Headline "Isn't it a bummer when the timing's off?"
** You know the sort of thing...
------------------------------------------------------------

You've looked for an opportunity to do something for months or years, even saved up for it.

Then the possibility of finally  ticking that box on your life's to do list comes up.

But sadly, the timing's off. ...you're getting married that week...or you can't get off work just then... or that's the week you've booked your holidays...

I'm sure you know what I mean.  It's happened to me as well.

So what's this got to do with Oxbow?

Well year after year, we come to town with our brilliant TESOL course. And each time there are many who miss out. They face disappointment because, well, they're just not available.

Maybe this happened to you...that's why your name's on our interested persons register...

But we don't like to think of our friends suffering in this way...so at Oxbow, we've done something about it.

Over the last year we've been working on a solution to this problem. It's almost time to pull back the curtain and reveal the results.

The best news is, because you've already  put your name forward, you'll be able to get in on a very special arrangement.

I'll let you know more about it tomorrow, but for now, just know we have your back and you're going to love what we have for you.

Oh...and to make sure it arrives in you inbox, please add me to your contacts (address book) with the link below. Otherwise it will get sucked into your promotions or junk mail. Thanks.

Catch you tomorrow,

Wendy

In the meantime there's a teaser here. (http://tinyurl.com/q78b6bx)

If you're sick of wading through grammar books slogging away at learning grammar rules, sitting up late, bored to tears, forgetting half of it anyway...just to teach someone to speak English....or...if you're tired of studying for hours on end your chosen target language only to forget almost all (surveys show up to 85%) of what you learn...then this may be the most important email you'll read all year.

Headline "Ready for the big reveal?"
** Not long now, and we're so excited...
------------------------------------------------------------

Hi*|FNAME|*

Yesterday I let you know we've
been working on the problem of limited
access to the Oxbow TESOL course.

Did you check out the video link?

Today I pull back the curtain with some details.

So the big news is....

We've created an ONLINE version of this dynamic
Oxbow TESOL Certification course.

Now available to anyone at any time.

It's called FLASHstart TESOL and has the same
content as the Oxbow face to face version.

That is, one third is dedicated to the unique Oxbow self guided language learning technique of Mindbranding.

The remaining two thirds are all about
how and what to teach in the classroom.

You learn how to have zero preparation time
and how to become an exciting and motivating teacher
and much, much more.

Click to see it for yourself. (https://www.flashstart-language-tools.com/)

GREAT NEWS...

For a limited time, early adopters can take advantage
of a special introductory offer.

Until Jan 30, we're offering this course for under half price making it the lowest cost ever for this TESOL course.

Check it out here (https://www.flashstart-language-tools.com/?p=1236) .

But there's more good news regarding
pricing, which isn't mentioned on the website.

It applies if you get a group of 10 together to
take the course.

You'll be blown away by this.

Tomorrow.

Thanks for reading,

Wendy.

Are you scared stiff of your first day on the job?

Subject line "My friends laughed when I told them I was going to teach Chinese..."


** Well..I'd only been learning for a year...
------------------------------------------------------------

Hi*|FNAME|*

After taking the Oxbow TESOL course my husband decided he'd like to learn Chinese. Never before had either of us expected we could master this difficult language.

Little did I know that in a little over a year, I'd be teaching Chinese to a group of keen learners.

But I'll get to that in a minute.

Click to see it for yourself. (https://www.flashstart-language-tools.com/)

I took the course myself because I had teaching English overseas on my life's to do list.

That's all.  I wasn't particularly fussy about I how I got certified. But it was there on my list, then the opportunity came up. Oxbow was coming to town.

Since I don't like to let opportunities slip by, I decided to sign up. This meant getting on a plane and flying over 1000 klms (650 mls) to Sydney, Australia.

What I learned there got me so fired up, I flew home in a hurry to share with my man what I'd seen and learned.  Next thing, I was putting together an Oxbow event myself, one that my husband could attend.

