If You've Been Thinking About Working Abroad, DO IT!

If you (like me) have been thinking working abroad and you have the means to do it at this time in your life DO IT! It was amazing and whenever I had doubts or questions Greenheart did their best to honestly answer my questions which always calmed my nerves and made me feel that even though I was going on the journey by myself, I was never alone.

I really felt prepared for the culture shock and to go in with no expectations. I appreciate that all of the blogs and webinars did not sugar coat anything and I never felt like I was being sold this experience. I think the program presented the opportunity and some of the things (good and challenging) that would come along with the experience and let me decide if I was right for me. If I did not have this program to answer my initial questions with quick thorough responses I think I would have been more hesitant to go.

I know everyone leaves their placement differently but I wish there were some guidelines on things that should be done before you leave. I am currently having trouble getting money out of my account because I got paid after I left.

Overall, if you're thinking doing this Greenheart will give you the support you need and there is always someone to answer your questions to the best of their ability. They are not trying to sell you on it or make it sound anything other than what the trip honestly is!

Thailand Program Review

Thank you Greenheart for these opportunities to travel and be apart of the greater world! There are so many programs abroad, but the support from Sara was unique in that she truly felt like we could always rely on her and her at any time before, during and even now after the TESOL program is over. JUST DO IT, with an open mind and heart. No expectations, always go with the flow and trust the process.

Great experience in Vietnam!

Greenheart was fantastic for me - I literally had no issues and they answered any questions that I had. They made everything very easy to follow. There was always someone to answer questions in a very timely fashion. The authentication and notarization of documents was a bit confusing to me - I had never done anything like that before so I am not sure if it was me or the documentation - odds are it was me :-)

My advice for a new participant would be enjoy yourself - I was a little nervous at first the process but Greenheart was fantastic!

Great experience in Thailand

With Greenheart I liked the quick and detailed responses. When nervous to go live and work abroad for the first time it helped give me ease that someone was there to help at all times! The main reason I was on the fence was the cost of the program. I would tell that person that every penny is worth it. It is worth it to have Greenheart Travel help with the visa, plane ticket, TESOL course, and any other question you may have going abroad. It is new territory for most people and once the departure gets closer, the most random questions will pop up into your head but Greenheart has heard them all and has answers for them all. If they don't, they will fin them. I couldn't imagine having to go over to Asia on my own and finding a job or TESOL course and the money I spend was well worth it!

When people say keep an open mind, they mean it. You will meet all types of personalities, you will stay in various accommodations, and you will travel to places with amazing cultures but they will be very different from your own. If you have an open mind, it will be life changing and you'll be able to appreciate everyday. Otherwise, you may find the negative in situations and miss the normalcy of home. You are doing this to have new experiences, so be ready!

Honestly, everything that got me to Thailand was incredibly helpful. Everything from when I would receive certain information or materials to what items I should pack was provided to me and I couldn't be more grateful.

Homestay in France spring 2017

Overall, my two month homestay in France was a very positive experience for me and I learned a lot. I just wanted to thank Megan Arzbaecher at Greenheart Travel for her help and enthusiasm. I think I was fortunate that I'm independent and don't mind doing things by myself because the family really didn't have a lot of extra time. Also the fact that I speak French helped a lot, it would have been quite challenging otherwise as I needed to do a lot of navigating by myself.

In terms of the English teaching, the family's main goal was to prepare for a holiday they were going to take in California, we have kept in touch and they let me know the holiday went really well for them and all the English lessons and my efforts with them really helped and made a difference to them. I was delighted to hear that it was a positive and beneficial experience for them also.
