A life changing experience
Submitted by Alexander - hull | December 09, 2016
There is a huge demand for native English speakers to teach English in China and the world over, you could even find a job here without a degree or a TEFL certificate, but the course with teaching nomads gives you the knowledge you need, presents the best ways to teach that knowledge, and then allows you to put it into practice, developing your teaching style in a structured and secure way. All of the mentors and trainers on the course are friendly, helpful and very insightful when it comes to teaching, or just living in China.
The wages you can get through training with teaching nomads are great! And get significantly better the longer you stay in China! But for me, this has been an amazing way to get into teaching, with academic and practical development, and without living the student life and building up more debt for a year.
I plan to re-apply for TeachFirst in the UK after this course, and I'm very confident that my growth and experience here will help me secure a position.
Great experience with Teaching Nomad

Taking part in the in-class TEFL course with Teaching Nomad was an incredible experience. Even before the course started, I received from Ginger valuable support and answers to all my questions. The course in it-self is an impressive combination of theory, practice an encounters! Not only you get to learn How to Teach but TN offers a variety of hands on teaching practice; from kindergarten kid to adults, from small groups (5-10) to public school classes with 40+ students. Although quite intimidating at first, you can be sure that thanks to their constructive feedback, support and practical tips, the great trainers, alumni and classmates will make you feel comfortable very quickly :)
Being there in October was a fantastic opportunity to bond even more with the kids through Halloween celebrations!
It has been a great adventure and undoubtedly a huge help in finding a job as an English teacher in Shanghai or China. I recommend this course to everybody, especially those ready for a life changing experience.
What a great experience

I have never been a teacher in a classroom. I did not have any experience with this. So I decided that I should go with a classroom TEFL. I'm extremely happy that I did. I had a opportunity too teach eight times. In the four weeks class. That gave me some experience. Also some valuable lessons for me. How to improve and become better. I also got to watch others do classes. From other students in the TEFL. Also the instructor gave classes. So you could see them also. I learnt a lot. So I'm grateful that I did this. I feel that I gained valuable experience from this course. I would do it again. In a heartbeat.

This August, I was very happy to meet TEFL and make many friends. And I learned that a good teacher you can't say the negative things to the parents about them children . Also I have learned some teaching skills like using body language and flashcards to teach students. Through this month, I learned how to control the students, as before might be I don't have power in class.I remember my first class some of the students was out of control . After that class I became more powerful.By the way, to observed Ginger's classes had a great help for me.
