Paul’s Story

Paul Dixon, 24, graduated from York St John University and jetted off to Japan to start his first TEFL adventure!

“I graduated from university in 2009 from a Film and TV course. Initially when I began the course I was planning on going into the industry but unfortunately the loss of jobs meant I had to re think everything. I reviewed my skills and having spent 2 years working in an educational museum I thought I would go into teaching, BUT I did not want to teach in England.

I came across i-to-i, signed up on the Professional TEFL Course and have never regretted it… By doing my TEFL course it not only meant I was able to teach English with the newly learnt skills and know how, but also to see the world. I have been able to use my TEFL qualification and my degree to get a job in Japan.

Since completing the course in January 2010 I accepted a job working in Japan in Miyako City. My adventure has only just begun. Who knows what will happen now that the world is truly my oyster.”
