After doing a lot of research, ITA seemed like a great program to go through. They offered job assistance and lifetime guidance and support. I loved the Prague course. It was a lot of work, but I feel like I learned so much and am prepared to teach English. The instructors were super knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. I met a ton of great people. It was the best decision I've ever made!

I live comfortably, and could make decisions to spend less by moving out of the city center or having a smaller apartment. I buy bio/ organic food when possible and drink wine or cocktails instead of beer, which brings up my costs compared to those who buy cheaper food and drink super cheap beer. I also travel around Europe every few weeks to visit friends and have enough to manage all of this carefully.

I decided to do my TEFL certification with International TEFL Academy because they were really helpful in answering my questions about living abroad and finding a job. I would recommend coming to Prague. It's a gorgeous city with lots of history and tons of fun and exciting things to do.
