Teaching Practice in Real Schools

Teaching practice and observation

Teaching practice in real schools, to real students of ESL during your TEFL training course is essential to build your confidence and hone your skills before you are placed in a school after graduation.

Teaching practice

Pro TEFL has over the years identified the need for teachers to practice their skills within real classrooms before heading out to their job placements. We have included a three day school practicum to fulfill this need. .

At the school practicum teachers are given the opportunity to transfer the skills learnt in the TEFL classroom directly into a real classroom. They are also able to engage with learners and gain an authentic feel for what teaching in Thailand really entails.

We focus on providing the teaching practicum to underprivileged schools in more rural areas around Chiang Mai and Krabi. Many of the schools have never had Native English Speaking teachers within their classrooms and the interaction is highly appreciated by the teachers and students alike.

At this stage of the TEFL course our soon to be qualified TEFL teachers are able to put every aspect of their training into practice. They are required to tackle real teaching tasks such as class scheduling, Lesson planning, Lesson sequencing, classroom management and delivery of high quality lessons. Although this might be one of the most challenging times throughout the program, teachers experience the practical aspects of teaching. This together with the theoretical knowledge from the TEFL classroom makes for effective training and preparation.

The proof is in the pudding. Pro TEFL teachers are among the most sought after in Thailand. We have carefully and continuously adapted our TEFL program in order to ensure that our teaching methods are always up to date and relevant. Teaching practice is essential to hone your skills and build your confidence before you hit your first classroom as a full fledged ESL teacher.

Upon the completion of the teaching practicum all teachers are awarded with a volunteer certificate by the school. It is something useful as well as a sentimental reminder of your first teaching experience.

English Camps

After a few tough days of intensive English lessons our teachers and students are able to engage in a fun and constructive English camp. This well-deserved treat encourages students to practice some of their newly acquired English skills. The camp is designed to enhance student involvement, fun and English production.

With so much to gain for both teachers and students alike English camps form an essential part of our program. As one of the most enjoyable elements of the program you are guaranteed to enjoy what English camps offer.

Why it’s good for teachers:

English camp is a popular way for TEFL teachers to make an additional income during the holidays or on weekends. Why not learn how to coordinate and conduct this camp yourself.

  • Learn the skill of coordinating and delivering an English Camp
