Diversity & Inclusion

BIPOC Support

Salisa Language School accepts TEFL trainees and students from any country or region in the world. The main criteria for anyone participating in our course is that the English language is spoken and understood very well. Separately a rule promoted by the authorities in Thailand is that graduated TEFL teachers seeking work there hold a Bachelor-Degree in any field. If TEFL graduate is a non-native English speaker (NNES) they must pass a TOEIC test before being accepted into a position as a TEFL teacher at a Thai school. TEFL graduates from NES countries (Australia, USA, New Zealand, Canada, the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland) are highly sought after and no TOEIC test is required. The Bachelor-Degree, supported by TEFL graduation will, in the main, assist POC and NNES in obtaining TEFL teaching positions in Thailand.

An American in Thailand

I’m an American currently living in Thailand. I took the course in November of 2023. I found it to be very intense but also very rewarding at the end. The instructor was knowledgeable given his rich experience in the field. There was also practical experience provided in an actual classroom setting with 30 kids! That was very helpful and encouraging for me that I could actually do this. I’m happy that I chose the Salisa Language Center for my TEFL education. I feel like I received a lot of value for my money.

Must do for those who want to teach English

I did the TEFL course in September 2023. It was quite intense, a lot of useful information. The trainer Cillian is the best person for this role who could not only follow the syllabus but also add lots of constructive criticism and shared his rich experience. Especially when we talked about bad behavior of the students he could show a lot of examples from his practice and it was priceless. I was slightly confused why we had school practice very soon after the course started, but later I understood that it was good not only to learn everything and then practice, but also reflect on our practice later, when we had something specific to illustrate and to discuss during the following lessons.
I wish I had done this course before I actually had my first school job (7 years ago), it would have helped me a lot.
What surprised me most was that tests were open questioned. I was expecting multiple choice but I had to write all that I have in my head. I think it’s quite fair and need to stay like this to keep the level of the teachers high.
Thank you all the team for your welcoming and warm attitude to every student and readiness to help at any part of the day!

Pros
  • Structured
  • Friendly
  • Professional
Cons
  • Duration (wish it would be longer)
  • More different groups to practice on
  • More methodologies to teach the language

TEFL course

I am a former secondary teacher but had not taught English before and I wanted to learn to teach English. It was a good course with a nice balance of class time and practicum. I was especially pleased to be able to practice teach in an actual school environment with the actual time constraints of a normal educational environment. The teacher was knowledgeable and the school anticipated and provided everything I needed to be successful. The methodology that I learned was easy to use in many situations.

TEFL

I completed the 120-hour TEFL Course with Salisa Language School.
Before graduation, I received a teaching job offer from an established Thai school. Thanks to Paul's mentoring.
The course is well designed by our trainer Cilian, who delivered it professionally; be prepared for the intensive lessons, full schedule and expectation. Cilian's constructive criticism drove us to next level.
The course ascertained our English pronunciation; two of us were non-native English speakers. I am now confident to speak out/ present in public and at my school. We did well in TOEIC test; supported by preparation of Mardeth.
With friendly trainers, resources and strong support staff (Mam and Nongluk); I highly recommended this course for those seeking a teaching job in Thailand.

Pros
  • Excellence; a practical workshop quality
  • Adult learning experience; make it happen!
  • Enjoyed and had fun

TEFL 120 hour course

I completed the 1 month TEFL course at Salisa and it was a great experience! Teachers were of high quality and very helpful. My teaching has improved from doing the course and I highly recommend anyone to join if you want to teach to a high standard. The course is in depth and there are many opportunities to teach to real classes and schools which makes this course worthwhile. My favourite part of the course was teaching at Srisuvit school, as it gave me a real insight into how to manage a Thai classroom. Thanks to Cillian, Paul and Mam for providing a great experience.

Pros
  • Real class teaching
  • Staff very nice
  • In depth course

I highly recommend the TEFL course at SLS as it is a thorough, structured program that provides future English teachers with the abilities and information required for a successful career.

  • Engaging learning materials
  • Continuous support
  • Positive learning environment

TEFL course

I completed the course in March-April 2023. I would like to note a very pleasant and friendly atmosphere on the course and at the school as a whole. It can be seen that a lot of effort has been invested in creating the course. The materials are very useful, I have learned a lot of new knowledge, which I now use in my work. It should also be noted that presentations and practice at school give an opportunity to practice before starting work. Teacher Cillian always gives constructive feedback. I highly recommend this course.

TEFL Course

SLS School is the good place to get TEFL Certificate and for who want to be an English Teacher. In TEFL Course I had opportunity to get more education and I could practice the real teaching in house and Thai school. In this course, there were both interesting and challenging. I am a non-native speaker and the whole course is all English, so it was hard for me to catch the lesson. Especially when the teacher used idioms and professional words. The course has a lot of interesting topics. But the course took only 4 weeks, so it kind a lot of topics for me. I prefer less topics but with deep and a lot of informations in each topic. The staff at SLS are very friendly and helpful. If you had any problems, they are always welcome to help you and gave great advice. I highly recommend this school for who want to be an English teacher and work in Thailand as an English Teacher.

Pros
  • Get more ideas in leading the class
  • Feel more confidence in teaching
  • Get more techniques in teaching
