Re: MES-English curriculum - Part 2
I think you may have ordered some other book. Fun Fonix is only available for printing yourself from the website: www.funfonix.com
You can print out the books or view the entire book online.
Teaching English can be very ominous. It is a huge task to try to teach someone a language. Also, from the studies I've read, it's a near impossible feat for a non-native speaker to reach native speaker levels. So, if it feels hard it's, because... it is.
A lot of positions just throw teachers into a teaching situation with very little guidance. That causes problems and sometimes the old system in place isn't good for the students there either. Textbooks and set courses are good as a foundation, but language teaching needs to meet the needs of your group. So, look to supplement what you have and make the materials more applicable or tangible to your group. Luckily, there is a ton of stuff on the internet. In the last 10 years it has really blossomed into an incredible resource for English teachers.
Just like any large task, it's important to break it down into smaller goals and then smaller goals. It's much easier to find your way.
Anyway, please feel free to post any questions you might have. We'll try to help if we can.
