I want to do this course because my long-term career goal is to become an English language teacher. In the summer of 2010 I graduated with a full honours degree in Communications and Journalism studies. I have a passion for writing with a particular interest in sports journalism, so I would like to think I have a very good understanding of the English language.
As the son of immigrants I know the hardship people face in the western world when they do not understand English. As a child growing up I regularly translated for my parents and would teach them to understand key words, phrases and how to read letters and important documents. In that sense I would say I already have some degree of unconventional teaching experience.
I think I am strongly suited to this course as I have a passion for English and would like to teach others. I have proven with my studies that I can work to deadlines and hand in assignments of very high quality. I am genuinely excited about this course, the opportunities that it can provide to teach abroad and expand my horizons whilst doing the same for others.
I hope that once I have completed this course I will be able to start a career as an English language teacher either in the UK or abroad. I would someday like to start my own school in my native Somalia and teach others what I have learned and improve their life opportunities.
