Your Teaching Experience

You’ll be based in an English language school during your TEFL experience in Bangkok and you’ll enjoy weekends off to sightsee.

Most placements will involve teaching students with a range of ages and English ability from teens to mature learners, generally beginner to intermediate levels.

You can typically expect to teach up to 25 contact hours per week, plus some preparation time to lesson plan following the in-house curriculum.

Your goal as an English teacher on this internship will be focused on conversational English practice.

However, depending on demand you may also have the opportunity to teach English for hospitality or healthcare, business communications and public speaking classes.

Whilst there is a syllabus to follow, you’ll be able to ask advice from local teaching colleagues to assist with any help that you need.

Cultural Excursions

Wondering what you’re going to do with your precious free time? We’re glad you asked! We know your adventure bucket list is long, but make sure you tack these recommendations from past TEFL interns in Thailand towards the top!

City

Buzzing Bangkok is worth a deeper look. Forego Khao San chaos for a ride along the Khlong Saen Saep to the city’s older neighborhoods. It’s super scenic, too!

Food

Hit up the 7/11 for foodie fun. Banana marshmallows, strawberry milkshake potato chips, fried chicken skin, milk in a can. It’s fun. And definitely weird.

Activity

If you're teaching in the fall, you’ll love Loy Kratong, the “Festival of Lights.” Floating candles are sent down waterways to honor the river goddess.
