Got off to a Good Start....Maybe...

As I mentioned here before, I made a step forward. First, I took a language course for English teachers called TESOL. I belong to a private language company and have taken teacher trainings there. I have a certificate, but it applies to only my company. I don't have any official license like a teacher license and would like to learn about what teaching methods are like from scratch.
I have heard of TESOL before and had been curious to take the lessons. I was undecided to do because I wasn't sure if my English would be eligible for the course. Yes, I have to admit I was a coward. However, I changed my mind and decided to think positive. I said to myself, "Go for it." I don't have any scores on the TOEFL test or the 1st grade of the STEP test, so I had to take a test to see if I would be eligible or not
I was surprised to see I passed the test because I had thought I would have to take extra lessons to take the course. The writing scores was surprising me the most: I got almost full marks in the writing section. I have practiced writing skills on this site and the efforts might have paid off. haha
Anyway, I have started taking the lessons and already submitted some tasks to my tutor.
I found the course so interesting and rewarding. I am looking forward to my tutor's feedback!

Another is that I took the TOEIC test last month. Its part of the form has been changed and it means examinees would be required more practical English.
After taking the test, I had been totally desperate. My scores would be miserable....I had thought.
However, it wasn't at all. It wowed me and I was walking on air. lol
I am not still satisfied with the results, of course, because I know there are some weak points that I have to work on.

Well, it sounds a good start and I am trying moving on to the next stage!


Hi, Ryoko san. Thank you for your comment here. I'm also happy to chat with you!

Yeah, the course is really interesting. I usually TEACH English, so I feel refreshed when I taking the lessons. XD

Hi VibrantRose san! It's been a while since I visited here last time. It was so nice to chat with you last night!! Chatting with you reminded of your blog this morning, and that's why I'm here! :)

Wow!! You are taking TESOL course! That's great!!! I know a few friends who took the course back in the 90s when I was studying in Boston. I think it will be great for your career too. Keep up the good work!!
