Head to Hua Hin or Chiang Mai in Thailand and gain an internationally accredited 120 hour TESOL qualification which can be used to teach abroad. Want to live and teach in Thailand? Use your qualification to gain a job in a reputable school and experience life living the beautiful ‘Land of Smiles’.

You can gain an internationally accredited TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) in one of two beautiful locations: Hua Hin, a coastal resort based 2-3 hours from Bangkok, or in Chiang Mai, located in mountainous North of Thailand. Accredited by the Online TESOL and TEFL Standards Agency (OTTSA), the course can be used internationally to teach English to those who do not speak it as their first language. During the 120 hour course, you will get 2-3 days of real experience teaching at a non-profit local English camp.

The course runs every month of the year. Please note that Thai school holidays take place in April/May and October.

There are many courses out there. We believe this is the best in Thailand as it offers a high-quality TESOL course and has the best possible job prospects.  Having visited the providers ourselves we are able to reassure and inform potential applicants that the course would be right for them.

The TESOL course is enjoyable, sociable and exciting. Located in stunning locations with access to top quality facilities and shops, this is a fantastic way to start your Thailand adventure.

If you are looking to gain a job in Thailand at the end of the course, the placement team can organise this for you so that you can start working straight away. Degree holders can earn between 30,000 and 40,000 Thai Baht a month ($800-1200). Typical contracts are 4-5 months. All schools are reputable and can offer assistance, helping you to find accommodation on arrival. The school will provide you with a working visa and the team are on hand throughout your time teaching to offer support.

While working, you will get all your school holidays off, giving you plenty of time to travel and explore Thailand and surrounding countries. There are plenty of work and volunteer opportunities available for you to get involved in.

At the end of the first teaching contract, many teachers extend their time in Thailand, either staying at their school or moving to a new one. The team can help with this and will provide free lifetime placements in schools – with opportunities in other Asian countries.
