Time for a new journal entry I believe...
Well, my ideas and plans keep evolving and changing. Does this happen to you?
I think maybe it's to do with the fact that I am already in the foreign country I would like to teach so I keep going somewhere and thinking "OOOH I could get a job here!" I also have to keep my boyfriend in mind because I can't just say "He we're moving to Vietnam!" I don't think he'd come....haha
I was a little bit heart broken today when I went up to the local shop in this small town and there was a "Clases de Inglés" (English Classes) flyer in the window. I pray it's not in the Town Hall here because that's where I wanted to start out teaching. I have no transport and I can't go and do it in some other town, aaah I need the money. Alas I still have my course to complete so hopefully it will work out.
But yes so as I was going to say...I think I may go to Madrid and teach, I love the idea of working for Vaughan Systems. I thought it would be a nightmare for a tefl certified, inexperience, degree-less girl like me to get a decent job there so I didn't consider it until I went there on the weekend and upon returning I did some research and it seems I do have options. Just remember, and ALWAYS remember if you don't try you don't know!
You can never really imagine what a place is like until you go there and you may have no desire to ever go to Italy for example but if you have never been there you can't be sure you wont love it. For me I thought "Madrid!? naah, it's too big for me. I'm used to rural life I'll get lost!" but Madrid doesn't feel that big. It's more impersonal than smaller cities but it still has a friendly safe feel to it, unlike London for example.
So do you understand all my rambling, the point I am trying to get across? Thank god for that! I'm not saying it again...
So if you have worked in Madrid let me know, good or bad experiences, any advice? Have you worked with Vaughan Systems?
Thanks, Chloe :) x
