Leaving for Sofia, Bulgaria

In a couple of days I will be leaving to attend a 5-week intensive Delta module two course at AVO Language School in Sofia. I have been working on the distance part in the last month (including my experimental practice and first drafts of LSA1), but the bulk of the course will be while I am there.

I have mixed feelings about it. I don’t really know what to expect. After my CELTA I felt on top of the world, I had worked hard but it felt like it had been really worth it. I am not sure I will feel the same about Delta, especially after reading comments of graduates from around the web.

Let’s say that rather than being something I really want to do to learn, this time it feels more like it is something that I have to do in order to progress in my career and become a teacher trainer (which is my current career goal). I hope to learn something useful and to improve as a teacher in the process.

It was my own decision to do this part of the course intensively, as I did not enjoy doing my module one over such a long span of time and while working. Now I am starting to worry that it might be a bit too intensive, but it is too late to worry now, I will have to keep calm, try not to take it too seriously while I do my best.

Oh, incidentally, this is my 100th post on this blog. 🙂

I will hopefully be able to write about my experience once I get back. In the meantime, I wish you all a happy summer/winter (depending on where you are on the globe). If you’d like to keep in touch, find me on Mastodon.
