Release Date Confirmed for World’s First Full-length Tefl Documentary
“Talking TEFL”, the world’s first full-length documentary on TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), is set for world DVD release on 17 March 2008.
Produced by independent filmmaker Daniel Emmerson and sponsored by TEFL.net, the documentary film uses Poland, Thailand and Slovakia as primary case studies while exploring today’s global TEFL industry.
“We shot over fifty hours of footage and interviewed numerous teachers about their experiences all over the world,” explains Emmerson. “The final 60-minute production offers a detailed insight into the international TEFL industry and the responsibilities and requirements of ‘native’ and ‘non-native’ English teachers, as well as features on TEFL and travel, tips and advice, and exclusive footage from CELTA and SIT/TESOL teacher training courses.”
