Hey everyone, I’m Sean. I am 26 years old and from Lismore in county Waterford, Ireland.  I worked in healthcare in Cork before beginning TEFL. However, I had always wanted to teach. I decided to go into teaching for a longer time in Thailand after doing volunteer work in Vietnam and Kenya. This was the ideal chance with The TEFL Institute after viewing the possibility of doing the voluntary Thailand internship.

    Teach & Travel

    One of the tasks of volunteer teachers is to create and deliver games and activities for the students that help improve their English and pronunciation. Oftentimes, learning will take place in a traditional Thai public school classroom. Typical class sizes are around 30-35 students. However, occasionally, learning will occur in a camp-like setting, either in a common area of the school (often outside) or in an off-site location.

    Work Schedule

    Work Schedule

    As an intern, you will volunteer from approximately 8 AM to 4 PM Monday through Friday each week. You will have free weekends and Thai public holidays to explore the towns and beaches. Depending on the school’s needs, you will teach kindergarten and/or primary school students.

    I have just enrolled in the program so I don't know enough yet to comment on the lectures. Five stars, at this point, are going to Elaine Lenane for her guidance even before my enrolment, and all the help provided by her. I am ever so grateful to her. Also, 10% coupon helped a lot. Thank you for that TEFL Institute!UpdateI'm on my 4th Module now and I can say that I love it so far.You can do as much or as little as you can at any given time, and the lessons are easy to follow.The further reading, though, needs to be bought additionally. That is a downside.I do recommend The TEFL Institute of Ireland, because the help is only an email away when you need it.Keep up the good work!

    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.

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!
