  • From TESL/TEFL Student to ALI Facilitator – A Student’s Journey
    work with different people from different countries like Japan China Korea and Germany It s a pleasure and it s an experience I will not forget in my life TESL TEFL Program Q A Why did you decide to enroll in the program My initial goal was linguistics and to earn my master s in linguistics but now I know facilitating is a great opportunity and the program helped me to attain this position I have come to realize I can do more because there are more opportunities available at SDSU and the ALI Who knows I might transition what I ve learned into something other than language work maybe get my MSA Master of Science in Accountancy So you re using the TESL TEFL program as a stepping stone to future goals The program was excellent Yes a stepping stone for me that helped me to study more and encouraged me to reach my goals What were your initial thoughts about the program after you started it From the day I started the program the program coordinator was really supportive in each and every aspect He was really helpful and then I found out he was going to teach most of the classes He was always there for me There are many people at the ALI that help you succeed One of the aspects I found fascinating was that there were staff and teachers there to help you get a job abroad which most TESL TEFL students eventually want to experience They help with your resume CV For example one of my classmates is now working in Korea Tags American Language Institute nosheen rizai TESL TEFL Comments Closed Comments are closed You will not be able to post a comment in this post ALI Program Blogs Semester SDSU Posts
