Spend three weeks on the beautiful island, Koh Phangan completing your 120 hour TEFL course. This course will ensure you're confident and prepared when you step into the classroom for the first time. Koh Phangan, while famous for it's full moon party, is a relaxed and quiet island outside of the monthly party! There are white sandy beaches, beautiful sunsets, waterfalls and viewpoints to explore, snorkeling and island hopping trips or take part in cooking or yoga classes. There's a lot on offer on the island, and a great place to explore in your free time outside of the course. Koh Phangan is between Koh Samui and Koh Tao, and both islands are easily accessible from Koh Phangan.
The course covers the important aspects of how to teach English in a fun and engaging manner. Areas covered over the three weeks include classroom management, lesson planning, how to introduce vocabulary and correcting errors, as well as games and activities, teaching different ages and abilities, assessing students and the theory behind teaching English. The course is interactive, you won't be sitting all day listening to lectures! You'll be playing games and completing activities so you can see them in action, as well as teaching your peers to gain valuable experience in front of a class. Every day you'll have a Thai lesson, which will not only help you gain a better understanding of what it is like for your students, but also help when you are in your teaching placement.
" You can never be fully prepared for the classroom, but this course gives you the resources and knowledge needed to go into your first class as confident and prepared as you can be."
- Robert Souksavath, May 2017
The social aspect of the course means that you'll have a network of new friends to catch up with when you're in your teaching placement. This helps you settle in quickly and have a group of like minded people around you and share the experience with.
At the completion of the TEFL course you'll then start your guaranteed paid teaching position. Your school and details will be arranged prior to your arrival, so you'll have the reassurance of knowing exactly where you'll be going. The teaching placements offer a salary of 30,000 THB / month, and work permit expenses covered. You'll continue to receive support throughout your time working at the school, including assistance in finding accommodation, settling in and any additional support you might need.
We're passionate about teaching in Thailand and we want you to have the best experience possible.
