Travel to Bangkok airport (BKK) where you will take a short taxi ride to your orientation hotel.

Your orientation will help you to prepare for your exciting new journey in Thailand before you start teaching. After the orientation, you will receive a full onsite induction on arrival will last around 3 days.

It’s time to start teaching. You will be mostly teaching learners ranging in age from 5 – 18 years old with mixed English ability. From beginners to more advanced students. You can prepare to teach approx. 25 hours plus some time to plan your lessons following the in-house curriculum.

Your goal as an intern English teacher will be focused mostly on conversational English practice but you might be asked to share some of your knowledge on a different subject from geography to maths, depending on your CV and degree.  You will be given a lot of materials from the school itself but feel free to log in to your TEFL course and create some new ideas and topics.

With weekends off and a great start-up salary to enjoy, you will have a long list of sightseeing and travel plans around Thailand!

Congratulations, well done on the completion of your first teaching placement. Now, you can decide if you’d like to see more of Asia or extend your contract with the school, travelling or teaching (or both).

The possibilities are endless for you now as a confident and experienced TEFL teacher.

I spent a lot of time looking at both the Thailand and Vietnam  internships. During this time I was in touch with The TEFL Institute and Ola was great for giving me any info I wanted and answering any questions. One thing that hugely drew me to these two internships was the one semester contract they offered with the option to renew if you wanted.

    I was called back by the lovely Elaine who made sure all my questions were answered and kept me in the loop about special offers available on courses that she thought would suit me! She gave me advice on what other services are available via the TEFL Institute such as the jobs board and she completely shared in my excitement about getting going! I'm looking forward to getting started, thanks Elaine ✨

    I participated in the 10 hour virtual teaching course with Michelle Benson. Michelle is knowledgeable, experienced, and patient, and she created a supportive and productive environment. The course zipped along at a jaunty pace, and was an excellent introduction to the practicalities of teaching.

    I just finished the 10 hour Virtual TEFL course under Michelle Benson's expert tutoring. She's a fun and purely vocational teacher. She makes it rather easygoing.I had read the manual before hand but I believe it's not really necessary to do so nor to open it whilst following the course. Michelle shares the info on her screen.As a teacher myself, I expected a much more complex and demanding approach so if you're completely new to the subject, it's exactly what you need. It's just the right place to lose your fear and feel comfortable in front of others.I would have appreciated a longer course to be able to go into more detail and "polish" certain aspects but, all in all, it gives you an idea of what is expected from you as a TEFL teacher.Thanks a mil. Michelle.

    I did the 10h Virtual TEFL course and I had a great time. I was quite nervous since I am not the most comfortable talking to new people, but the tutor, Michelle Benson, was so friendly and so were the other students. The class was engaging, some points that were taught in the 180h course where I was confused were so simply explained (how to distinguish the tenses for example). The atmosphere was great, laughs here and there. The presentation wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, I thought I'd be more nervous, but all of the encouragement from everyone towards each other was great. Very enjoyable experience. Would definitely recommend. Now I'm not as daunted by zoom classes lol. God bless :)
