I have just taken part in a seminar with Jessica and Olivia about to gain TEFL experience. The course content contained a lot of... info about additional courses that are available to help with this and also details about the various TEFL internships that are offered, as long as you are not an old man like me. There was also plenty of info regarding other avenues that can be explored along with websites that can be used to look for both paid and voluntary work. I have already applied to some of these websites, so the seminar will hopefully prove to be very beneficial.read more
