One of the best go for It!

9/10

I decided to complete my TEFL in Chiang Mai with Unitefl and I'm glad I did.
The staff were great. Knowledgeable, professional and friendly offering support from start to finish. They helped with any queries or concerns both before and after arriving in Thailand and once the training was complete.
The facilities in Chiang Mai are great central location, a.c. internet etc. All materials provided.
Accomodation was good and inexpensive.
The training was hands on and detailed really preparing you for teaching in schools. We learned different teaching styles, techniques to manage a classroom and work with various learning styles , they even covered Thai culture and language to prepare us for working in the school with the native teachers and educating us on traditions, differences etc.
Unitefl also made this experience fun with the way they taught us and with the additional trips offered. They allowed us to explore Thailand and bond with the other teachers and have a great time too!
Overall this company offers a fantastic package that reakky prepares you for working in schools and gives you the knowledge and skills you will need and use everyday whilst still bring a fun and enjoyable course where you can explore Thailand and make new friends for life.

How can this program be improved?

Maybe an extra few hours of practical classroom teaching (there is already some)

Excellent TEFL Course with Thai School Practicums

10/10

Wonderful experience graduating from UniTEFL's 4 week intensive. Best part were the teaching practicums (TPs) at many different Thai schools around Chiang Mai. Thai students were very easy to teach and a lot of fun. UniTEFL Staff very supportive in helping us grow into our role as teachers. Very nice school facilities located walking distance to the new Maya shopping center, with great food a coffee to keep us going! Thank you

Don't hesitate, you have found your course!

9/10

There I was...searching the internet for a TEFL course in Chiang Mai...too much choice...every company trying to show off...except UNITEFL Thailand. Nice, clear website with all necessary information you need to know about the different packages they offer. They respond to mails in a fast and efficient way, even during the weekend.
After all information, the choice was easy! I went for the total package (Premium): course, serviced room (close to the office), excursions during the weekends, job assistance (must have!!),... Real value for money!
The course itself fulfilled my high expectations. Next to the review of the English grammar, a lot of time is dedicated to the real teaching. They really show you how to teach and how to apply, using your own style. After every lesson (in total you teach in 7 different schools during that month), they give clear feedback how to improve. They really want you to do well, it is not about the money at UNITEFL, they are proud of what they do, they want to be proud of their students too and that shows!

At the end of the month you need to pass an exam on English grammar before you get your certificate. You need to study if you want to pass!

Being a non-native speaker, I am very glad that I did this course, I felt strong enough to start teaching!

Thanks to their job assistance, I have found a real good teaching job in Bangkok, where I am still working after several months.

More time for preparation of the lessons, it takes time if you have never been teaching before.

Excellent experience!

9/10

The UniTEFL course was a great life-changing experience. I was looking to do something different and to travel abroad. I fortunately came across this program and have absolutely no regrets doing it.

Having had no prior teaching experience, it can be a bit intimidating with the in-classroom practicums beginning the first week in, but I'm extremely grateful that they do it this way. You get to experience so much growth during the month and it's the perfect challenge. I love reflecting back on that first week and how scared I was, knowing how far I've come!

The only downside is that the one month flies by so quickly, that by the end, you'll be sad to see everyone go. I made some great friends and learned the joys (and challenges!) of teaching English in Thailand. I highly recommend the UniTEFL certificate program.

Great learning experience

9/10

In November 2015 I participated in the month long TEFL program at UniTEFL. The teachers, Pete and James, were extremely professional and had a genuine care for the people in the course. The course was constructed in a way that made learning fun and also allowed time to work with teachers directly for additional assistance. All in all I had a wonderful time at UniTEFL. The highlight was definitely the seven teaching pracs at a variety of Thai schools.

How can this program be improved?

I was really impressed with the program, so it is difficult to say. I guess the only comment I have is for an ebook to be available instead of all the paper handouts, especially when many people are continuing to travel after their course and would want to keep their luggage at a minimum.
