I had wanted to travel overseas ever since I was a child. My parents had taken me on a trip to China with them when I was eight years old, and I have had the travel bug ever since. I went on several more trips with them, and I knew that I would not be content living in just the United States. I have always wanted to be a teacher as well, so I decided to mix my two passions by applying to the TEFL Academy. I knew that I would be able to ace the course because I always do well when I put my mind to something.
I had looked at several different options, but I knew from the beginning that TEFL Academy was going to be the choice I made. I was able to have all of my questions answered just by looking at the website, and I learned some answers that I was not even aware that I was looking for. I wanted to make sure that the course that I was taking was going to be an approved qualification because it would do me no good if no one would hire me once I completed the course.
It is definitely approved by the United States Dept of Education, which made me feel good. It is also recognized throughout the world. I knew that there were so many opportunities waiting for me now with this, and I was excited to get started. There was so much support, and I am so excited to finally be doing something that I love. I have been teaching English as a second language here in Thailand for nearly two years now, and I honestly could not be happier. I am teaching others, and I am getting to see the world too!
