Step 2.5

Thanks to the incredible generosity of my parents, the step between 2 and 3 is complete, and I am registered for a TEFL certification program:

Dear Vanessa Cooper,

Thank you for registering with Oxford Seminars. We are pleased to confirm that you have successfully enrolled in the TESOL/TEFL certification course #9556, being held on Sept. 19, 20, 26, 27, Oct. 3, 4 in Houston (University of St. Thomas).

Hooray! It seems far away but I'm sure it'll be here before I know it.

4. Find/get hired for job in Buenos Aires
