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.

    Sorcha was very helpful in assisting me by sending me my 180hr level 5 cert online even though the course had expired. And also extended the other courses on my account by an extra month with no fuss. Excellent service.

    I'm South African and planning to teach English in Cambodia and Vietnam. I am going to sign up for the 30 hour IELTS EXAM course due to the need for people in those countries to meet the qualifying standards to study at English language universities etc.I must commend Walter Cullinan for the prompt responses given to my queries about the nature and scope of the course.I am not impressed, however, in his lack of faith in the Irish rugby team's chances of success against the Springboks.

    The TEFL institute of Ireland is a great option to get a TEFL certification. They have multiple levels of TEFL to choose from. You can complete the course at your own pace, and get extensions if needed. The staff are always there to help, and the one time I did need assistance, the TEFL advisor I spoke to, Sórcha O' Connell, was not only very helpful, but also got back to me almost immediately.
