Great experience

Great experience teaching at a summer camp in Thailand. Intense but rewarding work, where we had a great end of programme trip on an island and some short stays in Bangkok and other cities to break it up. We had the opportunity to explore quite a few different cities and places in Thailand and had a lot of different cultural activities on our days off, some language lessons that I enjoyed and overall a diverse & jam-packed experience. Memories that will last a lifetime, and brilliant that everything was fully funded. Would recommend :)

Fantastic Experience

My programme in Vietnam was an extremely rewarding and fun experience. I was placed in as lively city and was able to travel across the north of Vietnam during my weekends. The programme has definitely benefited me in regards to my personal confidence and ability to navigate a new culture as well as experience what teaching would be like in a foreign country. The mid-programme and end-of-programme trips organised by the company were also amazing and such a good opportunity to develop friendships with other people on the programme!

Couldn't recommend more

This was a great experience that gave me so much confidence, not only in my ability to teach and lead but also my own personal development. It is an extremely generous company and everything was funded which is very rare to find with other teaching programmes. All the food and accommodation was of great standard as well as the cultural excursions. I definitely recommend doing one of the programmes as you gain a TESOL qualification for free and get great teaching experience. You also get to meet other like minded people and immerse yourself in a new culture.

  • Fully funded!
  • Mini break at the end of the programme
  • TESOL qualification

I loved the little idiosyncrasies in the process of teaching English, especially in the early weeks. The times when we could guide teachers in the learning of English confirmed that I would enjoy teaching longer-term, something I was unsure of until the program and I am glad that I learned I could handle it and be quite good at it. I loved gradually--and sometimes slowly-- learning more of the Spanish language. The camp was about English immersion, and all our lessons were done entirely in English, but if you ventured outside of the camp to the bar or to the local shops (and by 'local,' I mean the shops an hour away in Montoro,) you needed Spanish. As a Latino in the United States, it meant a great deal to me intellectually and personally to improve my Spanish while guiding others in the English language. It motivates me to consider the yearlong program in Colombia. I would be thrilled to do this if you'd have me again.

I loved the days after swimming when my roommate and I would sit on our deck and look at the Andalusian hills. Our house had an Italian coffee maker and we got very good at using it during this time. So that memory--of swimming and then very calmly drinking home-brewed coffee is special to me.

I loved the times when we would have late-night conversations at Bar El Nino, the inside jokes, the laughter. I loved walking up and down the hiking trails and learning about each other in small unspoken ways.

I loved the way this program returned me to an older, more confident version of myself. Being in university can make you question everything about yourself -- your worth, your values, your ability in comparison to others--but I was so grateful for this program which confirmed a self-confidence I thought I had lost. I left Venta feeling more capable, prepared for a job outside my comfort zone, and with a huge new set of friends to help me if I need them.

The best experience of my life

If you want to try something different, Gotoco offers many exciting opportunities.

I taught English in Thailand for almost 2 months in 2023, and I don't regret it. It was an excellent way to travel, get experience working abroad, meet cool people, and all while being very affordable. It involved a lot of cultural trips, Thai language classes, Thai cooking lessons and many more. I have very fond memories of my time with Gotoco!

I would recommend the experience to anyone who fancies an adventure.

  • Meet new people
  • Exploring different culture and environments
  • Build confidence
  • Seem like they’re short of stuff

Gotoco FUNDED TEFL Adventures (Bali, Thailand, Colombia, Europe, SE Asia)

Travelling to Bali with Gotoco was an amazing experience that enabled me to meet people with the same interests which included travelling and exploring the career of teaching. It provided an opportunity to travel and learn about a different culture whilst allowing you to share the teaching experience with your fellow Gotoco participants.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Gotoco as they were very supportive throughout the program and helped us organise a variety of trips outside of teaching.

Adventure of a lifetime ! 🫶

I will be forever grateful to have discovered GoToCo. I originally applied to a 6 week programme in Bali which turned into almost a year long adventure in Southeast Asia. Everything is genuinely fully funded, from flights and accommodation to food and activities. The funding is extremely generous, the staff are amazing and so supportive, and will help you through any problems that may arise with travelling.
Teaching in Bali was so special and enjoyable for me, and the partner company was equally as amazing. The people are so lovely, and obviously the place is beautiful. This company has truly changed my life and I would 100% recommend it to anyone wanting to teach and travel.

  • Extremely generous funding
  • Amazing support from staff
  • Experience the beauty of Bali
  • A few food hygiene issues (nothing to do with GoTo though)
  • A lot of bugs (bring bug spray!)
  • Genuinely cannot think of a 3rd con of Bali

One of the best experiences of my life

The Bali programma was an incredible opportunity to meet like-minded people while exploring a new country, a new culture, and connecting with the local community. Everything was provided for, from food and accommodation to flights. The Gotoco team was extremely helpful in sorting out any issue that would arise, they took care of us when we felt unwell (this will most likely happen to any European when living in South East Asia!) and they organised so many trips and excursions throughout our stay. Thanks again for this fantastic experience!

  • Adventure
  • Confidence building
  • Non-European food/hygiene standards (not really a con)
