As a non-native English speaker. I was more than concerned about my prospects about getting a job as an English teacher. From the first class days, Vantage more than put me at ease.

The entire Vantage training team is highly qualified. Their professionalism was the key that turned my initial reluctance about teaching English into a blooming self-confidence. There’s a lot of material to cover in four weeks, but each class was so engaging, that they workload is enjoyable and manageable.

Where I really developed my teaching skills was through practice sessions followed by expert feedback. I had 7 hours of observed teaching to non-English speaking students. The feedback I got after each teaching session made a huge difference in knowing what to do and what to avoid. This real-time classroom experience was a huge ingredient in learning how to teach.

Vantage also have their own dedicated jobs coach. Not only do they show you how to build your own Power Resume and coach you on interview strategies and techniques, they link you into their network. I secure an interview the week before graduation through Vantage at a school very near my home.

I can definitely say that my experience at Vantage gave me all the necessary skills I needed to be a great teacher. If you looking to build a teaching career, these are your guys!

I have always had plans to work abroad and Thailand is one of those places. I have taught children in for almost five years but I feel there was a need to venture out and get out of my comfort zone because a comfort zone is definitely a place where you don’t grow. So, teaching is what I love and I admit that I still lack the skills of being a good teacher, but coming to Vantage and being here for four weeks had really given me the opportunity to grow and rediscover myself.

We had engaging class sessions, went through the course materials, prepared lesson plans for our teaching practice, taught at the nursing school and yes, indeed it was a whole lot of work and fun at the same time. Taking the TEFL Course really took me to a whole new level in the teaching line and I believe I was at the right place just at the right time.

What I enjoyed the most was the sessions me and my friends had with our lead trainer Chris. It was altogether a different classroom experience and not like the typical classroom that I used to be in. Here, it’s what you call an interactive classroom environment, you feel free to ask anything to clear your doubts without being shy of making silly mistakes. I learned a lot from Ryan, our Thai language teacher and also from Kevin, our Course Director who helped me with writing the ‘Power Resume’ and giving more tips on job interviews. If I were given the chance to join the class, I would still do it all over again because I’m sure it will continue to build my confidence twice over but I believe all good things must come to an end.

Vantage is a place that will be missed and I highly recommend anyone who would like to teach in Thailand or abroad to come to here because they will make you a good teacher. As it is rightly said, “A good teacher is one who has good students.”

Cheers and have fun teaching!

Weiwan.

Chris, Kevin and Ryan make an excellent TEFL Trainer team! This is one of the best courses I have ever taken in my life and HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! I found out about the program through iTTT and definitely do not regret taking it with Vantage Siam. I learned a lot from Chris and his depth of experience in the field of teaching and I believe that you will too! Everything that is done in class definitely prepares you for your first day of teaching to real life Thai students. Every step of the way, I felt I was duly prepared by instruction in class as well as tips from Chris and the rest of the team. There were a few moments of panic but nothing unexpected from never having taught before. All in all I had a really great time with my group of teachers and feel as if I have developed some new skills thanks to the team at Vantage. I am now ready to teach English!

I decided to take the TEFL Certificate Couse with Vantage to gain confidence and knowledge to become different from the others. The lead trainer at Vantage is one of the best teachers I have ever studied with in my life! He explains and answers every question in details. Don’t worry if you never have experience in teaching before, because this course was very well designed and covered very thing you need in the future to become a successful teacher in the classroom.

The teaching practicum was one of the highlights of this course, because everything you do was in a real place with a real situation. After the feedback I got after each practices was really interesting and very helpful in learning from this experience. Moreover, the self-evaluation made during the course allowed me to know my areas of improvement and what I could do better or differently for next class.

I highly recommend taking the TEFL certification course with Vantage to all those who wish to get an intensive and professional level TEFL training program. This course had a very positive impact on my career as an ESA teacher.”

Vantage’s lead trainer, Chris, is one of the best teachers I have ever had in my life! He goes into details, he explains and answers every question very accurately! That is amazing! Besides this, the course was very well designed and very varied (phonetics and phonology, methodology, grammar, management classroom, evaluation and testing, materials compilation, teaching techniques, and lesson plans) and it prepares you to be more hugely more confident and very successful in the classroom.

The teaching practicum was one of the highlights of the course because everything you do as a teacher is analysed. After the feedback I got after each of the six practices was really interesting and very helpful in learning from this experience. Moreover, the self-evaluation made during the course allowed me to know my areas of improvement and what I could do better or differently for next class.

I highly recommend taking the TEFL certification course with Vantage to all those who wish to get an intensive and professional level TEFL training program. This course had a very positive impact on my career as an ESA teacher.
