Poet''s notes:

Many people, after only a few minutes of online research, become extremely frustrated with all the different acronyms used in the field of ELT (That's an overall acronym to describe the industry - English Language Teaching).  Especially confusing are the various acronyms used to denote initial teacher training programs and certificates. -

I was a teacher of English, Mark, and I still feel the occasional twinge of pain all these many years later. And that was trying to teach it to (supposedly) native speakers. If you haven't done so, and if you get the chance, you might check out my blog "The wonderfully awful English language and how does anyone ever learn to speak it??
