About

Our 4-week, 140-hour intensive TEFL / TESOL course covers every aspect of EFL teaching, with a strong emphasis on practical training. All theory is learnt face-to-face, meaning that you have a tutor on hand to answer any questions and assist with lesson planning. By the end of the course, you'll be confident to teach in the real world, from lesson planning to handling a class of boisterous children. Other aspects covered include understanding how to teach grammar, how to grab and hold your students' attention, and delivering fun, interactive, yet meaningful classes, appropriate to the students' ages and abilities.
The course covers English for special purposes (such as for tourism), and the practical training will be done in a real school environment, with various age groups.
We keep our class sizes small to ensure you receive personal attention during the course.
We also offer assistance with your CV and job applications, and cover Thai culture in the course.

Samui TEFL course

This course, is intense, but amazing. You will learn more that you could ever expect in 1 month. This is not a holiday, there's no time for beaching on a daily basis and going out to party, you'll just regret it the next day and be sorry that you didn't plan that lesson well enough! At times it will feel like your brain is literally going to pop! In the end, it is all worth it, putting your knowledge that these lovely people have passed down to you, to create a fun and safe learning environment for your very own group of students.
You will learn everything you need to know about teaching learners in Thailand, and if you're going somewhere else, they'll help you with that too (even giving you direction and contacts to find a job inside and outside of Thailand).
In this course, you will actually get to spend time with children giving you and them the opportunity to put into practice what you have been taught.
You will make friends from all different walks of life, doing the same course, for different reasons. They are your rock for the month that you will be on this course, so keep in contact once it is over, they will be able to give you advise and information on their travels and experiences, and also a place where you can share yours.
Keep an open mind at all times and always expect the unexpected!

I highly recommend this course, it will get you places, not just in Thailand, but all over the world!

What would you improve about this program?
I don't think i would change anything about the course. I think I would personally just liked to have had a degree as it is a whole lot easier to find a job with a degree! So I would definitely recommend doing this course if you have a degree! Although it is not impossible with no degree so do not let that discourage you, I did it without one.

Samui TEFL- a great intro to ESL!

In January 2016 I came to Koh Samui, Thailand to do a TEFL course- something I imagined would be fun, easy and not too time consuming. It certainly is fun but this course really is "intensive", it is not just a morning of class and the rest of the day day lazing on the beach. It is challenging, but also very rewarding.
From week one you will be spending time in the classroom, getting great practical teaching experience along side the theory that the (very) capable instructor gives over the duration of the course.
Because of all the time I spent in front of a class I feel like I graduated more ready to take on a class of my own with confidence, and the experience of teaching such enthusiastic students that were so eager to learn really made me keen to keep on teaching English as a second language- which I will be doing, as through Samui TEFL I have had a job offer. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to become an ESL teacher and work in Thailand.

What would you improve about this program?
I don't think I'd change anything- but I would encourage people to foster friendships with their course-mates, it really does enrich the experience!

highly recommended!

After a few months of research, my boyfriend and I decided to enroll in the Samui TEFL 4-week 120-hour intensive course. The decision quickly became a no brainer - prime location, comparatively low cost, quick and detailed responses to any emails we sent in the months preceding our arrival (and there were a lot - thanks Rosanne!), and assistance with anything from transport to housing on arrival.

The course is not difficult, but it's definitely not easy. You can get as much or as little out of it as you wish, but know that the amount of time, effort, and energy put in (both in and out of the classroom) is reflected not only in your grades/feedback, but in your job placement as you complete the course.

The teacher practices are probably the most useful part of the course, as they are the most hands on and an excellent opportunity to gain the confidence and experience needed to step into the world of teaching English as a second language.

Kathryn is lovely - absolutely wonderful. She teaches you what you need to know and provides you with the techniques and experiences that let you sore from TEFL student to confident ESL teacher, ready to take on any teaching position, if you so choose. Thanks to Kathryn's encouragement and eagerness to help her students, my boyfriend and I were set up with (amazing) teaching positions before the course was even over.

Moral of the story, Samui TEFL is the way to go!

Had a great time on this course and learned a lot! Kathryn and Rosanne are fantastic- they help you get on your feet in Thailand. They both provide great support, and Kathryn taught us way more than we thought we could learn in a 4 week period.

