What makes TEFL Chiang Mai different from other TEFL providers?
We keep our class sizes small for a very simple reason - to ensure you have the personal attention you need to be a successful EFL teacher. Our course is a Practical Approach, providing you with skills, guidance and confidence that you will actually use in your teaching job. We keep our overhead and course prices low and pass the savings on to you. Your teacher will do their best to give you a great experience and makes the course pertinent to your needs. We are not a non-profit but when you compare our prices to other TEFL providers you will probably wonder why their course fees are so high! TEFL Chiang Mai gives you lifetime job assistance. Most TEFL providers collect your course fee, give you the training and then you are on your own when it comes to finding a job. Our course provides you with 5 advanced certifications at no additional charge. No other TEFL provider can offer you these advanced certifications as part of their basic TEFL course. If you can even find these advanced courses being offered by another TEFL provider you will spend $1,000 USD or more extra to obtain them.
Do I really need a TEFL certificate to teach English abroad?
Although schools in some parts of the world may only require that you be a native English speaker,most reputable institutions prefer to hire teachers with some training. The experience that you will gain in your TEFL course, particularly in the practical teaching of local students, will be incredibly valuable and you will have the knowledge and experience required to step into the world of teaching.
