The good news is that I have just passed Threshold 3 on my TEFL course. It was hard work with the added stress that you only get three attempts. I passed on my second attempt. The tutor needed me to revisit four of the questions and think about them again, which obviously I did.
So onwards as I only have 30 days left to finish the course.
Of course this is something I'll have to refer to regularly
One step back. I didn't get offered the job in Shanghai. Don't know the details yet. I'm a bit suspicious that they thought I was applying for a social science post. I'll have to wait till the agent is back at work. But that hasn't stopped me from applying for other work in China.
