The prettiest towns to visit when teaching English in Mexico

The prettiest towns to visit when teaching English in Mexico

For MyTEFL Reviews, please visit this site

So, you’re teaching English in Mexico? Great choice. Sloshing Caribbean waves and roaring Pacific surf give way to high volcanos and dusty agave cacti fields in this wondrous nation. And between the lot are some seriously stunning towns and cities, some of which you simply can’t miss: 

Guanajuato

Guanajuato really is a rabbit warren of a city. There’s a maze of dried-up riverbeds that have been converted to traffic lanes running through the subterrane of the surrounding hills. They serve to link the hillside barrios, which cascade down from carved rock bluffs to dashes of breeze-block homes painted vivant red and purple. The center has the usual array of little plazas and a spire-topped cathedral, but it’s further adorned with a whitewashed university complex from the 1800s, and hidden statues of Don Quixote. Eager to tread some hiking trails while teaching English in Mexico? Thi

Random Thoughts – NBA & College Basketball

Random Thoughts – NBA & College Basketball

By Timothy Ribadeneyra

To be up front, I am an old guy who prefers the game of basketball played as it was when he was growing up versus the game of today.  Here are some of my random observations:

  1. James Harden’s game is awful to watch!  I don’t dispute his offensive talent, but to watch him dribble between his legs for 15 seconds and then shoot a step back (with multiple steps…I would love to hear a NBA’s refs analysis as to why they aren’t travels) or drive the lane using his forearm to push off then flopping all over the place is excruciating.  Why any of his teammates would sign up for standing in the corner and barely touching the ball is an enigma to me. All of these guys are in the NBA for a reason and have the talent to be involved in the game. Constant passing, cutting and movement of the ball is what I enjoy watching.

I could vent a lot more, but that is all for today from the grumpy old man.

About David Siclari

About David Siclari

Born August 4th, 1968 and raised in Belleville, New Jersey along with an older brother Vinny and older sister Paula. I was a very shy boy who loved to stay close to home and very rarely slept out over friend’s houses etc. After losing my mom to cancer at the young age of seven, life changed for me. I took a leadership role in the household, helping my dad with everything from shopping, cleaning, cooking and even laundry. Aside from work and school, my dad and I spent most of our time together. We lived on a dead-end street along a golf course. Life was good, sharing friends from the neighborhood with my siblings and attending a local school around the corner. As a young boy, I had my best friend living right next door, my neighbor Michael. When I turned 8 or 9 Michael and his family moved away to Cedar Grove, New Jersey. I was lost for a while without my best friend. But we would visit and see each other often. At this stage of my life, I started working around my

Most people who spend time at an English teaching job in a foreign country consider it a time of intense learning and personal growth. Being a TEFL teacher requires a tremendous amount of courage, resourcefulness, and stepping out of one’s comfort zone in sometimes incredible amounts.

 

You will undoubtedly learn a lot of practical skills during an English teaching job abroad, like perhaps a bit of a new language, how to dive, ride a motorbike, or cook a strange vegetable. But even more importantly, you will learn deep life lessons that you will carry with you for the rest of your life; so

 While many of them do succeed and there are a lot of great TEFL courses out there, many of them also fall dismally short offering up sub par products that could prove to be a waste of money and time.

Why you Should Choose an Online TEFL Course Over an Onsite TEFL Course

Why you Should Choose an Online TEFL Course Over an Onsite TEFL Course

 

TEFL Courses Online – Click here for more info

Few careers offer as much excitement and adventure as that of the international TEFL teacher and luckily due to the high worldwide demand for qualified English teachers, it’s a career that’s easier to get into now than ever before!

 

One of the requirements for pretty much all ESL teaching jobs is a TEFL certificate. Not all TEFL courses are created equal though and one should be very careful to thoroughly look into all the pros and cons of each offered course to see which one suits them best.

 

Of course, this will all change with a new TEFL job (sorta) but until then, there are a few overhead costs one must take into consideration.

 

The main one obviously is the cost of the actual course. Online TEFL courses can range anywhere from about $200 to $400 which is still a pretty hefty sum for most recent college graduates already a
