WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"I was a terribly shy and reserved person before going on this adventure, and the most terrifying thing to me was teaching in front of a classroom. Then there comes a time when you realize that you have to go outside of your comfort zone because that is when you will grow the most as a person. Fast forward to spending a little over a year in Thailand teaching, traveling, and meeting amazing people; I can say without a doubt it was the most changing experience so far in my life."
1. What are the qualifications to teach abroad?
It's simple. All you need is a bachelor's degree & a passport from a native english speaking country. Don't worry if you have no teaching or traveling experience. It's not required!
2. I didn't study English nor do I have plans to become a teacher. Am I still elgible?
Yes. You don't need an English degree or the desire to become a professional teacher to teach abroad. At J2, we see teaching abroad as a short-term experience, rather than a career. Everyone is on their own path & a teaching abroad experience fits into it in the way you want it to :)
3. I went to college for 4 years and I want to get a job right after I graduate. Why should I teach abroad?
Now's the perfect time! This is a short term “real world experience” that employers value deeply. And your unique story will demonstrate cultural awareness, communication, leadership, and critical thinking.
4. Why should I take the course in Los Angeles and not abroad?
There is an added stress in taking the course abroad- visa preparation, packing, communication problems, etc. J2 knows how to prepare students for day 1 in the country.
5. There are many online courses. Why is J2 better?
Teaching English to foreign students is all about personal connection. J2 teaches you how to teach like a pro by simulating a real life teaching environment.
