Transformative Journey: My Trinity CertTESOL Testimonial
My name is Büşra, and I was born and raised in the beautiful city of İzmir, Turkey. From a young age, the English language has captivated me. Introduced to it in the 4th grade, I immediately fell in love, and since then, it has become an integral part of my life. Despite being a non-native English speaker, my passion for the language is so deep that it feels like my native tongue. This passion led me to pursue a degree in English language and literature at university. As I approached the end of my studies, I faced the daunting question of what to do next. It’s a challenge that many recent graduates encounter—deciding how to steer their lives in their early twenties. However, I knew that teaching English and sharing my knowledge brought me joy. After careful consideration, I decided to take a TEFL course in Italy, a decision that would shape my future.
After researching various options, the Trinity CertTESOL course stood out as the best fit. I enrolled in the 10-week online blended course, and it turned out to be a life-changing decision, marking one of the most extraordinary experiences of my 23 years of life. Admittedly, stepping into the world of teaching English was initially nerve-wracking, having never taught English in English before. However, the tutors were incredibly supportive and approachable. Their guidance and encouragement helped me navigate this new journey. The assignments were demanding, yet immensely rewarding, helping me grow both personally and professionally.
Throughout the course, I gained a wealth of knowledge and skills. Reflecting on my journey, I can confidently say that I am not the same person I was when I first enrolled. The TEFL course has been enlightening, enhancing not only my teaching abilities but also my confidence. It’s a journey that I will carry with me, benefitting me throughout my life.
The blended format of the course, offering both online learning and face-to-face teaching practice at TEFL in Italy, provided a comprehensive experience. Teaching face-to-face allowed me to apply what I learned in the online component, bridging the gap between theory and practice. This comprehensive approach prepared me for the real-world challenges of teaching English effectively.
In conclusion, my experience with the on-line TEFL course was transformative. It has strengthened my passion for teaching English and equipped me with the necessary tools to excel in this field. If you’re considering a career in teaching English, I wholeheartedly recommend this course—it could be the stepping stone to a fulfilling and enriching journey.
