Teaching Practicum! My cultural and language experience!
In addition to this, I will be providing much needed training to future tourism professionals on the sturcutre and grammar rules of English while in Mexico. I will have a chance to embrace this new cultural while making a noteable impact through teaching these students what they need to know in order to succeed in their careers. I am very passionate aboout this because it will give me the chance to prepare myslef for my future career as well by helping people. Going into TESL all I really wanted to do was be able to empower people through language skills and help them achieve their language goals.
I chose Mexico because Mexican culture has always fascinated me. Growing up in the Pacific Northwest I have lived through a lot of rain and cluds so the tropical climate of Mexico also intrigues me. I love how community orientated our neighbors to the south are and I throughly enjoy the food as well. I think it is fate that this program is held in Mexico every year because I eventually want to teach English here during my career as well.
Overall this is an amazing experience because I get to immerse myself into a culture I have always wanted to explore while using my teaching skills to enhance other peoples lives. I am excited for this opportunity to both explore and better myslef while helping students learn the skills they need to enhance and better themselves!
