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.
Certificate despite discussing in a phone call with Andrew that the fee to leave media kids early and certificate fee being wiped due to the multiple issues I had with media kids and my placement. Obviously in hindsight i should have asked for conformation in writing as this was then not honoured and sadly Andrew passed away. I am glad I had the chance to meet and train with Andrew and still recommend Unitefl as I believe they are one of the best here. It is just unfortunate that I don't have my certificate to show that I completed and paid for training which has been an issue for some employers.
