Tunja, ColombiaI have wanted to travel internationally as long as I can remember…I began considering how I would fund myself while traveling...I volunteered to teach immigrants in Virginia back in college and recalled how much I loved teaching people from all over the world. At that point, it just made sense to try and find a way to teach English while abroad.
Lisbon, PortugalI have surpassed my expectations of living abroad and teaching…Since obtaining my Bridge certificate, I have taught in a Portuguese school ranging from Pre-A1-B1.1 proficiency levels…Without taking that first step of beginning the Bridge course, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
