    If the police were standing in front of a crowd, they'd tell them to back off. If you were retreating from a position you had held in a meeting, you'd back down.

    Re: about TESOL Certificastion

    The main thing is to check on how useful the course is- there are many courses being offered that are basically bits of paper. Check that it is genuinely internationally recognised. The CELTA course is one of these- you can use it anywhere. If you're thinking of a particular course, let me know and I'll have a look into it. I did ESL courses with people like International House and the British Council, who are universally known and respected.

    PS- Check the Scare up thread- I've added to it.
