WHY TAKE A TESOL/TEFL COURSE IN MADAGASCAR
Little did we know about Madagascar when we met the first people from there. Remembering geography, we knew it is in Africa. What we then learned about Madagascar was a sheer endless, awe-inspiring discovery of a magical island that is 260 miles off the coast of southeast Africa in the Indian Ocean.It’s a little hard to get here. There are few flights from Paris and Johannesburg, and they take some time. It explains it that Madagascar is not overrun by tourists. Over millions of years, this island had time to evolve in perfect isolation. Madagascar is unspoiled and spectacular. It is unlike any other part of the continent. Yet it manages to look like an all-in-one mix of African countries. It has the azure waters of Zanzibar, the mangroves of Congo, the rolling green hills of South Africa’s wild coast, and the fiery sunsets of the Serengeti. Madagascar is a jewel for any outdoor and wildlife enthusiast.
