I had been searching for a potential TEFL course in Bangkok for a while, and I was not disappointed by my choice to go with Vantage.

I completed the Combined Course, where I did all my coursework online, and my teaching practice in schools in Bangkok. The online course is very organized and well laid out. There are 20 units, and a test at the end of each unit. Each unit took me approximately 30-60 minutes to read through and digest, some a bit longer. There are videos that go along with each unit, and to watch those adds another 25-35 minutes per unit. The tests are not overly difficult, but you do need to understand the content well in order to do well on the tests. If you have not studied grammar since grade school, they may prove to be the more difficult units, but nothing that can’t be re-learned. After completing all the units, there is a summative essay (suggested topics are provided), requiring 500 – 1000 words.

The in-class teaching practice was easy to organize with Vantage. We decided on the dates, and the level/ages of the class was shared with me in order to prepare my lesson plans. I received almost immediate feedback and assistance on my lesson plans when I emailed them, and felt comfortable and ready to teach the class. After the teachings, I received thorough and valuable feedback from both the Vantage teachers.

I was placed immediately with a highly regarded school in Bangkok and am really enjoying it. Vantage will also share with you a lot of content on lesson planning, potential activities, tips and tricks, all that you can use in your future teaching career.

I highly recommend this TEFL course for anyone in the world (if you complete the online only course, you can complete your teaching practices through Zoom).

Through my own experience taking the in class TEFL course, which I have just successfully completed, I can highly recommend it.

Like others I went down the road of doing an on line course, I contemplated for weeks, having read reviews from both sides, but have no regrets taking the in class Vantage course. The course is intense at times but gives you a great insight into teaching, planning, methodology and classroom management.

The practical teaching is invaluable, I did 8 live practice teaching lessons from young children to older students, although hesitant and nervous at first, I found the whole experience enjoyable and have taken away invaluable knowledge to help me kick start on to a career path in teaching, i am also looking forward to teaching any age with great confidence.

I would highly recommend anyone considering to take an in class course to contact Vantage where there commitment and dedication to teach prospective teachers is first class.

Big thanks to Chris and Kevin for passing on your extensive knowledge and training.

While living in Thailand during the pandemic, I had to think about reinventing my future, as my career in the entertainment business had been pretty much wiped out over night.

After spending four or five months hanging around the beach – great fun, no regrets! – I knew the time had come to take more proactive steps to rebuilding a new career.

The single best move I made was to sign up for the Vantage ESL teaching course in Bangkok. It was a life-changing decision.

The four week long course of intensive training reigniting my brain again. Our instructor Chris is one of the finest English language teachers in Thailand with an uncompromising attention to detail.

The practical lessons also make this course so special. Theory and grammar is all very useful – indeed essential – but Vantage will also show you how to put it into practice and this is the key to success of the course. We gave real-life lessons in schools, to various ages and abilities, and it was there that our new-found skills really came alive.

Once the course finishes, Kevin will help you with any future career questions. His guidance in job searches, resume writing and interview techniques is of great value.

(His ‘Power Resume’ is a thing of beauty!)

This is a five star course which gave me a whole new lease of life and signing up it for it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

And in addition, I also made some great new friends….

I have recently finished my Vantage in class 120 hour TEFL course, and to put it simple if you want to become a GOOD teacher , this course with Chris and Kevin is without doubt an invaluable asset that I would highly recommend.

I’m a 54 year old Canadian ex pat now living in Thailand for 30 years. Due to Covid effecting my main business I needed means to another income and teaching English here seemed a realistic possibility , but having never taught and not knowing how to start I found Vantage and couldn’t have been more happy that I did.

In just one month , I learned from 2 professionals with a world of experience , what it takes and what is needed to become a “good” teacher. I gained confidence with each lesson I taught, and was guided and directed to be comfortable and confident each additional lesson.

I’ve been taught methodologies how to teach that makes it fun for both the student and teacher , that enable the student to be able to ultimately be using English to speak and converse.

The course ends but the help doesn’t . Chris and Kevin cater to what age, level, school, you might like to teach and guide you to several opportunities of interest.

I now have the confidence to apply and knowledge to know I can apply for and start a teaching job that appeals to me.

Big thanks to the team at Vantage, thankful I found your course and expertise in teaching English!!
