In 11 days I will be moving to Phuket, Thailand to begin my TEFL training. For those of you who don’t know TEFL stands for Teach English as Foreign Language which is exactly what I hope to be doing in a few months. The course is 120 hours that will teach me how to approach language as a secondary language. By the end of the course I will know how to approach teaching English to those who speak a completely different language and use a different alphabet. Although I am taking the training course in Thailand, the TEFL course certifies me to teach English in any foreign language country. For anyone debating traveling the world, obtaining a TEFL certification is key if you plan on teaching.
The first month of life will be incredibly difficult. I will be living at the Aspery Hotel in Phuket which is here, right off the beach. My hotel is located right off the beach as is my training facility. After Phuket, I will be attempting to find a job in either Bangkok or Chaing-Mai. But between now and then I have pretty rigorous training to complete and an adventure to start.
The countdown has begun and I am incredibly excited/nervous to start this new journey. Please feel free to leave any questions or comments you may have and I hope my blog can offer some insight into Thai life.
Lots of love,
