  1. Does anyone need help with their English pronunciation - RP (Received Pronunciation) or the Queens English? I have helped many students in China over the past 5 years improve their spoken British English, as well as obtaining IELTS Band Scores of 6.5 and higher (many Chinese Training Schools only seemed to manage a Band 5.5 Final Score!). I also helped improve their 'Business English', I have Teacher access to English 4 Hotels & Resorts Also 'English 4 IT', and 'English 4 Accounting' , as well as 'Medical English' Noticed there is now , which is all the above, on one Website (need to ask Larry, about getting Teachers access to that)? 85 Units Available in 5 Subjects Office IT Tourism Accounting Medicine
  2. Background: CELTA is considered the most valuable certificate for teaching English as a second language. Contrary to the information in another (locked) thread, CELTA isn't offered in The Philippines, I believe. However the cheapest CELTA course in the world is reputed to be just over in Bangkok. http://www.ihbangkok.com/page/81-international_house_bangkok_prestigious_english_school_in_bangkok_celta_th.html. They charge $1600, or $2100 for full room and board. Like the website says, not everyone necessarily passes.
  3. Some foreigners visiting or living in the Philippines have been lead to believe that the local languages of Cebuano and Tagalog do not have gender words. This is not true. There are many words in Cebuano and Tagalog which are gender specific. And, like in English there are words which can be either gender. To me, it wouldn't seem practical to have a language that doesn't have words which refer to a male or female. Can you imagine this happening? You heard that your mother just had a baby so you call to ask her about the baby. "Hi mom, how are ? I'm fine. What does your baby have between it's legs?" Remember, there are no words for boy or girl. What kind of language would that be? Well, I knew that couldn't be true so with the assistance of a Filipina, I made a gender words list that foreigners can use when trying to learn the local languages. I also attched a link to the list where you can translate words for yourself. Gender Words Translated.docx
