IAmA English as a Foreign Language teacher and language student - I speak Spanish, Japanese, French and German - I've lived and worked in many countries, currently Mexico, and I'm preparing to move to China soon
Originally from the UK, I've been teaching English as a foreign language teacher on and off for the past 10 years. I went back to get a real job at one point but missed the adventure too much and came to Mexico. What a lot of people do for a year or two and an excuse to travel has now turned into my career.
I've lived and worked in: Spain, Germany, France, Colombia, Japan, and Mexico and I've just accepted my next job, which will be in China.
My main reason for getting into this line of work in the first place was my desire to study other languages. I've studied a few of them now and have reached a degree of proficiency in each one. As this is my hobby and my profession, I believe I'm in a good position to offer advice to people who want to learn a new language. Currently, I'm making a start on Mandarin in preparation for my upcoming move.
I know a lot of people are curious about the lifestyle that TEFL affords you so I'm happy to answer any questions that you might have.
If you are curious about living in Mexico, my wife and I have made a few YouTube videos explaining what it's like to live here. Feel free to take a look.
