Why do you want to teach overseas?:

Ever since I was young, my parents have instilled in me a desire to experience life outside of the UK. I have been fortunate enough to have already lived, studied, worked and travelled abroad. All of my most valuable experiences and memories have taken place during these times. Therefore, I am incredibly eager to work abroad after I graduate and continue learning more about new places, languages and cultures.

I also believe that education is the most important investment a country can make, and teaching is an underrated and undervalued profession. I think teaching would not only be a very rewarding and enriching job, but it would also give me a great insight into ordinary life in Korea. Being able to connect with students and understand the way they see the world will be incredibly eye-opening and I hope fulfilling.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

As a language student, I appreciate and understand the importance of learning a language that is not one’s own. I also believe that learning a language can be incredibly fulfilling and rewarding. For school children around the world learning English can open up so many doors that would otherwise be closed to them. It not only allows them to understand and communicate in a language that is used worldwide but can make travelling to certain places and meeting people more accessible to them as well.

Speaking French is one of my favourite activities which has made the time I have spent living in France both enjoyable and rewarding. I hope that after starting to learn English, my students would be able to enjoy travelling to or living in an English-speaking country. I hugely appreciate the opportunity to live and work abroad as I believe it is enriching and allows one to become more open-minded. I think it is a very valuable undertaking to be able to give students the keys to having this experience themselves.

I am considering becoming a language teacher for my career and I think my passion for languages would make me a strong candidate for the role. I also enjoy working with children, having done lots of babysitting work and volunteering with them whilst I grew up. Being a language tutor would be fulfilling, not only to see the kids improve in their language skills but also to be able to give them idiomatic and cultural references that they might otherwise miss out on, and which are so important to becoming fluent in a language. It will be a cultural exchange benefitting both myself and the students, as I think that immersing myself in their culture is a crucial step to being a good teacher.
