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.

    I completed the 30 Hour Teaching English Online Course that was included in my purchase of the 150 Hour TEFL Course and thoroughly enjoyed it. Didn’t take as long as I thought it would and includes many tips and softwares that you can use during lessons. Extremely helpful and great addition to my CV ⭐️

    The 10 hour virtual course in teaching English will I'm sure be invaluable to me on my TEFL journey . With no Zoom experience at all I was very apprehensive to begin with but Michelle Benson made the whole experience a truly memorable fun experience making each participant welcome and relaxed from the beginning ...Thank you very much Michelle
