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!

Making a Step Forward

I finally made some time to write my article here. I've been swamped with chores and work. I was almost worn out, but I managed to survive.

The other day, a students of mine gave me a letter after her lesson. She's the same age as my son and hardworking. In fact, it has been only two years since she started to learn English at my class; nevertheless, she has a good command of English. I should say she's a quick learner as well as hardworking.
The letter she gave me said the following:

"I'm happy to learn English at your class and I hope I can use English like you. You're so lively that I'm amazed at your vitality every time I take your lessons.---Text partly omitted--- I want to be a ground staff working at an airport in the future, so I have to study harder. Besides, I hope I'll surpass you one day."

After reading this letter, I was so moved and saw her growth. I'm sure she'll pull it off. At the same time, thanks to her letter, I was inspired a lot. As I'm always saying, I love to try something new and interesting, and I stick to think positive.
I don't want to excuse myself for whatever I can't do.

For that reason, I made a step forward! hehe
I have a couple of things to try. I don't know how long it takes to attain my goals, but I moved forward.

More power to me!!!
