"Hi guys, we got the job in Trang, (Thailand) I'm at school now making full use of the free internet!! 😀 its going well. Trang is great, at first we weren't too sure but we have found a lil house we love out of the city with a pond where we can fish and we also found a puppy on Friday night who is now ours 🙂 her name is choc dee. What have you been doing that side? how is dame? He was really great at explaining and teaching us. We have learnt so much in just two weeks he's been fab. We have met some nice people here, our neighbours are really nice, an English guy from London and a Thai girl who is so funny! anyway, thanks for the email, hope you've been well too!!

"As I began my search for an English program in Asia, I stumbled across a variety of courses. [TAT] struck me as the most compelling program for several reasons. First, the program's flexibility is attractive. [TAT] offers a variety of certification locations to obtain the TEFL/TESOL, along with various teaching locations upon completion of the program.
Secondly, a guaranteed job placement provides me with a sense of security. I can feel comfortable travelling to a new country and not worry about searching for work.
Lastly, everyone I contacted who completed the program had nothing but great things to say about it. I was assured to hear that everything from the program organizers, down to the accommodations throughout the certification process and the actual TESOL training was as advertised."
- Andrew Berger - USA
"I'm glad I have chosen you' as the avenue for this as the course package is obviously thorough, well structured and professional. There is a welcome depth of experience evident and considerable support for course attendees. I was particularly drawn to the chance to take part in some formal Thai language lessons and to take part in hands-on teaching practice- so much more relevant than a course conducted in cyberspace!"
- Timothy Malecki - AUS
"You have consistently responded to my many email queries and requests in good time. As an accounting practitioner running my own business for the past 14 years, I fundamentally understand the value of good service, and especially good response time. I have been impressed with Lisa's commitment, professionalism and non-pushy assistance."
- Susan Ramsey - South Africa
"This is just a quick belated email to thank all of the staff in Phuket for making the TEFL course interesting and enjoyable. The course is first class and far exceeded my expectations; I cannot fault the content, teachers or teaching methods used, and will certainly recommend the course to others. Most importantly for me, the course gave me the confidence I need to teach - I'm writing from Taipei, Taiwan where I start teaching and putting what I learnt into practice next week. Thanks and best wishes,"
- Steve Lambert - UK
"This has got to be one of the best places (Koh Samui) I have ever been to and one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was only supposed to be here for 2 months. That was 8 months ago."
- Matt Smith – USA
"Ho Jimmy. About to leave Thailand and go back to the Promise Land and I wanted to let you know what excellent experience I've had out here in the last 2-3 months. Straight from the first day, you guys (yourself, Damian) have been very friendly and welcoming, organising a truly memorable Thailand Experience. Its been pretty much idyllic in many ways.
Damian has been a great support in Samui from the teaching advice right through to travel and Thai tips....sound bloke as well who totally makes you feel at ease. I wish him and his wee family all the best for the future in Samui.
My school was extremely friendly and welcoming. I was only teaching a few hours a week but that suited me right down to the ground, I was looking for a teaching experience and a good break and that's exactly what I got. I hope my pupils will be pronouncing their English with a Scottish burr or twang in the future, although the right to the end I couldn't get them to say favourite. Anyway...thanks for everything you guys have done for me over here, I'll definitely recommend your experience to others I meet.
Also, my fellow teachers were all cool as well and ended up like a wee family! The Thais in Samui and indeed all around the country were all very chilled and friendly too.
So thanks again for a truly memorable experience and I wish you guys all the best in the future, although if you treat your clients in the same way you treated me, you'll have no worries. Cheers"
- Alistair McLauchlan, Scotland
"I would just like to say that I'm really enjoying your program and have absolutely no regrets! I think you guys are great and the support extremely impressive:)"
- Dorrette Botha, South Africa
"How is everything going over in Thailand? Rachel and I returned home this past Friday and are already back to the old grind of things. I would much rather be back in Thailand. I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for everything, my time in Thailand was truly incredible and something that will always stand out as one of the most amazing experiences in my life. Once again, thank you so much for all your help. I hope to be in touch with you again soon. Happy and Healthy New Year!"
