Your Trip Itinerary

Day 2-14


Your orientation (whether online or in a hotel – depending on restrictions) 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, and take place after you complete any necessary quarantine hotel stay (check current Covid-19 requirements or contact our team for updates).

Day 15-134

Your teaching experience

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!
