What I gained doing a TESOL Course -  Koh Phangan Thailand

I have genuinely benefited from this TEFL course in many ways. The TEFL course contains many solid ESL teaching ideas and references to useful English teaching books and websites packed with ESL lesson plans and teaching resources. It has made me more confident about planning and delivering live lessons. The TEFL Thailand English teacher training course has encouraged me not to rely on translation methods. In terms of classroom management I have 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 organisational skills are essential if you want to be a great teacher.

The introduction to different ESL teaching theories was very interesting and fun, as a result I have a far broader outlook to teaching methods. I have also been encouraged to vary activities more in the classroom and not be afraid to undertake group work. I was previously nervous about possible lack of order in the classroom but now understand that students need an opportunity to practice their language skills while the teacher takes a backseat, thus increasing student talk time.

The complete TEFL course and worksheets have caused me to think very carefully about how I organize an English language class and use classroom materials. I feel I could now confidently plan English lessons for the EFL classroom with a decent balance between the four skills even if I do not have my course to hand.

It was useful to learn about the various English Language tests, such as TOIEC and TOEFL, that students may wish to work towards in order to gain employment in an English speaking country such as Canada, USA, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and lets be honest nearly half the world now has a basic command of English. Even the 11 nations of Asia are now coming together and the language that they will communicate together is English.

My TEFL certificate qualifies me to teach English, 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 continue to teach English. Without a TEFL course my teaching abilities would remain at a less effective standard. I had not previously been exposed to such a dynamic way to organize lessons. In the past when I worked with children and without hardly any formal teacher training) my lesson plans were based around the need for students to be able to repeat vocabulary, items and structures in quite a formal way. I now see that if properly motivated, students will use language spontaneously in the classroom in an effort to communicate with their peers.

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, but it would have been difficult to proceed without positive feedback - especially after delivering real life TEFL lessons. Thank you Paradise TEFL in Koh Phangan- it was a very useful and rewarding course.

Since completing her TEFL training in Koh Phangan, Pien, travelled and gained experience in Vietnam and New Zealand and she is presently employed as an English teacher in Switzerland.

Experiences of  newly trained TEFL TESOL teachers

Ella age 22 graduate - In June 2013  my boyfriend and I both graduated from the university of Edinburgh and decided to take at least a year out - before continuing to graduate - to teach somewhere overseas. The main reason that we took a TEFL course was because we wanted to travel without high costs and to take the opportunity to live somewhere different for a while. With these reasons in mind, we both took a 200 hour on line TEFL course and it was very rewarding. After we finished
the on line TEFL course we busied ourselves with some office work and applied for every up to date teaching English job that we 
could find, even in South America and Africa. However we mainly focused on South East Asia, teaching English in Thailand - Cambodia - China - Japan. After a month or so of sending dozens of applications per week and not hearing nothing back, we finally go
t some replies - teaching English job offers in South Korea and China but the one that really appealed was located in Buon Ma Thuot, a small province in Vietnam. We did an interview via Skype with the recruiter for the International school and a week later the contracts were sorted and we were booking our flights - exciting times. The place suited us perfectly - the school looked amazing and the guys in charge really seemed on the ball.

On 17th August, we started our 30 hour journey to Vietnam. We arrived in Ho Chi Minh City in the late afternoon of the following day, jet lagged but very exited. Our recruiter to us to a fancy sea food restaurant in the city and then let us sleep before flying the next day to Buon Ma Thuok with our new boss and his partner. The flight was breathtaking and we were greeted with flowers from school teachers and we have been treated kindly ever since. Our apartment which is free with the job is brilliant with all the home comforts that you would not normally associate
 with a TEFL teaching English job including WIFI and A/C, comfy sofa, TV, kitchenette and double bed. We fitted our own mossy screens.

We have been teaching English for three months now and having an absolute amazing time. Very few people speak English and we are the only white people staying here long term in town, people are very friendly and welcoming. We are constantly being invited to dinner and coffee and our boss has treated us like family. As far as the teaching goes we are having a much easier time than we imagined. It is our first time TEFL teaching and things have gone surprisingly smoothly.. Were teaching Kinder- garden and primary so the kids are between 3 - 10 years old and they are really great in fact a blast. The first couple of lessons was a bit nerve racking but we now feel far more confident. We have also had a chance to travel and sight see in Vietnam, elephant trekking, a city called Dalet and Ho Chi Minh city and the beach at Nha Trang is wonderful and relaxing. So there is definitely plenty to see and do here and our wages cover the travel costs.

As for advice for potential TEFL teachers I would say go for it, as it is an incredible experience. I also recommend Dave's ESL Cafe as a great place to start looking for a  TEFL job, it served us well.

Questions to ask at your TEFL job interview

If you have just been certified to teach TEFL course or are thinking about going through the process, you will want to start thinking about your interview with potential employers. You will be expected to show them what you have learned in 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 are traveling to a foreign country after all and you should know some things about the company you are traveling thousands and thousands of miles to work for. 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. Most schools will have a website that you can look at. See if you can find any forums about the school or reviews from people who have either taught or taken TEFL classes there.
   

If the school seems reputable, get ready to ask them 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? Kindergartners? College age students? Also, what is the average class size? This is an important one to ask because in some countries, you could be teaching as many as 60 students at one time. But in other jobs, you might only be teaching 3-5 students at a time. Make sure you are comfortable in handling whatever size of classes they may want you to teach.

