Supporting Information
Why do you want to teach overseas?: 
I would love to see the world and becoming a teacher in another country feels like a fantastic experience to do so. Living abroad for an extended period of time will allow me to fully immerse myself in the language and culture of my host country. One of my favourite parts about visiting a new country is meeting new people and speaking the same language is an important part of that, and as English is the most commonly spoken second language, teaching English will allow my students to communicate with people across the globe and discover what I love most about travel.
Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?: 
I am a very hard worker, so I will throw myself into my work. I have also been a language student as I learned French and German at school, so I can easily put myself in the students' shoes to figure out how to effectively teach my language.
