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

TEFL teacher in classroom 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.

Pashka, Thailand intern

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 Internship.

Toluwa, Thailand intern

TEFL teacher eating Thai food 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.