You should ask about the types of resources that are available to the English teachers. A good school will value their teachers and provide things like Wi-Fi access, lesson plans or curriculum work books to follow and elaborate on, copy machines, interactive whiteboards and other tools to make your teaching job easier and more efficient. Asking the right questions during your interview will help you determine if you will have a good experience teaching at a particular school. After all, teaching English jobs are not only all about earning a living, they should also be fun and enjoyable as well. 


Top six places for the best paid teaching English jobs in 2014 - 2015

Teaching English abroad is never usually regarded as a top paying job but below are the top six paying countries and places to teach English abroad in 2014-15. In general English teachers can stand out in Asia with their imitation label shirts - blouses - dresses - khaki  shorts and baggy Thai dye pants bought from the market place across the continent. Having said this, ESL teaching can be a lucrative industry -  for those with a B.A and a TEFL or TESOL certification, English teachers abroad can make a nice pay packet/income to afford luxuries like a nice pad and holidays. What it all boils down to is:  ‘Location! Location! Location!’ and with the joining together of the ten Asean countries in 2016 competition amongst the country members for learning English is hotting up especially as Singapore - the Philippines and Malaysia are so far ahead. Countries such as Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia are striving for new English teaching curriculum's and English teachers for their state schools in 2015-2016.

TEFL teachers currently make more money in...

6  Vietnam
What is the average pay grade for an English teaching job? 
Between US$1000 and US$2000 per month.
Do I get insurance? No.
Is my flight paid? No.
Do Vietnamese employers provide me with a pad? No, but most places will help with finding a  place to stay.
What about a bonus? Some companies will pay up to 1 month’s salary.

Vietnam is a relatively newcomer to the world of high-paying ESL jobs, recently knocking off Thailand for the sixth position. As the country opens up to the outside world, a greater need for English speakers has arisen in the past 10 years. ESL teachers will find that schools are in remarkably high demand, as there is an ESL center on practically every corner of the two major cities, Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. Schools and universities are also great places to work in Vietnam and generally have the best work conditions and salaries. Language centers can pay up to US$20 per hour for qualified teachers who can teach specialist subjects like IELTS and TOEFL. The downside of things in Vietnam, if you want to live like a westerner and enjoy a cool western-style apartment, you will need to pay around US$500 per month.

4 Japan
What is the average pay grade for an English teaching job?
Around the US $2000 - 2,500.
Support network in place to help you get settled  
Do I get insurance? Sometimes, check your contract.
Is my flight paid? Yes, return airfare is usually included.
Do Japanese employers provide me with a pad? Sometimes! If not, your employer should assist you in finding a place.
What about a bonus? A small bonus that is less than one month’s salary! Note: Ever since the earthquake and tsunami have affected Japan, teachers have been reportedly leaving in record numbers. The next few years will be an interesting 
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 English teaching takes place after school, with many institutes (although the occasional private student may come along and turn your mostly-free day into a split shift). Japan is also a great place for those who want to sink their teeth into business and on line teaching English abroad.

Japan has long been a favourite for ‘gap year students’ who take the year off their studies between school and university to spend a year  discovering the world before heading back to do four years of  study. This has since changed in recent times as countries crack down on qualifications, and Japan is now a common place for those who have recently obtained their degree.


3 South Korea
What is the average pay grade for an English teaching employment?
US$2000-US$3000 a month.
Do I get insurance? Yes.
Is my flight paid? Yes, return airfare.
Do Korean employers provide me with a pad? Usually a furnished apartment!
What about a bonus? Most ESL jobs offer a bonus of 1 month’s salary.

Long been considered as being one of the best destinations to teach, Korea comes in at third sport as the highest-paying country for English teaching jobs 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, Korea is definitely the place to be. South Korea that is, and many teachers living in the capital (Seoul) make a very good living off teaching private students.

2 Taiwan
What is the average pay grade for an English teaching position?
Approximately US$3000 – US$4000 a month!
Do I get insurance? No, the teacher must cover it themselves.
Is my flight paid? No! It seems that’s just the way it is with ESL teaching jobs in Taiwan.

Do employers provide me with 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, English teachers may have to dip into their incredibly-high salary to fund those extras. English 
teachers have the option of schools or language centres, while some great local holiday spots can be found to the south of the island.

1 Dubai
What is the average pay grade for full time teaching English jobs?
Between US$3,000 and US$5,000 per month.
Do I get insurance? No, with this pay grade you can pay for it yourself!
Is my 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.

In first position, it’s no surprise that Dubai takes pulmonary position when it comes to the highest paying salaries for ESL teaching jobs abroad. The oil rich nation has enough to splurge on the world’s tallest residential tower, an indoor skiing centre that’s located in the middle of a desert and the world’s only 7-star hotel – the Burj al Arab. The phenomena of learning English amongst 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, have been spurred on to improve their English skills by the number of international corporations that have set up their base there. The ESL setting in Dubai is quite competitive and English teachers are paid according to experience.  Language centres are the most common ESL learning institutes, which mostly cater for the booming hospitality and finance industries.
Most English teachers who work in Dubai generally come with years of experience and have worked in other countries, especially throughout the Middle East.
