SEE TEFL Teacher Training Reviews
Top best TEFL training program
Submitted by o'brien - Antibes France | February 16, 2018
I took a TEFL course at SEE TEFL back in November / December 2009.
When I first contacted them, they were fast to answer my questions but also to help me to prepare my trip over by giving me all the necessary information about housing, visa...
When I got there, I knew straight away I had made the right choice. The school building and facilities were great and there was a very friendly atmosphere.
Also, because I love travelling, discovering new cultures, the Thai cultural awareness day and Thai lessons were a big bonus for me.
I couldn't hope for a better instructor than John, his explanations are very clear and instructions simple to follow. What I enjoyed the most were the observed teaching practices which gave me a lot of confidence to speak in front of 30 pupils or in public for a fact.
Over the years, I was able to compare our training experiences with my colleagues, I can definetely say that SEE TEFL is really in the top best.
I am currently teaching in France in language centre, preparing adults to the BULATS and TOEIC but John's way : fun and interactive, not the boring traditional way. I am so glad I chose SEE TEFL.

And remember, John is fat, that's a fact !!! lol
Amazing experience // superior TEFL certification program
Submitted by Grayson - California United States | November 11, 2017
SEE TEFL provided the most amazing and effective 120 hour onsite TEFL certification course. John Quinn, the director, and all of the teaching staff at SEE TEFL are incredibly passionate about their work and highly educated. The course was very professional and well organized. They always helped and supported each person individually throughout the four week course, making sure that everyone was fully prepared to teach anywhere in the world.
After learning and using their Presentation, Practice and Production methodology in observed teaching practice lessons, I feel completely confident to teach in any classroom setting. The six observed teaching practices were crucial for gaining valuable on site experience. SEE TEFL gave me the opportunity to teach within numerous types of classroom settings and environments.
Along with observed teaching practices, SEE TEFL focused on teaching in depth grammar lessons and the fundamentals of phonetics. Throughout the course we had numerous lessons on Thai language, which allowed an even deeper understanding of the culture within Thailand. They also organized a Thai cultural awareness day, which was an incredible way to learn about the history of Chiang Mai and the Lanna Kingdom.
I am so thankful and grateful for this wonderful four week TEFL certification course. Everyone working at SEE TEFL made their building feel like a second home and I appreciate everything they did for me during the course. I would highly recommend choosing SEE TEFL as the starting point for an international teaching career. They provide the perfect foundation for gaining knowledge and understanding on how to effectively teach English abroad.
A wonderful experience

I completed the TEFL Certification with John and Ying at SEE TEFL in October of 2016. I would highly recommend this Program located in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The course was run exceptionally well by two people who know Chiang Mai incredibly well.
Before I even began the course, John was helpful in answering all questions I had about the program. Once I signed up to take the course, John was even more helpful in providing Visa information, as well an education document that allowed me to get a longer Visa for my stay. They also provide a couple of great options for long term stays close to the School.
The whole staff and team at SEE TEFL made me feel like I was instantly part of a family. John, Ying, and the entire staff do a wonderful job of helping you acclimate to the culture of Thailand. They provide a Cultural Day, taking you through the city and to a Thai temple. It was a wonderful experience. They even include a few culture and language classes during the course. The whole class meets up the first week after class to bond and get acclimated to the city.
The course itself is very well run. The course is a 120 hour TEFL Certification with 6 Observed Teaching Practices. Our class consisted of 20 students. That is the maximum number of students allowed in the course per month. Our instructors were very intelligent and taught the proper classroom teaching systems. They also gave us good lessons on English Grammar and provided in-depth training on classroom management. They provided us with detailed instruction on the best teaching practices and also provided us with great resources on how to create the appropriate lesson plans. Throughout the entire process, the entire staff is accessible to help with lesson planning and any other issues that may come up. They truly look after you and want you to do well.
My favorite part of the Certification Process with SEE TEFL is the 6 observable teaching practices. SEE TEFL sets up 6 different schools for the teachers to come and give in class lessons. We get a good variety of age groups, from kindergarten all the way up to one on one lesson with young adults. These are all observed by the SEE staff and we received graded and detailed feedback as a group and then individually in smaller groups. This gave us great practice for going out and teaching. On the last day of class, they offer good guides for getting employment in Chiang Mai, including help with building a resume.
This was a wonderful experience. It was also one of the better-priced options I could find anywhere. Chiang Mai is also an amazing place to live! I decided to teach in Vietnam upon completion of the course and I felt confident and well trained beginning my job in Ha Noi. You will have no regrets with this wonderful program and the amazing humans working at SEE TEFL.
Really helpful & beneficial course
Submitted by Kaitlyn - Seoul South Korea | May 29, 2017
I took this course in April 2014. I was a little concerned about finding a job after, as that was past hiring season. However, I found a job mid-course! It was my first time teaching abroad, and this course really eased me into the idea of teaching and gave me the foundations to work my way up. I have now been teaching abroad for the past 3 years, and would recommend the course to anyone who wants to work on their skills or who is teaching for the first time. I met a great group of people in my SEE TEFL class, and am still friends with some of them to this day. We all went on to find jobs very easily after the program.
The instructors are very helpful and friendly, and a lot of work is given to help you find a job in Chiang Mai. The instructors know the area, and know how to approach schools and what to put on your resume. They give you plenty of in-class instruction time, and help you prepare and create lesson plans. The observations were a tad nerve-wracking at first, but it made my first day at my new job way less terrifying. Due to their helpful observations and feedback, I felt prepared in the classroom and knew what I was doing.
I am considering coming back to Chiang Mai in the future, and know that I have a solid network of former teachers to help me out! Chiang Mai is a great city to live in- and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to teach in Thailand and isn't sure where to live. Thanks SEE TEFL for everything! :)
Amazing TEFL certification program!
Submitted by Ashley - Oregon United States | May 11, 2017
I took this month-long TEFL course in Chiang Mai, Thailand in November 2015. This program was fantastic. Before I even got there, the director personally answered emails regarding any questions I had, sent me all the information I needed to get the Education Visa in Thailand, and made sure I felt absolutely comfortable with where I was going and how to get there. They also provide and organize accommodation options (thought I simply found my own hostel in Chiang Mai - very easy to do).
The program itself was amazing. The staff feels like a big, loving family towards each other, and invited us in to be a part of it. Not only did we sit in a small class learning about how to teach English (conducted in a very interesting, interactive way) but we also had Thai lessons in the afternoon to help us with the local culture. In the second half of the course, we actually went out and taught English lessons at different Thai schools while the teachers observed and graded us. This was incredibly helpful, as it gave us real-situation experiences and got us comfortable in front of an actual classroom. By the time I was done with this course, I felt confident that I had the classroom and lesson organization skills needed to teach not just an English class, but an EFFECTIVE and ENGAGING English class to a variety of levels.
If you are looking at getting a TEFL certification, I highly, highly recommend this program. The staff is amazing, the school was well organized, and I gained the knowledge and preparation I needed to be a great English teacher.
Thank you SEE TEFL for everything!