The hands on experience with the schools really prepare you for the real thing, and the support doesn't end once you graduate. Kathryn keeps In touch, checks how we're doing and always offers guidance and any additional support we may need.
I'd highly recommend the course. It's more than just a classroom!

An excellent TEFL course with high job opportunities

There was so much to learn during my four weeks at Samui TEFL but I believe that the intense training prepares you well for teaching in a Thai school. Sometimes I was planning for two or three lessons as well as revising for tests and job hunting near the end. Organisational skills are very important and the sooner a task is finished the sooner you can move on to the next one.

I taught 8 hour lessons with a partner in a nursery, primary, and adults in an international school. The way a nursery or primary lesson is taught is very different to how adults are taught and this knowledge is very useful in helping you decide which age you would like to teach.

The time during the course went very quickly and before I knew it it was the end of the course. Kathryn is an excellent and very helpful teacher, she will explain things in different ways and many times if needed to ensure that the students understand the concept or topic.

It would have been great to have more teaching experience at a secondary school and at a resort too, however understandably 4 weeks is not a very long time to cover all age groups.

There are laptops and printers on site, however it would be very useful to bring your own, as if you need to do lesson plans in the evening the centre will not be open.

Kathryn and Rosanne also have very good relationships with schools all over Thailand so the chances of you finding a job is very high if you are willing to put in the effort and do well in the practicals and theory side of the course.

Koh Samui is an excellent place to do your course as you are just minutes away from the amazing beaches and there are lots to see and do! It also gives you the opportunity to meet amazing people from all over the world!

Samui TEFL - A fantastic experience and one I will never forget!!!

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to become an English teacher in Southeast Asia. From the moment I got in touch with Rosanne, her response was almost immediate. She answered all my questions and provided me with all the information I needed. The school will put everything in place for you before you even arrive on the island to make your transition as smooth as possible.

The course itself is brilliantly run and it will give you all the skills you need to be a successful teacher. Katherine’s experience really shows and her methods of teaching are excellent. You will be provided with all the tools you need to create fun and exciting lessons for all age groups. The practical experience you will gain from doing this course will benefit you hugely in the long run.

I would recommend to anyone doing the course to bring a laptop as it will make life so much easier when it comes to lesson planning, and you will more than likely need one when you start working.

I met some fantastic people on the course who I am now working with in Bangkok and this is all thanks to Samui TEFL! I would like to say a big thank you to Katherine and Rosanne for making the whole experience so enjoyable and worthwhile

Simply the best!

Choosing to do your TEFL course with Samui TEFL will be one of the best decisions of your life. From the time you send your first email, to graduation and even after that, Rosanne and Kathryn are there to help you.

Rosanne does a great job of providing you with all the necessary information before arriving on Koh Samui and even helps with booking accommodation, as well as transport once you arrive. If you have any questions regarding the course or the island, don't hesitate to ask her. She also helps you with your job search and is a good resource for any travel related Thailand questions you may have.

The course itself can be a bit intense at times, especially during the first week. However, it is very well organized and you are known what's expected of you from the start. The first lesson plan may seem stressful, but I promise it gets better. You'll have help from your classmates too, as the teaching practices are done in pairs. The more creative you get, the funner your lessons will be. The Thai children absolutely love it when you bring new activities to the classroom, so don't be afraid to create something new.

Kathryn, the trainer, is extremely knowledgeable and fun! She wants you to understand the material and she will do whatever it takes to make sure you do. Grammar is definitely not my strong suit and we reviewed it many times before it started to sink in. She's also super helpful when it comes to lesson planning, and a great motivator before all of your teacher practices.

Choeng Mon is a perfect location for the course. Many restaurants and shops are only a short walk away from the school. It's quiet and relaxing during the day with just the right amount of night life at night. If it's not crazy enough for you, Chaweng is only a cheap songthaew away.

I would highly recommend this course to any individual that is looking to teach English as a foreign language. I promise you won't be disappointed!

February 2015 Course - AWESOME!

