My name is Kaylin Jones. I am 27 years old and from South Africa.
I have been very fortunate to have visited Thailand on holiday at least four times, whereby I fell in love with the Thai people and culture and last year I decided to remain to teach. I worked with various NGO’s as a volunteer in the camps but felt I would like to formalize my skills and teach in a mainstream school.
I applied for and completed the Tefl course in April/May 2017. This program was a revelation for me. It is professional and practical in that I was given an opportunity to practice teaching in real time with real students and was critiqued positively, so that I could apply improvements where necessary.
Learning was a fun experience and I met many new friends of similar attitudes.
Thanks to Tefl, I now feel that I am a more than competent teacher, confident in my abilities to enrich the lives of my students and fulfilling my aspiration of giving back to the community I have adopted.
I would recommend this course to anyone who seriously wants to progress and teach in Thailand.
