Hello to all you fellow travellers and TEFL teachers out there! I am Kirstie, a qualified TEFL teacher, currently teaching abroad and living my dream, I hope one day you can too!
I started out my journey in Manchester, UK, where I graduated from University and was working in a healthcare company. I backpacked around South East Asia a couple of years ago and knew I’d want to go back someday. I also knew I would love to teach but just didn’t have the courage to study for it in the UK, so I decided to move abroad and teach.
I completed my TEFL course and then flew out to Thailand to start my journey. I lived in Chiang Mai for 1 year and 3 months, working as an International teacher in Grade 1. I then moved to Phuket for 6 weeks to be surrounded by stunning beaches, working as an online ESL teacher speaking to students all around the world. Eventually, I wanted a steady income and moved to Hanoi, Vietnam for a year to work as an English teacher in a language centre. I have recently relocated to Da Nang, Vietnam’s sort after destination, with the same company and love it!
I’d love to hear all about your TEFL experiences and all your travelling hot spots. Please leave a comment or ask me any questions, I’d be happy to help. Happy travelling!
