Teaching English


Teaching, and long-term -or life- teaching English is as good a job as any other… and even better… like the author says… it’s a job that gives you a well paid job abroad… and there’s always work… even if you don’t speak the language to begin with -although I believe once there you should learn it… learning the language is respect for the local and the best way to understand them and the challenges they’re facing learning English-…

 We all, at one time or another, go through a mid-life crisis… and there’s nothing wrong with changing jobs or life altogether… so long as it is a MATURED and CHOSEN decision… not a choice you make out of no choice… a desperate escape… and, with teaching English, you can always chose to go and teach somewhere else…

Lately, and also because of major health problems, I had to take another turn… another direction, another road… and developed my writing and started writing for English teachers and English students while producing audiobooks… and when I look back I realise I owe it all to teaching English… and the funny thing is I never wanted to be a teacher to begin with… can you believe that ?

There’s not only room at the top with Teaching English… there’s also room for maneuver… disillusioned me ? Never !