- Melissa Frank, USA
I couldn't have asked for any more from you. Bangkok is vibrant and It did take me a few weeks to settle in. I have to say now though, I love Bangkok"
- Sarah Eaglesfield – UK
"My brother took your Ko Samui course last year and he said it was excellent. He's now teaching in Bangkok with a top language school and he asked me to come over. I would just love to do this. Thank you so much for accepting me, i can't wait. "
- Meghan Hughes - USA
"My experiences in Thailand have inspired me to apply to become a qualified teacher in the UK, and the overall experience has expanded my horizons and given me numerous happy memories, and I made some enduring friendships as well. In fact, I am already planning my next trip to Thailand - it has been said to me on many occasions that people rarely come to Thailand just once, and I would definitely agree with that. Making the decision to go away is a big one, but it is one you will never, ever regret."
- Becky Rice - UK
"I don't have anything but positive feedback for my experience with the course and my work done at [Job Placement]. I thought the TEFL Training was excellent. And I think the way King's has taken us in, trained us, and provided superb life support has been brilliant. Thank you very much"
- Thomas Brownlow - USA
"I just wanted to say thank you for providing such a wonderful experience and educational opportunity. I enjoyed the TEFL course and I strongly believe that the knowledge and skills I gained will serve me very well in the future. The teachers and staff were absolutely wonderful - they were supportive, helpful, very knowledgeable, and a lot of fun! It is clear that Ray and Stefan are "experts" in their respective areas; Ben and Hendry provided a lot of constructive feedback that helped me to improve my own teaching skills. It was a pleasure having Sompob, Tu, Aok, Ya, and Pom in class - they made teaching practice a lot of fun and I really enjoyed laughing with them!
The front desk staff were so friendly and helpful, as were the other teachers, even though they weren't even working with me directly. My favorite part of the course was actually Thai language class with Tin - please tell her hello for me and rest assured that she is a wonderful teacher.
I will strongly recommend the program to my friends at home who are considering pursuing TEFL opportunities in Thailand.
Congrats on having such a successful program and thanks again for everything! Sincerely,"
- Erika Young - USA
"The accommodation is great and right by the beach. Thanks for sorting us out such good places, I'll be perfectly comfortable here for the coming months"
- Christian Beal, UK
"The Thailand TEFL Experience is a great way to simplify the process of moving to the other side of the world. Each and every claim they made on the website/over the phone has been completely fulfilled. Honestly, the only complaint I can think of is that the umbrella provided as part of the welcome pack breaks easily and considering all the other perks of the program the shoddy umbrella becomes rather superfluous.
As stated in the program details, upon arrival you are greeted at the airport, taken to a hotel and within hours will have a fully operational cell phone. The hotel is clean and comfortable, the staff is lovely and while the pool is comically small there is a great place to get pad thai/have your laundry done a mere two minutes away.
Also, the weekend outings scheduled by the Thailand program provide welcomed and exciting escapes to some of Thailand's most beautiful islands.
All in all, it is a great program. The teachers are qualified and the coordinator is reliable. If given the chance I would do it again"
- Blaire Davis, USA
"We have been searching the internet reading up on all the TEFL courses available in Thailand, with every other company as well, and this course seems to be the best value money wise for what you get. We have chosen eTEFL as it is a reputable company and recognised throughout the world, so if we plan to travel elsewhere in the world we have the credentials to teach English there as well."
- Kelly & Troy Kelliher - Australia
“All and all the course was very thorough and included all aspects, and beyond, what you would expect from a TEFL course. The only small complaint is in the delay of our Amazon voucher/travel handbook that myself and my partner were waiting for. The trainer was a very enthusiastic teacher and easily approached regarding any queries.”
- Simon Whitney - Australia
"I have been researching lots of TEFL web sites and I was pulling my hair out. Finding your site site was big relief. Your site just seems well laid out and really easy to use. Unlike the other so-called TEFL websites, yours doesn't contain numerous spelling and grammar mistakes. Thanks to Lisa for the quick responses to my emails."
- Jennifer Carlton - USA
"Brilliant experience, I will be recommending this program to all my friends. This is something that everyone should do at least once in their life"
- Emma Witort – UK
"I can’t imagine how I would have coped teaching without this experience under my belt…I learned so much."

