I personally gained a lot from this course and I am really proud of myself. To be honest, I was scared about this course and I first thought that I would not have enough time to finish it since it is summer and I was working around 50 hours per week in my two summer jobs. However, I wanted so much to finish it before August that I put all my time and effort in it and now, that it is finished I realize that I feel a lot more comfortable with the idea of teaching. I surprised myself thinking and visualizing about ideas of fun activities that I could do in class. I enjoyed taking this course, I really think it was helpful and complete. I will try to use many of the tips and suggestions that I have learned about teaching foreign language. Moreover, I personally gained self-confidence and now I really think that I will be able to do it! I think that I have now all the necessary tools to being able to teach english foreign language. I plan to put into action what I have learned actually really soon if I can get a teaching job in mexico, next semester starting in August or September. My plane ticket is already bought; the only thing missing is a job and a visa! Since a moment, I am visioning every night that my dream of teaching in Puebla, mexico will become a reality. I also plan to later do my supplementary 50 hours on ?young learners? because I would love to teach to kids and dealing with kids passionate me. In addition, maybe that back in canada, I would decide to change orientation and to go into teaching instead administration, who knows?
