In Response To: Could anyone answer a few questions plz n thx (Dustin F)

I'll answer in a general manner.
1. GnB English School, South Korea
2. ESL instructor
3. TESOL is a growing industry with high levels of employment if you are willing to work for the usual package. I foresee my career centered in the TESOL industry with hopefully a change to teaching History/Geography at some point.
4. Pros are a big job market, you are virtually guaranteed a job if you want one. The joy of teaching and choice of exotic locales in which to ply your trade. Cons are very little professional development if you do not initiate it yourself. Not rich, not poor. Teaching can be high stress and many teachers can get burnt out/stagnant if they allow themselves to.
5. $2400-2500 USD monthly with 8 years experience.
6. TEFL certification with in class observation, 120hour min. Graduate level degrees will significantly raise your qualification and open more attractive doors.
7. It's a good profession, a way to work around the world, stay fresh, and make a decent living. Don't become the global cowboy who is over it all.
