AT EFL we not only teach English as a Foreign Language (EFL) but also train EFL teachers at our sister school SEE TEFL. Training includes 4 weeks of classroom skills training onsite plus 6 observed teaching practices at a range of local formal schools in Chiang Mai. Our teachers have experience with kindergarten, primary, secondary and college classes.

Our teachers come from a wide range of countries. However, they are mainly native English speakers from the USA, the UK and Australia. They are mainly university graduates aged from 22 to 50. In addition, there are always several trainees in each training group who have post-graduate degrees in science subjects and math.

Why do these professional people wish to become English teachers?

Since 2006 we have trained over 2,000 EFL teachers. Most are from professional backgrounds but have decided to follow a new career path as they are seeking new challenges and experiences in their lives. Our experience of teaching our foreign teachers is that the people who join our training program are motivated, professional, and mature. They know how to adapt their behavior to conform with Thai cultural norms. Included during training is a full day of cultural awareness training and several hours of Thai language study.

Our teachers have not chosen to become EFL teachers because they are motivated by money or material gain; they genuinely care about being in the classroom and understand the responsibility the goes with this. However, they do expect to work in a professional environment with a salary that provides a comfortable lifestyle. Another particularly important consideration for foreign teachers is the capability of their school to provide prompt visa and work permit support. This is important because without it, they are forced to leave Thailand and their school will then need to find a replacement teacher at short notice.
