How To Teach English Online: An Introduction to Amazing Talker

Teaching English online is now one of the easiest ways native English speakers can earn a little extra money. There are many different websites that allow you to teach English full time to children and adults across the globe, all you need is a TEFL certificate and you’re on your way! A couple of months ago when I decided I was going to teach English in Spain I decided to earn my TEFL certificate online. I knew that having this certificate would make it a lot easier for me to start working especially as I had no previous experience in English as a Second Language (ESL) teaching. Once I had the qualification, I realised how high demand was for English teachers online. Especially during Covid, when students across the world are learning online the need is greater than ever! I applied for a position on Amazing Talker and have been working on their platform for the last couple of months. This has allowed me to earn a little bit of extra money while I get settled in Madrid.

I’m sure we can all agree that the world has been a pretty scary place in the last few months. Personally, I’ve felt like we’ve all been in limbo – not really sure when “normality” will resume or even what the new normal will look like. The fear and worry of it all have been all-consuming for so many of us. Especially in terms of what’s to come and what the world will be like this time next year. This fear, however, has pushed me to make a life change and finally do something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I’ve decided to hand my notice in, pack my bags and move to Madrid, Spain to work as an English Teacher.

Working abroad is something that sounds like an amazing opportunity but the question of how to do it can be so daunting that it ends up putting people off. Moving to a new country, starting a new life and meeting new people in a completely different country to where you’re used to is scary! But, it is one of those experiences that can change your life.

I have had the opportunity to work abroad a couple of times, both have been completely different experiences; from a live-in babysitter to a waitress in Disneyland Paris. After my last post, I have been inspired to look a little more into work abroad options for those of you who are desperate to live abroad either forever or maybe just a summer.

Featured Photo by Sebastien Gabriel on Unsplash

Failure is terrifying. Failing will make you question who you are and what your direction is in life. We are conditioned to believe that we need to consistently be the best and always be striving for success. Therefore, when we fall even a little bit short of that, we feel like we might as well just give up.

So, what happens when everything crumbles and you fall to your rock bottom? Your failure is so grand that you can’t even imagine pulling yourself up from it?

My Hair History

I have been a slave to my hair straighteners for over half of my life.

I remember spending hours every night washing, drying and straightening my unruly and frizzy hair into submission. I was about 11 when I first started using my sisters’ hand me down straightening iron that took about 30 minutes to heat up and I’ve been fighting with my hair ever since.

Lessons From My Younger Self

I’ve spoken before about how hard it was for me to turn 25. I struggle because there’s a part of me that thinks I haven’t achieved enough to warrant getting older. I find myself thinking if only I’d started my blog sooner or, if only I’d studied something different at university. I would have had it figured out by now and then I’d be one step closer to being truly happy in what I’ve achieved. Instead of feeling lost and confused about what direction to take and blaming my younger self for not figuring it all out for me.
