TEFL and Teaching English in Thailand

TEACHbeach TEFL is preparing you for success in the classrooms of Asia and the world. Your practical classroom time will be spent in a number of different settings teaching a number of different age groups. This is invaluable as it will give you the perfect insight in to the age group you aspire to teach once your course is completed. We will then be able to place you in a school in which we know you will be happy.

Thai students, on the whole, are very shy. Students who make mistakes in class in front of their classmates can lead to a great loss of face, so teachers need to be patient, understanding and culturally aware. TEACHbeach TEFL cultural training will prepare you thoroughly enabling you to walk in to any Thai school and fit right in.

An ability to speak Thai is not necessary, although attempts to communicate in Thai will be greatly appreciated by your school and your new Thai friends. Our Survival Thai-language instruction gives teachers the ability to request information and to hold short conversations. In addition, teachers are presented with a self-study language pack for further language development. By the way, although we encourage an English learning environment it is really useful for your new students to think you can speak Thai. Stops them gossiping about you!

Teachers are held in very high regard within Thai society and you are given special respect, however, please remember respect is earned and we are guests in their country so be respectful and treat people the way you would want to be treated. The rewards will come, you will see. – Apply Now


Jan Kapp – “TEACHbeach TEFL was an amazing experience and I would recommend it to any new teachers. Gary is absolutely the best thing around the college, and he has a lot of knowledge of his subject. He is also generous and helpful in all aspects of his job. He always delivers on time and will go the extra mile for his TEFL students and his staff. The course itself is a very powerful tool and can change the lives of many potential teachers, not only in Thailand but other countries too. It is well put together and easy to understand. Thank again to the Thai directors Madam Nuch and Poror Somchai, and last but not least Gary Cartwright for an awesome time in Prachuap Khiri Khan.”

Keegan Cremer – “The TEACHbeach course has opened my eyes to a new and exciting world of culture, colour and happiness. I felt welcome right from the start. An exciting but tiring drive to Prachuap was well worth it once awake to the beautiful town of Prachuap. The academy put simply is the perfect place for the course, clean, professional and the ideal place to learn with great staff and students. Gary is more than suited for tutoring the course, with his great personality traits and overall enthusiasm, manners and helpful nature. He never said no and was always willing to help out whenever it was needed. In addition, his assistance to us in teaching through his experience went above and beyond expectation.”

Claire Gentlemen – ” Dear Gary, thank you so much for all you have done for us. You have taught me so much, and I am grateful for all the knowledge that you have given me. You have made this experience so much fun, and I have enjoyed every moment.

Wentzel Pretorius – “Dear Gary, thank you for everything you have done for us all of us. Thank you for this great experience. We are all going to miss you teacher Gary.”

The King of Thailand

With the sad news of the King’s passing the country is in mourning for a period of 1 year until the 13th of October 2017. It is necessary and expected for all teachers to wear black or white clothing to school. Most schools are asking teachers to wear black every day so please be aware and prepared to follow suit. Clothes are not expensive in Thailand so it is possible for you to buy appropriate clothing after you have arrived. During the training course the dress code is smart casual and doesn’t have to be black or white but we will hand our black ribbons which can be pinned and worn on your shirt or t-shirt whilst at the training academy. However black clothes will have to be worn during the teaching practices. Your understanding and cooperation will be greatly appreciated.

Essential Info – Visa Information

We are constantly hearing different rumours about visa requirements for Thailand, changes in the rules, fines being issued and stories of teachers being refused entry at the border. Please do not worry about any of this we will make sure you have the right visa information.

Don’t listen to the overnight expert you meet at a local restaurant. Don’t listen to the guy who tries to tell you how difficult it is to get visas and work permits in Thailand.

We have been in the business for 10 years and have a thorough understanding of the requirements and processes required to secure all the correct documentation.

Now for the good news! Once you have decided to join the TEACHbeach TEFL course we will be able to give you all the support and advice you need to secure the right visa prior to you leaving home.

Visa Information

We generally advise our TEFL candidates to apply for a 60 day tourist visa prior to leaving home. This visa allows you a total of 90 days in the Kingdom because you can extend the visa locally by a further 30 days once the first 60 days has elapsed. This visa allows you the 30 days you will need to complete the TEACHbeach TEFL course, the remaining 60 days will allow you the time you need to relax and travel before starting your new job teaching English.

Once you are settled and you have extended your visa the school in which you are placed will produce the documents you need to secure the 90 day non immigrant business visa. This visa runs for 90 days and allows the time required to produce your work permit and 1 year teaching visa.
