Chalkboard is i-to-i's TEFL community.
It is currently still in testing phase which could mean you find the odd bug!
Q: What is i-to-i Chalkboard? A: It's the online community of TEFL specialists
I am a mum of one gorgeous son, who has emigrated to Australia last year. I have worked and travelled all over the world as a Chemical Engineer, specialising in the Electronic Sector. I did teach english as a foreign language in England to little Spanish Kiddies for two months and found it thoroughly enjoyable, however that was quite a number of years ago !!!!!! So I have just enrolled for the 140 hour combined and on line course, and cannot wait until I get started. When I hopefully successfully complete the course, well the sky is the limit, I would love to teach in so many different countries. and I in turn would be learning about other cultures, and lifestyles, and pick up basic words in other languages.
I guess I have come to a new start in my life, and that is why I am doing the course. My best friend is also a teacher and is TEFL accredited, we could travel together. I am looking forwaed to the challenge of the course and what it leads onto in the future.
Well new update as of end of February, getting through the course quite well, find I ned to be hard on my self at times to make time to sit and settle myself, and other times I find myself on a roll !!!
I successfully completed the 2day on site part of the course and enjoyed it very much, also completed the long tedious grammar section, and over the past two days two specialised modules were completed and pased at the first attempt which I was thrilled with.
I am still unsure what direction I am going to take but I guess destiny may take a role in this for me, and when the time is right to make a move I will know. God knows where I will end up.
I have made some lovely friends here through the chalkboard, and its good to chat to like minded people, and learn from their experiences.
Anyhow I will keep the head down and hope I keep going strong.
My son was in touch with me yesterday, he is doing well, and is so proud of his "mammy" doing this course, which will keep me motivated.
See my recently posted blog, yes I am pleased and delighted to say I have passed my 150 hr course and now can relax !!!!!!!!! and take time to decide what I want to do now that hopefully more choices will be open to me.
I wish everybody else still on the study path to keep going and by all means contact me if they wish so, It can be lonely at times at 11pm studying and trying to work something out.
Goodluck to everybody
