Lucy Makepeach in Cambodia

Lucy Makepeace

Lucy taught in Cambodia for two months before being offered a permanent role in Phnom Penh.

Knowing that I am helping these children and adults to build their confidence and improve their English is so rewarding, and I find their determination and humility inspiring. They are not only learning from me, but I have learnt so much from them too.

Jasmine-Leann Gaterell in Thailand

Jasmine-Leann taught in Thailand for two months on the Thailand TEFL Internship

I wish everyone could spend a period of their lives in a school such as this to truly put what it is important into perspective. The world would definitely be a better place.

Charlia Adams in Cambodia

Charlie Adams

Charlie taught in Cambodia for two months on the Cambodia TEFL Internship

I really enjoyed immersing myself in the culture and I’ve learnt such a lot. The kids are incredible, and their attitude towards learning is inspiring. It was definitely the children that made my teaching experience so enjoyable.

Rachel Melton in South Africa

Rachel Melton

Rachel taught in South Africa for two months before securing a permanent teaching role in China

I was already planning on going travelling and this meant I could travel and do something meaningful too! Teaching the children was incredible and made me realise what I want to do as a career later on in life: teach! I also made some pretty close friendships as well as getting to live in an amazing city.

How does a TEFL Experience work?

Image description

Will you help me plan? There seems to be a lot to organise

Absolutely. Our staff know TEFL inside out! You’ll have a TEFL Adviser to help you choose an experience to fit you, then advise on things like organising your visa. Once you touch down in-country, our partners will take over – they’re local experts and can even recommend the best spot for a beer. We’ll give as much (or as little) support as you need – just ask!

Image description

I want to see the world, but I'm worried about travelling alone!

Don’t worry – we get it. It can be nerve-wracking to set off overseas alone, but on a TEFL Experience you’ll be with a group of travellers who are all in the same boat. It’s the perfect chance to make new friends and enjoy the support that group travel provides.

What kind of additional costs am I looking at?

The money you pay us covers the essentials like accommodation, meals and airport pickups. As well as this, you’ll need to book flights, cover your visa and sometimes police check costs, and bring spare cash to cover things like weekend meals, excursions, sightseeing and shopping. We’ll let you work out your own budget for this.

I enjoyed every moment of the i-to-i TEFL course, it is very efficiently structured and everyone can get something valuable out of it. Even though I studied B.Ed and majored in English, this Course gave me the additional spin on teaching English as a Foreign language, the types of activities and resources that are tried and tested in the TEFL classroom etc. It is a must for anyone who wants to specialize in ESL/TEFL and though I have years of experience teaching TEFL/ESL in South Korea, UAE etc, I just wish I had done this Course sooner, (though I self-taught and used many of these concepts in service) I learned so many valuable new or better approaches / techniques in this Course and I look forward to applying them in my next TEFL/EFL classroom. Thank you i-to-i !! <3 Ronell
I was very pleased to experience this course. Once I started I found myself hooked and I sat for long periods going through the many facets of the course. There are many forms of resources available as well as actual in class videos which were very insightful. I come from a training background and therefore teaching in a class room has a different dynamic. I was very happy with the guidance I received.
If you are hesitating over whether or not to take this course... don't! I found it very useful and interesting and you will learn and have fun at the same time.
