As of 2.15 this afternoon, I was accepted into the International House Costa Rica franchise of Cambridge's TESOL program.
In plainer words: I'M GOING TO COSTA RICA FOR A MONTH!
This beats the crap out of my original plan of finishing a CELTA program in NYC, both in terms of price and in terms of pure awesome. An official TEFL certificate will be an edge back in Korea; one from Cambridge doubly-so (CELTA is one of the most-respected programs in the TEFL business). I will be too busy to travel around Costa Rica during the course, so I'm taking an extra week at the end of the course to properly see the country. Stay tuned for wacky Central American traveling antics!
