140-hour TEFL Certification Course Thailand

Our 140-hour TEFL certification course is truly the most comprehensive in the industry. It combines theoretical motivations of teaching and practical classroom aspects during onsite instruction and real-world training and observation to real learners of ESL. Our TEFL course is both immersive and hands-on, as we believe the best way to gain both knowledge and confidence as a teacher is through physical practice and observation. Then apply those lessons to real learners of ESL during our teaching practice and observations at real, local schools during the TEFL training.

Our TEFL certification course is geared to provide a solid idea of what to teach a potential student and how to teach and deliver that lesson in real-life situations. Unfortunately, most other teacher training courses tend to focus solely on what something is, such as a definition or idea but give very little instruction on how to teach it in real classroom settings to real students physically.  This is where Entrust TEFL is dramatically different than our competition and why we win so many educational awards for our teacher training.

If you would like to have both the needed knowledge and the earned confidence of teaching students in a real classroom, then the Entrust TEFL certification course is for you. Once you earn your TEFL Certificate with Entrust, you will be able to successfully plan to engage your students through guided, meaningful instruction that will ultimately provide your students with the greatest success.
