On our accreditation page we have evidence of our permission from the Thai Ministry of Education to run TEFL programs. This is a legal requirement in Thailand. Always check that any course in Thailand offering TEFL certification training can provide evidence that they are legally licensed to operate TEFL training programs.

We moved to our new purpose-built school in April, 2016 after 12 years at our old location. Take a tour of our school by watching the YouTube video below. You'll see who we are, what we do, how we do and where we do it.
