SEE TEFL Gap Years

Travelling with SEE TEFL on your Gap Year

SEE TEFL is a Thai Ministry of Education licensed school which offers a 120-hour onsite TEFL certification program and a 4-5 month paid internship with TEFL training and certification. Our programs provide effective practical classroom skills, language awareness and cultural awareness training for new EFL teachers. In addition, our graduates receive lifetime job and visa support. Practical skills development includes face-to-face training and 6 1-hour observed teaching practices at local schools. It's also important to understand the terminology and structures of the language that you will teach. Training gives you this insight and the ability to teach quite complex areas of language. Thailand's culture is very different to our own. It's important to have insight into how and why Thais see the world. Without an understanding of this, life can become frustrating.

Why are SEE TEFL so good to travel with?

Chiang Mai has become one of the most popular destinations for TEFL teachers. There are 6 universities, 8 colleges, 30+ private schools, 25+ government schools and numerous language schools. Since 2004 we have developed relationships with most and now have contracts to provide 70+ EFL teachers to 20+ educational institutes in and around Chiang Mai. But Chiang Mai is not just famous for TEFL teaching, it's also one of the most picturesque cities in SE Asian. It snugly fits into a valley that follows the Maeping River and is nestled between the jungle-topped mountains surrounding the valley. There is literally a Buddhist temple on every street. This all adds up to offers an eclectic mix of nature and culture. Although Chiang Mai is a fantastic place to complete TEFL training, it's also closely connected to the TEFL industry of the rest of the country. Many of our graduates move to Bangkok, a provincial town or a beach. Some also move on to other Asian countries and even Europe, S. America, the Middle East and Africa. There are SEE graduates teaching now across the world.
