Our advancedTEFL course in Patong, Phuket takes four weeks and is a great investment for those looking to teach english as a foreign language. Most trainees decide to come a few days early or leave a little late to enjoy all that Phuket has to offer. Although Phuket is a tropical island, its also the biggest island in Thailand. Whether you’re travelling with friends or on a solo journey, it’s always a good idea to have a cell phone with you.
If you don’t plan on staying in Thailand to work as an ESL teacher after taking our TEFL course, buying a cheap mobile phone could be our best bet. Base model Nokia and Samsung phones can be had for under 600 Baht. Try looking on the top floor of Big C in Junceylon Shopping Center in Patong first. After, you can pick up a Thai SIM card at one of the small shops on the third floor in IT Island, and you can start making calls immediately.
