The most beneficial part were the teaching hours. I had zero teaching experience prior to arriving here, so I learned a lot about how to conduct myself and execute lessons in a beneficial way for my students. Without a doubt, I would recommend teaching English in Istanbul. I've had a fabulous experience here and would love to have everyone see the true colors of Turkey.

I spent valuable time researching for the right teaching course. I made several phone calls, read reviews, and visited multiple sites before making a decision. The first website I had visited was the International TEFL Academy. I spoke to Advisor Ian Davis and he explained the program. The more I discussed my options with him, the more I confident I became to follow through with the process of earning my TEFL certification and teaching English abroad. The program was very well organized and I knew it was the best decision for me.

Two things sparked my interest to teach abroad. Firstly, I wanted to get out of the current job I was in. I sat behind a computer everyday and worked hours upon hours for a company that never showed any appreciation. Secondly, I missed traveling. I grew up living abroad and missed learning and living within new cultures. I got my job within the first few days of landing here. I just went around the city with a bunch of CVs and did demos.
