Unless you can find another course with as much practice teaching as ILI, don’t bother. This is where all the growth happens. If you’re going to teach people, you need to learn from and with people.

Interacting with the international students makes the month go by quickly. Be careful, the students and your peers become your friends, it will be hard to say goodbye to them at the end of the month.
