"TEFL Heaven is a once in a lifetime opportunity to teach in a beautiful country of your choosing. You can make friends from all around the world and have the best time ever. The TEFL trainers will help you along the way and teach you all about the Thai culture to make sure you aren't given too much of a culture shock when you go to teach. Lastly, have fun!"

"Choosing to take the TEFL Heaven training course was one of the best decisions I could have made. Not only did we get to do our training on the beautiful island of Koh Chang and meet about 20 other awesome fellow teachers and now friends in Thailand, but TEFL Heaven did an excellent job placing us at fitting and awesome schools around Thailand for when we finished the training course. The training course was so useful, and the in-person training really helped us to practice our teaching skills before we even stepped in foot in the classroom. It helped me feel very confident when I finally did teach my first class. The training program helped to introduce me to friends that will now be lifelong friends. Having a bunch of new friends all around Thailand definitely helped me to feel a lot more comfortable when I was first getting my bearings, and now will be friends I will be eternally grateful for. The TEFL Heaven training course made me feel comfortable and confident in my firs experience teaching abroad, and has introduced me to a job and lifestyle that I may be very well be continuing for many years to come. After teaching in Thailand for about a year now, it's so comforting to know that TEFL Heaven will continue to be a useful resource for the duration or my time here and for any future teaching abroad endeavors. If you're thinking about teaching abroad, do it! You certainly won't regret it."

"I could not have chosen a better way to begin this incredible adventure, teaching in Thailand, than with the TEFL Heaven certification course. Being given the opportunity to live in a paradise island location while gaining the tools needed to teach in a new cultural environment was an overall positive and extremely beneficial experience. Taking on a new job in a new environment can be daunting, but TEFL Heaven made sure that we were comfortable, providing any tools necessary and made it an overall incredible experience. I highly recommend TEFL Heaven to anyone who wants to dive into a new culture and take on the task of teaching in a foreign country."

"I first heard of TEFL Heaven through a friend who heard about it from another friend. Getting a TEFL certificate on a beach in Thailand and then automatically getting a job handed to you sounded too good to be true. I knew I wanted to live abroad for a year so I decided to take a leap of faith and do it. TEFL Heaven helped me every step of the way. They answered my millions of questions through email and Skyped me when needed. Interviewing was an easy and quick process. They also helped with visas. About a week before I left America I was told what school I would be placed at. In Thailand they put us at a great resort on the beach with cute bungalows and we could see the ocean from our training classroom. It wasn't luxury but it was good. Our trainers were professional, supportive, and experienced. They were realistic about what to expect and had meetings with us about how we were feeling. After training I immediately moved to my Thai town. From there, my school helped me find an apartment and get settled. Moving to a new country and starting a new job is stressful but TEFL Heaven helped alleviate a lot of that stress and made me feel prepared."

"If you're thinking about teaching in Thailand, stop thinking and start doing. And do it with TEFL Heaven. They offer so much more than any online course can give you. If you're gonna take this leap then do it properly, set yourself up in the best way you can possibly afford so that once you get started you don't ever want it to end. I have zero regrets about coming to Thailand. It's a beautiful country, with an amazing culture, and teaching is a wonderful opportunity to grow as a person and make money abroad."

"I was on the Koh Chang program in April 2017. It was the best decision I've ever made. This course gave me confidence I never knew I needed. I was terrified at the thought of teaching children who couldn't understand me, but TEFL Heaven eased my concerns and helped me become a teacher I never thought I could be. But, the most helpful part of this course was definitely the Thai culture and language segments. I not only feel confident in teaching, but also in living in Thailand."

"Going to Thailand to complete my TEFL course was the first time I travelled abroad and it was the best thing I have ever done. I have learned so much all while having the time of my life. I received an amazing amount of support from my trainers as well as my fellow trainees throughout the course. I liked the course because it was very hands-on and it fully prepared me for teaching abroad. It didn't hurt that the training took place on a beautiful island that we were able to explore in our free time."

"TEFL Heaven was a magical experience. I inherited all the skills needed to become an incredible abroad teacher. The curriculum included content essential for becoming a valuable teacher. The course provided an environment that was communal and supportive. The trainees came from different backgrounds and for different reasons; though, were all learning to do the same thing- teach abroad. It was beautiful. It's been 1 month since beginning my teaching career in a small town near Bangkok, and I can truly say how thankful I am for the TEFL course. Thanks for the experience and I encourage others to take the step to become a teacher, and do it through this memorable program. Cheers."

