Great experience

If you want face to face hands on TEFL training, ACT offers the best deal. After all my research with different companies, ACT offered the best price for hands on training. Many other companies just threw you into an online program. I had a blast meeting everyone from all over the world. I really got to connect with my fellow students over the course of 3 weeks. The instruction from June was great. She is a fantastic teacher. The support from both June and Pak was great too. I was always able to reach them and sometimes even had questions after hours when class was already over. The course load was not difficult. We did have to prep sometimes for peer teach and demo lessons but the time you spent doing that outside of class was up to you. We were given time in class to work on most things as well . Regarding job assistance, Pak was able to find me two jobs in Bangkok, but since I really wanted to get a job outside Bangkok, she gave me a few contacts to aid me in that as well. i wish I possibly could have had more job opportunities offered through ACT but I just worked very hard on my own after hours during week 3 of the course utilizing different job boards and contacting many schools and agencies on my own. Overall the course was great. I feel very prepared to jump in and be a teacher after all the tools and skills ACT has taught me. The only thing we wish we knew ahead of time was that there are ways to teach without a college degree in Thailand (under an education visa) so I wish this was made clear to me because then I may have had a few people join the course with me. Thanks for an awesome time!

How can this program be improved?
More information provided prior would have been helpful. notifying me about a discount at the hotel for my partner and i would have probably made me decide to stay at the hotel versus finding other accommodation and had i also had known college degrees were not required, i would have had some other people join me

Tefl course

The TEFL course was an awesome experience . I'm so glad i enrolled for the course . The in class TEFL course is a must . The exposure that you get with doing Tefl in class is huge . Everything you learn in class you use as a teacher . I would say the TEFL course is a must if you want to teach in thailand . The teaching techniques you learn helps you with preparation in class . Overall great support system and help provided .

How can this program be improved?
I think the course should be a bit longer as the amount of information that are discussed in the class are alot and the time period for everything is only 3 weeks .

Happy

I was into teaching Primary till A levels in a renowned school in Mumbai but here teaching trainees of an institute plus children of primary it was a difficult task because to teach English language to those who don't know. But, being a teacher still it took me some time to understand their own language and their worries in understanding English and I introduced voice modulation techniques to get their sound of L, R , V and Ch right. In a short time too if my learners are able to learn 5 words correctly I have achieved my goal as a teacher and truly happy too to know my learners can sustain the given knowledge for long time.

How can this program be improved?
If the training is in Bangkok I would prefer Ms. Pak as my trainer because she is a local and knows the requirements, wants and needs of her people.

Great course

The course is very compact. You must do all technical materials on your own. This course is mainly focused on class experience and lessons for teaching. It was great meeting new people and getting classroom experience. The instructor was awesome and helped a lot to get us ready for the Thai culture. I made some good friends who I hope to keep in touch with. I was able to apply and get a few job offers.

How can this program be improved?
More instruction, some things were very vague. More book instruction.

Its here now!

I am very glad to be a part of the ACT family . Its has been an amazing experience learning all the techniques and methods of teaching and applying them in real life. Being exposed to colleagues from various parts of the world was a great experience and i learnt alot from my mentor and peers. I would definitely recommend people to get their license to teach if they want to stand out and make a difference in not only their’s but also the world. My experience here was fruitful and i definitely learnt more about myself and I feel like i am ready to go out there and make a difference! Thanks!

How can this program be improved?
I think more lesson plans to work on individually and present them would boost our conditioning but nevertheless peer teaching did help.

Amazing experience that will be an amazing aid.

The course is intense, but if you throw yourself all into it. trust me, you could learn a lot from the Trainer. I like our Trainer- Kuhu. Because she helped me a lot and she made the lesson easy to understand and use. Pak also very helpful. no matter what you need or information you want to know like job hunting. she always be there for you. she helped me for job searching and taught me how to make introduction video. Kuhu and Pak. they are amazing. I made many friends here. everyone is so nice and supportive. I have learned many like how to do the lesson plan. how to manage the classroom. and communication with each other.

One of the best experiences I have ever had. I came from the other side of the world, Venezuela, and heard about this course from a friend. I was as nervous as I could be, but as soon as I started the course, I felt completely overwhelmed with how nice and helpful everybody has been. It’s an intensive three week course that makes you wish it was longer. I feel very prepared and even managed to find a job with the help of the teachers, before even finishing the course! Can’t recommend enough!

How can this program be improved?
Not sure, possibly a little more grammar and less warmers for the first week. Can't really say much, I am absolutely happy with the results.

Good experience abroad

Our teacher was very friendly and always ready to help. It was a great experience doing in class training, meeting and teaching Thai students of different levels of English. Learning how to adapt your teaching for the level of english that students of a foreign language can produce.
Support for job placement was very little and could not get any clear answers from the program manager was but she seemed to become a bit more friendly near to the end of the course and hope it will improve and do what is promised in the package that is advertised and sold to clients.

How can this program be improved?
Assist all people joi ing the course for placement equally and not focus on a select few.

I hope this course will bring lots of work opportunities for me and that I am able to make a success of this journey. I would recommend it to more people. Hopefully I get a job after this.

Review for act course

My experience with this school was great. They assisted me through everything. Kuhu, our trainer, is very patient and incredibly helpful. Pak has gone above and beyond to help me get a job. I am very thankful for this company in helping me pursue a dream that I once thought was unachievable! The course was fun but also intense. We were able to have teaching practice with all ages which was so great. This helped me personally so much in deciding what age group I wanted to teach.

How can this program be improved?
There was a bit of miscommunication sometimes between the trainers and students. Also, more teaching practice would have been nice but we only have 3 weeks so that was understandable.

I had a good time. Felt confused when Pak was contradicting what Kuhu taught us in class. But overall it was a good course. The staff and hotel was great. The email communication was very well done. Will recommend this course to anyone who wants to teach in Thailand. Linda Hannekom is the best agent and will recommend her to anyone. The communication, response, problems solving is of the best. This was the best decision we could have made. We love the country and their people.

How can this program be improved?
Better planning so that students know from the first day what will happen in the last week.

In class

A lot of leadership activities happened with a lot of people wanting to do their own thing in the third week you could sense some tension otherwise it was a great experience.i woul recommend to people. I would like to do it again but luckily I got me certificate the Thai people are very friend and lovely towards other people I am really glad I made my decision in coming to Thailand to start my own thing.

How can this program be improved?
Maybe just divide the teaching in the three weeks so it isn't all in one to absorb

Amazing experience

I've always wanted to travel and teach abroad. When I came across this program, I didn't think twice in signing up. I was glad I did. I met a lot of new friends from all over the world and I definitely learned a lot about teaching English abroad. With a certificate like this, it is my passport to teach abroad! I am grateful to my trainer Kuhu who really took the time and effort to help me and others understand the topic we're discussing or counseling us whenever our personal problems clash with the course. All I can say is this is the place to go to if your dream is to travel and teach. You can make it happen!

How can this program be improved?
Maybe the location could be moved to a more central location.

TEFL IN THAILAND

The course has been a life changing experience. The course offers a variety of techniques and tools and ideas for further teaching practice. I chose to do the course in Thailand mainly because it offers a first hand teaching in a real classroom as well as adult teaching as practices. I for one have never taught a class before and never been able to speak in front of people but this course has definitely increased my confidence level and our trainer June has been instrumental for my personal growth too. I have much to thank the TEFL course for such an opportunity as it has broadened my views towards teaching. Thank you ACT!!
