Just want to say sorry to all the people who've sent me friend requests since my laptop went off to the mender.... I wasn't ignoring you! I've just now accepted them.
Thank you for the response Alix, I'm hoping to get a place onto the company just so I can start to have a "foot on ladder" with teaching English, even if it does mean having to change my style of teaching which I suppose I don't exactly have one for yet as such, i'm just hoping that I'll be able to do enough to pass so i'll be reviewing my grammar until I arrive! Thank you
Thanks so much for your advice Alix, I want to finish getting a degree eventually, Right now I just don't have the financial ability to. But I also want to travel and go for something different, hence why I wanted to do ESL work. I never thought about Ecuador but I will definitely give it some thought. Thankyou!
Hi, I had seen a Blog post on here, about teaching abroad with no degree. and They listed you as someone to speak with who has experince with this. I want to teach in China more than anything but I'm worried I wont find a legitmate school that wont rip me off because I don't have a degree. I will be taking my TEFL course soon and I want to know if its a waste of time. I don't know how to go about securing a good first job with a school that will accept me having no degree and only my tefl certificate. Do you have any advice, I want this so badly I just don't want to get stuck in something that will bite me later. Thanks! Danielle
Hi there; I seen your post via google and was wondering if you had any pointers for me? I'm about to go to Madrid next month (35 days from now) to do the two week training with Vaughan Systems and I'm a little bit nervous as this will be something big for me as i'm only 21 and i'll be in a new country and away from family. Is it hard? What do I need to focus on?
Thanks in advance,
Thanks for all the info from your Ecuador blog posts - I really enjoyed it. One question though: I'm planning on working in Quito - what are the chances that I'll find something to start working in January (I should be in the country beginning of November)? The school year seems to run from September, so it'll be the start of the second term.
was wondering if you could give me some advice on getting a job as a tefl teacher in Spain i am going to do the 120hr online tefl course hopefully in November and the 20hr practical course early next year and hoping to make a move over to Europe mid April 2013. I do have an EU passport but no degree just a diploma do u think this is going to affect me finding a job? (i do have 7 years of teaching experience behind me). if you could give me any advice it would be greatly appreciated
You are right, if others can do it, I'm sure my friend and I can find our way. I guess it's a bit different for us because we aren't just looking for 2 rooms, we are looking for a 2 bedroom apartment and we'll probably have to sign a lease or something. I've never had to look for my own apartment in English, so this is all so new to me. But hopefully I am just over worrying.
Thank you for the tips. We plan to live along line 10 or near a cercanias station because we will be needing them to get to our jobs. I got a visa through the North American Language Assistant Program.
Sorry to hear you are no longer in Madrid, are you still in Spain?
Hola Alix! I can't believe it but in 2 and a half weeks I'll be in Spain. I'm so excited!
But I've just hit a bump in the road. My friend and I will be arriving to look for a 2 bedroom apartment for just the 2 of us to share. We had someone originally who said she would help us, but she just messaged us today saying she was too busy now. We are willing to pay someone to help us out, but we can't afford to pay a real estate agent's fee of a month's rent.
I was wondering if you know of any one who can help me and my friend find an apartment in Madrid? We can look up areas and stuff, we basically need a translator who has experience renting in the city. Neither of us speaks Spanish well enough to feel comfortable finding a place on our own. We are afraid of getting scammed or asking the wrong questions.
Any help or guidance would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Hey there :)
Thanks for your encouraging comment on my blog. I 'manned up' and recently just paid for the course. I'm 120 hours away from hopefully getting my behind on a plane!
