Why do you want to teach overseas?:

Teaching abroad captures what international exchange is all about, which I have experienced a lot coming from a very international University. It’s people from very different cultures coming together, learning from one another, which I have had the pleasure of doing while studying my degree – some of my closest friends are from countries such as Estonia and Malaysia.

It’s a way to travel, gain work experience, and help create opportunities for others through the use of English, so that hopefully they can also experience what I have in coming to a new country.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I am able to quickly adapt to new environments, and feel like with the knowledge I have gained traveling in Europe reading about other culutres and languages, that those skills will hopfully be transferable to living and teaching in such a place.
