I was extremely happy with my choice of Vantage TEFL. I researched other sites online and spoke with English language teachers and I had very positive feedback about Vantage. They were not wrong as the course was excellent, taught by extremely knowledgeable and talented staff.

The TEFL course at Vantage combined the theory of teaching with actual practical teaching. We taught six lessons at a college and a high school. This practical training was excellent and the guidance from the staff at Vantage was first rate. We were well trained and prepared for our classes and the practical teaching has left me with a strong skill foundation to teach.

The staff at Vantage are extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and experts in their profession. The programme was intense and the staff were very helpful. They even assisted with my CV and applying for teaching positions. I was able to secure a full time position before I had completed the course. I would highly recommend Vantage to anyone interested in teaching.

Vantage run small classes to ensure highly individualized attention throughout the course. The Vantage training team has a wealth of experience and it shows! Their workshop style of presentation along with reasonable breaks throughout the lesson, makes it possible for learners to absorb a great deal of content without feeling any information overload. And there is a lot of material to go through.

Whatever is taught is aligned with a set of objectives to achieve in the practical teaching of the non-English speaking students.

From preparation of a professional lesson plan to teaching techniques coupled with the detailed feedback after every practice session, Vantage gave me the courage to stand in front of a class. And the knowledge to know what to do once my classes began.

Vantage has their own dedicated Jobs coach. He taught me how to develop a power resume and a highly effective cover letter. I was also coached on interviewing techniques the formulation of a personalized job search strategy and how to handle objections. Since I’m a proficient non-native speaker, I was coached on how to deal with the non-native English speaker objections.

All I can say, it was a lot of fun. I had a great time with my fellow trainees and I’m proud of my new training skills. I highly recommend Vantage’s TEFL course for anyone looking for skill set to be a professional teacher. Thank you Vantage

Vantage is a outstanding place to earn your TEFL certification! My extensive search for a reputable school in Thailand led me to a several places here in Bangkok, but after contacting and touring those facilities, only one stood out. When I walked into Vantage, I immediately recognized I was in a modern and professional learning and testing environment. Kevin greeted me right away and we chatted for some time about the program and everything it has to offer. I had many questions, and his answers convinced me that this was the school I was going to attend for my TEFL certificate.

The facilities are very modern and clean. You forget that you’re in Thailand. It feels like a school and testing center in California, where I’m from. There are a few classrooms and one testing room. The main classroom is what we used the entire time, and there are two classrooms that are specifically tailored for younger learners and small groups. The classroom has great A/C and is well-lit with a wall of windows looking out to the city.

The classes are taught mostly by Chris, who has been teaching English in Thailand for well over twenty years. He definitely knows his material, and he has a relaxed style of teaching that makes this intense course, jammed with knowledge and practice, seem easy and go by quickly. He teaches from experience and has a sense of humor that makes class enjoyable and educational. Ryan and Kevin also teach some classes, which are very informative with practical knowledge you’ll use immediately.

Vantage also will help you find a teaching job for life! Many local agencies and schools specifically ask for Vantage graduates. Definitely a perk that puts them in a league of their own as compared with other TEFL certification courses. All in all, the Vantage TEFL certification course is highly-rated and recommended, and prepares you to be a the best new English teacher with confidence your first day of teaching. Highly recommend!!

I was looking for a reliable TEFL course to hone my skills to become a more effective teacher. This course provided what I needed to know. It was intensive, and I improved a lot in terms of creating lesson plans and materials. I also learned new teaching techniques that will help me engage students in the lesson better.

The trainers were knowledgeable and went an extra mile to help me during the course. I highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to teach in Thailand.

Before I choose Vantage TEFL, I spent a lot of time researching various teacher training programs. It was going through reviews like this that led me to initially contact them and get an idea of what they were all about.

I would first like to note that if you are a non-native speaker as I am, don’t be afraid to take this course. Even though I had some doubts, the Vantage trainers helped me through every part of the course. They even showed my ways where being a non-native speaker could be advantageous.

Secondly, to tell the truth I didn’t expect the course to be so comprehensive. Vantage TEFL course is intensive, so for most of the month, you will need to be committed. Nonetheless it was always engaging, and often humorous, so the time flew by.

Our hands-on teacher practices were a key part of the course. We practice teaching to real Thai language students. The feedback I got from the trainers after each class was instrumental in developing the teaching skills I now have. I felt I grew after each practice session.

The course also did a great job in showing us how to ascertain student levels and then how to create successful lesson plans and then how to deliver them to a class. I had education degree before taking this class, but the communicative approach to language teaching that I learned here was eye-opening to me.

After the course, I started working with their Jobs Coach in developing my own Power Resume, cover letters and supporting documentation.

I was looking for a career in teaching. And I’m really glad I chose Vantage to help get me there!

My TEFL course at Vantage was an intensive program that incorporated both theory and practical lessons. I was given lots of resources inside and outside of the classroom.

My teacher was diligent, helpful and understading. He was extremely knowledgable and therefore able to answer all of my questions. I wouldn’t have had the same richness if I opted for the online course instead. I feel that I achieved a high-level of personal and professional accomplishment from completing the course.

Everyone in the Vantage team really does go the extra mile to ensure you have a successful start in your teaching career.

Overall, I am extremely pleased with the course. Vantage training has provided me with the foundations, skills and confidence to teach anywhere in the world.

It was a worthy investment. I would recommend Vantage as my first choice for anyone looking to gain a high-quality TEFL training experience and certfication.

Thank you!

I am so happy that I chose Vantage to complete my TEFL Certification. Vantage provides a top quality, rigorous and practical education with 6 hours of real teaching practice in real schools. They maintain high standards and good humor while guiding prospective teachers, skillfully and patiently, through a very challenging month. It’s not an easy program, but teaching is not an easy profession. Vantage gives each of us the opportunity to discover the skills we already have, but perhaps didn’t know.

Upon completion, I gained much more than a TEFL Certificate. I gained the confidence I will need to be successful as a teacher. To top it off, the Course Director lined me up with my first job, in a private school, before I even finished. They offer lifetime job-search assistance to all graduates. If you are serious about teaching English in Thailand, or need a TESOL/TEFL Certificate that can be used around the globe, I recommend that you enroll at Vantage.
