About Program

Located near the UNESCO World Heritage site of Angkor Wat, in Siem Reap, Cambodia, you’ll find the same quality 140-hour, 4-week TEFL / TESOL course with highly skilled and passionate trainers, and practicums in local schools, businesses, and NGOs.

Siem Reap is a fantastic destination for its rich culture, great food, variety of adventure activities.

Cambodia is the ONLY country in South East Asia where you can LEGALLY teach without a bachelor's degree.

Salaries are high in comparison to the cost of living, and the locals are friendly!

It's possible to enter Cambodia during the pandemic, with a pre-approved visa, and the Destination TEFL admissions team can assist with that process.
All in all, Cambodia is a great ESL teaching destination for both degree and non-degree holders, and a central base in Asia for exploring (once travel restrictions lift!)

Dont miss out

So I have recently just finished this course and could bot be happier. I already had a level 5 TEFL but doing something online and having the actual practical experience in a classroom is completely different.
It is more like joining a new family than doing a course. All the staff are exceptional and very supportive.
It is hard work dont get me wrong, but everything they do has purpose to prepare you for the realities of being a teacher.
I've now finished feeling like I could confidently teach anywhere.

  • Amazing supportive staff
  • Teaching real students in a school
  • Tools to help you become a great teacher
  • A lot of assignments

Fast Track Option

After completing my level 5 TEFL diploma at an online academy i felt like i was still lacking in a lot of ways. I could not have been more excited when i found Destination TEFL!
They have the best fast track option that adds you to the program for the last 2 weeks to learn all about and take part in classroom practicals. Without Destination TEFL i would not have been ready to start my teaching career.
The tutors, Tina and Chy, are amazing! They are always ready to help you no matter what the question and give such good feedback for you to learn from and to grow.
Thank you Destination TEFL

Destination TEFL Siem Reap

After an exhaustive online search, I stumbled upon Destination TEFL Siem Reap and knew that I had found the TEFL programme that was perfect for me.
From the beginning they gave detailed and honest answers to my many questions which immediately made me feel at ease.
As soon as we had our virtual meeting/Q&A session I was ready to pack my bags and head to Cambodia for the adventure of a lifetime.
The course can be demanding as it packs a lot into four weeks but if you apply yourself, keep on top of your assignments and are well prepared for your teaching practicals, you will succeed.
Along with the hard work you will definitely have time for fun and adventure as you discover more about yourself and the new country you will soon call home.
The Destination TEFL staff and trainers are extremely knowledgeable, helpful and patient. They will guide and encourage you to do your best. The bonds that you form and experiences you share with your fellow trainees will provide you with memories to last a lifetime.

Destination TEFL

If you are looking for a wonderful place to earn a TEFL/TESOL certificate located in a fascinating location look no further. You will not be disappointed with Destination TEFL in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The trainer Tina is a wonderful educator, I don't have enough good words to describe her. Make no mistake, this course is difficult, you will need to use your time wisely. Nothing that is worth anything is easy! Buckle down, do the work, make some great friends from around the globe, and enrich the lives of wonderful children.

What are you waiting for?!

Sometimes you just look back and think, I regret doing this, but I don’t regret a thing with DestinationsTEFL. They were professional till the end. What this means is the people at DestinationsTEFL run a tight ship, you are expected to follow the rules and not make a mess of the training center nor yourself.They put in effort and assisted when things became stressful, like when my visa was not going to go through. They went with me to the immigration offices and talked to the officials. They kept track of all my business regarding my work and stay visas. Honestly I can’t recommend them enough. So what are you waiting for? Just apply

What was your funniest moment?
One day our Trainer Tina had us play a game based on question and answer for you to find a person who shares one of your experiences. The experience was based on cloths you’ve worn. This trainer goes up to the big burly American and wanting to show what happens if you have a experience that doesn’t match ask him: “have you ever worn a thong” the class erupts and goes bananas! The thing was after we all stoped laughing he looked appalled. Apparently not due to the question, because this man just replies, with the honesty of a saint, “yes I have”. Never in my life have I seen a trainer so taken aback and a class go this crazy. I still tease him about it. Best moment ever

I didn't really know what to expect from the course but it has been fantastic!
Destination TEFL really do put you in a position where you feel comfortable to teach abroad.
They introduce you to the culture and you always feel like you are in a healthy environment

Well done Destination TEFL and thank you for the experience!

I need to make up 500 characters for this review and I have said everything that I could. So now I'm just typing out sentences to try and complete the minimum amount of characters.
Nailed it!!

Destination TEFL Thailand

I personally completed the Thailand program. I felt lead, supported, and prepared to teach my first class to ESL students. Destination TEFL Thailand is well worth the money for the culture, care, and education. Mitch is the leader who will build your confidence. He is authentic and wants to see his students succeed. I am grateful I found this program and made a few life long friends along the way. Thailand is a beautiful country to reside if you want to teach overseas. The food is spectacular. The people are wonderful.

What was your funniest moment?
Playing educational games with the students. They laughed, we laughed, it was great to watch them enjoy education.

Cambodian classroom TEFL

The course is full on but very valuable for preparing potential teachers to be competent and confident in the classroom.
I joined half way through as I already had an online TEFL but I'd have rather done the whole month here.
It's so different learning online or in a classroom experience.
I highly recommend Destination TEFL.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I'd complete the whole month long course, not the introductory course.
