General » NEW TESOL TEACHER TIPS
Hello,
I am soon to complete my program and expect to depart very soon. Would someone be kind and share some wisdom? Does anyone have tips and warnings for a first time overseas teacher? The program is amazing but some peer/colleague insight would be awesome.

Find a cultural center or a multilingual class that will let you shadow or assist. Network with local schools or language /refugee programs and see if they'll let you practice or view the class. Moving and teaching deserve their own steps of preparation. Do not be overwhelmed, be encouraged to learn and equip yourself to be knowledgeable about the countries /cuties/cultures of interest. Keep your fire lit and your focus and go confidently in the direction of your dreams.

General » TEACH IN SUMMER CAMPS IN ITALY, SPAIN OR CHINA
Hello Jim,
Happy new year!

I just finished my specialization exam (Tourism English)!
Spain & Italy were in my top choices to go abroad, and I was wondering how many weeks these contracts would represent and their start date?

Thanking you in advance,
Stephanie Cote

General » THREE YEARS WITH GLOBAL TESOL COLLEGE
I want to thank you so much for this post, and all the hard work you have put into Global TESOL College, providing training and being an inspiration to all of us aspiring teachers/travelers!

I started the advanced diploma course online a few months ago. After spending a month in Thailand as a volunteer English teacher, I was so inspired while over there, and realized the passion I have for teaching and making a difference around the world. Though I do find myself in doubts; questioning if I will be a good fit once I have completed my exams, or if I will find any jobs over seas at all, but this post has solidified my dream and gave me the boost of motivation I need to complete the course and go for it!

I hope to one day be able to apply my skills to the industry, as well as make Global TESOL College proud of their teachers and the training they provide for us.

Thank you again Kat! :)
