Supporting Information
Why do you want to teach overseas?: 
I have always been enthusiastic about English. I spent a lot of time reading when I was younger and feel that this benefited me by encouraging me to develop and learn quickly. I had a vivid imagination as a child, possibly influenced by my interest in the captivating work of such authors as Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl and Charles Kingsley. I still enjoy reading in my spare time. It is impossible for me to choose my favourite book, but I have taken pleasure numerous times in reading 'A Child Called It' by Dave Pelzer, a book which I find mesmerising and deeply moving, and 'Little Women' by Louisa May Alcott, a powerful and inspiring novel. I think that helping students to realise their potential would be a significantly rewarding job that I would look forward to every day. Malcolm X once said, "Without education, you are not going anywhere in this world." This is a concept I would like to use to inspire young people and encourage them to appreciate the importance of their education.
Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?: 
Overall I believe I am a responsible, dedicated and hard-working person. I am a good listener and I feel that my good communication skills would be essential for a teaching career and hopefully end up with a successful and fulfilling career. The reason I want to teach over seas and not the UK is due to the experiences I have been lucky enough to gain in my life and the countries I have seen, I would love to combine my love of travelling whilst sharing my knowledge and helping others.
