Student Again? And Mother and Daughter

My feeling is inclining to take up a course to become a certified TESOL instructor. There are issues to be resolved, e.g. my visa which expires just when the course starts. And when I have to be active in searching a job, this costs me a substantial amount of $$. However, this certification would protect me in the future to an extent, if not guarantee, in terms of employment. There are always people who want to learn the language. I should talk to the course director to be sure of what she can do to extend my visa without my flying out of the country. This time’s trip plans, whether to Myanmar or Vietnam, are forced upon me, and I don’t think I have enough time to prepare “psychologically,” even though those countries are just “over there.” I’m an old chicken.
