I thought I would start a blog, been totally new to the TEFL world it might be advantageous to others in the future, plus it will help me chart my progress:
Well so far its day 3 and I have just began checkpoint 1 of my TEFL 140 hour course, so far I am finding it fairly straight forward using resources available via the website.
I still have one or two burning questions but these will wait until nearer the end of the course.
So far then I have learned about learning activities & classroom management, units that I think are vital to ensuring that when I get a job I won't be surprised by some of the things that happen in class, reading some of the hilarious stories on here so far does give a good grounding and prepares you for life as a teacher is really like.
I really cannot wait to get qualified and start the task of looking for jobs abroad, the intention is long term and carving out a career in this field, I think the challenge of teaching people something new is exciting and highly rewarding from a professional point of view.
Anyway here's to the rest of the course going smoothly
