Thailand TEFL intern Jasmine Gaterell

We have sat and played with the children every lunch time, I have looked out the window every single bus journey and we spent last night in our little modest house on the school grounds chatting away, colouring and laughing. Moments I will treasure because the experience has forced me to truly live in the moment and I have never been happier!

Thailand TEFL intern Matthew Bignell

This is just what I needed, and probably the most worthwhile thing I’ve ever done. The real world teaching experience was invaluable and hugely enjoyable and Thailand was amazing to us; I fell in love with the country completely.

Matt, Thailand intern

This communal togetherness that we are being included in is central to Thai culture. Everyone here knows each other, shares what they can and looks out for one another like a big, happy family. We don’t have that in London.

Thailand TEFL intern Toluwa Oyelele

The Thai culture I think is amazing to discover, observe and learn. I loved learning the language, new food tastes, how to cook it, Thai mannerisms. I loved playing Thai games with the kids and generally just absorbing the culture. This is one of the best things I loved about the TEFL experience.

Toluwa, Thailand intern

My experience in Thailand has been one in a million. It really was a trip of a lifetime! I met the most amazing people, learnt so much about myself and the world as well as taught in a fantastic school, and made some golden memories.

Arrival in Thailand

You’ll arrive into Bangkok airport, where a member of our team on the ground will meet you and arrange transport onwards to start your orientation in Ayutthaya.


Your orientation will start in the ancient capital of Thailand, Ayutthaya. Take this chance to meet the other interns, discover Thai culture and history, and explore your beautiful historic surroundings with some expert guidance.

Your teaching experience

Now it's time to travel over to Kanchanaburi, a rural area surrounded by lovely landscapes with a real beating traveller heart.

All our Thai schools are in secluded small towns and villages, and your students will have a really basic knowledge of English, so there’s opportunity for some really rewarding teaching here. Accommodation and some meals are included, and you’ll have plenty of spare time to explore your amazing surroundings in between teaching hours. Our in-country staff will be on hand throughout to give you support or just suggest a fun excursion for the weekend!

Beach trip to Koh Samet

Time to say goodbye!

There will be a celebratory group meal arranged before you are transferred back to Bangkok for a final night’s stay in a city centre hotel before jetting off back home or onto onward travel.
