Fantastic combination of course and placement!

For how little you pay, you really get so much. The accommodation provided is nice and in a convenient location. The two excursions are so much fun, and all of the materials provided are great. The staff are kind and helpful, and it really is an unforgettable experience.

Good program undergoing some change

UniTEFL CM has nice facilities and a friendly staff. The primary trainer is very experienced and knows the intricate details of teaching. They need to improve their handling of teaching practice preparations -- some students weren't comfortable applying the theory in real Thai classrooms. A well-rounded, challenging program.

Great Program!

The staff is great, the course is very informative, the price is right, and the fact that we get to teach 6 classes during our course is beyond helpful. I felt extremely comfortable teaching after going through the UniTEFL GoTEFL program. I also met some wonderful friends and loved getting to live in Chiang Mai during the course. I would recommend the course to anyone looking for a great TEFL experience.

Don't hesitate, you have found your course!

There I was...searching the internet for a TEFL course in Chiang Mai...too much choice...every company trying to show off...except UNITEFL Thailand. Nice, clear website with all necessary information you need to know the different packages they offer. They respond to mails in a fast and efficient way, even during the weekend.
After all information, the choice was easy! I went for the total package (Premium): course, serviced room (close to the office), excursions during the weekends, job assistance (must have!!),... Real value for money!
The course itself fulfilled my high expectations. Next to the review of the English grammar, a lot of time is dedicated to the real teaching. They really show you how to teach and how to apply, using your own style. After every lesson (in total you teach in 7 different schools during that month), they give clear feedback how to improve. They really want you to do well, it is not the money at UNITEFL, they are proud of what they do, they want to be proud of their students too and that shows!
At the end of the month you need to pass an exam on English grammar before you get your certificate. You need to study if you want to pass!
Being a non-native speaker, I am very glad that I did this course, I felt strong enough to start teaching!
Thanks to their job assistance, I have found a real good teaching job in Bangkok, where I am still working after several months.

Excellent experience!

The UniTEFL course was a great life-changing experience. I was looking to do something different and to travel abroad. I fortunately came across this program and have absolutely no regrets doing it.

Having had no prior teaching experience, it can be a bit intimidating with the in-classroom practicums beginning the first week in, but I'm extremely grateful that they do it this way. You get to experience so much growth during the month and it's the perfect challenge. I love reflecting back on that first week and how scared I was, knowing how far I've come!

The only downside is that the one month flies by so quickly, that by the end, you'll be sad to see everyone go. I made some great friends and learned the joys (and challenges!) of teaching English in Thailand. I highly recommend the UniTEFL certificate program.

My dream became a reality with UniTEFL!

Recently graduating from university and not having a clue what to do I decided I wanted to travel and the best way to do that was to teach abroad. But when doing research I discovered so many obstacles; how can I afford this? Will I be okay travelling on my own? What if I don't make a good teacher? The list went on.
To begin with I didn't think I could afford to move to the other side of the world, especially with the cost of most of the TEFL courses. But then I stumbled upon UniTEFL and it seemed too good to be true. Well, it really wasn't! The TEFL course is subsidized upon the completion of two semesters. On top of that, they ensure work placement for everybody who passes the course.
Now for the scary thought of travelling alone! I'll never forget that moment of getting on the plane by myself and thinking 'wow, I'm really doing this!' It was scary but after arriving in Thailand things quickly became easier. The members of UniTEFL were there to pick me up from the airport with a big smile on their faces and to take me to the accommodation. I soon became close friends with the people on my course and settled in quickly.
The team members at UniTEFL really looked after all of us, we are like a family. The course was intense but it has to be. The structure of the course provides plenty of practice and guidance for becoming a great teacher. In addition, as a group we all helped and supported each other during those first scary times of being in control of a classroom.
I am now close to finishing my first semester teaching at my school in Mukdahan. It has, at times, been difficult and hard to adjust but that comes with any new job. I now feel confident to enter the classroom each day and have built amazing rapports with my students. On top of all that, I have remained close friends with the other students on my UniTEFL course and although we are in different areas of Thailand we have already met up again numerous times :). Together, we have explored many areas of Thailand and we have been here for only 4 months! I also still receive support from the members at UniTEFL and I know they will always be there for me.
I cannot fault UniTEFL. They made my dream a reality and I love them for that.
If this relates to you then my advice is to apply straight away. I can ensure you, you won't regret it! I really don't and I still can't believe how lucky I am to be living in an amazingly beautiful and interesting country with such a motivational and inspiring job to go with it.

Great start to your teaching and travel adventures

I decided to come to Thailand and obtain a Tefl so I could escape the rat race, travel and earn a living while doing so.
After researching many tefl providers I decided to go with UniTefl because they were the most professional and knowledgeable and had the best training and placement options. They were also a subsided program meaning the cost was cheaper than the competitors and offered more value for money and better training.
I was not disappointed, the training in Chiang Mia was second to none, the location, facilities, staff and accommodation were great.
The accommodation provided was clean and had everything you need and was a 5 min walk from the training center. The location in Chiang Mai was perfect for exploring the local markets, trying new foods and seeing the Thai culture.
The training center was modern with everything you need and the training provided was so valuable and useful, all of the information and skills were relevant. They allowed you to discover and develop your own teaching style and gave you great advice and tips for activities and lessons. The practical training was amazing and allowed you to actually put your skills into action in a real school with real Thai students.
The course also took us out on 2 tours which were amazing and allowed the group to bond and unwind after a week of studying and teaching. We visited temples, waterfalls and a buffalo farm and finally and elephant camp.
The Staff here are truly amazing and will become like family to you. You leave here happy and feeling prepared to teach and with a new group of friends and support network.

