I love being an ESL teacher because it gives me the opportunity to travel the world and to have a job in almost every country. I also love how enriching and beautiful it is to teach a student something new, or something that he/she is not familiar with.
I also enjoy making new friends from around the world and learning from new and different cultures.
I don’t chose cities or countries to travel to and teach in particularly, I just seize any opportunity which allows me to travel. The reason I teach English in Turkey or Izmir specifically, is the diversity that exists in Turkish culture and the country’s beautiful history.
