TA is probably a good semi retirement job tbh, not too stressful and the hours are fairly easy. Some places might still take you on due to the age discrimination act thingy, never too late to girl it a whirl if you do fancy it.

Likewise for me, I'm hoping to become a teacher of history, preferably for Year 7 -11 classes. I'm in my first year of University at the moment (doing history), but I'm hoping to complete the PGCE course once I've graduated.

How should I reply? I'm not going to give out information involving names on this forum. I teach classes involving contemporary Chinese history for students enrolled in classes that will allow them to study at a partner university in either Great Britain or The United States. The topic of the class is Chinese History but its real purpose is to train students to be able to express themselves in English about something they know well.

I do own my own English training school here. My wife and I started it 5 years ago with one student and now we have an enrollment approaching 200 students of all ages from 2 years old to 50 and over year old adults.

My wife's concentration is upper primary school and middle school students while my own is western college bound high school students and university students wishing to transfer to a western college.

We both share duties teaching beginning and intermediate English speakers.

Thank you, Wenge. That is very interesting. Is your school in Taiwan or mainland China?

Odd. I'm working on my Masters and now probably want to
