Living And Teaching Abroad…
I have two great passions in life, teaching and traveling, TEFLBRIGHT has allowed me to pursue both at the same time. Teaching abroad has enriched my life beyond measure. I have learned so much about the world and about how other people live. Traveling for a holiday or as a tourist, doesn’t really give you enough time to truly experience the culture or to learn the language. Working abroad has allowed me to extend my stay beyond the traditional 2 weeks and in the last few years I have gained so much insight into South East Asian culture, which in turn has given me a deeper understanding, through contrast, of my own culture. Being a teacher in a different cultural setting where few people speak your language can be a real challenge at times and will really push you out of your comfort zone, but it is here where true personal growth occurs, when you are outside of your comfort zone you will find yourself doing things that you never even knew you were capable of.Charl Swart
When you choose to live in another country, along with it comes the inevitable homesickness, the never-ending stress of visa’s and the uncertainty of how long you can stay. But, with that being said, this is all paired with a lifestyle of excitement, new experiences, adventure and exploring the world. Homesickness allows you to open up to building relationships with people from all around the world. Even sometimes from your own country. These relationships may be temporary or everlasting, but it’s beautiful nonetheless. Visa issues offer exploration of another country’s culture, food and beauty. You meet the most interesting people along the way. You discover your own strengths and limitations. And lastly, the uncertainty of “Am I staying or going?”, leaves you humble. You appreciate what you have. You realize what you need. You are surprised at what you don’t need. And you enjoy the moments for what they are.Jo-Anne Brigden
