See where a TEFL course can take you!


Recent TEFL UK graduate Katie shares her experience of taking a TEFL course and teaching English in Thailand.

A TEFL course is well worth considering if you want to learn the skills and information needed to teach abroad and qualify for international and online teaching jobs. A TEFL certificate will prepare you to teach English language skills, increase or refresh your knowledge of English grammar, and design courses / curriculum for students.

Katie used TEFL UK's complimentary graduate employment service to find a teaching job in Thailand after completing her TEFL course. In this video, Katie discusses why she chose to teach English in Thailand and how taking a TEFL course helped prepare her for classroom life.

Katie lists core skills for teaching English successfully as communication, listening, collaboration, adaptation, empathy, and of course patience!

In addition to these skills, an engaging classroom presence and a love of learning and new cultures are also vital attributes for a TEFL teacher.

If you are interested in learning TEFL and teaching English overseas, we hope you will find Katie's short video helpful and inspirational!
