Teaching Nobody Nowhere: The Extraordinary Autobiography of an Autistic
Don't give me the job. I don't care. Even if I wasn't working I wouldn't care. Unless it's a sweeeeet school, jus say no to da dem-mo. I'm in my first teaching job in Thailand and hadn't done a demo I've taught uni in PHL but never had to do one. I think it's really a hit or miss, but maybe the point is to get your rapport with your potential students or in some cases, teachers, employees so that you can get their nod of approval.
But seriously, Thais teach the boring shit out of students and foreign teachers are seen as edutainment. Unfortunately, neither has helped uplift the educational standards of this country, so rich parents have sent their kids to intl and private schools in the country. I worry for the future of this generation and beyond, esp that their neighbors have been making great strides. Demo classes have become more a fashion and lets join the crowd rather than an actual test to see what someone is like under pressure or their communication skills. In fact these skills can be obtained in an interview format rather than a Demo class.
I've done two demo lessons before. Failed the first, passed the second. I can see the point in them, but I realised my mistake with demo i 'failed' and did not make the same mistakes next time. Simply put, I did not ask additional questions before the demo lesson. How many students should i make this lesson for?
The reason I didn't ask for the first demo was that I 'did not want to bother them'. Their email was vague and I thought asking questions would go against me. The opposite was true on the day. The interviewer was delighted that I had asked! The demo was then a breeze and I was stopped 'mid-flow' and offered the job after just 10 minutes. Demos are fine, but make sure you know exactly what the employer is looking for beforehand. Who to ask for when you get there. You don't want to be saying, 'Please wait one moment, I'm having some technical issues' at the start of your demo.
First impressions count. The make up of your demo class. Do they want a lesson plan? I would bring one anyway. Don't be afraid to ask well before your actual demo-lesson, as failure to do so can make things really tricky on demo day if you've made a lesson for 30 pupils when they wanted a lesson planned for 50 pupils and they wondered why you never asked. I am an Elementary teacher. A graduate of Bachelor of Elementary Education last April 02, Passed the LET last March 10, But earned some benefit.
Some of my experienced in the past help me realized to pursue teaching often.. But this very moment I didn't teach but do home volunteered tutorial one on one. Based on the above information.. Demo lesson is just like a test of a newly teacher. A way to take a look in your attire, in your attention ,in your passion of teaching. Demo's contribute tention,nervous,anxiety to those who are sincere to their profession. Even you are lack of experience in teaching you can develop it while practicing your vocation.
The judgement they made only contribute embarrassment to our future teachers. Let them explore in the real situation in the world of teaching. A 30 minute demo's is so short to test the potentiality of a good teacher. Because experience is the best teacher. If they want onlythe best teacher in their school let the new one experience the nature of teaching.. What the hell if they just blinking their eyes on you while you are demonstrating your lesson. It's just contribute frustration to the newly teacher. But not all. Some are good.! Good manner is really matter. After having read the answers to the topic posted above I am beginning to understand why schools look down on many western "teachers"!
Their only interest is in getting as much money at the end of each month whilst, doing as little as possible since the last payment! Demo lessons are there to try and exclude the weeds of which there are many from the flowers. The lesson is held to establish the following - Is the applicant able to show confidence to the student? Is the applicant able to keep the class interesting? Is the applicant able to keep the attention of slow learners?

Is the applicant just babbling on at the interview stage? Many do! Does the applicant have any understanding of the subject he is teaching? For newbes, that is all you need to know and concentrate on don't, listen to some other comments, or your future written CV's will show what a useless teacher you really are, how?
By your never being offered a second contract at the same school! Maestro said: "I've got qualifications and experience out the yin-yang that I feel as if a discussion on my educational philosophy and how I would sequence a typical unit of instruction or even a days lesson would be more than sufficient. Maestro, you've already lost the attention of every employer in Thailand with your academic talk AND you've entirely missed the point of a demo lesson.

