Back to the daily grind.

Whilst most of my colleagues went back to work on the 2nd, I wasn’t quite sure if I’d be going back at all. Since my work permit application is taking a while, I’ll be in the UK for another few weeks. Thankfully BEET needed another teacher and I get to go back to my job for a little while longer.

What that does mean, however, is back to the never-ending nights of planning, creating worksheets and losing sleep over how I can help all of my students. I’m worried about how I’ll fit it all in with my packing and getting ready for China.

Yesterday afternoon I spent 4 hours trying to plan how I’m going to start off my lessons this morning… do I need worksheets? do I take it easy? Should I encourage them to write on a Monday morning? Should I bring games? I DON’T KNOW!!


I’ve missed my job so much in the past 4 weeks! My colleagues are some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met and knowing that I’m working my butt off every day to try and help make a difference for my students makes me feel so positive.

I’m back guys. I’ll be doing my very best for you. I promise.


New week, new job.

So I’ve spiralled straight out of my CELTA course and flying into a teaching job at ITTC’s sister school, BEET! 

Am I nervous? Absolutely.

 Am I excited? Definitely.

It’s a prestigious language school, where students from all over world move to Bournemouth especially to study there! Keep your fingers crossed for me guys… 🤞🏻
