An Expensive Eye Opener...

I was feeling rather sluggish today on my way home from the school. I have so much work to do for my TESOL certificate, but knew that if I stayed home I wouldn't get anything done (I'd probably just crawl into bed). I am now sitting at the local coffee shop with an empty smoothie container, and haven't accomplished any studying. Not yet, anyways. I'm just zoned out, lids still heavy, and trying to focus. I thought that maybe writing a blog might help.

Speaking of my TESOL course (TESOL= Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), I must complete 25o training hours and a 20 hour practicum before I can receive my diploma from ONTESOL by Coventry House International. I'm really excited for taking this course, and already I have learned so much. There are three modules: Grammar, Methodology, and Phonology. I began the grammar module on Monday. When I complete everything, I will be a bona fide ESL teacher! I'm looking forward to it.

What a beautiful day outside. I hope you are taking some time to enjoy this glorious weather which our great God and Saviour gave to us.

Hi Ash
Thanks for sharing your plans for the TESOL course with us and giving us a bit of an idea of what it will involve for you in your studies and what the end result will be when you finish as a bona fide ESL teacher.
This seems to be something you enjoy doing, so if you can get the course qualifications, it could turn out to be a good profession for you in the future.
It may take some hard work and discipline to accomplish it, but anything worth doing, is worth putting the time and effort and into it.

Of course our prayers will continue to be with you as you strive to put forth the necessary self discipline to so this.

Much love NAN xoxox
