Deportees back in Mexico offered free training to become English teachers

MEXICO CITY – A progressive initiative in Mexico City is giving U.S. deportees the opportunity to obtain English language and teaching qualifications, in an effort to help them rebuild their lives following ejection from their American homes.
An entirely free program, the joint effort between the city’s government and citizens’ council, offers a four to six week teacher training course, culminating in an official TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) exam, after which successful candidates will be qualified to teach in Mexican schools.
Tomas Perez grew up in Chicago and was deported 12 years ago. He says a teaching program would have been useful - he has lost his English completely. . . .
