We began our Oxford Seminars Teaching English as a Second Language course on Saturday and just got home from Day 2.
All I can say is WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!! We love it. And I have not seen Mike this excited about anything in such a long time.
We met our instructor, Karen, in November when we went through an Oxford Seminars orientation. She is amazing – a bundle of energy that just returned from a 9-year teaching stint in Japan. Her teaching stories are “real” and learning about Japanese culture has been eye-opening.
And the other students are sooooo varied in age, experience, goals, personality, and more. After spending so much time with Mike here in our house in Duvall working on getting the house ready to sell it has been VERY refreshing to meet and work with other people that are of a like mindset.
Lastly, thank you Denise for all of your helpful info about Oxford Seminars! We can see that you and Billy are happy teaching in Indonesia and we dream about the day that we drive up to our new home in Mexico and begin the second half of our lives.
