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 was called back by the lovely Elaine who made sure all my questions were answered and kept me in the loop about special offers available on courses that she thought would suit me! She gave me advice on what other services are available via the TEFL Institute such as the jobs board and she completely shared in my excitement about getting going! I'm looking forward to getting started, thanks Elaine ✨

    I really enjoyed the 10 hour online teaching course with Michelle. She has a great grasp of grammar, excellent teaching knowledge and a lively and engaging teaching style. She also is very encouraging and supportive. Thanks so much Michelle for everything. Tim.

    I participated in the 10 hour virtual teaching course with Michelle Benson. Michelle is knowledgeable, experienced, and patient, and she created a supportive and productive environment. The course zipped along at a jaunty pace, and was an excellent introduction to the practicalities of teaching.

    I just finished the 10 hour Virtual TEFL course under Michelle Benson's expert tutoring. She's a fun and purely vocational teacher. She makes it rather easygoing.I had read the manual before hand but I believe it's not really necessary to do so nor to open it whilst following the course. Michelle shares the info on her screen.As a teacher myself, I expected a much more complex and demanding approach so if you're completely new to the subject, it's exactly what you need. It's just the right place to lose your fear and feel comfortable in front of others.I would have appreciated a longer course to be able to go into more detail and "polish" certain aspects but, all in all, it gives you an idea of what is expected from you as a TEFL teacher.Thanks a mil. Michelle.

    I did the 10h Virtual TEFL course and I had a great time. I was quite nervous since I am not the most comfortable talking to new people, but the tutor, Michelle Benson, was so friendly and so were the other students. The class was engaging, some points that were taught in the 180h course where I was confused were so simply explained (how to distinguish the tenses for example). The atmosphere was great, laughs here and there. The presentation wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, I thought I'd be more nervous, but all of the encouragement from everyone towards each other was great. Very enjoyable experience. Would definitely recommend. Now I'm not as daunted by zoom classes lol. God bless :)

    I struggled a bit to understand how everything works in the beginning but now that I am going, it is a positive experience.
