What I liked
I worked as a summer internship instructor at the Konan University. I got to work with four different professors and taught in eight EFL (English as a Foreign Language) classes. That was a fantastic experience! Firstly, my long-term career goal is to teach second language classes in colleges. This internship has allowed me to see what it is like to teach university students. I know for a fact now that it is a goal that I'd like to work towards. Also, the professors gave me so much room to practice teaching. They were not afraid of letting me take control of the class. I was even asked to design a new course which helps polish up students' speaking skills. There were no guidelines nor textbooks. I created everything from scratch. It was not easy, but I now have so much experience in researching and making lesson plans because of this experience. I came up with a lot of effective ways to teach English. Last but not least, I have developed the friendship with the students, professors, and my host family in Japan. I love everything about my internship.
