Steven's TEFL Experience in China

Steven took a Standard TEFL course in Edinburgh in August 2011 and now has recently opened his own English Language School in China. 

How would you rate your course?


What drew you to taking a UK-TEFL course?

There were so many options out there but TEFL offered the best tuition at the best price.

Tell us what you are doing now? Can you describe a typical day as an EFL teacher?

I'm in China and I have recently opened my own English school. Everyday is busy, but rewarding and no two days are the same.

What is your favourite part of Teaching English as a Foreign Language?

Watching my students progress in their English level. It's good to see them remembering everything you taught them.

Why did you choose your teaching location? What is your favourite thing about living there?

Dalian. I chose it because it's very liveable for a foreign teacher, clean air, beaches but the cuisine is my favourite thing. The seafood here is really first class.

What are your future plans?

At the moment, just to see how my school will change and grow.

What advice would you give to someone wanting to Teach English as a Foreign Language?

There is a whole world out there, don't sit there and wonder about it. Go do a TEFL course and get the chance to see it. You won't regret it.

Would you recommend taking a UK-TEFL Course?