The rest is history. In less than a week after his finishing the course, we decided to take on the Chinese language and start our volunteer education work in the Chinese field.

Over the years I've tried to learn other languages, German, Spanish - with little success. So what was so different about this time?

I had a strategy. A strategy that takes away the pain of language learning. I learned it at the Oxbow TESOL course.

Pain?  If you've tried to learn a second language, you probably know what I mean.

The pain of going over lists of words that fail to stick.

The pain of forgetting what you've learned when you need it...in a conversation with a native speaker of your target language.

The pain of paying big money for classes where the teaching is so bad, it's all you can do to keep from falling asleep.

Anyway...the pain goes away with FLASHstart (Oxbow online) TESOL.

FLASHstart TESOL teaches a simple self guided language learning technique that combines 10 different methods synergistically.

So instead of pain, you'll experience excitement, satisfaction & reassurance.

Now, yesterday I told you about some exciting private news for early adopters. Well, here it is...

For a limited time, we are offering a group price.  Get a further $100 per person reduction when 10 - 12  sign up together.

Details here (https://www.flashstart-language-tools.com/?p=1479)

Remember - until Jan 30, FLASHstart TESOL for individuals is under half price!

Check it out here (https://www.flashstart-language-tools.com/?p=1236) .

But you're probably wondering about how I got to teach Chinese when I was just a newbie myself....

Well I became an Oxbow Intern and found a group of friends that wanted to learn some basic Chinese. I had all the tools necessary from my TESOL course, so we got to work for 12 weeks.

By the end of that program, some (the ones who followed through with the exercises) were using what they learned to help Chinese speaking people in their locality.

You're gonna love this course...if you want to teach or learn a language...this is a must have.

Subject Line "Is Teaching English Profitable?"
** We've heard of $80 per hour.
------------------------------------------------------------

Hi*|FNAME|*

To answer the question properly, it really depends on where you teach.  But in China right now $40 - $80 per hour is a reality for some.

In other countries it's less. But then if you're living there the cost of living is lower. It's possible to support yourself without having to fly home and work like a navvy for 3 solid months to finance your next stint overseas.

TESOL is an industry worth billions of dollars.

It can help you reach your goals.

** Knowing how to teach yourself a language empowers you to help others learn to speak English.
------------------------------------------------------------
According to Lin Lin, Associate Professor, Foreign Language College, Chinese University of Political Science and Law, Changping, Beijing..
"Nowadays, it is more important for students to improve their oral and listening ability. It’s high time we remedied the phenomenon of “deaf English” and “dumb English” (when students can read, but cannot speak English fluently, or understand what people say). Some students said their vocabulary was probably larger than that of some native speakers, but they could not express themselves in English. After ten years’ English learning, they were still “deaf and dumb.”  (Italics ours)

"Subject Line "Ever suffer from stage-fright?"
** Or avoided it through good preparation?
------------------------------------------------------------

Hi*|FNAME|*

If you've ever had to give a public presentation, you'll know the importance of good preparation.

After all Preparation and Planning Prevents Poor Performance is an adage I'm sure you've heard before. It applies in the classroom too.

That's why many TESOL teachers spend many hours preparing for their classes. They don't want stage fright. Some spend as much time out of the classroom working as they do in the classroom. Time they don't get paid for.

Oxbow saw this was a problem for many teachers so set about to fix it. Now instead of working 40 hours / week in a 20 hours / week teaching job, you can have the extra time doing the things that matter most in your life.

Click to see it for yourself. (https://www.flashstart-language-tools.com/)

How did we do this? We've prepared the class plans already. You receive 5 done-for-you class plans that you can use as is, or mix and match, as much as you like.

Just one of the benefits of the FLASHstart Online TESOL course, now available no matter where you live in the world.

And for a limited time you can access this for less than half price. Don't miss out!

Sign Up Here (https://www.flashstart-language-tools.com/?p=1236)

Thanks for reading,

Wendy.

