I became a Certified EFL Teacher from ACT TEFL - Bangkok. This program actually gave an in-depth knowledge of the difference between an Online course and an In-Class course. And how much more valuable is an In-class Course. I was fortunate and wise enough to take the in-class Course program.
It is imperative that you have a live classroom training session if you want to know challenges of being an EFL Teacher. ACT effectively aided the learning procedure. Hardly any TEFL Institute offers accommodation for an international in-class course and ACT provided a first class accommodation in Bangkok (Breakfast Included - Yummy american breakfast) for the duration of course. The hotel Staff were wonderful and tolerant too.
For any Course/Subject the right Trainer/Teacher is the key aspect for the success of the Trainee/Student. I have to admit that amongst all my other certification this course is the winner - Hands Down. My coach Ms. June is the best Teacher to teach others to be a Teacher and i have never seen such a skilled, humble and close to perfect coach in my entire life. JUNE YOU ROCK!!!!!!! She personally analyses the need of every student and customizes her training routine keeping everyone at the same pace - Its remarkable to see how she pulls it off effectively. June also taught me the importance of patience that is a key essence for this profession. She has the heart of gold and rock solid will power. ACT i personally thank you for giving our batch your best asset TEACHER JUNE, once again she Rocks!!!
And Pak, how can i miss her out. I ran in to a small visa trouble and she went out of her to help me get settled. I owe it to her big time for the completion of my Program. She is another Jewel that ACT has, A perfect Example of a multi-talented Program Manager. Thank you Pak for everything.
ACT certified Teachers have a high demand here in Bangkok and i experience that on a first hand basis. So getting a certificate from Asian College of Teachers will just make your resume stronger, twice as much (Believe it).
I hope every individual keen in teaching in thailand should take a look at ACT.
Cheers team ACT, you are unbeatable.
