Still Undecided About Your Future? Teach English Abroad!
From a young age, most people usually know what they want to be when they grow up. Some aspire to be doctors while there are also others who dream of going big and becoming the next Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg. There are also others who prefer to live a simple life. While for most people, their future lives have already been mapped out for them. Unfortunately, the future is filled with so much uncertainty that even the most solid of plans can fail and there are also those who are still undecided about what they want to do in life.
If you’re one of those who are still on the road to discovery, why not be productive while you’re discovering yourself? Why not teach English abroad? If you’re not that convinced about the option to travel and teach English, then here are some reasons why you should.
- One of the biggest perks of teaching English abroad is that you are given ample opportunities to travel. In fact, travelling is part of the job! When you teach English in Thailand and any other foreign country, you get to experience their culture, new foods, new people, and even new life experiences. Also, teaching English abroad comes with decent amount of vacations which mean you can travel to different nearby countries if you like.
- If you are looking to grow as a person and discover yourself, you may not be able to do so if you stay grounded to the place you’ve lived in for most of your life. When you teach English abroad, you make a difficult decision of leaving everything you have grown accustomed to in favour of something new, something raw and something mysterious. Yes, living in a foreign country may sound scary at first but throughout your time there, you’ll become more disciplined, more mature, more educated and you may even find what you are looking for.
- Travelling and living in another country holds so many uncertainties and along the way, you’ll become less fearful of these uncertainties and realize that life is meant to be uncertain and every day brings a new journey.
