After a lot of research and some interviews I started pursuing a teaching position in Shenzhen, China. I left mid October 2016 and have been having an amazing time since teaching, learning, exploring, and skateboarding! I chose the area because it’s a great place to skateboard and pretty much doesn’t have a winter … although I do find myself missing it a bit. That’s part of the reason why I just spent Chinese New Year in Japan!!!
CELTA was a great course. I find myself using the techniques and skills I learned all the time. I teach kids from 4 to 14 years old of all levels. Living and teaching abroad is such a rewarding and challenging experience, especially the Mandarin!
I’m very happy and extremely grateful for the opportunities CELTA has helped me with.
