I am so sorry! Please don’t hurt me!

Comments 2 Standard

I am so sorry that My TEFL Adventures has been a little bare recently. I have not been well, my laptop needed to have minor surgery and therefore I had problems accessing to the internet. A lot has been happening though; when I have been able to access the internet, I have been following new TEFL accounts – both here and on other Social Media platforms.

For example; Claire and Anthony; who run the blog – To Love, To Live, are currently on the China Internship with i-to-i TEFL and ImmerQi. There have created a YouTube channel and I have been watching their experiences. There are also on Twitter and I am following them there too! I am love hearing (and seeing) what they are both doing while on their Internship. I bet live out there is much better than it is here?!

I have also been ding a lot of job hunting in the papers; I have not found much but it seems that people are hearing about me. I had an email from i-to-i TEFL asking if I would allow them to give my details to a new contact of the organisation. Of course I agreed and I am now waiting to hear from the contact. Also I applied to Pequebabies in Northern Spain in March; I did not hear anything. I assumed I was not what they were looking for; however a couple of days ago I heard something. 53273b418303e-135x135 I was very excited as I have been working with ‘Reception’ children since September 2014 – ‘Reception’ children are aged 4 to 5 years old – I am enjoying working closely with the children. I have been looking at Spain as well as Asia to start my TEFL Adventures properly. I am now waiting to receive some answers to the questions I asked. I will keep you all posted on that front.

I cannot believe that we are almost at the year of the 2014-2015 academic year. Officially we are now in the Summer Term; however have not seen much “summery-ness” about it. All the older students I am currently working with are stressed with their exams and revision. This in turn; has made myself and the other Support Staff stressed. Because of this I am not well, which I am not enjoying one bit! I hate being ill; especially as it has gone to an awful cough.

The Holidays are now over…

Standard

Today is the 27th December and most of the celebrations are over. I have been spending time with my family; but tonight I am back off to work…well, my part time job that it. As you all know I had an interview with Speed School of English in Poland. I wait for twenty minutes on Monday for Natalie to contact me about the position. We were going to discuss about a start date etc; however, I decided that one month would not be enough time to organise everything here. I have enough money to pay for a flight etc but I have to sort my Guide unit out. As I cannot really leave the girls half way through the year.

I am starting to regret not accepting the position in Poland but I am now more determined to remember everything and to improve my interview skills. I am going to finish the modules I have got to do with i-to-i TEFL – I have passed the Teaching Business English module though; I passed it before Christmas. I need to got everything sorted!

I have been in contact with a company called Flying Cows; which is a company that places people in Korea. I have been missing calls from Amanda, the founder and I now have her email address. There are many questions about the placementing. I will keep you all posted about that.

However; I am going to get back in contact with IC Bilbao in the New Year and see if I can start there in September. I really don’t know what do at the moment; any ideas are welcome!!
