    Thumbs up Help with grammer. Im 53 and wish to teach English someday.

    Dear Foreignexpats,
    I will be coming to china early July and wish to teach English. I plan on living in china for the next several years, providing I can find employment.
    I am 53 years old male of good health and community standing here in my country, I can supply references if required.
    I have worked predominantly in coal mines throughout Queensland, Australia in several key positions eg: Trainer assessor in classroom teaching of adults in a wide range of subjects eg: from mathematics to field operations and safety in and out of the workplace. I currently specialise in all aspects of firefighting/Paramedics and rescue in all situations related to my qualifications.
    My intentions are to teach children from 4 to 16 only. Teaching adults any subject at this point in time would not be my highest priority unless the pay rate exceeded my expectations.I will forward my resume and college courses to the above email address you have provided here.
    I have applied for the following course at Charles Sturt University (CSU) Bathurst N.S.W. because of my age my acceptance into this particular course has been guaranteed
    By the school advisory council eg: Graduate certificate in teaching English to speakers of other languages. I will supply a copy of all subjects under the graduate certificate in my second email to you.

    Hi tobecomeagoodteacher, and welcome to the forum.
    Note that I have changed the title of your thread; the word is "grammar", not "crammer."
    Note also that as a country name, "China" starts with a capital letter. This is not to be confused with "china" which refers to the ceramic material.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Did you notice that most of the corrections made by teechar in post 3 and by me in this post relate to capitalisation and punctuation? If you're going to even consider teaching English, you need to ensure that your own English is up to scratch. Remember to follow these rules of written English at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with one appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    - Capitalise proper nouns (China, English, Microsoft, Shakespeare).

    On this forum, please don't try to make your own emoticons/smileys. If you really must use one, click on and choose one.

    I'm not sure what happened to teechar's title correction. It still says "grammer" but the word is "grammar".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