Teaching in Thailand

After completing Uni and not having much luck in the job market I decided that I would like to try teaching abroad. Now after an extensive internet search I decided that the Go-TEFL program was the way ahead for me. It offered training and a guaranteed placement. Let me tell you it delivered everything it promised, the course covered everything you will need to know in the class room as well as 7 teaching lessons in a Thai classroom which is invaluable. So much so that first day when you get to your school you are not concerned not knowing what to do in front of all those Thai students that will be yours for the semester. Great course, great people running it and overall a great learning experience.

Awesome experience and very professional

I have just graduated from the 120 hour TEFL course. The teachers were fantastic and always had time to help me. Being able to go to a variety of Thai schools and teach during the course was a great experience and very fun. I would recommend this course to anyone interesting in teacher in Thailand, or elsewhere. A great experience.

UniTEFL was an Excellent Choice

I have recently completed the 120 hour TEFL International qualification through UniTEFL.
In regard to people-focus, professional approach, resources and emphasis on the practical ability to teach students, UniTEFL International is first class.
This one month course has enhanced my career options as well as having been a great life experience.
This course is accessible to everyone.
The instructors are patient while giving very good feedback - sensitively delivered.
The course increases one's skill base in a number of ways including public speaking aptitude and how to engage an audience in general.
Your money will not have been ill-spent. I believe that the TEFL qualification adds value to whatever you may choose to do and has so many career pathway options.
My best wishes to UniTEFL's future flourishing!
I would recommend this establishment as a first choice to anyone.

Superb (unitefl)

Overall I’d say my life in Thailand has been absolutely amazing, I’ve made so many new friends from all over the world. I first came to Thailand in March 2015, doing my UniTEFL teaching certificate. I’d never been to South Asia before and I’d never taught before so I was getting great training from unitefl and it’s definitely been worth while and it’s been an adventure.I would recommend anyone to come through UniTEFL, especially if it’s your first time. If you’re a bit scared there are great support networks, a very good safety net and you make loads of great friends through it as well.Raphael.

very professional course

very professional course, also focusing on local Thai habits, to be fully equipped to teach in Thailand; if you choose their accommodation, make sure you ask beforehand the details deposit and checking out date, as this information is not being given when you sign up

120 Hours UniTefl course

I became aware of this UniTefl course from some friends who had a positive experience theirselves, and they were absolutely right!
Pete, the teacher, is simply brilliant. All the team is competent, enthusiast and really available for any request. The course has been very useful and they've been able to provide me (and I think all of us) a certain confidence in teaching.
Moreover, I've been lucky in meeting funny and motivated classmates.
One of the best experiences in my life!

Superb service

I did this course in March 2015, the team picked me up at the airport, the accommodation was great (nice pool!), and the training was first rate, and now I have a job in Thailand thanks to UniTEFL. Couldn't be happier, everything went smoothly, and I'm confident with this TEFL International certificate, since it's recognised all over the world apparently. Chiang Mai is an awesome place to do your TEFL, on the weekends we were taken on a tour of the sights and visited an elephant camp.

Challenging

I think it's really very good. I'd recommend it for people who really want to have a beautiful teaching experience. Up for challenge, that says a little bit, and who want to live here in Thailand, or in Asia in general. But specially here in Thailand.

A little tiring but very interesting

Until now, even though I''m just in the beginning of week two I think it's very good. I'm learning over the time. It's very interesting. It's a little bit tiring because it's a lot of work, which is good. Because if you work hard you get a good sense of experience. I'm very pleased. The teachers I think are very good. They're willing to help.

Astounded

I am astounded to think how people could begin an English teaching career without the foundation skills provided at UniTEFL Chiang Mai. The knowledge and insight the trainers bring over the four weeks is invaluable and prepares you completely for the ESL world. I simply can not recommend the UniTEFL Chiang Mai course more. Thank you Pete, Susan, Judy, Yo and the team!

I found that the people around me, the teachers, staff, etc., were very passionate not only their jobs and ESL, but in training new teachers as well as they could. The knowledge is fantastic and the balance of fun and stern learning was perfect.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here, I'd do it all over again.

Made me feel ready and confident

Teaching ESL has always seemed like a daunting task. After taking this course, I feel ready and confident enough to begin a career as an ESL teacher.

The teaching practicums and trainer feedback helped me develop an idea of how I will plan lessons and teach future classes.

All the course trainers were incredibly knowledgeable and each had different teaching styles to learn from. They were not only helpful with the TEFL course, they offered advice on the getting adjusted to the city and any other questions the trainees had living and teaching in Thailand.

This was a superb learning experience! The course was professionally delivered by experts. It was demanding and challenging but also immensely enjoyable. I come half-way across the world to learn how to teach properly in a Thai classroom and feel strongly that I am now well prepared and confident as a result of the UniTEFL experience.

The course is really challenging and demanding respect to teachers in all aspects. Learnt a lot from the whole month not just teaching but myself as a person.

Met some amazing new friends.

It's great that you (TEFL) help schools that are underprivileged.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course

It was more challenging and professional than I imagined it would be. As a result I am more confident and comfortable taking a lesson than I ever imagined I would be, especially after only 1 month. Sometimes I felt pushed with regards to time available for lesson plans, but that is realistic to the teaching profession.
