What people say

“Easier than what I had planned for”

“I found out about teaching in Thailand from friends who had previously taken the TESOL course and were successful at it. I found the course easier than I had planned for; the course was broken into steps and once we'd learned one step and achieved from there on out it was very easy.”

“Very friendly, helpful and hospitable staff”

“The first day felt overwhelming and first but the staff made us feel welcome. You get very comfortable very quickly. Thai students are very clever and they really seem to love us being here in Thailand. We've made so many friends and met so many amazing people through the TESOL course.”

“A fun experience, not as scary as we thought!”

“We came together because it felt safer but we now see that we had nothing to worry about as it's very safe here and the people are so friendly. The course is intensive but you get used to it. Being a teacher seems like it's really easy but it is really not. It is exciting, though! Being in a foreign country and meeting new people is really great.”

“Very well structured and organised”

“We thought that it would be really easy to be a teacher, but there's a lot of technical stuff that you have to bare in mind. The course definitely helps with this side of things. It's also very well structured and organised as you work through the course modules. The kids on the field trips were adorable and the teachers we met were very friendly.”

“Everyone is passionate about teaching”

“I enjoyed going on the excursions and seeing just how great the childrens' desire to learn English really is. The course was challenging but it went very well. Everyone that I worked with was passionate about teaching and helping me to do my best.”

“Just what I wanted, just what I needed!”

“There was a lot of opportunity to practice the techniques that we learned in class when we went on the field trips. It was very productive to learn from the other people on the course. I learned lots from the course trainers who were very encouraging and very professional.”

“We were bored of our office jobs, now the rest is history!”

“Our favorite part of the course was the field trips: being able to go to schools during the course and get hands-on experience. Learning a chunk at the training centre and then being able to go out and implement it in a real teaching situation the next day was a lot of fun. The people in Thailand are super-friendly and the city is wonderful too.”

“The staff were fantastic!”

“The 4 weeks were intensive but always enjoyable and gave me the confidence to deliver effective lessons. The classroom exercises and field trips added to the education and enjoyment with many funny moments to remember. Not all work !!!

“Definitely helped me build confidence in the classroom”

“Being so young is this field can be quite scary. This course definitely helped me build confidence in the classroom. There were plenty of opportunities to practice and the trainers were very supportive throughout the entire month. I learned so many helpful skills that will be useful while teaching in a foreign country. Not only did I gain confidence and techniques, but also some wonderful friends.”

“Learning from the best”

“I’m very happy I chose Chichester College for my TESOL education. As an accredited UK College offering a certified college level course, they expect college level participation from their students. There is no “phoning it in” in this class. The instructors are some of the best I have ever had. Great lectures, always available, and truly caring for their students' success. Our excursions/field trips were very interesting and eye opening.”

“Prepares you to make the right mistakes.”

“Chichester's TESOL course is short, intense and completely essential. You cannot become a successful teacher without first making many mistakes, but Chichester's prepares you to make the right mistakes and to learn from them as well.”

“Life changing in every way”

“The course gave me opportunities to work in both Thailand and now also Vietnam. The course was excellent preparation. I have to say that it was very emotional leaving my students in Thailand. They were very special and I am so grateful that I had the chance to teach the kids and be part of the community.”

“A fantastic start for a career in ESL teaching!”

“Having come into the world of ESL without any prior teaching experience, I'm amazed at how much more prepared and confident I feel to take on my first teaching role after completing the Chichester TESOL course. The field trips are an excellent way to get a real view of what teaching in Thailand is like, culminating in the final trip which gives you the chance to consolidate and put into practice everything you've learnt over the previous 4 weeks.”

“The start of a new chapter”

“Our time studying the Chichester College TESOL in Bangkok could not have prepared us better for teaching abroad. As a couple not knowing what to expect, the hands on training and professional guidance we received, helped pave the road to a successful and rewarding teaching experience.”
