A Good Side Effect to Taking a TEFL Course in Classroom

One great thing about taking a TEFL Course in the country where you want to work, which isnt really addressed, is that during the course, you get to meet interesting people. Yes, of course, you'll have your fellow trainees but I'm refering to the people you will teach during teacher practice.

As every accredited TEFL program must provide teacher practice, most often your students are natives of the country where you want to live and they are, infact, proud of their culture and history. It is an awesome environment to meet such people and learn more about your desired country from "real" people as opposed to magazines or stereotypes. It's a unique situation to see how different we are from each other as well as share our opinions of the world, our world.

What an opportunity! G.G.
