! Are those edible?
So, basically I might post here about stuff I stumble upon that I find interesting or puzzling. But what's probably the biggest help I could get would be to simply chat around as usual, only in voice chat instead of text so I get practice talking. So, uhm, yeah. @_@
