The August 22nd session of our advancedTEFL course started Monday at 10am. Seventeen trainees from various backgrounds have all come to Phuket to complete their English teaching certification at TEFLPlus. To keep class sizes small, they’ve been split into two groups which will run in parallel over the next four weeks.
After morning classes and orientation, everyone had a chance to get to know each other better at the Aspery Hotel for a buffet lunch. The trainees and the instructors enjoyed fried spring rolls, sweet and sour fish, tom yum shrimp, green chicken curry, stir fried vegetables, pad thai and chicken satay, complimented by a choice of beverage. After lunch, everyone made it back with full bellies, and it was back to work.
With the first day of instruction under their belts, there are just under four more weeks to go. We hope that our TEFL trainees enjoy their time at Patong Language School in Phuket, Thailand, and we wish them all the best of luck.
