Congratulations! You’ve already made the first step in your TEFL journey.
Trust me, you’ve made the right choice in choosing Destination TEFL. Right from the first activity you feel like part of a team and comfortable enough to interact with your classmates who you’ve literally just met.
The trainer gets everyone totally involved in all activities without having to try too hard at all, Tina (the trainer) is always smiling and energetic. She is one of the most patient teachers I’ve met, making sure that no student is left behind. Willie (The President!) is the on-site tech guru, making sure that we don’t have any issues with the application etc. Kathryn (Director) also jumps in from time to time and mixes it up a bit which is great. This gives us the opportunity to learn from a different type of teacher (if you think Tina is energetic then wait until you meet Kathryn)!! 😉
‘We celebrate mistakes’ is one of their mottos, encouraging us to answer questions without being judged. This has really given me a safe environment to try and answer questions.
Even though I attended the Virtual course; apart from a couple of screen freezes and robotic voices you don’t feel like you're thousands of miles away.
I highly recommend this course! Once the current situation is under control and travel restrictions have been lifted, we head over to Siem Reap for our teacher practicals. I can’t wait!
All the best with your journey, enjoy the scenery and don’t forget to smell the roses. 😊
