A Different World...From Where You Come From

Everything you know about democracy, first-world country and common sense needs to go out the window while in China. Be open to the 180 degree change of life that you will experience from the time you step off the plane. I say these things because I was blown away at how I was not prepared for China. Despite all that I read, I was still in shock. Teaching in China is another experience: their expectations for English are high. Be prepared to train on your own because they do not offer it. Thank goodness for the coursework with International TEFL Academy. You, as a native speaker, will be thrown into a classroom and will be told to teach. It's trial by fire. The good thing about these situations were that I learned that I spoke too fast. I also learned that the students did not speak English very well. Instead of me teaching them, WE taught each other.

Worth the money

I choose ITA because I saw it everyday walking to and from work, so it was very convenient to get to. Also, several friends of mine choose their program and recommended it for my future ESL plans. From day 1, I felt comfortable and knew I made the right decision. The staff was very welcoming and spoke from their own experience for teaching abroad. In addition, I choose the Online program because it fit my schedule the best. The on-boarding program was clear and answered all my questions thoroughly. My adviser was readily available and answered all my questions quickly. I never felt lost during and after the I completed the program. I recommend ITA for any whose interested in Teaching Abroad and want a credible program.
