What I gained doing a TEFL Course Koh Phangan Thailand.

I genuinely benefited from this Koh Phangan TEFL course in many ways. It contains many solid ESL teaching ideas and references to useful teaching books and websites, packed with lesson plans and teacher resources. 

It has made me more confident about planning and delivering live lessons. The TEFL training has encouraged me not to rely on translation methods. In terms of classroom management I've been reminded not to make empty threats, or shout, in an effort to discipline children.

I know (in theory) the best way to deal with young people, but it never hurts to have a few home truths pointed out. Good classroom management and organizational skills become necessary, if you want to be a great teacher in Thailand.

The introduction to different ESL teaching theories was very interesting and fun! As a result I've a far broader outlook to teaching methods. Also been encouraged to vary activities more in the classroom and not be afraid to undertake group work.

I now see that if properly motivated, students will use the English language, in an effort to communicate with their peers. 

I understand that students need an opportunity to practice speaking, thus increasing student talk time.

The complete TESOL course and worksheets have caused me to think very carefully about how I organize a language class and use classroom materials.

 I feel I could now confidently plan lessons for the EFL classroom. 

It was useful to learn about the various language tests, such as TOIEC and TOEFL. Some EFL students may wish to gain employment in an English speaking country.

 Such as Canada, USA, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and let's be honest nearly half the world now has a basic command of English. Even the 11 nations of Asia have come together and the common language that they will use to communicate is English.

My Koh Phangan TEFL course certificate opens doors! So I can now apply for any teaching position in schools across Asia. With a qualification to back up my experience. I w
ill definitely go on and continue to teach.

Without a Koh Phangan TEFL course my teacher abilities would remain at a less effective standard. I had not previously been exposed to such a dynamic way to organize lessons. 

I was also greatly encouraged by my tutor’s comments. I tried very hard to absorb the material and complete the worksheets and assignments correctly. It would've been difficult to proceed without positive feedback, especially after delivering real life EFL lessons.

 Thank you Paradise TEFL Koh Phangan in Thailand. It was a very useful and rewarding teacher training course.

Since completing her Koh Phangan TEFL course in Thailand, Pien traveled and gained experience in Vietnam and New Zealand. She's presently teaching English in Switzerland.

Questions to ask at your job interview.

Upon completion of your TEFL course in Koh Phangan, you will want to start thinking about your interview with potential employers. You will be expected to show them what you've learned on your course and why you would make a great teacher at their school or language institute.

You may even be asked to present a short sample class. When preparing for an interview, many people forget that they should ask the language school or institute some questions as well. You're traveling to a foreign country and you should know some things about the company. 

Look at the schools website. See if you can find any forums about the school or reviews from people who taught there before.  

You don’t want
to end up teaching in a school that you don’t like and start wishing you were home. Before, during and after your interview with your potential employer, there are some things you will want to know about them. Before your interview with the company, see what you can find out about the company by searching the internet. 

If the school seems reputable, prepare and ask some questions during your interview. The interviewer will first ask you the questions to see if you are a good fit for their school. After they interview you, it is your turn to see if they are a good fit for you. If the person interviewing you hasn’t already told you about their school, ask some basic questions.

What kind of students do they have? Kinder garden, college age students. Also, what is the average class size? This is an important one to ask? In some countries, you could teach as many as 60 students at one time.

But in other jobs, 3-5 students at a time. Make sure you're comfortable in handling whatever size of class they may want you to teach.

You should ask about the types of resources available to the teachers. A good school will value their teachers and provide things like Wi-Fi access, lesson plans or curriculum work books. Provide printers and scanners, interactive whiteboards and other tools to make your job easier and more efficient.

Asking the right questions during your interview will help determine if you get a good experience at a school. After all, TESOL jobs are not only about earning a living, they should also be fun and enjoyable as well. 

Top six places for the best paid English teaching jobs in 2017.

Teaching abroad is never usually regarded as a top paying job. Below are the top six paying countries for teachers in 2017.