From the moment you show an interest in the course Rosanne is there to help you through every step, including finding accommodation and answering those random questions.
The island is just beautiful and a fantastic location for the course (far better than an online course).
The course itself is fantastically run, Kathryn, the teacher is extremely knowledgeable and will not continue onto the next area of study unless the whole class has understood fully. It covers everything you could need to know to get started as a successful TEFL teacher, all you have to do is take the advice on board. The practicals were held at a local primary school where the children just loved having their English lessons taught by the TEFLers. You also have a chance to teach some adults incase that's the area you wish to go in to. You don't just get thrown into teaching alone either which I found very reassuring. After each practical you get written feedback which is in-depth and extremely helpful.

The course really is wonderful! If you're even considering it, just go for it!

What would you improve about this program?
I couldn't think of any improvements. It was fantastic the way it was.

Do it!

I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to do a TEFL course in South East Asia. Koh Samui is a very nice island and the school is located in the rather quiet area Choeng Mon. This definintely benefits to not partying too much and hence neglecting the course ;) Kathryn is an excellent teacher and the years and years of experience definitely contribute to the high level of teaching in the course. Rosanne is extremely dedicated and helps with the job hunt, paper work, lesson planning and much more. Both of them work great as a team. The school facilities are perfect, including a students lounge, classroom and a pool. The course is a lot of work, but it definitely pays off, as it prepares sou for the world of teaching.
A big thank you to Rosanne and Kathryn for making the stay on Koh Samui so pleasant and enjoyable!

Samui TEFL April 2014 Course

I had just moved to Thailand from the U.S and was looking to obtain a teaching position on the island. Since Samui TEFL was recommended by a reliable source who teaches here on Koh Samui, I felt more than comfortable trusting the recommendation. My confidence was further solidified once I met Kathryn, the course instructor, and Rosanne, her business partner. I was impressed by both their presence and their professionalism.

The course is four weeks long with classes held Monday through Friday from 9 am to around 3 pm. It's run out of a home in Choeng Mon from a small intimate (air-conditioned!) classroom downstairs. There's a comfortable sala to relax in during break times, a pool right out back and a kitchen for student use. It's best to bring your own computer but the course does provide computers and printers in the sala area. Accommodations with reasonable prices are available right next door.

The days were filled with lessons on grammar, teaching tips, Thai culture, demo lessons, and lesson planning for teaching practicums (done outside the course at local schools). Although you may find yourself quite busy with coursework, you can still find time to enjoy the beach and local attractions. Make sure you make an effort to do so, as there's so much to see and experience on this beautiful island.

If you're expecting this experience to be a cakewalk, you've signed up for the wrong course. You definitely earn the certification and you paid for it, so be thankful. Overall, the course exceeded my expectations. I found the instructor Kathryn had a wealth of knowledge that she was eager to share with her students, which made for a productive learning environment. It was professionally run and ultimately beneficial to my new careers as an ESL teacher. Highly recommend it!

What would you improve about this program?
More printers, computers for student use.
Response from Destination TEFL

Dear Heather

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are also pleased you stayed on the island to teach.

You'll be pleased to know that we have in fact, bought new computers and printers. We have also swopped around the classroom and student lounge areas (adding air-con to the bigger room) which allows more space for the trainees. We still have the outside sala and pool area for the students to use.

Thanks once again for the feedback.

Kind regards

Samui TEFL 4 week course

I would highly recommend this course as a top choice for anyone looking to teach English as a foreign language. Coming from the USA, straight out of college, with a degree in political science, I had no experience teaching in an official capacity and was quite nervous about my ability to teach English to non-native speakers. Turns out there was no need to worry- Kathryn is a highly skilled and capable instructor, and through her teaching and guidance my classmates and I acquired the many skills one needs to teach ESL.

Samui TEFL is located on the beautiful island of Koh Samui, where you are never short of idyllic surroundings. There is always something to do- whether it be hiking to a waterfall, perusing the street markets, or sunbathing on the beach- and no shortage of people to meet and have fun with.

Although a month sounds like a long time, the course flies by. Before you know it you have your first teaching practicum and are in front of a class, teaching excited students who are eager to learn. In my opinion, the TP's are the most valuable aspect of the course, as they are an opportunity to apply what you have learned in a real classroom setting. After the first one, you feel much more confident about your abilities and they help in soothing some of the anxiety/nerves you may have.

