The package itself is advertised as an intensive four-week course. I highly recommend it to students who are willing to work hard and are eager to learn.

My expectations were consistently exceeded throughout the course in the best ways possible.

I cannot say enough about the instructors and staff. Their competence, kindness, and professionalism goes a long way when one is serious about succeeding in teaching English.

I would also recommend it to both non-native and native speakers alike. The grammar lessons by Chris were superb. As a native speaker from the USA my ability to speak English must have improved simply by listening to him instruct. You will also receive excellent lessons in grammar and important requisites concerning the craft of teaching.

There’s a lot to learn from the way Chris manages and instructs class time. He is patient and extremely knowledgeable.

My overall expression is five stars all the way.

My time at Vantage was excellent. I came in with close to zero formal or professional teaching experience and left with confidence, knowledge, resources, and connections.

The course itself is highly informative. I did not expect to learn as much as I did in such a short time. Despite the intensive schedule, we also managed to have a lot of fun. It may be hard to believe that discussions about grammar and pronunciation could be enjoyable, but I actually looked forward to the days when we talked about these topics.

The practice teaching lessons were invaluable. I would’ve liked some in-person practice, but giving the current state of things, online teaching may be the only option for awhile. Teaching via Zoom and other apps has its own set of complications, so I’m glad we got experience with a skill that employers will be looking for.

In addition to the course, we were given professional resources as well. This included CV assistance, interview skills, and job prospects. I actually had an interview before the course ended, which would’ve never happened if not for the Vantage staff.

I highly recommend going through Vantage. Can’t comment on any other TEFL providers, but all my needs and expectations were met or surpassed here.

Even though I found this course mostly by luck I could not be happier with taking it.

In 4 intense weeks we were taught the basics of being English teachers.

Chris is a great instructor who knows how to make even monotone grammar lessons enjoyable. And the real focus was on the practical lessons starting at the end of week 2. After learning about the ESA teaching method and discussing how to prepare for real lessons we taught a total of 6 English lessons to Thai nurses in training. Afterwards we would discuss what went well and what could be improved on. This is a great way to get real experience and accustomed to teaching.

But this course also provides help with resumes and can support you in finding a job after finishing the course. A huge help for foreigners who may have trouble finding a workplace. As well as Thai culture lessons to help avoid mishaps in and around the classroom later on.

All in all I am absolutely satisfied and would recommend this course to anyone thinking about teaching in Thailand. Also do not forget that this course is very intensive so do take your time and do not have any other big projects while finishing the course.

I chose Vantage based on the reviews and because they were one of the few schools offering in-person classes during this time and I wasn’t disappointed.

I wasn’t sure teaching would be a good career option because I already hold a degree in a different field and I thought I might not be good at classroom management but after the course, which was fun, educational and which inspired my creativity, I am sure I’ll have a great time teaching in the future.

As a non-native English speaker I feel prepared and more confident to be a teacher after finishing this 120-hour course.

I was motivated by the lead trainer and the owner of the school who are always ready to help and offer prolonged assistance, so I can’t recommend this school enough.

I was looking for a TEFL course provider. There were indeed many to choose from, but it was pretty easy to shortlist. Vantage had a course starting Monday at 9 am, and I found myself in the classroom, beginning a one-month In-Class course to train for my TEFL certification.

The course was quite interesting. We spent part of the course reviewing verb forms, nouns, adverbs, and extending our knowledge of English. However, we were also introduced to the ESA teaching methodology and we learned how to craft a professional lesson plan. The tutorials were always engaging; our trainer, Chris, would talk about each language point animatedly.

During week three, we started our demo lessons. The tutorials continued apace, but now we had to watch others delivering lessons and put together our lesson plans and give them. I got excellent feedback after every practice class. The course was also heavy on reflection, and I spent many evenings recording my thoughts on the activities throughout the day.

There were four tests, each with a passing grade of 75%, the portfolio I was writing in the evenings, and six observed teaching practice classes.

I highly recommend Vantage’s TEFL program to anyone looking for an advantage in learning how to be a successful teacher.

Throughout my TEFL course with Vantage, I have been taught how to be a Very good teacher. The course provides me with very useful strategies and tools to implement when teaching. The good thing is that the trainers of the course offer real-life teaching practices where I implement everything I learn. So, if you are interested in becoming a professional teacher, Vantage TEFL Certification is the right course for you. I would highly recommend Vantage.
