There are 3 good reasons why I would recommend doing a TEFL course at TEFL campus Phuket:
1. Phuket is a topical paradise - literally! It is a beautiful destination with all the offerings of a dream island - beautiful beaches, perfect weather all year round, a welcoming and friendly local population, amazingly fascinating cultural sights, added with probably the best cuisine in the world and a very low cost of living! However, as Phuket town is conveniently located, about 30 mins away from the beaches and the touristy areas, it gives students a safe zone of protection from the distractions of the endless excitements, allowing them to strike a good balance between leisure time and homework!
2. Good quality tuition - There is a lot of work that needs to be done for a TESOL certificate which was far beyond my expectation. The two instructors at TEFL campus (Eric and Simon) are highly experienced and very professional in their approach. They deliver a very effective syllabus that ensures students can successfully go through the course within the four week period. The Thai lessons they provide are probably unique to the school which gives an excellent perspective of the challenges of learning a foreign language. I also found the Teaching Practice very rewarding as I was teaching real Thai students from the local community. As well as giving me a real life teaching experience, it also game me the opportunity to connect with Thai people and learn more about their culture.
3. The course is accredited by Fort Hayes State University in Kansas - This is a useful attribute which gives the course a wider recognition. When I searched to enrol on a TEFL course, I realised that there were a limited number of courses on the market that were externally accredited by a recognised Educational authority and this was one of them. Employers value this feature of a TEFL certificate as it gives them the confidence they seek about the quality standards of the school.
