Hi Eleanor,

i thought there was some equality act alright.

The girl(a lady in the office but not the teacher him/herself)   said that 
there would be some visual and hand movements used in the TEFL training which 
helps foreign students to learn english...it's apparently a particular of 
technique that's used to teach a language.

Maybe, if i try to find out from a teacher of TEFL, some adaptions may be made.

Thanks for your email Eleanor,

  Yes the teacher is discriminating against you and as I understand it there is 
the Equality Act 2000 in Ireland.  Did you not ask the person why you would not 
be able to do the course.  On a practical level you may require an Assistant 
Worker because if the students are doing hand-writing, it will be necessary for 
you to check their writing in class.  On the other hand if it is spoken only, 
cannot imagine why you could not do it.

    Hi Folks,

    i'm finding it hard to source some information regarding the TEFL course 
and so i am going to ask yourselves out there.

    I'm wondering if it's possible for a blind person to do the TEFL (teach 
English as a foreign language) course ? has anyone any idea ?  Does anyone know 
if a blind or visually impaired person has done this course ?

    I rang a TEFL provider about attending such a course and they told me that 
i wouldn't be able to do a TEFL course as i'm blind.  I had thought that blind 
and visually impaired people are entitled to attend any course available to 
fully sighted people.

    Sorry Paul for using this medium to ask a non computer question.
