So you can get the straight scoop from someone who has lived overseas for 20+ years, taught English in four different countries from two to five years in each and can share some real world experience with you. You can know my name: Ted Tucker. You can even get my email address. No one is hiding behind an avatar or a puffed up name.
It’s not all perfect, it’s not all easy. But you already know that you can’t fully trust the Internet’s forums and bulletin board’s hidden agendas. Where complaints about a country are often as not sour grapes of someone who got fired; or puffed up wage suggestions might be the result of ego building. Most of what you find “out there” is pretty good stuff, but TEFL Newbie is here to help you sort the wheat from the chaff.
Life abroad isn’t for everyone, but it can be a real delight for the right people.
The intention of this blog is to help you know if you are the “right people.
I hope you are. There is a big wonderful world waiting for you out here.
Come on board!
