Working for English First has been an amazing experience. I've met people from all over the world and travelled in Asia during my vacations. There's a real sense of community among the teachers, we all support each other and I've built some great friendships.

I've been with English First for 3 years now. I started as a teacher and now I'm an academic manager. My plan was to stay for 1 year, but English First has development courses and more certifications that I've chosen to take over time allowing me to progress into management.
