"Now that I am at the end of my first month teaching with EF, I can safely say that I have learnt a lot about personal time management, communication and cultural differences.

Whilst I do think the role has married up with my expectations, I am very surprised by how rewarding teaching can be. Being online, I did not expect to be able to form interpersonal relations with students so easily. It really is amazing how a shared interest for the English language can cross geographical and physical barriers.

Overall, teaching English online definitely isn’t your average job – I mean how many people can say that they have spoken with people from all 6 continents before their 11am coffee break?!"
