TEFL – a day in the life
I was teaching English to a few 13 year old’s the other day. It was the last class of the day, around 6pm and these kids have probably been learning since 8 or 9am. Motivation was running a little low, to say the least.
I was trying to communicate to them why it was so important for them to focus and learn English. I took the angle of drawing out a pie chart. Showing more than half the world speaking English – the language they were learning, and a small chunk speaking Korean – their native tongue.
I explained, if they wanted to travel or work internationally or even in higher positions in Korea, they’d need to understand some English.
Teaching English as a second language..
If you are a native English speaker, you’ve already won a lottery you may not know of. The opportunity to travel around the world and teach English abroad. It pays great, and it’s an extraordinary experience.
