Once you've completed all TESOL theory training it's important you have a chance to put practice into play and experience an EFL teaching environment before starting your full-time position.
To make sure you get the most out of this experience and ensure it relates specifically to teaching in Thailand we arrange for participants to complete 20 hours of classroom practicum with a YESasia Network School in northeast Thailand before starting full-time. In most cases practicums are completed at the same school in which you'll be placed and not only gives you an opportunity to fine tune your EFL teaching skills but also get to know the students you'll be spending so much time with. Teaching practicum includes;
Teaching Practice Teach assist and independent teaching
Mentoring Mentoring and feedback with a teacher at the school
Teaching Assessment Classroom assessment with a senior teacher at the school
Following completion of your teaching practicum and end assessment you'll be certified as an EFL Teacher and presented your Certificate in Teaching TESOL. For participants with no degree your Tourist Visa will then be changed to a Type 'O' Visa through registration with our Foundation in Bangkok. The cost to do this is included in your program fee.
