Whoa! I did it again 🙂
I know that it’s been over a month since my last entry, but I have (somewhat) a good reason. These TEFL classes overseas are grueling!
The sights are at least nice, but that is not the main reason for my visit to Koh Samui, Thailand 🙂
I have mentioned several posts ago that I would love the opportunity to teach overseas and now I am learning how to teach – while overseas.
The class is normally a month long, but for this month we only have 3 weeks. And the first week….intense is an understatement!
I do like how active and hands on the course is though. It’s just so much information at once! It’s taking me some time to really process all that I am learning. And on top of being in a different country – that part hadn’t dawned on me until a few days ago!
I would love to stay in Thailand a bit longer. At least until the end of the year, but since I do not have a BA, my options of truly teaching overseas are limited. So now I’m thinking of giving Spain or Cambodia a try, or head back to the states and teach privately.
I also had a thought of volunteering once a week somewhere back home too. To gain some teaching experience and a demo portfolio for those interested in me privately tutoring them.
Also, I have been interviewing via Skype for online jobs too. I have one more interview this Monday (or technically Tuesday because of the time zone – lol).
First, I have to pass this TEFL course! It’s either a pass or fail system, with a chance to have a merit attached to your pass status.
So wish me luck everyone and I’ll see you soon!
(currently working on a few one shots to share with you all in the next few days)
