About Program

Fast-track your way to Thailand with our start-to-finish teaching program that takes you from TEFL stress to teaching success.

Enjoy the help and support of our expert team as we guide you through the entire process – from securing a job to settling into your new city.

One of the hardest parts of moving abroad is setting up from scratch. We help you tackle this with a series of pre-departure calls with the people you’ll travel with. Think of it like a ready-made friendship group.

Once you’re there, you’ll join an action-packed 3-day training camp where you’ll brush up on your teaching skills and quash those last-minute nerves.

Then, the real adventure begins. You’ll travel to your school to meet your colleagues and students and start what you came for: teaching.

Throughout all this, a team will be on hand to offer any help you need – whether that’s translation or travel-related, or something else.

Great first experience

I never taught before so I was a little bit worried when starting this program but the agency had many lessons plans available to draw inspiration from and the school was very helpful and patient. It was a school on the countryside so the English level was very low and many students weren't interesting in learning English. I told the school my concerns and they suggested playing esl games instead of just teaching. In hindsight I'm not sure if all the students were able to improve their English but the students who worked hard came to me on their own volition to ask questions and advice with projects and competitions. I was able to really have fun with the students and bond with them and I miss them very much, even outside of the classroom and played beachvolleyball with a group of students regularly. There weren't many restaurants or bars in my village so I had to drive to the next city (30 min) but I was able to enjoy the slow life and travel frequently all over Thailand and it is truly a breathtakingly beautiful country. It was an unforgettable experience and I'm really proud and happy that I did this.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
I saw roadworkers working in slippers. This really opened my eyes and showed the differences between my culture and Thai culture as this would be absolutely impossible in my homecountry. Other 'surprising' things are just the views and all the Buddhas, you'd be driving on the highway and all of a sudden there would be a giant golden buddha the size of a 30 story building at the side of the mountain looking over the city. Thailand's nature, mountains in the North and beaches in the south, are also very beautiful. I should mention there is a huge difference between living in a city and living on the countryside. The countryside is a slow life with a limited social scene but the cities are bustling. I had the fortune of living in the countryside 30 minutes away from a provincial city and was able to rent a car from a teacher at my school so I was able to combine both which I really enjoyed, but this is definitely something to consider before going as the other foreign teacher liked to go clubbing every week and didn't have a Thai drivers license so he was annoyed that he had to make arrangements every time. (I didn't mind, I found Thailand had so much more to offed.)
Pros
  • Beautiful views and travel opportunities
  • Amazing, friendly people and students who will adore you
  • Chance to de-stress and live a carefree life
Cons
  • Very very very very hot weather
  • Real Thai food is nothing like westernised Thai food and was very spicy, non spicy food choices are very limited and I ended up eating the same dishes often or just cooking at home in my improvised, tiny kitchen (not a problem if you live in the city)
  • No public transport in the countryside (one bus a day to the city)

Program rating

My experience in China has been wonderful thanks to the teaching program. They truly make life easy from the visa process and the useful tips they provide to get through life in a new country. Any questions you may have will be answered so that you feel comfortable and ready when you reach your country of choice. It is my first time in China and I am so grateful to have a team behind me that makes my life easier. All I have to focus on is preparing my lessons and getting to school on time. I am grateful for the opportunity.

Outstanding support by the agency

I had a wonderful time in Thailand. I got to know my Thai colleagues and the culture well. I am so grateful to have had the experience of working and living abroad, and I couldn't have done it without the help of Impact Teaching. Arnold provided great assistance before going to Thailand. He was very considerate about my request to work in a primary school, and he continued to help and support throughout my stay in Thailand. I highly recommend using Impact Teaching's service if you are looking to work in abroad.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
I ate a range of exotic fruits like mangosteen, rambutans, Thai mango, and dragon fruits to name a few.
Pros
  • Great support
  • Low fee
  • Considerate about your choice of placement

Wonderful experience

It was a wonderful experience, and I'd love to recommend this program to all my friends and everyone who wants to have an unforgotable experience in another country! I participanted the program in 2020, during the program, I received 24/7 support before and after I entered into Thilland. They are so professional that can help you solve all kinds of problems no matter when and where you contact them. Thanks a lot for all your effort! I also met a lot of friends during my teaching in Thilland, looking forward to meeting you guys again!

Very supportive

Covid meant it took me a lot longer to teach abroad than originally planned, and I ended up in an entirely different location. However, all through this, I felt completely supported by Impact Teaching! I was kept up to date with any problems that arose and the potential options available to me, until I eventually ended up teaching in Thailand. Even since arriving here, Impact Teaching has continued to support me with any problems that I have. Also, the cost of enrolling with Impact Teaching is a lot cheaper than other companies that I looked at previously. This is really a company that cares about helping people get abroad to teach. Would absolutely recommend to anyone wanting to teach abroad!

FANTASTIC experience with Impact Teaching, Thailand!

Impact Teaching really is a great company and I highly recommend using them! They provided help and assistance before and during my time in Thailand with a personal touch, this is very important when embarking on such a change in your life. Arnold is a great guy who is always there to offer support, as well as being genuinely nice and always up to hear how I am getting on. I know foreign teachers at my school who have used other companies to get to Thailand, who feel like they are treated as a number rather than a person, this will not happen with Impact Teaching. Also, these teachers have often paid a lot of money, whereas I found the cost of Impact Teaching very reasonable. The process of getting to Thailand was smooth and I love it here, there has been support and help all along the way. Now, I am settled at my school and in my town, it's awesome. Come to Thailand and let Impact Teaching help you get there!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take everything in your stride and go with the flow, put 110% into everything and do it with a smile!
