I can't believe it. I'm almost finished my TESL course. On Sunday I gave my practice lesson and this upcoming Saturday is my practicum. What's a practicum? It's a pass/fail test where I must teach a lesson to the class and my abilities will be measured as successful or unsuccessful. If I fail (unlikely) I will be required to try again. Luckily, I know I'll pass.
How do I know that? Well, I am confident in my teaching abilities (already!?) and I did very well on my practice lesson. If my practice lesson would have been my practicum, I would have passed. So that's great news! I'm less than a week away from finishing the first part of the TESL course. The second part is an online grammar class. That will be a breeze. Hopefully I'll finish it by August (they give you three months to complete the online component).
Who knows what will happen after that? I might stay here temporarily as a TA for an ESL class or I might just find a job and go, go, go! I'm going to take advantage of whatever opportunities I can find. I'm ready!
It's so exciting to think about teaching in another country. On that note, no, I haven't decided where I'm going yet and yes, I will be posting more information about different countries. I simply haven't had the time. When I do, I will! I already have a draft written up about Italy. I am strongly considering going there. It's a truly historic and romantic place. Not to mention, Ezio Auditore. Need I say more?
In the mean time, I'm putting together a lesson plan for my practicum and getting ready to rock it! I will keep you updated!
