    If you haven't been paying attention to the news lately, North Korea has been testing it's nuclear missiles and have sent out videos threatening annihilation of the United States of America. Now while some may say that this is all empty talk, like a million threats over the years, this crazed communist country has never been closer to creating a potent missile to strike USA before. And the threats back then were more indirect pleas for aid and assistance to feed a starving population.

    Loneliness is an inevitable byproduct of moving to a new country and you ought to get used to spending Saturday nights with a pizza and reruns of friends, big bang theory and what not.

    Or that's at least what most people think would be the likely scenario when making a decision with regards to relocating to a foreign country. Now while such a situation is certainly not uncommon, you don't have to be boxed into such a binary model of a hermit's life.

    Why should you learn Spanish if you take a TEFL course in Spain?

    One of the most common questions people ask when it comes to TEFL courses in Spain is whether they'll be able to successfully carry on with their lives and be a good TEFL teacher without the knowledge of the local language, Spanish. 

    Let's get something straight out of the bat. Knowledge of Spanish is not necessary to become a TEFL teacher in Spain. In fact, conversations in Spanish are highly discouraged in classrooms, so as to inculcate a sense and habit of English fluency and reduce the incidences of fallback to the native language during pauses and conversations.

    The key to getting an English teaching job is turnover and knowing the hiring seasons.

    Off season Hiring: Jobs do open during the off season as not all schools fill every job and employees do not always stay for their full term.  Follow our professional advice regarding hiring seasons and the interview process and you will find opportunities.

    Many jobs entail 10 to 12 month contracts. September, October are busy hiring periods with many contracts ending in July. January is a secondary season. Main period will be about 50-60% turnover. Secondary season about 25%.

    Summer camps in Europe offer great opportunities for those looking for shorter commitments.
