Brenda also used a Groupon (online super discounters) for a Tesol class. Tesol (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) is a certification class to teach English as a foreign language. Mike says this will make Brenda employable anywhere tropical. Sweet, he can fish and drink rum runners while Brenda is off supporting our new lifestyle.
