All our students are given 1-day extra time to stay after the course.
The hotel in Bangkok is also located in close proximity to the restaurants, shopping malls, spa, coffee shops and cyber cafes. There are many places to visit in Bangkok and on weekends the teachers can venture in and around Bangkok.
During the teaching assignment, the teachers are provided with accommodation by the schools. The school in remote areas will not have accommodations up to western standards. Most of the accommodations do not have air conditioner. There are no kitchens in most of the Thai houses. All the accommodations need a deposit amount, which is usually refunded to the candidates after 1 or 2 months. If the school is unable to give the teachers accommodation, they will be given accommodation allowance instead.

Job Description

Our teachers are placed all over Thailand and the location or school where the teacher will be placed would depend on the school and placement vacancy. The teachers can get ESL teacher jobs in remote areas or near Bangkok.

The class is usually 40-60 minutes long. (depends on the school). The normal class size in a Thai school is about 45-50.

A teaching week is from Monday to Friday, usually from 8 am till 4.30 pm. (timings vary from school to school), Teachers will have to schedule and submit lessons plans on a monthly basis. Thai schools do not operate on Thai national holidays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Again, after my PPTTC, pursuing TESOL was an incredible experience. The course and its contents are just accurate and involves explicit learning. I would also love if the Institute makes unlimited access for their students to the videos related to their respective course. Overall a great experience and I will always be looking forward to learn something new from ACT and keep upgrading my knowledge.

My experience was really good in these 7 months. I got to know various teaching aspects how to deal with young learners and autism kids and learning Business English was quiet helpful to me. It has been a truly invaluable learning experience for me. I want you to know that I have learnt so much from all of your constructive input and guidance throughout each lesson of the course. You have helped me to understand where my strengths and weaker aspects lie, and what areas of my answering questions I need to pay attention to. Thank you for getting my assignments back to me as promptly as you have, and thank you for making this course so enjoyable.



Certificate in International TESOL Program


The TESOL English language certification course from the Asian College of Teachers was comprehensive and well structured. It has given me a very solid grounding in teaching English both online and at language schools.
