I like TESOL because it focuses on people who have no teaching experience but like languages and it gave me the chance to communicate with other people of diverse cultural backgrounds. I also like the people of Newcastle; they are so friendly and kind.
Applicants should have a good honours degree or equivalent and be able to demonstrate an interest in becoming a teacher of English to speakers of other languages.
