My life has finally taken a slight turn for the better . I've been accepted to the Boston Academy of English for their 4-week TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certification Program, which begins March 31, 2008 (A WHOLE MONTH IN BOSTON!!!! ). I have 2 months left on my work authorization, after which I'll have another 2 months to get ready to go to Boston. But before that, I've been asked by the school to 'drop by' one of these days to take a look and get a feel of what the program is like and how it's run. So here's the important part: this school is on Temple Place, which is about a 20-minute walk from Copley Place . OK, no, this is the really important part : I'm planning to 'drop by' Boston sometime during the week of January 7-13, 2008 to look at the school, and become reacquainted with the city, because it's been over a year since I was there. I'll be staying at the Radisson Hotel on Stuart Street (obviously I had to choose a hotel right in between the school and Copley Place ). I'll be moving to Boston a week before the program starts, so tentatively March 24, 2008. And I'll be there for about a month! I'd love to meet with anyone who's living in the Boston vicinity. If we can't meet during that week in January, we have a whole MONTH to meet up in March! So PM me if you'd like to meet up and maybe we can plan something, yes?
