Before completing your course, what were your aspirations for teaching once you had your TEFL certificate?
In college, I was always very interested in traveling on a budget. One of my plans during college was to always visit Asia. When I researched English programs in Asia I found that Korea would be the perfect match for me.
After deciding where I wanted to teach, I started to do research on which would be the right TEFL course for me. After rifling through various reviews of different TEFL courses, I found that ICAL was the best fit for me, mainly due to my hectic schedule. ICAL paired me with my own tutor Scott, who was very knowledgeable, friendly, and aware of my weird schedule.
How has your life changed since you completed your TEFL course?
Right now, I’m in the process of applying to the EPIK program in Korea. I hope to be on my way in March.
How are you using your TEFL certificate?
I will be using my TEFL certificate to teach English in South Korea. I’m also exploring the possibility of teaching in Japan, or Europe!
For current TEFL students, do you have any tips or advice for once they have their TEFL course?
If you’re currently taking a TEFL course and wish to teach in Asia, make sure you understand how to make a lesson plan!
