First and foremost, it's our goal to ensure you have the best experience possible during your time at the Thailand TEFL Academy. We definitely take time to have fun throughout the course - after all, shouldn't teaching and learning be fun? It's also our goal to educate our students to the best of their abilities so they leave our TEFL family with the satisfaction that they just received the best TEFL training experience possible. When students leave our campus, it's our goal for them to be extremely confident in their abilities to not only teach children, but adults alike.
The syllabus consists of specific topics covered throughout your training at the Thailand TEFL Academy (see below), a course in Thai cultural awareness, one written assignment, 10 peer observations, multiple assessments given to gauge areas each student should focus on prior to our final exam, career development and resume writing, and the six+ guaranteed hours of teaching practices.
The Thailand TEFL Academy’s Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language to speakers of other languages (TEFL certification) is awarded to candidates who have completed the course and who have met all the criteria for all written and practical assignments. Final grades are determined by a multi-tiered approach based on the student’s overall final exam as well as observed teaching practices, assignments, and other weighted classroom related activities.
