Why You Should Get Your TEFL with Text & Talk TEFL Academy Bangkok

Do you have the itch to move to Thailand? Do you want to escape the drab cubicles of the corporate world for a more adventurous life in the Land of Smiles?

Then you should consider teaching English in Thailand.

But before you jump in, there’s one thing you need to think about: a TEFL.

A TEFL certificate lets you teach English to non-native English speakers.

But not all TEFLs are the same. In fact, there are only two TEFL academies in Bangkok that are backed by Thailand’s Ministry of Education.

Before I tell you about the TEFL academy I recommend you join, let me tell you why having the right TEFL is so important.

When I came to Thailand I had a 100-hour online TEFL. I paid $400 for the course, only to find out it held absolutely no weight in Thailand. I was able to find teaching work, but the jobs were the lowest paying in Bangkok—no one else wanted them.

I knew I had to get a legit TEFL in order to thrive as a teacher in Bangkok. That’s when a friend of mine recommended a TEFL academy that would change the course of my life in Thailand.

What’s the name of the school, you ask?

Text & Talk TEFL Academy is one of Thailand’s first Ministry of Education accredited TEFL schools in Bangkok. But Text & Talk TEFL Academy is more than just a TEFL school. Here’s what else they offer:

  • 100% Guaranteed Job Placement*
  • Flexitime TEFL Course
  • Paid Research Volunteer Program for Non-degreed Applicants
  • Long-term Visas Assistance and Advice
  • Continued Education**
