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

    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.

    Was a fun class, and Michelle Benson as a tutor brought lots of energy and good ideas for us to follow the teaching plan keeping it fluid and having everyone feeling engaged with the material (which is hard to do online). I'm looking forward to experiencing more of TEFL and see where it leads for me. Thank you kindly. :)

    I’m on assessment two out of three with the 190 hour level 5 diploma with the TEFL institute of Ireland. I am loving it so far and the flexibility of doing it is great and really suits my schedule. The course is affordable and they usually have offers on courses online. The completion time is 6 months which is an ideal amount of time. The tutors are great and very helpful if you have any questions. The course is challenging but achievable and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get into the world of teaching.

    I just finished an online teaching course with Michelle Benson. It was very well organised, her instructions were easy to follow, and she motivated everybody with lots of positive feedback during the sessions. She showed us through her example how online teaching can be fun and serious at the same time.
