TEFL

I have been a teacher from last 8 years, and I thought I have the idea of how to teach. But ACT makes you much better teacher, a better teacher for your students.

The ACT was like a family, thank you Kuhu for being so patient with us and bearing us, and Pak for being the cutest person.. 😊

Thailand my second favourite place 👍 And the classmates I got was the best. Thank you everyone 😊

For the most part, a fun and challenging experience

Overall, this was a very good program. I really enjoyed how close my peers and I became over the three weeks. We all offered each other support and guidance to get through the program. I enjoyed the varied examples for the warmers and context settings. I liked the all of creative activities in the classroom! I feel like I was given a lot of useful tools and activities to use in my future classroom. The instructor's written feedback was very helpful. I do wish more time had been spent on classroom management techniques. I also felt like we were usually pressed for time to prep for lessons because we had spent so much time doing other things. While I could tell that our instructor was interested in teaching and has a lot of experience, I found that she relied heavily on verbal communication when assigning us homework/explaining lesson plan formatting. I would have preferred to also have it written down in its entirety (only parts were written). She could be very blunt and clearly show her frustration when a student was not understanding a concept. She could have explained it in a different way to get the message through. The teaching practicum was the most helpful part of the experience as we were able to put everything we learned into action. The schools were varied in their skill levels and class size. Because of the short time frame of the class, it was a bit of a "trial by fire" approach, but it really made me think on my feet and be creative, two things which are important to be able do as a teacher. I left the classrooms feeling very accomplished!
Overall, I would recommend this program. It is less expensive than some of the alternative programs and instills a solid foundation of knowledge and skills in the TEFL graduates.

Asian College of Teachers

I had so much fun when doing this course and would recommend it to anyone. It is really worth it even if you have a B.Ed Degree, because you learn how to make use of key word and body language while teaching.

I would also recommend this course for anyone else who never had any experience with teaching. The course gives a broad outline of how teaching needs to be when teaching English as a foreign language.

Thai salad with an amazing experience.

A warm experience with some people from different corner of the world, apparently with the same passion. Just contrast of various students teach you enough. Undoubtedly worth it.
The program subtely takes you to teaching world and the ways you can demonstrate a language to a person who has never heard of the language. It's the cheapest ride I could find, but definitely, if you want to get TEFL certified, it's worth it.
Speaking thai has been a personally a challenge, bit looking at the welcoming nature of Thai people, I don't think it will be hard to stay here for an extended period of time. I officially love Bangkok, Tefl and Asian college of Teachers.

How can this program be improved?
The duration should have been a little longer...or else, this program does what it promises.

TEFL COURSE

This was an exciting and scary experience all at once . Scary because all the material was new and there was a lot of new teaching concepts to learn and exciting because when you get the hang of it it's a wonderful feeling.
I would suggest that anyone who has the desire to teach in Asia as an english Teacher should consider the TEFL course through ACT ( Asian College of Teachers ) .
I would also say having in- class experience is a must because everything that is taught in the class will actually help you in the classroom with your lesson planning as well as how to conduct a lesson .

How can this program be improved?
I would suggest that the duration of the course gets extended . I feel the amount of time and the quantity of material are too much for the given time .

Introperspective in Bangkok

Hi all TEFL teachers
We arrived in Bankok to the warmth of the Thai people and culture. The course was intense and not as simple as anticipated. Come to Thailand with the right frame of mind that the course is intense . Many areas to cover. Amazing experiences in thai class training. Subject matter well presented and put across .. There were some really difficult areas in our studies. We had a brilliant lecturer JUNE ... 😃😃 friendly , warm , helpful ,patient. We had an amazing co ordinator in Pak.. always helpful in and out of class questions . Food , Travel at weekends .
Wow .. We learnt sooo much . In 3 weeks . Definetly a must do . It is amazing . The Thai people and culture are so warm and friendly..

How can this program be improved?
I believe a week longer would help.

Hai ,
This is Praveen Kumar from India and I am working as a Vice Principal in a School , I am working as a teacher for the past 15 years having a teaching degree i was always looking for an teaching Jobs abroad so after doing lot of reasearch i felt that the ACT is the right place where i can do my TEFL course in Bangkok it is the gat way for the getting an teaching job in abroad. I am now in bangkok and really after going through the regourous training program i have leaned lot of new techniquies in teaching and many new methods in teaching English and the practical experience which we got because of teaching practice in thailand school was really great.
ACT has given me an opportunity to meet the persons from different parts of the world as our trainee were from US, Uk, South Africa and Australia.
I never thought that learning can be so enjoyable .
Frankly speaking after the traning i feel now i am a complete teacher.
I would like to give credit my trainer June as well as coordinator Pak who were very help ful in all aspects .

How can this program be improved?
My only recommendation would be pleasre increase the duration of the course from 3 weeks to 1 month.

Summary Review

This was my first experience abroad. I believe that without the assistance from our co-coordinator, i would have certainly been lost in the system of things here. Having a teacher as passionate as June, without a doubt made the world of difference, she was always willing to go the extra mile, whether it was with regards to course material, or even helping me out when i left my passport in the taxi. I feel that even if i didn't use my TEFL certification after the course, that just having been apart of the experience would have been well worth every penny and every minute I've invested. The course has taught me so much more than just how to teach an EFL class, and i know for sure ill be using these skills for the rest of my life. I discovered i have a passion for teaching, and after every Thai class practice lesson, i genuinely just wanted to walk back in, despite the nerves before the lesson.

How can this program be improved?
I found all our information provided was thorough, however if anything, knowing where to get food that was much like home( South Africa) would have been awesome.

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.
