The Proud Journey
Submitted by Nelly | November 15, 2017
I’ve always had dreams of teaching abroad. I was lucky to find a great team who supported me and guided me along the way. My students bring out the best of me everyday and I am truly blessed and thankful for the start of an amazing journey!
Awesome learning experience

It is an awesome learning experience with Teaching Nomad. I took the combined course with 10 days of teaching practice with them and thought I should have gone with the full four-week programme instead. The practical experience gained from the course is invaluable and those are what you can't get from online reading.
The trainers are really great and affirming. Their teaching experience in China and attentiveness to the learning needs of every course participants impresses me. They make sure every question we have in class is answered. Special thanks to Ginger, Nik and Daniel for being such wonderful trainers and helping in every way you can.
From lesson planning to classroom management, there are guidance and support given to make sure each teaching practice is a learning experience. The feedback sessions after each teaching practice have been really helpful in developing my teaching skills. I have learnt so much on classroom management and its effectiveness on teaching. The exposure to public school and small group teaching practices has certainly benefitted many of us in getting ready for the real teaching job.
Teaching Nomad Tefl - Sept 2017

This course far exceeded any expectations I had. The instructors were knowledgeable, efficient, interesting, and always willing to share practical advice for real life teaching in Chinese schools and language centers. From the very first week of the 4 week course, my fellow classmates and I were immersed in the day to day world of actual classroom teaching, with real live students and typical teaching scenarios. I truly feel ready to teach after this intensive course and the best part is the continued support from Teaching Nomad staff.

I moved from my parents house around the world to a new city at 21 years old, and it was by far the most amazing challenge and experience of my life so far. The teaching nomad course here in Shanghai was better than I could have ever expected due to the content and experiences as well as the super helpful staff and instructors. I considered undertaking the course online but Im so so glad i didn't: the amount of practical experience far received from putting the learning content in to practice and being able to reflect upon my teaching sessions is invaluable. The opportunity to practice and teach classes has really benefitted my practice and knowledge/understanding on teaching english, and will allow me to have more experience for working. The staff is unbelievably helpful and kind, and were willing to help with whatever you needed whenever you needed them, from helping to adapt to the new style of life in Shanghai to giving constructive feedback on teaching sessions. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in teaching abroad, of any age.
A professional and fun course

Teaching Nomad runs a course that far exceeded my expectations. The instructors are all excellent teachers who have years of experience in Shanghai and are always willing to help with questions related to teaching or to daily life. The course is designed with an emphasis on practical teaching experience, and everyone is able to teach classes of different sizes several times a week. You'll have help from the Teaching Nomad staff and alumni during the job and housing search. This is a phenomenal program for anyone looking to jump into life in Shanghai.
