If I were you I �d start with getting ready for an international exam in English. Try FCE or IELTS first. I found it really motivating myself at the beginning of my career. That helped me with my work later.

Hi Jenny, I agree with ninon100 and suggest you improve your English by taking an international exam and maybe by spending a couple of months in an English speaking country.
Did you train to be a teacher or did you just study English? Knowing the language doesn �t enable one to be a teacher, and a couple of tricks or pieces of advice on how to teach aren �t enough, I �m afraid. What sort of training do teachers get in your country?

There are two great FREE online courses (a certificate is not free though but registration and the course itself is) on Futurelearn
which can give you lots of insights.
Also check http://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/  you �ll find lots of resources, tools and advice.
