One giant leap

Everything has a starting point, good and bad. This is a starting point for me. Taking this course is the first step in being able to travel, to learn new things, meet new people, and experience things I haven't before. Starting things can be scary, that first step is necessary for everything else that follows. The ITA has made that first step possible. Not only do they add a comprehensive course that leads to a teaching certificate, but there are also many ways that they make sure the student is ready to become the teacher. The course itself is wonderful and covers all things that a potential teacher would need to know. Each lesson is applicable to a real world setting. The course work and content is intensive and similar to an online college course, but that is to ensure we are prepared stepping out into the world of ESL. In my experience every staff members knows their stuff. If someone you are already in contact with doesn't have the answer to your question, there is someone at the ITA who does. Other than the course they have a wonderful job search department, as well as ways to connect with fellow alumni from the ITA. They want to make sure that you aren't only prepared to teach, but also help you find work. For me a third of the appeal for signing up with the ITA was that it has many graduates around the globe that can attest to it's effectiveness. Another third is that they have a department specifically designated to get you to that next step after completing the course, which is a job. You won't be finishing the course wondering what to do next because they will help you with everything that comes next. The tuition is pricey, but honestly it was worth the money, I can see it paying for itself in no time. I'm not as anxious as I used to be about teaching abroad, because I feel prepared to take that second step.
