Meet Joshua

Working abroad as an English Teaching Assistant has ignited a passion for English I never knew existed. Seeing how powerful the English language is, being able to convey thoughts, makes me want to enhance my knowledge of English. The additional TESOL qualification moulds a course that is perfect for my ambition; to be able to teach English to those who requires the full understanding of the language. I feel ready to immerse myself into a higher level of English and the high work load that the course requires, which I have steadily been preparing for. In my own time I have started to read more books, such as, Beginning Theory: An Introduction to Literary and Cultural Theory’ by Peter Barry and authors such as Alex Garland and D.H Lawrence, whose novels are fascinating. Exploring these different writing styles motivates me to learn about others. During my time at university, I will acquire new and refine existing skills. This includes: how to critically examine diverse forms of communication, improve my writing skills to create meaning between the lines and better my critical thinking skills. Learning these skills will be indispensable for all potential occupations. I was eager to gain some experience working in a different country so I went to Spain. I worked as an English Teaching Assistant, which forms part of my motivation to study the TESOL part of the course. One activity we planned was to set-up a market in the local town, where children ran their own stalls and sold items they made. This activity improved the children’s team-working skills and gave them an opportunity to use English in a practical way. Subsequently the children improved their ability to form questions, as they could do this quicker than before. As the year came to an end, I was teaching classes by myself and helping teachers with their English. I observed teachers and became aware of the fact that teachers need to have premeditated lesson plans, have excellent time management skills, adaptability and always thrive to improve themselves and their student's. I will be looking to enhance these skills during my time at University.

Where it all began? It started by being inspired by a 70 year Head Teacher Ms. Huong from Vietnam who insisted that I taught her and her staff English. I was on a journey of self-exploration, one of which I was traveling to get away from my old life and my open wounds that just wouldn’t heal. I nev
