About Us - The Thailand TEFL Academy

Welcome to the Thailand TEFL Academy!

The Thailand TEFL Academy Koh Samui, Thailand

The Thailand TEFL Academy is a state-of-the-art English teacher training academy located on the gorgeous tropical island of Koh Samui in Thailand. Founded as a labor of love for the international teaching community, the Thailand TEFL Academy is unique in that we offer our students a truly global-based curriculum, training individuals like you for the exciting world of teaching abroad. 

Our world-class TEFL training facility is located at the ISS Study Centre on the grounds of the highly respected International School of Samui providing our students with an unmatched sense of trust, security and community. Founded in 2007, the International School of Samui follows the popular British Independent School Model supported by the University of Cambridge. The school’s student base ranges in ages from 2 to 16 years old, with over 250 pupils currently enrolled from over 35 different countries.


The Thailand TEFL Academy not only serves as a TEFL training facility but a full-time language school with Thai and English language courses taught daily in small group and 1-to-1 formats. TEFL teacher training in a private school environment provides an advantage to our graduates, as they get a feel for this kind of teaching environment, as well as in the public schools we visit for observed teaching practices. Our strategic alliance with the International School of Samui offers our TEFL students the valuable experience of teaching children and adults from not just Thailand, but all over the world.

At the Thailand TEFL Academy, we take immense pride in offering our students the very best training experience possible during each four week course. This includes the careful selection of our partner hotel for student accommodation needs as we want to ensure the utmost quality, safety and amenities for our students whilst here on beautiful Koh Samui. We are proud to partner with the luxurious Boonjumnong Modern Apartments – a four star rated resort complex located in the heart of Chaweng and minutes from our campus. Through our partnership, we are able to offer our students a 30-day stay at this beautiful resort at a severely discounted rate. Complimentary daily transportation services between the hotel and our main campus are included for all students (8:45 am and 2:45 pm). For more information about our choice hotel, please visit the Accommodation page of our website. 

At the Thailand TEFL Academy, we’ve worked hard to develop a well-balanced curriculum based on 120 hours of learning and a minimum of six hours of teaching practices. Here is a brief overview of what to expect from our course:
