Where do I go from here?

Comments 2 Standard

Hey everyone; I thought that I would blog about my TEFLing adventures other the Zero To Hero assignments (which I am enjoying more than I thought I would). I am currently at 130 hours of my i-to-i TEFL qualification; therefore I am 10 hours over most of the job opportunities that i-to-i are advertising on the Jobs Board.

I have been sorting out my CV ready for my applications TEFL jobs; I have seen so many different examples on how to present my TEFL CV. I know that I can just add my TEFL qualification to my current CV as it is linked to Education (mostly Deaf related education though).

I have been job hunting on the i-to-i job board and I thought that doing a Summer Camp in Europe this summer to gain some teaching experience. I have printed off the information for a Summer Camp in Italy with Lingue Senza Frontiere. A part of the application I have to plan what activites to do with them using last year’s camp theme. Fantastic idea, right? However, this Summer camp involves acting. Drama is good; I like Drama but I don not have much experience in it. My colleagues at work have told me go for it; especially the Drama teachers. They tell me that I have a flair for Drama…to be honest I don’t fully believe them!

I have also seen an advert for teaching in Turkey with Teach to Travel Ltd; free housing is a plus though.

The internships in either China or Poland are what I really want to do. Poland is “Sold Out” and China is a little too close to the closing date to pay the required amount and book flights with; if you all remember the post I wrote about how much I would have to save each month to achieve the amount?! Even with my 130 hours; I will have to do an extra 20 hours in the country as a part of the internship. I am happy to do that! I am also looking into the Thailand internship.

Flight wise; I have decided, if I have enough Avios points I will travel by British Airways but if I do not I will be using Skyscanner for all my flying needs!

Zero To Hero: Day 19 – Try a New Posting Style

Today’s assignment: build your storyteller’s toolbox by publishing a post in another format or a style you’ve never used before.

I have decided to you a quote…which is the only posting format I have not done yet; I love using the “blockquote” tool in my posts. I am using them when I am catching up on my Zero To Hero posts.

I thought that I would quote about travelling; as in theory that is what I am (or will be more) blogging about. I love to meet new people and travel on public transport. I really don’t like driving my car; if I could walk, bus, train or even fly to work I would.

Zero To Hero – Catching up once again (Day 17 & 18)…

I love it that I have internet access at my current place of work; as I can post on their system…I have to find WiFi on the weekends which can be a bore sometimes. I am currently “stealing” the local Costa’s WiFi while I write this catch up post…

Day 17: Increase Your Commenting Confidence

Today’s assignment: read six posts written in response to yesterday’s prompt, and leave comments on at least two of them.

The six posts I have left comments are:

After reading those posts; my post from Day 16 seems a bit rubbish…do you all agree?

Day 18: Plug in to Social Networks

Today’s assignment: if you’re active on a social network, set up Publicize to link the account to your blog or add a widget highlighting your profile. If you’re not, explore your social options to see whether one might be helpful.

I already ‘publicise’ all my posts; I have found some new followers through Twitter and you may already see that I have a ‘plug in’ for my Facebook page for this blog. I also have added my personal Instagram account to this blog too…ooh not forgetting my Google+ page (I don’t fully understand that one yet…)
