Re: Teaching Business English with no teaching certificate

Hello there, I can understand your surprise at all the game playing! However if you change the word "game" to "drill" or "exercize" you probably would not find that unusual.

Re: NO books to teach

Hello there, I had a similar teaching situation when working for Inlingua in the past.
