Reviews of BSEd in English graduates:

S. O.
◈ Studied BSED major in English
◈ At Foundation University
◈ Graduated 1993

list bulletAbout my college education: To me its a bit of everything, most of the time it is interesting, there are portions of it that it gets difficult just like any other courses and of course the demands is challenging.

The skills that are required to succeed with this course is of course you have to have a wide knowledge of the English language, not only in spoken but also in written.

list bulletMy current job: At the moment I am a stay at home mother, though my kids are grown up now, i have a little girl that I adore,i have 4 kids, 3 now, my 5 year old passed away with cancer 3 years ago, i have not really gotten the mindset to work the past few years because of my loss, but now I have to get up and move on because my family needs me.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Well the basic things I learned I am using it, i was able to learn how to speak very good English, very fluent both written and spoken, although being married to an american for 11 years helped a lot too. I speak with no Visayan accent, in fact I was always told that I speak like I was from the US.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: To be honest with you finding job is hard since there's high unemployment here, i was employed I think maybe 3 years after as an English tutor, and although it was part time, it helped a lot.

list bulletDo I recommend studying BSEd in English: I would recommend it if you are talking about someone that has dreams of becoming a teacher or something like that, but with regards to salary level and employment opportunities I probably will take a step back, i only took the course because I belong to a family of teachers, my grands, my aunts, my sister, all in the field of education, but to be practical I think I would consider other courses
