The course and training was OK, Sean the instructor was certainly experienced, our group was quite small and quiet, overall cannot fault the training but this was the cheapest full time TEFL available in Chiang Mai and I regret that, since the management were not so helpful with the extra things, a place to stay, finding a job afterwards. My biggest disappointment was that I thought being a university the course would somehow be more regarded than others but that isnt the case, in fact it seemed to have very little to do with the university other than using a name on the certificate and campus location. It made no difference to my employability, just another TEFL cert, fine if all you want to is teach in Thailand.

I found about about CMUTEFL through a friend who completed the course last year. As the only university accredited TEFL program in Thailand, i thought the reputation of the university would help me secure a good teaching position after completion. The trainers were of the highest quality. They had a wealth of knowledge and experience from working in different countries around the world. One had even taught at a university in the UK for over 12 years. The best aspect about the course was the teaching practice with Thai students on the university campus. Teaching practice was arrange through a specially designed program called Activating Skills in English. The course was intensive, Monday through Friday approximately 8 hours per day, i was like a full time job, but was well worth it. Competitively priced against other TEFL programs plus its university accreditation made this an easy choice for me to choose. Wonderful facilities and the university life made this a true Thai immersion. Thank you CMUTEFL, I will definitely recommend your program in the future.
