The glamour of being an English teacher may be inviting,for instance, chilling with shakespeare and having tantilizing book club meetings discussing "fifty shades of grey" with nelson mandela, i think you should probably keep your options open...."***MoMo***

Thanks

Hi, I'm very glad to have found your site, as I will be studying an English teachers course, so have brushed up on my own grammar, and want to test myself. This will also remind me of what it was like to learn English, and to appreciate how my future students will feel when I test them. Have to be relevant.
