    China Internship

    I decided to take a gap year after I finished my Leaving Cert. After going through the entire course online and getting accredited to teach english abroad I had the best year of my life in Shanghai. The week was spent teaching and I was able to travel around and explore during the weekends. I’m looking forward to going abroad again once I’m finished college.

    Getting accredited to teach english as a second language is one of the best things I have ever done! The entire online course was really easy to follow and I was able to get help whenever I wasn’t sure about anything. I’m planning to go abroad next year to put my newly found knowledge to use! Thanks for all the help guys!

    China Internship

    I did an internship for three months in Beijing. It was great fun and I enjoyed my time there. My host family were exceptional and helped me out with any problems I had during my time staying there! The monthly allowance was enough to travel around with as everything is much cheaper over there than at home here. I’d love to go back again to visit but during the summer this time!

    My first step into teaching was with this programme & exploration into my potential as a teacher of English. The course was very well laid out and easy to follow once I arrived in country the co-ordinators were brilliant & encouraging to Native Speakers & Polish Participants alike. It's an intense experience but one that I will definitely be looking to participate in again. Thank you for the opportunity to teach, touch, learn, share & give.

    I loved doing the TEFL course, especially the fact that I could complete it online as I mind two children and was constantly being interrupted but it was easy to go back over things if I didn’t fully understand. Ian was very helpful throughout the course and made sure all my questions were answered quickly and in detail. I can’t wait to put my new skills to the test in Spain this summer.