A demo lesson is designed to let your employers know how 'relatable' you are to the students and other staff. When you get to Thailand you'll quickly find out how things work! Good luck! I've got qualifications and experience out the yin-yang that I feel as if a discussion on my educational philosophy and how I would sequence a typical unit of instruction or even a days lesson would be more than sufficient.
A demo is unnatural and may have little to do with real teaching. Successful applicants will be required to follow the school's curriculum, adjust for class levels and sizes, and use and adapt its coursebooks. The time spent on a demo could be better used by an interview committee asking a wide variety of questions on the various teaching scenarios the applicant will face at the school.
I think a demo is a kind of a "show" and I wonder if employers in other countries typically ask for this in interviews or not. At Burapha Uni for The Language Centre, I had to give a 45 minute long demo which was my very first ever teaching experience as I had none. I prepared with two days notice and was extremely nervous in front of around twenty adult learners - some of which were Teachers….. The outcome was successful and the adults were pleased and felt comfortable with me which made the lesson easy to get through and I was offered part-time work from Burapha's English Lingo Centre but I had to find work outside of Burapha sadly.
I had returned to Burapha in which was great but I was unable to see Tik, the most beautiful friend I left behind - my greatest regret as I still hold feeling for this stunning beautiful Suai Suai Mak Mak Loi lady - she was the photographer at Burapha University and I still somehow have love for her after all these years…. I wish I could go back and meet her again and say sorry!!!!! I'm truly sorry my friend. I left Thailand because I knew we would love and I had to go home in case my Mum passed away as I have so much guilt mistreating my Mum when I was younger. I suggest you turn things round.
Rather than be passive, afraid and even frustrated as many of the bloggers seem to be , be pro-active: In the case of the guy who has taught his demo in a hangar, turn it down and immediately, walk straight out again and say this is not good enough, but be polite. I'm sorry I won't teach in here. I don't think your organization is professional enough. As for the judges, their qualification, their methods of evaluation. You have be able who is good enough to evaluate you and who isn't, and this comes with experience. If they are not good enough, turn it down politely. Out from schools in Thailand you will find one that is probably good enough for you to teach, I mean in every aspect.
Set your standards high and you won't be frustrated. That's fair enough, but I've been around teachers for three decades in three continents and in that time I have learned that there's room for interpretation between how good a teacher thinks he is and how good he actually is.
Further more, there is even less of a correlation to be made between teaching qualifications and teaching ability. But in the end it doesn't matter. Governments globally there are a few exceptions that include Finland have thrown in the towel with education and just left it to the free market economy to sort out. Somehow I've managed to dodge demo lessons for the most part. I've worked here at three full-time jobs, and one part-time gig, and only once did I have to do a demo lesson. I think as I get more experienced in this field I tend to look down on the whole concept of doing a demo lesson.

My favorite response so far is from AL. He flat out refuses to allow any school to evaluate his ability and performance as an English instructor Demo lessons are a crucial and invaluable way of filtering out the rubbish. Too many employers have seen the 'stars' who look good on a CV but who then crash and burn when asked to perform. Education in Thailand at every level is part of the entertainment industry. But not all schools and businesses will have thought of asking a prospective employee to perform a demo lesson.
So why not offer to do one when you apply for the job? This will go a long way to letting the employer know that you are a serious candidate for the job. Asking you to do a demo lesson suggests that the school has a pool of talent from which they can choose from, so be prepared to 'demo' like it's a kind of pageant. Straighten that tie, wear a smile and shed a tear for world peace!
Oh, it's not unheard of for employers to ask unwanted applicants to do a demo lesson as a way of politely turning them down! Sure beats the common sense approach of saying "I'm sorry, the vacancy has been filled. Involve your audience in your presentation. If you make them a part of your class they will probably warm up to you a lot more. If you are preparing to do a demo lesson, don't get caught up in the academic content of your performance.
A major part of your evaluation will be your personality and how much your audience simply likes you. The demo lesson isn't to see if you can teach - they themselves can't teach - it's to see what you look like and how you are with the students. It's no skin off their nose if you refuse to do one, that's just a reflection of how you make life difficult for yourself.
