Describe your academic, professional, and personal background, and how your experiences will make you an effective teacher in Chile. *

As someone from a small town in New York, I have always been interested in the wider world, especially in other cultures and societies. As an undergraduate this led me to major in International Relations; through international relations is a varied field, including everything from diplomacy to international security to economics, the area of study that interested me most was in the field of development economics. My aspiration is to to join the Peace Corp and then eventually to work in the field of development. Learning another language is a vital part of studying International relations;I began studying French in middle school and continued through my undergraduate years.While other students seemed easily grasp the grammar, I struggled to memorize verbs and tenses. The patience and persistence of my professor and teachers was the determining factor in achieving fluency. Having spent 10 years learning a language, I understand how difficult it is to learn a foreign language. I feel that because I have gone through the process of learning a foreign language myself, I will be better able to understand and aid my students as they learn English. Working in a museum as costumed interpreter is good preparation for working in a classroom; you quickly learn to hold the attention of the room, while trying simultaneously entertain and inform. As an costumed interpreter, you get people of all ages, nationalities and varying degrees of historical knowledge; learning to adapt yourself to your audience is a skill that is useful as a museum interpreter and as a teacher. I feel that my time as a student abroad has given me the tools to successfully interact in cross cultural situations. A majority of my fellow students came from around the world; working and learning in that environment teaches you to become more flexible and adaptive.

Hi, your essay is well written, but there are some issues with the overall flow and grammar mistakes.

As an undergraduate this led me to major in International Relations; through though international relations is a varied field, including everything from diplomacy to international security to economics, the area of study that interested me most was in the field of development economics

the area of study that interested me most was in thefield of development economics. My aspiration is to to join the Peace Corpand then eventually to work in the field of development.

- you say that you are interested in econ but then in the next sentence you jump to your aspirations which is to join the Peace Corp. I'm not sure of the relation between the two sentences.
