QuickWrite 091211 “10 years ago”

10 years ago, I started my career as an English teacher at AEON, an English conversation school. I participated in a 5 day-initial training sessions with a grand finale of doing a demonstration lesson in front of a trainer. She always smiled gracefully, but never did her eyes. I was rather nervous on the first teaching day while pretending to be enjoying the pressure. It turned out that teaching was way more interesting and exciting than I had expected, which has been a driving force to this day to keep me going ahead.

10 years ago, my English proficiency was far less developed. I took the TOEIC test just once for the application of the aforementioned teaching job, let alone wasn’t a 990er. English-related certificates that I had was only the STEP pre-1st grade which I obtained when I was a freshman. I knew there lay a long, long way for me to pass the STEP 1st grade and never thought I could pass it someday. Among four skills of English, reading, writing, listening, speaking, the lowest was my speaking ability. When native English speaking colleagues were chatting cheerfully at school, I joined the conversation, but couldn’t sustain the talk due to my lack of listening and speaking skills, literacy, cultural background knowledge, and other multiple factors.

10 years ago, I was much more insecure and shaky inside. It was right after when I had struggled through a dark, crazy, dreary decade in my twenties (hyperbole alert!). I was a bit more down to the earth after that, but still had no clear ideas about how I wanted to lead my life, what I really wanted to do in my life. 10 years since then has taught me many important things in life, but I still think I haven’t gotten so much farther than 10 years ago.
