I need some advice.
This has been a dream of mine for soooooo long.
I have been trying to teach abroad for YEARS it seems about now, and I am finally setting into the idea that this can actually happen next year. I am meeting with my academic advisors tomorrow to see if my student teaching would work going abroad, and if so, there will be nothing stopping me from doing so.
Now, what I need advice on is, WHICH program works? And which program would you suggest? There are a million programs out there, but some are shady, some are bad, some pay real bad, and then there are some good ones, but they are hard to find and its hard to figure out which ones are which.
I figure, if I can pull this off, which nothing usually ever works out in my favor... but lets pretend it did.... I could do my student teaching in Costa Rica for the semester, get paid to work there, get a certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language, and then come back and have the certificate and be ready to graduate by June 2012, and maybe use the ESL certificate to get a job in September........
This is all up in the air,,, but if you can suggest ANY sort of program that you have heard of or have used before, it would be MUCH appreciated.
