Inclusive 4 Week TEFL Program Fee

The 4 Week TEFL Course Fee includes all course costs including study materials, reference books, testing and certification. In addition, SEE offers two completely optional accommodation options to choose from.

Optional Accommodation for 4 Week TEFL

SEE TEFL can book an optional 30-night accommodation for $ 350 USD single / $ 400 USD double occupancy. This is completely optional and most attendees find their own accommodation from among the many available in Chiang Mai. See our Accommodation page for more information. Payment of the optional accommodation fee is made at the same time as the deposit.

Grammar Terminology Review and Preparatory Material

An online grammar terminology review and general course intro is included with all 4-week TEFL courses. This has been something our trainees have requested. Grammar will still be reviewed in our course, in a standard classroom setting. However, an introductory refresh of grammar terminology, as well as an overview of the teaching process, will help with preparation for the course. There will also be a video review of EFL classroom methodology. The grammar and teaching methodology review will be emailed to all registered trainees 1 month before on-site training starts.

The standard fee for the complete TEFL Internship program is $ 1,295 USD. There are no early bird discounts for the TEFL Internship. Payment is made in two parts:

Course fees include all course instruction and materials. There are no extra charges for visa assistance, grammar instruction, course handouts, grammar textbook or any other course materials. Payment includes 15 nights resort accommodation during the induction period in Chiang Mai. The Paid Internship with Teacher Training also includes all course costs including study materials, reference books, testing and certification.
