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 have now completed the level 5 Diploma with TEFL Ireland and really enjoyed the experience. The course work was easy to follow with a good mixture of interactive elements and additional reading for self-learning. The assessment process was rigorous and challenging enough to be credible, with feedback and results returned in a timely manner. All in all, this course was very rewarding and the tutors Jessica and Olivia were always on hand to offer support and help when required. I took this course with a view to offering support to the migrant community in Ireland and I really cannot wait to get started now.

    The webinar on ‘How To Gain TEFL Experience’ was truly interactive and engaging! I can say that the speakers were knowledgeable, supportive, and always available to answers any questions the attendees asked. Several Jessica & Olivia covered several topics and gave insight on ways on how to gain TEFL experience; volunteering and teaching online. They also talked about the TEFL short 10 hour training course which will help teachers to deliver interesting and useful lessons to learners of all ages and levels in any classroom setting.Thank you! I appreciated the opportunity to hear from Premier TEFL experts!

    I recently contacted the TEFL Institute of Ireland to enquire about the various courses offered. Tracy was fantastic! She was so friendly and professional, answered all my questions comprehensively and followed up our call with a detailed email, recapping our conversation. I explained to Tracy what my previous TEFL experience was & what my future plans are, and she recommended exactly what course to do. Thank you!Friendly, professional customer service / Product Knowledge / Advice & recommendations ✔⭐
