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 had an issue today with my account and Sorcha from the Tefl Institute of Ireland was very helpful and sorted out the situation. I have gone for the Italy Internship and i have to say, I have gained insights from the directors of studies who interviewed me so far. The great thing with this company that is you will be assisted all the way with anything that you need. Thank you.

    Customer Care was fantastic, the horrors of attempting to navigate through all the different TEFL courses on Google was anxiety inducing and nauseating, however stumbling across the TEFL Institute of Ireland and having a chat with Sorcha definitely calmed my nerves a bit. Sorcha was extremely helpful and was quick to answer my endless amount of questions and in detail. I am hoping to take that leap of faith and partake in the course.

    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!

    I made an enquiry at the Tefl Institute for a refresher course, Tracy was super helpful in advising me the options and explaining to me which will work best. Thank you Tracy. Much appreciated.

    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.

    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.
