What Advice Do You Have for ITA Students Who Want to Teach English Abroad? 

Fight through the culture shock! The first month or two living abroad is great, but you can hit a wall after that and experience tremendous homesickness. That difficult stage won’t last very long, but it is worth enduring. Getting through that by making friends and learning the language was the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done, and it can be for you too.
