Earning a living teaching others is my dream, but not just being an ordinary teacher. I plan to pursue a degree in English with a minor in Mandarin. Once I accomplish that, I plan to go overseas and teach children in China and surrounding provinces English. I also plan to travel to other countries and teach English as a second language. I want the opportunity to teach many students of many different backgrounds outside of my own homeland.
Spreading the ability to read and write what is becoming the universal language can really give students the upper hand in life. With the ability to read and write more than one language they will be able to become cultured and valued individuals in their own and other societies.
The children are what shape the entire population of Earth’s future. Exchanging our language and culture with them could change the world immensely in a positive way. Educating children in this way would mean that there would be less of a language and culture barrier between countries like China and our own. Through this exchange of cultures we learn to accept, appreciate, and respect one another. My hopes are that through education we can create a world in which people are more accepting of one another and informed about what makes other places so spectacular.
