There is also have the opportunity to watch your TEFL trainer in action as well as experience what it is like to be a student, as you learn an unknown foreign language.

About Thailand

Whether it is the sun-kissed beaches and tropical islands, friendly people, delicious food, or just an adventure a world away from here, Thailand offers all this to you in abundance. It is a country of geographical diversity and one of the most popular destinations for our Global English gap year students. But it is also an excellent first stop for the more adventurous novice teacher looking for teaching practice before they begin their career. So if you are interesting in working in Thailand, read on...

About Phuket

Our partner TEFL school is located on the island of Phuket in Patong Beach.  Here you’ll find rainforests teeming with wildlife, edged by breathtakingly white sandy beaches. With over 3 million visitors annually it is Thailand's largest island. Located in the Andaman Sea off Thailand's west coast, Phuket, or the 'Pearl of the South' as it has become known, is connected to the mainland by the Sarasin Bridge. It also has its own airport, around an hour's flight from Bangkok. As a location it is incredibly diverse, with rocky and sandy beaches, tall cliffs, forests, waterfalls and temples. And there is plenty to do on the island, whatever your budget.

Teaching here

Teaching work is generally plentiful, although competition in the main cities can be tougher, but the students are relaxed and friendly and the English language is in great demand as tourism and international business booms. However, very few schools advertise outside of the country, primarily for reasons of cost.

Generally teaching position will have to be arranged from within Thailand. So getting your Teaching Practice in Thailand here will really help you in your search for work. If you have ever visited the main cities you will probably have met many English speakers passing through. Indeed, you will find that many of your colleagues may be travellers who are simply looking to finance their voyage through the country, rather than career teachers.

Accommodation is not usually offered with most positions, but it is generally very cheap. Indeed the cost of living in Thailand is very low and it is generally possible to exist quite comfortably on part time hours, although full teaching positions are available. So with a GE course and your teaching practice, you will stand a better chance of finding work successfully.

Prospects are also good for the self-employed freelancer but only when you have been in one place for a while and have established yourself. You will need to get a teaching license, but our partner TEFL school can help you with this and provide you with all the relevant information. Career assistance includes advice on current positions available in Thailand, where to look for them, how to prepare a CV, and how to apply.  A word of caution - a degree is required to obtain a Ministry of Education Teacher Licence in Phuket Province and Bangkok.

But don't just plan to teach - there is so much more to do! You’ll be teaching only two minutes walk from the beach, so you can relax, enjoy the nightlife, or use Patong Beach as a base for more adventure.

Student Comments

Hello!
 
Sorry it took me so long to reply but I just made it home.  After my teaching practice I came home for 2 days and left on a road trip to Spain, quite a nice break!  Haven't done much work, but I'll catch up soon. Anyway just wanted to tell you and prospective students about my experience in Thailand and you're free to post it on the website or share it with anyone who's curious about the program.
 
I can't begin to tell you how pleased I was with this experience.  The school was located in the center of everything so it was easy to find restaurants and shops to spend my free time.  The teachers were very well prepared and qualified, so helpful and very attentive to everyone's needs.  I was a bit scared at first, I have to say, to go to a place like Thailand all by myself and people thought me crazy for taking an English class there.  They too were a bit confused as why an American living in Italy would end up in Asia.  But besides being extremely economical for people on a budget, and who isn't these days, the people I met were so inviting and reassuring, I knew right away that the hardest part would be leaving.  As I was on a different track, my main activity there was to teach 2 students while being observed by our instructor and to observe other teachers giving lessons.  And the teaching started on the first day, that gave me a bit of a rush to say the least!  Our instructor invited me to watch his classes on methodology and any other class I had time to participate in.  So I did.  And it was such an eye opener.  It can be hard at times, learning from a computer and having to picture everything in your head.  And there it was, everything that I had learned and more, coming to life, with real students and real problems and an infinite number of possibilities.  I got to watch different teachers applying the school's method and using a bit of their own as well.  Most of them were graduates of Tefl Plus, and they gave a good insight for my peers who were staying in Thailand after finishing their term.  I was very tempted as well!  At the end of the course, my instructor called me his 'star pupil', for he was very impressed with my progress.  How rewarding!
 
The hotel was also a plus.  The rooms were just perfect, spacious, clean, with a table and chair to study.  The staff is like a big family and if one's in need of company, the pool is just perfect for afternoon hang outs.  It functions mainly for the school students and alumni who apparently just won't leave for good or keep going back, so we had the place to ourselves.  Bin, the hotel manager made sure to teach us a new word in Thai every day.  One of us got sick one night and she took him to the hospital and stayed with him till 4am; just precious. The driver is available to take you and pick you up from school whenever you need to and he can drop you off if you want to go somewhere else.  This way you're never late and you don't have to worry about finding your way around.  Very convenient. And for only £10 a day!
 
Anyway, I could just go on and on about my time there and the people I met and the adventures outside the classroom, such as going out for lunch with my peers, venturing into a real Thai restaurant, ordering in Thai with no translation and ending up with a chicken foot in our soup.  But this would turn into a book:-)  What an unforgettable experience.  I wish everyone had the opportunity to go and see it for themselves. 

Send my regards to our friends in Patong!
