A month to remember

The month I spent at Hello Acadiemies was an incredible experience that I will never forget. Without question it was also incredibly difficult, in fact possibly one of the most challenging things I have ever done. Yet it was also so much fun, the people I spent a month living and working with became like a family to me, whom I will hopefully be reunited with someday! The alumni I met out there were so helpful, welcoming and always there to take us to new and interesting places in the city and really tried to ensure that it wasn't all work and no play.

The staff were great, they always try to help with any problems you have, and do their best to provide everything you need. They also never shy away from a good time. Martha is a fantastic teacher, she managed to put up with all of our joking around everyday and still managed to make us grammar masters by the end of it all, and she is always there to give you advice or help you with your lessons. Trust me you will need it.

The best thing about the whole experience however, was probably the students we got to teach. It was nerve-wracking enough teaching for the first time, but they really made me feel welcome, they laughed with us and were patient with all of us from the beginning, and by the end of the course I could call many of them my friends, particularly after pub night! It was great getting to work with such interesting people and made me feel much more confident about being a teacher.

I would highly recommend this course to others, don't expect it to be easy, but it is definitely worth it.

Summer adventures made simple

I can't thank Camp Leaders enough for the support that they have given me throughout my American adventures.
The super friendly staff have always been on hand to answer questions and offer encouragement, from the moment that I applied 3 years ago to now as I get ready to jet off for my third summer in the States.
They made sure that they found a placement that was perfect for me and made the daunting process of obtaining a visa so straightforward.
It's safe to say that without them helping me on my journey to camp, I wouldn't be who I am today, from making countless international friends to affording me the chance to travel the U.S after camp.
For me, there is no better organisation to choose, and I can wholeheartedly say that the customer service they have provided has been worth every penny.

If I could go every year I would!

When I first applied I was very unsure whether camp was what I wanted to do but the Camp Leaders team ensured me that I'd have an amazing summer, and helped me with every step of the process to make sure I was comfortable with it all. Now I have just applied to my 3rd summer at my camp in Massachusetts and it has honestly the best thing I have ever done. Yes the pay isn't great your first year but the amount of experiences and friendships you gain are priceless. If you are thinking about it, I'd say to just go for it, you won't regret a second of it!

If you're unsure then give them a call

If you're unsure whether summer camp is for you then just give the Camp Leaders team a call. They have all been to camp and are able to give you all the information you need. On top of this they make the visa process simple and have lots of tips to make the most out of your travel period.

Choose Smaller Earth!

Choosing Smaller Earth to get my TEFL certification was the best decision I made! Smaller Earth provided a very welcoming atmosphere and a well constructed school day. I did not expect that I would be having my own private lessons within the first week of the course and teaching an entire class by the beginning of the second week. The school day started with grammar and methodology taught by Martha, who is an all-around amazing teacher! By the afternoon, we were planning our lessons for the week and teaching that night. While the course is fast-paced, it prepares you thoroughly and allows each student to gain plenty of hands-on experience before graduating from the program. Before the course is even completed, the staff is incredibly helpful with helping each student find housing, prepare for jobs and staying connected with previous graduates through social events! If you are considering going abroad to be apart of an entire new world full of adventure and experience, Smaller Earth is the best place to begin your journey!
