Review

The experience of the TEFL course has been extremely good for me. I have researched a lot of places prior to deciding on Text & Talk as they seemed to be the most welcoming place of the lot. My first expression was created when I came and met the people who were beyond nice to me and took extra effort to bond with me to make me feel welcome. I think this is something unique about Text & Talk as they make you feel welcome and valued more than other places out there. Despite my doubts at the beginning of the course, this turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life. Possibly one of the most positive decisions I have made for the betterment of my quality of life since arriving in Bangkok. I did not find the course content or the lesson plan creation to be as challenging as I have hoped . However, the practical aspect of the whole experience was quite challenging to me and through that, I was able to recognize my strengths and weaknesses accordingly. I was quite terrified in the aspect of actually teaching actual kids in an actual school in a faraway country. However, once I went through that experience, I was profoundly happy in knowing my ability to teach and make at least a small difference in the life of a child. I learned that I am able to overcome any obstacle that comes my way through good preparation and by adapting to the situation. For someone who has had very little teaching experience prior to this I have to say that I am very satisfied with the level of exposure provided by the TEFL course. The key to being successful was to prepare and over prepare. These were embedded into our minds by the Trainers and I am forever grateful for that. I am not only able to have faith in my teaching now I am also capable of constructing lesson plans that will be the foundation of any good teaching session in the future. The Trainers are both extremely professional yet very friendly at the same time. I have thrived under their guidance and have come to like teaching as a long-term career. They have provided fool proof ways to attempt teaching accordingly and I am extremely grateful for that. The overall experience has helped me in meeting different people from different backgrounds as well and I am quite thrilled by that experience . Apart from the teaching I have been able to blend in with a diverse group of people whom I have become quite close to through-out the sessions. Finally, I am very grateful for the opportunity offered by the Text & Talk TEFL Academy and I will not hesitate in recommending their TEFL Course to anyone and everyone on this path. Thank you!

Private Note to Provider (optional)
As I mentioned earlier Text & Talk TEFL Academy have made an excellent impression on me and has made a believer out of me. However, if I am required to provide constructive feedback, I would strongly suggest incorporating more practical session in to the whole process as it is through that we learn the most important aspects of the overall process. And one difficulty I found myself in through the teaching session was that the kids I was teaching to already knew the structure of the lesson I was about to teach and that disrupts the authenticity of my overall experience. Therefore, if you are able to please try to provide a wide range of classes and ages to teach to the best of your ability. And once again I am very grateful for the experience and guidance provided. Thank you.