Picking the right TEFL course is extremely important, and Samui TEFL is undoubtedly the only way to go.

Opening up the world to you

I can highly recommend this course. Both Kathryn and Rosanne help and support you the whole way. The facilities provided are excellent and the course gives you the skills you need to be able to Teach. I had so much fun during my time at Samui TEFL. The teaching practices are great as they give you experience of what it is like in the real world. Don't be put off or concerned if you are worried about grammar. I hated grammar and by the end of my course I understood it and know how to teach it. Plus you get to study on a tropical island in Thailand! It truly is an amazing course and one that change your life and open the world up to you.

Samui TEFL

After a lot of deliberation and research on many courses for Teaching English abroad I finally decided on starting this new challenge with Samui TEFL, a small school on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand, which trains people of all ages to become proficient and creative English teachers.

There are so many schools and different programs on offer that the process of picking a school was frustrating and confusing. A real benefit to me was the honest and extremely prompt communication from Rosanne Turner, co-owner of the school and currently the course administrator. Having explained that I liked the course but had concerns about it being accepted in Vietnam as a sufficient qualification Rosanne immediately put me in touch with a contact in Vietnam who could give further guidance. Kathryn Webb, the course trainer and director, was also very helpful with advice from a different angle, having owned and run an English school in Italy prior to joining Samui TEFL. Despite several emails and many questions Rosanne was always extremely informative and even though it was potential business for her school she never came across as trying to sell the course. Her advice and opinions were unbiased and realistic and it was very comforting to get genuine, trustworthy advice from knowledgeable sources without feeling like there was an agenda or that it was seen purely as a business opportunity.

As for the course itself, day to day there was a lot of work. This involved theoretical work and learning grammar basics as well as teaching techniques, lesson planning and creating resources for the lessons. It can be quite intense at times, especially when creating resources before the teaching practices but Kathryn believes in giving students as much opportunity as is realistically possible to prepare in class and avail of her experience rather than flounder on your own after class, unsure of whether an idea will work or not. This in class preparation time makes things a lot less stressful and also means that there is less wasted time working on a flawed idea as Kathryn can quickly point out any problems and help adapt ideas so they will work better in the teaching practices.

Although there is a lot of practical time in class, work does have to be done outside of the school hours of 8.30am – 5.00pm and Kathryn is contactable via email with questions or to review lesson plans all evening and also early in the morning, I’m not sure how she is able to read and reply to everyone, but she does!

The teaching practices is a real strength for Samui TEFL as all teaching practices are with non-English speakers and no teaching practice is teaching your peers. The range of levels for the teaching practices is well organised with classes ranging from kindergarten all through primary age and even adult classes with the Thai Teaching Assistants from the International School of Samui.

There are other benefits, not necessarily educational, of doing a course on Koh Samui. Being a tropical island has it’s benefits when you do have free time with many beautiful beaches and tropical blue water to enjoy. There is also a bustling night-life scene in case you have a Saturday night free and there are walking streets and food markets in different areas of the island each night, serving delicious and very reasonably priced street food. The one downside to completing a TEFL course on a tropical island is having to do teaching practices in schools without aircon, as the combination of nerves and heat inevitably mean perspiration!

The accommodation for Samui TEFL is another bonus for this school. Most accommodation options offered are right next door to the school which is just a short walk from the village of Choeng Mon. Accommodation options range from a basic bungalow to a two-bedroom villa with a kitchen. The kitchen was great asfood could be bought from Tesco and cooked when it was convenient so relying on eating out every night was not an issue.

I think I arrived for the course quite well prepared. Suitable clothes for teaching practices is a must. Whilst there are options to purchase clothes on Ko Samui, the choice is not great. A better option, which I chose to do, is to buy clothes in Bangkok at one of the many shopping malls, Platinum is a good choice for value with wholesale options available.
I would recommend for anyone heading to do this or any similar course to bring a laptop. The school has laptops which can be used but if there are a number of students who need to use the school laptops there could be a supply problem. On my course one girl had an iPad but it seemed to be more of a hindrance to use than was worth it.

