Chiang Mai University’s Teaching English as a Foreign Language Certificate Program (CMUTEFL) is Chiang Mai’s only 4-week university approved TEFL certification program. This course offers university standard instruction for those who are interested in learning how to teach English to non-native speakers of the language, whilst at the same time immersing themselves in the culture and customs of Thailand, providing a holistic and rewarding experience
CMUTEFL will be operated on the main campus at Chiang Mai University. The university campus provides the perfect setting for academic study and recreational activity. Language Institute Chiang Mai University will provide the setting for the CMUTEFL training at its multi-purpose language and training facility.
It could be that the area of teaching with the most employment prospects for graduating teachers is Young Learners Teaching, including Kindergarten. Knowing how to teach young learners and being able to demonstrate this to future employers gives graduates from the CMUTEFL program an advantage in the jobs market. For this reason the four week course has two “Teaching Young Learners” workshops, covering every aspect of the theory and practice of how young learners learn and effective classroom practice, including materials production.
Teaching English is a rewarding experience and an excellent way to explore the world. Students who graduate from CMUTEFL will have the opportunity to teach not only in Thailand but across the globe.
