Your trip Itinerary

When you arrive, our in-country team will greet you and the other interns (unless you must complete a quarantine). After the one-week orientation, you’ll travel to your placement area.

When you arrive, you’ll get a full week of cultural orientation.

Our in-depth culture and language orientation takes place in Phnom Penh and is a one-week, comprehensive, active learning, culture, history and language programme.

Workshops and activities include:

· Khmer language lessons
· Cambodian history, culture, geography and society
· Overcoming culture shock
· Cambodian cooking class
· Visit the Killing Fields and museum to learn about Cambodia’s past
· Market trips
· Visit a Buddhist temple to learn about religion in Cambodia

You will have the opportunity to teach in Cambodian language schools as well as private schools.
These two options may have different teaching hours. Language schools, for example, are busiest on Saturday and Sunday. Teachers teach on weekends and then take time off during the week. Private schools typically operate Monday through Friday, so teachers work during the week and are off on weekends. In both schools, you will primarily teach young students, but there are some high school positions available.

 

Congratulations, you did it! Be sure to congratulate yourself on your accomplishment. It’s time to choose whether you want to see more of Cambodia, travel, or teach (or both).

Alyssa

Hello! Alyssa is my name; I’m 22 years old and half German and half French. Hence, not a native English speaker. I began working in sales after completing my education in business. I did, however, recognize that there was still a lot to learn about this universe. Thus, I decided to apply for a TEFL internship in Cambodia, and here I am!

    I recently completed the 10 hour Virtual TEFL course in Advanced Teaching Methodologies. Michelle Benson was truly excellent in her role, providing invaluable support and experience for all of us who are considering our future with TEFL. Would highly recommend anyone considering a career as a TEFL teacher to participate in future. Thank you Michelle:)!

    Brilliant resources provided by this institute to get teachers started on their language teaching Journey. I have completed both the 180 Hour Level 5 Diploma and the 30 hour Online Teaching Course which were both beneficial

    Having finished my 180 TEFL course I found the 10hr Virtual by Michelle Kaufmann very useful to get a taste of what it is like as a student of a TEFL course and the barriers and confusion that they may experience not being taught in their own language. As a class we were given demonstrations on how to overcome these barriers and also an opportunity to put them into practice. It also highlighted the areas I need to work on as a teacher. Wonderful advice given, appreciated it. 😊
