Customer testimonials

I would recommend taking a TEFL course with Trade Wind to anyone. The course itself is really well organised and superbly run. As well as learning all the important TEFL related things you need to go out and teach, you also learn about Thai culture and some Thai language basics. As well as all that you'll have help with your CV and job applications. If that's not enough you're in a fabulous location too, with a beautiful beach right on your doorstep. Tom, who runs the course, and his wife Leslie are two of the loveliest people you'll ever meet, they really are the best, I can't think of anyone I'd rather have done my course with.

If anyone is looking to undertake a TEFL course, I would highly recommend to go with Trade Wind TEFL. Not only do you get to spend 3 weeks metres away from the beach in Thailand, you truly do get the best guidance and teaching to set you up as a TEFL teacher. The course is intense and you will have to work hard, but the payoff is absolutely worth it as I went into my TEFL job in Thailand feeling completely prepared. In addition, studying in Bang Tao allows you to become fully immersed in the Thai culture from day one as you are able to easily interact with the local community. Thank you, Tom, for being such a great teacher!