The highlight of the course for me (apart from graduating!) was seeing the children react positively and smile when they were praised, when they were involved in activities in class and when they got questions correct. This was especially nice when you knew it was one of the quieter children who took more encouragement to participate; often thier reaction would be subtle, a small smile to their friend after going back to their seat or after you give them a Hi-Five for joining in. From their little smile you could see that something had made their day, be it holding the teacher’s hand or getting a little smiley face on their worksheet, and it made my day as well.

A few further miscellaneous positives of the school are the welcome lunch provided by Kathryn and Rosanne and the close bonds formed from having a small class of no more than 10 students. Also, Rosanne and Samui TEFL really try to get all students successfully employed by the end of the course, and have dedicated jobs pages which are only accessible for past graduates.
Both Rosanne and Kathryn genuinely want to keep in touch with the students after the course and are interested to find out about their teaching experience in different schools which is nice and shows the personal aspect of this course.

The course at Samui TEFL helped me to develop new skills such as classroom management as well as improving my confidence with regard to having to stand in front of a class of 50 non-English speaking students. This was one aspect I was apprehensive of but I feel much more capable now than prior to the course. I have also improved my creative abilities thanks to having to make materials and lesson plans from scratch as well as my organisational skills, again from planning lessons in a methodical way, as taught by Kathryn.

Overall I could not have been happier with the course that Samui TEFL provide with the exception of a longer course being offered. Rosanne and Kathryn are a fantastic team who complement each other very well. I would certainly advise anyone considering a TEFL to at least get in touch with Samui TEFL and ask some questions.

I think the best way to sum up my feelings for the Samui TEFL course and the team there, in Rosanne and Kathryn, would be to say that I would happily recommend any family member or friend to undertake the course without any hesitation.

What would you improve about this program?
After a lot of deliberation and research on many courses for Teaching English abroad I finally decided on starting this new challenge with Samui TEFL, a small school on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand, which trains people of all ages to become proficient and creative English teachers.
It would be very hard for Samui TEFL to improve their course. Rosanne’s organisation and coordination is fantastic; Kathryn is extremely knowledgeable and encourages creativity and improvement on lesson plans available from books. She really instils an attitude of being critical of lessons and whether the material is suitable and if it will work, and if it won’t work she taught the students to be creative and to adapt what we have to make a successful and interesting lesson whilst being economical with resources.
A few more laptops could be of benefit, depending on how many students bring their own. This was not an issue when I did the course as only one student did not have their own laptop.
There is no high school level teaching practice, although this is not generally a problem as the majority of students do not intend to teach at this level, with most opting for primary level positions, however it is one possible option for improvement, though it might not be particularly necessary.
The one way I feel Samui TEFL could really improve their course is to offer a longer course, perhaps a 6 week course maybe just a few times a year. The course is intense and lots of useful information and techniques are taught, but the course is limited by the length. This is no real disadvantage compared to any other TEFL course as nearly all courses are only 4 weeks, if not shorter. However, if a 6 week course was offered, I know I would certainly have been interested in it and given what I know having completed the course, I would definitely recommend it if it were an option. A longer course would enable the teaching of a few more grammatical concepts and also enable for some more teaching practices. An extra adult lesson and a further couple of lessons with P6 level children would have been beneficial to gain more confidence.

A challenging but fun experience!

I am now over halfway through the course and I am very impressed with it. The first week is a bit crazy as we are given so much information. From week 2 onwards it is a lot of fun, it's amazing that we get to experience teaching so early in the course as it enables us to find our strengths and weaknesses early on so we know what to improve on straight away.
Kathryn is a really amazing teacher, she really knows her stuff! She is very good at giving constructive feedback and you can tell she really cares about all her students. Rosanne offers a lot of support as well and we are able to email with any queries we have regarding the course, our CVs, etc. I am very very happy with my decision to embark on this adventure with Samui TEFL!

Samui TEFL was the right choice for me!

I looked at a lot of different TEFL courses and I couldn't be happier with my decision. This course fully prepares you for your future as a teacher in Thailand or elsewhere. Though the class is intense, if you use your time wisely there is plenty of time to roam around the island and enjoy yourself. Rosanne is very helpful with everything you need before, during, and after the course. Kathryn is an amazing instructor and her knowledge of teaching went far beyond my expectations. For anyone interested in TEFL, this is the class for you.
