Why to being a TEFL English teacher?
作者：TESOL in China来源：https://www.tesolinchina.com
When you want to tidy up your life and move abroad, you know we don't need to be convincing! But we know this is a big move, so you may be wary of taking risks, which is understandable. There's nothing wrong with that.
But maybe you think there's a lot more in your life. Maybe you've had this feeling for some time. A feeling that your life can be different. If we are honest, this may be the biggest reason why people choose to give up life and become TEFL teachers. The underlying feeling is that they should do more in life and there is more in life.
However, if you still hold a wait-and-see attitude, let's give you four reasons to make it clearer that you should give up working nine to five and become a TEFL English teacher.
TEFL teaching gives you wings
Obviously, it is not literal, but the clearest metaphor. The simple definition of 9-5 is that you work from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Many people like this and cherish its predictability, but TEFL English teachers often prefer to live a little more freely. Your schedule can be changed on any day.
Many people spend years or even decades in a job, an office or a desk. Again, there's nothing wrong with it. But we like the fact that being a TEFL English teacher means that your classroom changes every year - even more frequently. TEFL teaching contracts usually last for one year. Changing jobs easily means moving to a new country, let alone a new school! The diversity and flexibility of this job are not found in many other occupations.
Money makes the world go round
We cannot deny the fact that money makes the world work, nor can we deny it. Of course, some occupations can make you more money than TEFL English teaching, but there are also many TEFL English teaching jobs that can bring you a comfortable salary. Some people will even provide you with accommodation and air ticket reimbursement - both of which are huge savings. In addition to your main teaching job, you can earn extra income through part-time work - and your TEFL teaching job may give you the freedom to do so without exhausting you.
Be the change you want to see in the world
All work is meaningful, but not all work allows you to see the changes you are affecting. English is one of the most widely used languages in the world. It is suitable for business, leisure and personal occasions. Our students need English for some reason, and we can help them achieve their goals.
Therefore, teaching English is a very meaningful job. You will see your students make progress in front of you. You will not only feel satisfied with your TEFL teaching ability, but also notice that they are proud of their English ability. If your students pass the English exam, find a job, or get admitted to a university, you will feel a sense of achievement with them - because you are bringing real changes to other people's lives.
You're ready for the challenge
Living in the city you've always lived in, working for years, and doing what you've always done every weekend - can put you in a comfortable zone. Sometimes we need to get out of our current situation, which is what we need to challenge ourselves intellectually and emotionally.
Becoming a TEFL teacher is undoubtedly a challenge, especially if you have never taught before. Teaching will improve your skills in many ways. TEFL English teaching teaches you time management, personnel management, speech, communication, sense of responsibility and many other skills. In addition, it encourages creativity and imagination.
As you can see, there are countless reasons to be a TEFL English teacher. On the other hand, there may be many reasons to give up the current 9-5. If you work in a toxic environment or don't get along well with your colleagues, maybe it's time to leave. If you're afraid to go to work on Monday and daydream on your desk all day, maybe you should consider leaving. Or, if you want to pack your bags and fly to a new destination, maybe you should put your resignation letter together and sign up for TEFL!