I was reading this article on my i-pad, the only Farang on a pretty full bus. How embarasing! As true as it is, I laughed so much all the Thai passengers must now be sure all westerners are mad! Thankyou so much, where can I get some more? Never done a demo lesson in 10years, But I always ask at an interview to go meet the students, and when we enter the classrooms, I start an talking to the students telling them who I am and asking them questions.
It has never failed to get the student buzzing. Then I feel I can make my mind up Do I want this job, has the students buzz given me the chance to ask for some of my terms to work there. I would never plan a lesson on any subject, be just like the rock singer just dive off the stage into the crowd and if they are interested the 'students' will catch you. No way would I ever do a 'demo' lesson.
It's dreaded only if teachers allow it to be so. My answer to this request is either 'NO' or ignore them and consider an employer who trusts me enough to trial the job for three months. Either my experience and references do the job of convincing to hire of they don't. That's the choice. I would never give in to this demand for a 'demo' lesson as I would not want to seem desperate in front of employers whom I don't know.
It's a two way street I am checking them out at the same time they are making up their minds about me. This is just a way of getting a free lessons out of a teacher. The Fool is anyone who is silliy enough to buy into this.

With so many cowboys about in the ESL how does one know what the hirer's selection criteria is anyway? If you cannot get satisfactory answers to the questions you presented in this post, do you turn down the demo and the job? This is what I'd guess you do, but worth asking. Totally agree with the article. My first demo was at an English Academy, where i was told to present a demo for mins for intermediate level.
Among the evaluators, i saw the receptionist, admin and two supposedly english teachers who definitely were not and if they were then the school should definitely have some dress code for the faculty members. All of them were asian Anyway, i checked the time and started off with the demo.
It was annoying as well as hilarious. In the end, i felt so lame, that i told them that even if they select me, i would not want to work in this school and left. It was good that i made that decision as after a week i got a job in a very good school which gave me one week training followed by 10mins demo. And so, dont worry, demos are not a big thing. After quite a few nerve racking demo lessons where the Thai students and teachers just stared at me, i decided to put the ball well and truly in their court.
Now i insist on determining the level of English, Students to be the same level or classes to the ones i will teach, and the evaluator to be an English Teacher! In over 8 years in Thailand, I've had some interesting demos to do. One, at a uni in Bkk, asked me at the last minute to prepare a reading test with reference, factual, inferential questions, etc. But I wasn't given any kind of reading passage to base my test on.
Another time, a farang non-native speaker sent me a detailed email about what to do in my demo at his vo-tech's interview of me: greetings, ice-breakers, days of the week, numbers, questions, negatives, etc. Speaking and writing in isolation? My guess is this fellow "English-teaching professional" earned his degree at Khaosan University. Demo or Demon? If the CV, and several telephone calls and at least a couple of face to face meetings is not enough, then neither will a demo.
Even with asking the correct questions and getting some form of understandable replies. You will need know no more than the set up when you arrive So for the past 3 years my reply if asked is Yes of course, my fee for my time is X and my travel allowance is I'm busy, I have a home and a car to pay for and as the saying go's NO Money NO Honey! Polite No thanks works as well. The dreaded demo lesson? Question: What are schools looking for, teachers with excellent interview techniques, or teachers with excellent classroom techniques? I say this because, and I'm sure there are others like me, I'm not the best at job interviews.
Lack a bit of confidence maybe. Put me in a classroom and I'm probably at my most confident. If schools are serious about recruiting teachers, applicants should be thrown into a classroom with students and teach. This is what happened to me with my first teaching position 7yrs ago. Around 40 students and 10 Thai teachers. I was told to teach anything I want to for around min. The proof's in the puddin'. Good at interviews maybe not so good at teaching.
Not so good at interviews maybe good at teaching. How will they have any idea without seeing you ply your trade? Interesting comments , i guess being able to comunicate with school staff and students in their native language is a huge advantage , regards , Simon,.
By mr simon george smith, bangkok , thailand 8th February It's one thing to offer, but companies and schools that normally require teachers to give two-hour demo lessons for free are asking way too much!
