Moving aboard to work always feels a little risky. English Wizards helped me feel more secure. They helped with the hardest parts of moving and working abroad.
The English Wizards program set me up for success. I was new to teaching english. The program not only gave me experience but gave me priceless guidance, tips, and tricks. It was intensive and rigorous, but entirely worth it. My classmates and I encouraged and supported each other throughout making it a fantastic learning environment. The hands-on experience and practice allowed me to be more confident and capable in front of my students. Overall, the experience made me a better teacher and without it teaching wouldn't be nearly as enjoyable.
Many of the daunting things regarding moving and working abroad, were made much easier by English Wizards. They provided some help to me with all of the following:
- getting a work permit
- how to get to Poland (flights) (during a pandemic this is not easy to navigate but they provided much needed guidance)
- Getting a Job
- Getting an Apartment
- Getting my Government paperwork figured out
- Making friends
- Navigating the Covid restrictions
- and much more!
TL;DR: It can be scary and risky to move and work abroad. English Wizards and their program helped me feel more secure and set me up for success.
