The TEFL experience - In a new country, alone and no friends - sounds like fun!



Since i'm going to be alone for 4 weeks, in a small cramped room with no mates and a crap load of large confusing textbooks, i might as well tell everybody who cares (or doesn't) how am doing.

And maybe i can help a few others along the way and make a few friends (something i dont do without a huge slap of cynicism and dis-trust) But honestly, i'm lovely really

Hey! Right, i'm off to Barca!! Very tired and drained from all the packing and stressing but hey, could be worse, i could still be setting up breakfast!!

Things i'm gonna miss about Cardiff:

- home (obviously!)
- my car!!
- British TV
- Kings Road in Canton... so many memories.
- Alfie, Gandy, Sookie and Ozzy (RIP)
- late night drinks in Chapter
- Driving. Anywhere and everywhere...
- Complaing about my job! (and there was a LOT of complaining)
- Golf.
- rolling my mum cigarettes in her car.
- walking home through Llandaf fields with the city lights behind me.
- Pykey's basement (dont ask)
- Everyone from work.
- Pulse (well i say miss...!)
- Penarth road!


And finally my mum and dad, who are the most wonderful people (and craziest) i know!

And now... Barcelona!

4 weeks to go!!!



Right, i am totally new to blogging and i hope to not bore to many people nor irritate my gf, but i will be posting as much as possible... so please be nice and not too nasty!! (and forget spelling mistakes as i have formerly fat fingers and they piss me off)

Im of to Barcelona in a few weeks (4 actually) and i'm enrolling onto a CELTA course at International house Barcelona. I want to be a teacher. Always have done. But i never felt the time was right as i' always felt too young and foolish (which i still am a bit!). However, i need to move on, new challenges and all that and so, after much thought (and money) I'm off with Queen Sisi, to become a teacher of English!

Absolutely crapping myself as i have no idea if i'm any good, have no place too stay and only kow one person there!! And TBH, my grammar sucks. I blame my useless if random brain and my high school for being what it is. And you need to understand grammar to be a TEFL teacher so its going to be a long process for me... and thats one of the reasons i've started this blog. I don't write much, hardly ever in fact, and so i need to practice. Simple.

So follow me please, and give me some support (and money!!!!!! o god give me money) and help me!!!!
