General » Teaching in Shanghai after TESOL
So far I'm in my second week of teaching in Shanghai and loving it!! The people here are truly amazing...some of the kindest, funniest, caring and most accommodating people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They would do anything for me and literally have dropped everything at times to help me get settled into my job and the city. I am so humbled being here. My students are so lovely as well!! They are always SO happy to see little ol me...even walking by on campus they will go out of their way to greet me, compliment me, or even just wave with huge smiles. I've never felt so special as I do here helping them learn English! :) They all LOVE foreign teachers sooo much!! This job may be considered easy for us natural English speakers, but it is one that is very rewarding. I cannot wait to see the progress in my students. I am so proud of them all for trying

Some places that interest me include:

General » Global TESOL in Montreal Testimonial
I attended a seminar taught by Kathy in Montreal this spring and it pretty much changed my whole outlook on education as well as human interactions in general. She's very experienced as a teacher and makes the lessons very easy to comprehend. If you attend one of her seminars, you'll probably find yourself having all sorts of flashbacks to your schooling prior to Global TESOL. You'll realize you already know the difference between good and bad teaching because you've already been subjected to effective and ineffective teaching methods. Kathy unlocks this knowledge within you. She teaches you technical information developed by other teachers as well but there really isn't too much to cram. Teaching is all about confidence and she's there to get you to think about what teaching really is and program you to make use of your intuition.

I'm going to China in few days thanks to Kathy's instruction as well as Jim's placement services. I tried responding to postings on a job board but I got some sketchy responses from recruiters who wouldn't help me get a visa. Once I authorized Jim to find me a teaching position, things just fell into place.

If you get placed through Global TESOL, the recruiter working with them will know you've completed the course but they'll need your certificates to get you a visa so I recommend doing your online specialization course ASAP so as not to waste a prospective employer's time. Check your information on the site to make sure your mailing address is correct to ensure you get your certificates on time.

All-in-all: I really can't imagine why Global TESOL wouldn't be for you if you're looking to get TESOL-certified. If you want some sort of robotic, cramming-based introduction to teaching English then the front of the classroom probably isn't for you.

Thank you, Kathy! Thank you, Jim! Thanks for reading! YOUR ADVENTURE AWAITS; TAKE THE PLUNGE!

Damon
