Best in Pattaya, Thailand

I enjoyed the course, first, because it did not take as long as the CELTA course I took eight years ago, and second, with only one classmate, I did not have to listen to and critique eleven other candidate’s presentations. Instead I worked with the other candidate taking less time to complete projects and assignments.
It was as I expected it to be, and it brought back some of the techniques I learned before.
If someone asked me about taking the course I would recommend SLS because I found the Instructor, Mr. Cillian Hayes to be a competent and patient teacher.
I cannot say whether anything should be added or subtracted as I thought pretty much everything was relevant to the course.
The certificates look extremely professional and are a nice conclusion to the course.
Not much else to say except keep up the good work!

What was your funniest moment?
We had many funny moments at lunch with the TEFL Trainer Cillian. Some great memories.
Also I had some great laughs with the kids while practice teaching.

Teaching english wasnt something that i would normally do! But due to covid and me stuck in thailand i looked into it and to tell you the truth i did alot of research online and SLS was the best looking company on the net and they responded very quickly to my email and it was very straight forward. I also had a friend who went with them and he also recommended them and a teacher i know with 15yrs behind him in teacher also told me they look like a very good company and price wise they was also very good so it was SLS. My course was very hard at times but our instructor cillian pushed us hard but he also helped us to relax and did help me after hours.Also missy was very helpful towards me and mam also gave me good advice and little mam and shompoo was also helpful it was like a little family.Now im not the brightest of people but cillian said just keep going and it will all come together and in time it did and to my surprize i not only passed but got a B+ . So i would like to thank you all for putting up with me for 1 month and helping me to pass.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
It had to be my first lesson to teach the tamar girls. I didnt sleep most nights and would wake up 4am some mornings and that saturday i went with cillian and he said it should all be set up and they have ac as it was very hot. Mmm but when we got there nothing was ready it was very hot i was sweating in me shirt and tye and i had to do my board etc and yes the pressure was on! But i took a deep breath told the ladys i need to write the board out as i rememberd cillian told us to let them know! Then i thought ok i can do this and i calmed down and did it and enjoyed it.

SLS TEFL Program

SLS Training Centre in Pattaya offers an exceptional TEFL course that is second to none. The proprietors and staff have a unique relationship, that is caring, friendly and relaxed. This warm, homely atmosphere, combined with a thorough sense of professionalism and attention to detail, are some of the key ingredients that have enhanced SLS as the Premier TEFL Provider in Thailand.
From the moment you step foot inside the door, you will feel completely at ease, and you'll know straight away that you've made the right choice. How often in life have you make decisions, only to regret them shortly afterwards? Probably more times than you'd wish to admit! Well, I can assure you that you won't be facing such a dilemma if you choose SLS to complete your TEFL Course.
Cillian is a brilliant, highly qualified instructor, who has an abundance of experience, and does his utmost to cater to every individual need. He actively encourages discussion from all the trainees, which ensures lively and stimulating experiences in his classroom.
The course is intensive and challenging, but every effort is made to accommodate participants who may have a practical rather than an academic background. I actually come from an agricultural background, and never foresaw myself as a teacher, let alone as a teacher in a foreign country, adapting to a new lifestyle and culture. But I made the change, and made it successfully, and it's been the start of a whole new chapter in my life.
Let SLS Training Centre be the catalyst that transforms YOUR life. I assure you that it will be one of the best decisions that you've ever made.

After making many inquiries about the TEFL requirements here in Thailand and looking for a business that taught this 120-hour course, I decided on enrolling in the SLS TEFL course in Pattaya. Whether you are a seasoned teaching professional, or someone new to the education environment, you will find this course an excellent program providing you with the methodology to teach English to foreign students, both young or adults. This course is challenging and demanding but once you have completed it, you will look back with a great degree of satisfaction knowing you took several closed book exams, prepared and taught six lesson plans in front of Thai students.

You will learn about teacher qualities, ways to communicate, nine parts of speech, 3P’s Teaching Model, steps to giving better instructions, and much, much more in this intense four-week course.

The TEFL instructor Cillian, is a seasoned education professional and a master at his craft and an excellent mentor throughout this course.

I highly recommend the SLS TEFL course to anyone considering getting the TEFL certificate.

This course is a great value for the money.

TEFL Training

This TEFL course was both interesting and challenging. It has taught me a great deal about what it’s like to be an English language teacher, and what will be expected of me. I wasn’t sure exactly what teaching would involve and was very concerned about being hired without having any teaching experience. I can now safely say I feel ready to take on a teaching position. Here’s a few of the reasons I feel ready:
– I can prepare lessons for classes
– I’m aware of how to check student’s understanding with Concept Checking Questions
– I know lots of fun educational activities and games

I recommend SLS Traning School in Pattaya especially Cillian, my instructor who was really professional and helped me gain the confidence and experience to become a successful teacher.

Exceptional TEFL Training Experience

I started my training with the combined feelings of anxiety and apprehension. By day three my anxiety turned to excitement for the adventure ahead. This is probably due to Cillian Hayes the TEFL instructor. He provided clear explanation of the subject matter, a good sense of progression through the topics, and most of all making it relevant to real work situations.

The programme covers all aspects of Teaching English as a Foreign Language from the grammar focus to class room management and Thai culture. After completing the course I feel I can confidently walk into any classroom or teaching environment with the knowledge and experience to start teaching.

In summary, what an amazing programme! Excellent mentor, well-crafted curriculum, balanced training of theory and practical application. I will recommend SLS Pattaya to anyone who is looking at completing their TEFL certification. Very Impressive.

My Experience with SLS

Once I signed up for the SLS TEFL course, I was anxious to get started on my 2nd career. I had no idea how professionally run the SLS school was. I had a very good 1st impression after just my first hour of classroom participation on day one. Our instructor Cillian knew his stuff, not only did he teach us how to effectively teach ESL but his added real life experiences was priceless, focusing on teaching effectiveness during difficult situations.

Before finishing the course we each had to conduct real-life classes with actual students. This was challenging, scary and most importantly rewarding. I finished that experience with added confidence in my ability to teach.

Since completing the course and receiving my certification, I have been been teaching individuals as well as classrooms filled with adults. I am rewarded after each and every class, knowing that I am helping someone meet a personal language goal.

Sincerely, Don Costanzo
