The 120 hour TEFL course in-class training is our most popular option, this hands-on training allows you to study interactively, build your confidence in a group setting and receive more personable training. The course will focus on helping you to understand how your students will feel when hearing a foreign language, how to manage your classroom, the steps to follow when conducting your lesson, various different activities, and Thai culture. The in-class training is designed to assist with cultural immersion to ensure that you are fully prepared not only in the classroom, but also in the community.
We offer our students the unique opportunity to teach 6 full-length classes in a real Thai school with actual Thai students. During the training you will learn how to teach a class from start to finish. When you do the teaching practicums you will be given the chance to practice these techniques 6 times in an authentic environment. After all, the best way to learn is by putting your knowledge into practice, which is why our trainees are highly praised for being more prepared than most first-time teachers.
Prior to your arrival in Thailand, we will provide you all of the information that you need know. We are also available via email and happy to Skype if you require additional support. Once you arrive in Thailand, our staff has been praised for going above and beyond to assist our students.
In addition to the support from our staff, our in-class trainees tend to form close bonds with their fellow classmates. During the training you will be with each other, studying, lesson planning and during your free time. These newfound friendships tend to last after the training is complete and even after you leave Thailand, as you all shared a unique experience together.
For those that would rather not join the in-class training, it is possible to join our 120 hour TEFL course online; you will study the bulk of your training online, communicating with your trainer electronically. In addition to studying the theory online, you will still join the 6 teaching practicums alongside the in-class GoTEFL participants, for which the accommodation is still included. The online training is not subsidized; however you will still receive the guaranteed job placement.
