What is TEFL?
TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language
Why do I have to do the TEFL Certification course on-site?
Teaching English in a non-native speaking country requires skills and cultural awareness that cannot be acquired through correspondence courses.
Teaching English overseas is a unique opportunity to step into another world and become a part of it. As you mingle with the people and wander through the streets you’ll discover a world unknown to the package tourist and invisible to the independent traveller. This unique insight is reserved for those who take the time to get to know the land, to work with the community and to live with the people. It’s an experience that you’ll remember and cherish for the rest of your life.
It’s also a great way to fund your travels. You’ll earn as you go, so you won’t have to worry about running out of money or living on a shoestring! A TEFL course will give you the qualification you need to do this!
Please note: Schools in Thailand and China will not appoint any teacher without at least a 120 Hour TEFL Certificate! Degree or no degree! It is essential!
What is a TEFL course?
A TEFL course is a program designed to give you the skills and confidence you need to teach English as a foreign language.
What does the TEFL course offers me?
- To get the skills you need to earn up to US$1,500 a month!
- To enable you to live and work abroad for as long as you want.
- To give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in a foreign culture in a way that package tourists can only dream of!
- To give you the chance to make a positive impact on the lives of people around the world.
- To fuel your desire to teach and travel by showing you that all you need to teach abroad is a bit of enthusiasm and a TEFL qualification!
Why TEFL Certification?
Teaching students English in their native language differs completely from teaching English to children who have never heard or spoken the language! They do not understand you and you do not understand them! It is important to learn more about the Thai culture. That gives you an insight in their lives and to understand the culture! You need to understand “the Thai way of living“!
Furthermore is it important to get properly trained in classroom management! This is with out doubt the single most important aspect of teaching in Thailand! If you cannot control your class you are in for a journey to hell! This, you can only learn and be taught during a lengthy 10 hour practical training in a real in–classroom situation during your course period. There is no substitute for experience!
You will also be introduced to the intended curriculum that you will be teaching and assisted in drafting of properly structured lesson plans! Lesson plans are crucial as it will be the road map that you have to follow in teaching the expected curriculum! No matter how much experience you have in teaching, the reality of teaching in a Thai school is a daunting one and you need to be prepared!
Trust us when we say it is necessary to be certified!
Accommodation during the course is included. The rooms are located in the same building as the school, just a few minutes walk to central Patong. They have comfortable beds, desk, closet, individual air-condition, flat screen LED with cable-TV, free WiFi, large fridge, tiled bathroom with a warm water shower. All the comforts you need.

About I Teach TEFL
I Teach TEFL has initially been part of the Paradise TEFL group. We have however decided to sever ties and establish our own brand and identity.
The I Teach TEFL philosophy will be more directed at practical in-class teaching and a major emphasis will be placed on proper and thorough lesson planning and strict classroom management.
Although Grammar is the crux of English as a language, we will rather be focusing more on building a decent vocabulary on the important aspects of our target markets’ lives, to be able to construct phrases and build understandable sentence in order for them to be able to communicate in English. However the necessary amount of training will be allocated to grammar also.
The Directors of I Teach TEFL are also of the opinion that thorough understanding of the culture and customs of the target audience will be a major benefit to assist future TEFL teacher to understand their student better
I Teach TEFL have a partner program agreement with TEFL Boot Camp (2006). TEFL Boot Camp is a institutional member of IATEFL.
