As a languages graduate, I was introduced to the TEFL concept while studying. However, the idea of working in a classroom just did not appeal to 21-year-old me. So I put the idea out of my head.
It was only when someone suggests I try teaching online that I decided to go for it. I also chose the programme I did as it could be completed remotely - a handy option for someone who did not live in a city at the time.