"I've now got over the shock of the energy you use up doing this job. I Hardly get time to stop and think but... I love it"
- James Cane, UK
"The school has been soooooo welcoming, all the teachers are lovely and have gone out of their way to attempt conversation and make me feel comfortable. Any questions can always be answered by Jimmy who is only a phone call away! The school has no preconceptions about the TEFL teaching style, they appreciate whatever you do and do not judge in any way. You are respected and fully catered for whilst at the school and join their social network of teachers! The teachers are so happy here and never seem too stressed despite their large classes, it's very refreshing. There is a constant stream of TEFL students doing courses so having a social life is not a problem"
- Andrea Lamont, UK
"Hi Jimmy, So, I'm back home and finally getting settled in and over my jetlag. Melissa forwarded me what she wrote to you, but I just wanted to also thank you and the program for everything. Teaching in Samui was such a great experience and I am so so so happy that we did it. The rest of our travelling was also amazing....the whole thing was probably the best thing I've ever done. I wish I could rewind and do it again. So now that I'm home, the job search is officially on. Thank you for making yourself available as a reference. I really appreciate it. Take care and stay in touch. Thanks again, Jimmy!"
- Rachel Brown, USA
"I have learnt a lot from Thailand, and I hope to visit again someday. I really wish I didn't have to leave, I miss it so much. All my fears of being away from home were erased and my time here made me realize I was ready to go off on my own, and visit different cultures and learn something new. Everyone was so kind, and the travellers I met just going through were so interesting and wanted to know what I was doing. I just wish I could have been here longer. It will be a memory I will hold close to my heart, and an experience I will never forget."
- Anna Spencer – USA
- Jenn Hand, USA
"I discovered that teaching is a skill you have to learn. I now feel much more confident about going abroad to teach."
- Joan Stewart – USA
“Dame was very enthusiastic and very thorough and kept lessons very interesting.”
- Calvin Von Nimble - South Africa
"Hi, Lisa. Just thought I would drop you a quick email to tell you how much I am enjoying the TEFL course on Phuket Island. The people are really welcoming, friendly and so helpful. Ian is amazing, and the hotel that he owns is a luxury to return to each evening after a long day at the language school. I am also meeting great people and the others on the course are wonderful. After the course is complete would you be able to help me in finding a school to then teach English in as this would be great? I am now in the second week and loving every day out here in Thailand. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Sarah Bullock - England
"This is one of the best decisions I have ever made. It was a very enjoyable course, well organized and our trainer was brilliant. I can't say a bad thing about this course."
- Brian Donnelly - England
"This was a great experience for me. Samui is beautiful and the children were a pleasure to teach. If there was a next time, I would make sure it was longer."
- Andrew Terris – UK
“Trainers were great. Did very nice job to prepare me for teaching.”
- Chad Sahlberg - USA
“Damian was a wonderful trainer. He was super organized and his lessons were so informative and interesting. We can't praise him enough, he set the standard for English teaching at a very high level.
The first week, when Simon and I were both at the course (and not in the hospital), was so great and we thoroughly enjoyed the classes. Jane was also very helpful and supportive. She presented the grammar 3 lesson very well and we really enjoyed her involvement and help throughout the course”
- Isobel Thompson - Australia
"It's been an absolutely wonderful experience in Chiang Mai and in Thailand altogether. [my co-ordinator] has been outstandingly helpful. She's very prompt with responses regarding questions that I might have regarding certain things. Upon arrival in Chiang Mai, she spent several days with me searching for work and trying to figure out the best possible options. It would have been a very difficult and different experience had I not gone with your organization and I am definitely glad that I did. It's like having a sidekick when the uncertainties of travel can feel so overwhelming, Jessica and your organization were always there to assist and guide" Thank you for your help.
- John Crowley, USA
".....I really enjoyed the Thailand program, sooo glad i did it. The programme made the experience so much easier and so much more fun. Thailand is amazing and the teaching was a wicked experience. My school in Bangkok was really supportive, the kids are so funny and you get plenty of free time to explore Thailand. I met some really cool people...
wish I was still there :("
