Welcome to TEFLProse!

No that’s not a typo, it’s the name of our blog. Prose, get it? As in writing. Ok, you got it. Our blog is a place where you can get all sorts of odds and ends about teaching, living abroad, jobs and whatever else Jos and Whitney feel like you might enjoy reading on that particular day. This is a spot where we want to share some useful tips with you in a “real human” way. Please excuse our bad hair days and casual writing style, we want to have a little fun too!
