I’ve wanted to move to Spain for as long as I could remember, but in London I had the dream job and an even dreamier boyfriend. When the dream crumbled, instead of crying and feeling all “woe is me”, I took it as the perfect opportunity to finally make the move and live the life I had always dreamed of. But with limited Spanish vocabulary and no real idea how I would fund all the wild nights I had planned (Madrid is famed for its nightlife and I was eager to explore every bar and dance floor) I turned to TtMadrid.
I admit it, when I signed up for the course—just weeks before the start date—I saw it as a means to an end. Get a TEFL certificate, teach the minimum amount of hours needed to cover the cost of rent and general enjoyment . . . Happy days! Little did I know that the course would have me gripped, and I discovered (thanks to TtMadrid’s amazing TEFL techniques and teaching philosophies) that I possessed an unlimited passion for teaching English. I now approach my lesson plans with as much determination as I do the bar, and display the same zeal and enthusiasm for my classes as I do the dance floor. I have found my calling!
As for Madrid, my city of choice, I couldn’t have picked a better place. Unlimited nightlife, beautiful people, delightfully stifling sunshine, and some of the best food I have ever tried in my life! Don’t get me started on the Kobe beef and gourmet tapas and croquetas!! I feel like I’ve reclaimed the years I’d so bitterly misplaced back in miserable London and doing my TEFL at TtMadrid played a HUGE part in my brand new life.
