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.
