I chose to take a TEFL course on Samui, as the prospect of studying on a tropical island appealed to me, and it did not dissapoint! Samui is a fantastic island in the south of Thailand, and being able to relax on the beach (just a few minutes walk from the school!) after a hard day studying was brilliant. The school provided everything we needed to take the course - pens, pencils, white board pens etc as well as free wifi water and hot drinks. There is also printing facilities and so much arts and craft items to use for teaching aids. Chiara , the TEFL teacher, was superb. She made everyone comfortable and eased us into the course and before we knew it, the first week had passed - and i was amazed at how much material had been covered, and more importantly that material had been taken on board as well! Chiara is a very experienced language teacher, and included many techniques that have been tried and tested in the classroom. My coursemates on the course were also great, and we bonded well taking full advantage of being on a tropical island. We were given plenty of material, so when it came to our first teaching practice, we all felt well prepared to go and teach the kids in the school. We had the oppurtunity to teach in an international school, a government school as well as some adults who were learning english. This gave us a good overview of the different environments we could be teaching in, and the potential issues we could face. Throughout the course there was help provided in applying for jobs, as well as perfecting your CV. Overall i would reccomend this course, as Samui is a fun island to stay on for 4 weeks, and the quality of teaching and assistance offered is excellent.
