I had been in contact with several TEFL course providers in Thailand, and what stood out about SLS was the personal interest which Paul showed in his messages. At the school, that personal touch was evidenced by the entire staff.
The instruction was good, and delivered by a very experienced TEFL teacher, the student teaching was a great experience, but what stands out to me about SLS is the family feel.
Paul keeps not just my experience but my preferences in mind as he helps me with a job search. When I tested positive for Omicron and had to spend 4 days in my apartment, the staff went above and beyond. Chompoo went out to get me medicine and limes for hot citrus water. Paul and Mam checked on me. Cillian accommodated having me in the classroom virtually.
There are a lot of programs out there, but I can't imagine that any are a better experience.
