Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I would like to pursue a career in teaching English overseas.

Firstly, I would like to be in a job where my previous skills and experience are useful, but an environment that is new to me such as teaching.

Secondly, I wish to experience a new culture, language and country. I have chosen to apply to teach English in South Korea as I have had an interest in the culture for many years, having undertaken language lessons at a basic level as well. Teaching abroad will offer me an opportunity to get involved in cultural and social activities which will broaden my cultural awareness.

Thirdly, teaching abroad offers a great deal of personal development. Four key skills I have researched to be essential as an English teacher yourself and to install into your students are reading, writing, listening and speaking. Whilst I believe I have the requisite skills, to improve upon these four skills as an English teacher abroad will improve my employability and innate skills.

Fourthly, I as I wish to work in a work environment new to me to develop new skills and abilities, I also desire to work in an environment that is diverse within itself. Teaching English abroad offers me the ability to work with a variety of young people, of different ages and teaching different areas of my native language. I believe that teaching overseas would provide new tasks and challenges every day which I find desirable.

Finally, teaching abroad offers me the chance to meet new people and new friends, both of which I can create lifelong relationships and experiences with and have the chance to share our cultures and languages with one another.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I believe I have the requisite administrative skills to be a diligent English teacher in South Korea. Having worked as a Project Support Assistant on a summer internship, I was in charge of a Legal and Educational Outreach Project. I worked individually to contact law firms and educational departments to organise partnerships and monetary donations. My communications successfully secured monetary legal aid and collaborations on two grounds between the organisation I was working for and my University.

I believe I have the requisite written skills to be a diligent English teacher. I developed this ability through my legal research experience. I exhibited this shadowing the Pro Bono & Citizenship Team at Herbert Smith Freehills. I was entrusted to complete eight pieces of legal research on the MADE51 project. My research gave responsible advice on the business risks associated with working with refugees in Colombia as many are situated in multiple legal jurisdictions. My research crucially in detail gave responsible advice to enable the client in the partnership to address any potential legislative business risks.

I believe I have the requisite communicative skills to be a diligent English teacher. I am a Sussex International Summer School (ISS) Ambassador representing ISS to fellow First-Generation Scholars. At the 2018 Welcome Event, I was invited to present a speech about my experience to over 300 attendees which was a significant task. Additionally, As the Vice President of the Commercial Awareness Society, It was a priority to reinvent and kickstart the society as it had not been active for two years. I reached out to key Law staff to speak in front of first and second-year lectures. During my various weekly speeches, I promoted our Facebook page which resulted in receiving 24 new members on our page within one week. The Head of Employability at my Law School was so impressed that she reached out to me following my speech to collaborate on upcoming employability and commercial themed events. After several meetings, I was able to secure links with the law school which allowed for all of our events to be promoted in the employability bulletins and television screens in the school.

I believe I have the requisite creative skills to be a diligent English teacher. During my previously mentioned summer internship, I partook in the Social Media Outreach Project. I created the organisations’ brand new Linked In page, contributing to the newsletter, updating various social media platforms and creating infographics/posters with Canva software. I transformed and developed the organisation’s social media presence

I believe I have the requisite analytical skills to be a diligent English teacher. I possess excellent attention to detail. As a reader to a vulnerable individual with hearing and sight problems, I reviewed around 300 pages of correspondence in his ongoing legal case to bring together a file for Court. I worked hard to particularly note numerous discrepancies between actual correspondences and the opposition’s defence alongside the previous judgement from the Judge. This ultimately developed a stronger appeal case for the private individual to fight for his disability rights.

Additional information:

I thank you for your time and look forward to having an opportunity to meet and further demonstrate my suitability for this role and interest in a career of teaching English abroad.
