I am so happy I took this course. It is very well-balanced incorporating key aspects needed to be an effective teacher. I feel much more prepared to walk into a classroom. Knowing that I have a relationship with SEETEFL from now on is comforting as I enter the field of teaching for the first time.
I am glad I did this course at SEE TEFL at my daughters’ suggestion and feel I have been well prepared for my new career.
Generally a fantastic course and overall experience. All the staff are so helpful and friendly.
–Mark B. (UK)
Thanks! You guys gave us a foundation to teach English. I feel like I could go into a classroom and teach English! One month ago I would not have felt the same. Fun and humor! Warm and friendly! Hard-work! Passionate! caring! You lot clearly care and that shines through.
I’ve really enjoyed the course overall and don’t think it would be possible to find another TEFL course that is as extensive in preparing people to teach abroad. I’ve found the course to be extremely well structured and all the staff are incredibly friendly and supportive. I strongly feel that SEETEFL actually cares about you. After you complete the course they will help you in any way they can in terms of finding employment or with work-related or general problems.
–Mark M. (UK)
Absolutely loved the program as a whole. I learned so much about not only teaching English as a language and Thai culture. An EXTREMELY positive experience. I have only good things to say – so thank you!
I was so happy doing this course. I’ve had a lot of fun and met amazing people. I’ve learned a lot and gained confidence in myself. It’s been a long time since I’ve done productive things in my life, and I’m so amazed I’ve done it here.
My experience with the trainers was incredible and I’m grateful that I received my certification from SEE TEFL. All the trainers are very knowledgeable, engaging and very forthcoming with personal help and assistance. I would like to highlight Kellie-Anne, who has legitimately been one of the best teachers I have had in my entire life. her encouragement and support in finding a job has been invaluable. She should probably get paid more :)

Maria (Russia), David (UK), Aleesha (Australia), Gabrielle (USA) and Caitlin (USA)
I enjoyed the course and learned a lot of practical advice about how to structure and teach a lesson. I feel that I learned more about effective teaching from this course than I did in my first year of teaching.
Teaching input is very well structured and was presented in a comprehensive way. The information was very practical & turned out extremely useful during the teaching practices. The Observed Teaching Practice feedback was super helpful and given in a very encouraging way. You really have the feeling that you are supported here.
1 – I appreciated John’s responsiveness during my application process. 2 – I appreciated Shouvik’s support, in particular, during the week of OTPs and the last weekend. 3 – I am grateful that observers made an effort to deliver feedback after OTPs with care.

Such a lovely course! Thanks for equipping me with all I need to fulfill my dreams. I think the way we were taught was so effective, creative and fully immersible. (teaching us how to teach students by teaching us in the same way). Thank you for one of the best experiences of my life.
Everyone here was very helpful in building our confidence to learn to teach. Everyone was very positive all the time. It was great to have a bit of Thai language + culture added to the course to break up the course to be more fun. Shouvik did a great job. he was very thorough and detailed which is what I needed. Kellie-Anne brought a different element as well, made it fun for the teaching practice. Thank you all.
SEE TEFL has been a wonderful experience! Kellie-Anne, Shouvik and John are all incredible instructors who make an extremely challenging + intensive course fun and enjoyable. The past 4 weeks have flown by quickly, but I feel fully prepared to enter into the world of EFL.
SEE TEFL is an amazing institution for EFL instruction. I loved it and highly recommend it to anyone! Thanks.
The program was absolutely exceptional! I feel that I gained a great amount of practical knowledge from the course. The staff was so helpful and the experience was once in a lifetime.
great course with really friendly, hardworking staff. One of the best things I have ever done.
The staff = Awesome. Everyone was so incredibly friendly and helpful that it made the transition/experience very easy. I had no idea what to expect from Thailand or the program, and this course just made me so happy with my decision.

