Teacher Training Schools
Located in southern Thailand two hours from Bangkok, Pattaya is the country’s premier beach resort. A tropical climate, active nightlife, golden sand and friendly people attract millions of tourists a year to this city on the Gulf of Thailand. In recent years, new shopping malls, outlet stores, and jewelry stores have opened, increasing the influx of visitors. When you’re not in the TEFL classroom, you can spend your time exploring Pattaya’s shopping venues, golf courses, or water sports—and, of course, experiencing its famous nightlife.
Thailand’s thriving capital of Bangkok recently caught up with Singapore in economic output, and with the financial growth comes an increase in the demand for English language instructors in the city. The very low cost of living in Thailand allows TEFL teachers to live a comfortable lifestyle on a teacher’s salary.
While most locals' command of English is limited, you'll find them warm and anxious to help. Thais are among the most friendly and outgoing of all peoples; most are curious about foreigners, and that curiosity is tempered by their interest in Western culture and your efforts to live among them and teach their friends and families. (Our Teachers have noted that the intensity with which Thai students throw themselves into learning English is amazing.) Pattaya, Thailand's premier beach resort since the 1960s, anchors the 15 km of golden sand which stretches along the coast from Naklua Bay to Jomtien Beach - and is the site of our Training Center. Two hours south of Bangkok, Pattaya is warmed year-round by the sun setting over the Gulf of Thailand.