Did you read a grammar book in order to learn to speak?
Of course not...children absorb the order (grammar) of how words are put together in a sentence long before they ever learn to read. You can do the same.

Don't make your language learning about studying grammar books.

Don't take your English grammar text book into your classroom. Teach your students to absorb the grammar, not study rules.

FLASHstart TESOL will show you how.

Subject Line "On a limited budget, how can you afford language teachers?"

** Language teachers can cost a bomb...
------------------------------------------------------------

Hi*|FNAME|*

Have you ever signed up for a course in your target language?

"For what you pay, the teacher was terrible"...Griffith University English student from Saudi Arabia

"I don't remember much of what I learned in the course, by the time I got to Japan, I still couldn't converse with my new relatives" ... Vicki K. Japanese student from Australia

These comments are typical of many we've heard over the years about the outcome of language courses. These language learners would love to get results, but instead got frustration.

What's the solution?

Teach yourself!

Unless you have some strange accounting system, you won't get a bill for it. You won't have to attend classes that are set to the teacher's convenience. You won't have to pace your learning according to the other class members. You can learn when and where you want.

But how? Where do you start? What books should you buy?

All good questions. And all answered in the FLASHstart TESOL course which has fully one third content all about it. How this impacts on your teaching English is also very interesting.

Experience the excitement of getting started when you're ready instead of having to save up for the class first.

You'll find it's a relief to go at your own pace and not have to keep up with impatient learners who want to blaze ahead.

See how relaxing it can be to cruise along slowly if you want to - no pressure.

Self guided learning is the way to go - FLASHstart shows you how.

If you're struggling with a foreign language right now, jump on board while the price is still greatly reduced.

You'll never be the same again!

Thanks for reading,

Wendy.

The brain is like a muscle. Use it and it stays supple and strong. Ignore it and you find it shrivelling away to nothing.

Language learning uses many different parts of the brain. When studying new words, movement and rhythm will stimulate more areas of the brain.

Result? You'll remember more of what you're learning.

Set your brain ablaze with FLASHstart.

Subject Line "Do you have a plan or are you knitting yourself a parachute? 2nd last email..."
** It's been said that having no plan “is like leaping off a precipice and trying to knit yourself a parachute on the way down.” ------------------------------------------------------------ ** Embarking on a new career needs a plan ------------------------------------------------------------ Hi*|FNAME|* To our new students, we'd like to say "welcome". You too will need a plan. For those still thinking about it, how do you plan to get started on your English Teaching career? Or if you're already TESOL certified, how do you plan to improve your job prospects? Many people who take a TESOL course come away with a knowledge of English but no plan for a way forward. FLASHstart (Oxbow) TESOL gives you a plan. See what one graduate had to say about that. (https://vimeo.com/147991210) FLASHstart TESOL sets you up with a guide to write a winning resume' (for our friends, this includes capturing your theocratic experience which will be useful in the classroom - we show you how). A strategy for how to get the job is also included. And what to do on your first day in the classroom. There's a plan for everything. You can still get on board for the half price introductory offer. (https://www.flashstart-language-tools.com/end-of-introductory-period-page/) But don't worry, the course isn't going anywhere...it'll still be here next month. Just a little more expensive. So if you want to do it later...or now... here's where you go. (https://www.flashstart-language-tools.com/certificates-available/) As always, our best wishes for your success. Wendy Finlayson

Hi*|FNAME|*

In less than 24 hours the special introductory price will finish.

Here's where you go to register. (https://www.flashstart-language-tools.com/certificates-available/)

Thanks for reading,

Wendy.

For language learners, the best part about the FLASHstart course is the MindBranding technique.

Explained in detail, slowly, it will empower you to take on
any language without the drudgery of studying grammar.

The natural progression is to learn to speak first then learn to write and understand grammar rules. Think of how a child learns to speak.

We help you learn to speak your target language so you can use it straight away.
