*NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS IN SOUTH KOREA*
Do you remember what it was like those last few weeks before your departure to teach English abroad for the first time? Most likely a combination of nerves and excitement — oh, and questions. Lots of questions.
We are looking for both:
Local Buddy Responsibilities:
Are you missing your TEFL course classmates and interested in hosting a virtual or in-person reunion? We'd be happy to help you pull it off.
This can be as simple as coordinating a virtual video chat or as elaborate as a face-to-face hangout if all (or most) of you ended up in the same place after your TEFL course.
If you are interested, please follow the tips above and don't forget to let the Alumni Department know!
Are you interested in connecting with other ITA alumni in your city overseas? Host an ITA alumni meet-up. This event can take place anywhere in your city such as your favorite park, restaurant, or even a hike or excursion.
These in-person meet ups are the absolute best way to get to know fellow teachers and travelers. We're happy to assist you in coordinating these events, too!
Don't have any alumni in your city or immediate area? Consider hosting a virtual meetup. You could host one for your country or even your region (Caribbean meetup, anyone?). This is a great way of meeting teachers and fellow travelers a little further afield. Who knows — you may even make a few new friends aka reasons to visit a new locale.
Follow the tips above and don't forget to let the Alumni Department know!