In general English teachers can stand out in Thailand with their long dresses, khaki shorts and baggy clothes. Having said this, TESOL can be a lucrative industry, for those with a B.A and a TEFL or TESOL course certificate in Thailand.

 Teachers abroad can make a nice pay packet/income to afford luxuries like a nice pad and holidays. ‘Location! Location! Location!’  The joining together of the ten Asian countries, has created competition among the country members. Learning English is gaining momentum as Singapore, the Philippines and Malaysia are so far ahead.

 Countries such as Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia are striving for new curriculum's and ESL teachers for state schools.

TEFL teachers currently make more money where?

6 Vietnam.

What's the average pay grade for a teacher? 
Between US$1200 and US$2000 per month.
Health and travel insurance? No.
 Flight paid? No.
Do Vietnamese employers provide me with a pad? No, but most places will help with finding a place to stay. 

Bonus? Some companies will pay up to 1 month’s salary.

Vietnam is a relatively newcomer to the world of high-paying ESL jobs. Replacing Thailand for the sixth position. As the country opens up to the outside world, a greater need for English speakers has arisen

ESL teachers will find that schools wanting English teachers are in high demand. Great places to work in Vietnam and generally meet the best work conditions and good salaries.

Language centers can pay up to US$20 per hour for qualified teachers who can teach specialist subjects like TOIEC and TOEFL. The downside, if you want to live like a westerner and enjoy a cool western-style apartment, you will need to pay US$500 per month.

time for those who want to work in Japan in terms of benefits and salary.

The ESL teaching culture in Japan is quite interesting. The majority of lessons takes place after school. Japan is also a great place for those wanting to get into business and on line teaching jobs.

Japan has long been a favorite for ‘gap year students’ who take a year  out between school and university. Traveling for a year before heading back to do 3-4 years of study. This has since changed in recent times as countries crack down on qualifications. Japan has now become a common place for those with a degree and an ESL certificate.


3 South Korea.

Health and travel insurance? Yes.

Long been considered as being one of the best destinations to teach, Korea comes in at third sport as the highest-paying country for ESL teacher's abroad. With a slightly lower salary than Taiwan, the extras are absolutely spectacular! The usual ESL job in Korea comes with the lot, insurance, apartment and bonus.

 For those who want to sink their teeth into a job with a kick-ass salary! Many teachers living in the capital (Seoul) make a good living off private students.



2 Taiwan.

What's the average pay grade for teachers in Taiwan?
 US$3000 – US$4000 a month!
Do I get insurance? No, the teacher must cover it themselves.
 Flight paid? No! It seems that’s just the way it is with ESL jobs in Taiwan.

Do employers provide a pad? Yes, but without furniture.
What about a bonus? No return flights, no bonus just a high salary.

Taiwan comes in at number two spot on the list for salary although additional benefits are slim.  With no insurance, no bonus or no flights!  Teachers may have to dip into incredibly-high salaries to fund those extras.

Teachers can take their pick of schools or language centers. Some great local holiday spots can be found to the south of the island.


1 Dubai.

What's the average pay grade for full time teachers in Dubai?
Between US$3,000 and US$5,000 per month.

 Flight paid? Yes, many companies include a yearly return airfare to your home country.

Do employers provide me with a pad? Yes. In Dubai, most companies include free furnished accommodation.
What about a bonus? No unless you count your return fare as a bonus.

 It’s no surprise that Dubai takes pulmonary position when it comes to the highest paying salaries for TESOL jobs abroad. The oil rich nation has the world’s tallest residential tower, an indoor skiing center that’s located in the middle of a desert and the world’s only 7-star hotel.

 The phenomena of learning English among those living in Dubai are a rather recent trend that has soared in the past decade or so. Many residents of Dubai, including the vast number of Pakistanis and Indians living in the oil-rich nation, strive to improve their language skills. International corporations demand good language skills.

The ESL setting in Dubai is quite competitive and teachers get paid according to experience.  Language centers are the most common ESL learning institutes, which mostly cater for the booming hospitality and finance industries.

Most teachers who work in Dubai generally come with years of experience and worked in other countries, especially throughout the Middle East.
