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.