I think overall SEE TEFL is an excellent institution to get a TEFL certificate in Thailand. I should praise our trainers too. Excellent teaching skills. besides that, friendly, helpful and encouraging teachers.
An excellent course that provided an individual with the skills and experiences of observed teaching practices to become a TEFL teacher.
Well presented and organized institution – friendly and extremely helpful staff at all times. Positive working environment, success for all.
WOW!!! There is so much to say, however, I’ll keep it very brief. 1st impression is so very important! it all started with an email inquiry – I got a response the next day. Every question and concern I had prior to making my deposit was answered with an immediate response. Then I arrived and from the moment I entered the classroom and met my trainers and classmates, I knew I had come to the right place. I cannot think of a single thing you need to improve. I thank you for standing by us from the beginning to the end. You made yourselves accessible to us from day one. My gratitude to the entire staff at SEE TEFL.
I was scared as a non native to not be on the ball. But, after 4 weeks, I can say, I’m ready and confident to teach English. The staff, our teachers Kellie-Anne and Shouvik are awesome – they did a really good job to teach us how to use the 3Ps, reassure us, prepare us, advise us at any time. Every school we went to teach were absolutely lovely and such a good experience to practice. We could have a first taste of the real life.
The cultural awareness day was a good experience as well. we could understand so much better Thai culture which is very important if you want to teach in Thailand. It’s a kind of respect. In addition, we could have some Thai lessons. It was very efficient. The time flew past. our group was like a family, very supportive. We helped each other, no competition. It was definitely a great experience. Thank you so much SEE TEFL.

Excellent course and enthusiastic, very patient and friendly teachers.
I’ve had a really great experience with SEE TEFL, and I would recommend the course to others.
I was pessimistic about how this would work out at first, but I feel completely prepared to go in to teach. I’m very happy with this course and would highly recommend it.
This has been an amazing experience, both because of the knowledge SEE TEFL provides and the talented personnel who share their wealth of knowledge with the class.
Great program/course, I think the staff and facilities are amazing. Instructors are supportive and helpful all of the time.
Loved the course throughout and am looking forward to putting everything you taught me into practice.

I was challenged during the course and have gained much needed confidence to teach EFL students. Great course and superb teachers/instructors.
The teaching staff were excellent and very patient with everyone in this class.
The SEE TEFL course superseded my expectation: professional, proficient, appropriate amount of guidance. Can only recommend SEE TEFL as all teaching staff are dedicated.
I have deeply appreciated the extra time I was given to help me be successful in this class. The heart of the instructors will provide a lifetime of learning examples to remember.

I have to say that after teaching for 6 years in China, I learned more about teaching in this 4 week course than anybody taught me in the past. This course is definitely the best thing I could have done to make myself a much better teacher.
I am extremely impressed with the SEE TEFL 4-week course. I have learned so much this past month and have made so many great friends. Although I volunteer taught before I came to Thailand, I now feel like a have a structured way of presenting lessons. All of the staff are incredibly knowledgable, kind, and helpful. The building is beautiful and super clean. Overall, I had the best experience here and am so sad to leave, but excited to see what the future holds.
This course is very good. You seem to have everything covered in a professional, friendly and caring way. The structure works very well and although it has been very challenging due to the preparation required, the outcome is wonderful. I’ve completed many courses in my mature years and can honestly say this is the best course I’ve attended. All the teachers are very good and all the Thai staff have been extremely friendly, helpful, patient and a delight to be around.
Amazing Experience. I can’t imagine being more satisfied with any other TEFL course. So many thanks to each instructor and the effort that you all put in.
I learned so much more than I expected and feel that I now have relevant tools to use in any teaching environment. I felt scared coming in as a non-native speaker, but never felt I was treated differently.
I now know what to do in the Thai classroom, from kindergarten to college. Thank you so much.
–Hyen Long (Vietnam)
Loved every moment of it. The school is beautiful and the staff are amazing. Thank you for everything.
Nice atmosphere to work in. The course is an efficient way to teach English as a foreign language. It’s also a well structured programme to build confidence in teaching through the six observed teaching practices. One of my friends recommended this course, and I’ll definitely do the same.
I have learned more than I thought possible in four weeks. Thank you for helping make the transition to teaching and living in Thailand so rewarding.
SEE TEFL became our second home. One month of hard work: 6 observed teaching practices with all age groups starting from kindergarten and primary school and finishing with adults, and one-to-one teaching practice. The course has gone very quickly and I feel now that I have chosen the right path for my future.
I enjoyed my time on this course. I learned skills I can use for the rest of my life, I’ve made friends, and I’ve definitely got a better understanding of the complexity of the English Language.