"TEFL Heaven provides you with great benefits, was the most fun I've had on my entire trip in SE Asia, I felt 100% safe and I would recommend it in a heartbeat. Everything about this course was absolutely fantastic. If anybody is thinking about booking this course I would say stop thinking about it and just do it! Not only is it a great way to earn money and live in a beautiful, exotic country but it also enables you to make a life out here and make friends who you will consider your family. I was so anxious about starting the course as I had no previous experience but am now unbelievably a confident solo teacher at a primary school in Thailand- it's crazy. TEFL Heaven provided me with the confidence, skills and tools to be able to do this all on my own and I can't thank them enough for that. The classroom experience makes learning fun and enables you to get invaluable real-life feedback and practical experience which is VITAL if you want to be a successful teacher here. Everything about the course was fantastic and I wish I could turn back time so I can experience it all over again."

"Moving to a different country that I had never been to before, with a group of people I had only chatted to on Facebook was a very scary prospect. Yet TEFL Heaven worked hard to ensure that the experience was as easy and enjoyable as it could be. I've always wanted to live abroad, and this seemed like the perfect way to do it, and I was right! The three week course in stunning Koh Samui was everything I hoped for, and everything we needed to make us feel as comfortable as we could in our new jobs. While the nerves were still there, face to face the support and training we received prepared us well! I couldn't imagine coming out here any other way, or being here with anyone else other than my 'Samui Crewie'!"

"After a year of deciding if I was up to the challenge of teaching English abroad, I finally decided to take the plunge and it is the best decision I have ever made. In fact, I wish I had done it sooner! Everything about TEFL Heaven is what I was looking for when applying. They are friendly, approachable and most of all, they are organised! Not once did I feel left in the dark with the process. Moving abroad is a big life decision and having TEFL Heaven there to answer any questions I had was very important to me. Even once your training and placement starts, they are there to answer any questions or help in any way they can - from home sickness to how to get the correct visa! I trained on Koh Samui and couldn't imagine myself teaching without this experience. I had amazing tutors and an amazing group of people who were also training, that mixed with a beautiful island, it was simply amazing! I have now been in a teaching placement for a month and it's almost as if I was made for teaching English! Something I never saw myself doing in the UK! The school is great as are my fellow teachers, why didn't I do this sooner?! If you're thinking of choosing TEFL Heaven as your first step into teaching abroad, then don't think, just do!!!!"

"I have been teaching for two weeks and I have already seen the benefit of doing the TEFL HEAVEN course. The practical knowledge gained from training on Koh Chang is invaluable. Along with the practical knowledge, the 3 weeks in Koh Chang gave me time to become accustomed to weather, Thai food and Thai culture. I would whole heartily recommend TEFL HEAVEN to anybody interested in an opportunity teach abroad."

One thing I will never be able to replace in my life back in England is the Thai children. They are an absolute delight to teach. They make you want to go to school, they make you want to plan the best lessons you can and most of all they make you feel appreciated. TEFL Heaven and teaching in Thailand was fantastic and I would recommend this experience to anybody and everybody. Many of my Koh Chang course mates are still there teaching and they don't have any plans on returning anytime soon. A beautiful country with a fantastic way of life! Get yourself out there!!!"

I very much doubt that I would have been able to start teaching without the three week course and I am now confident with every lesson I go in to. If the idea of travelling and earning money at the same time appeals to you, I would fully recommend signing on to this program where you are guaranteed to make new friends and develop into a great teacher."

"Over all this course inspired me to go on to teach and travel more. It has shown me exactly what going for it really means. I got so much out of this course and I really hope that you do too. The staff are really supportive, but at some point you need to take charge of yourself and you will. You get as much or as little help as you need. Fun is in abundance and there is an activity for everyone. The beaches are stunning! I trained on Krabi and I hope to return there someday. My tutors were just fab and the support I received second to none. Just go for it, you won't look back.. 2 years on I now write for a small ESL publisher, I've taken my TRINITY and I've visited Japan for a taste of what teaching life will be like there, I'm now making plans to move to Spain in 1 year. Non of this I would have achieved on my own. This is a trust worth course with people who know what they are doing and know what you need to thrive in this industry especially in Thailand."

"I came on to the program as a 31 year old non drinker so I wasn't sure what to expect. I didn't know if I would be training with a group of uni graduates with different priorities. I was a little worried about what to expect. I could not have been more wrong. The social side was great and the teaching had its moments too. TEFL Heaven help you with the adjustment to moving to a new country and they take away the hassle so you can just enjoy the ride. The three week course leaves you with a solid foundation of how to teach and prepare for school. I currently work in a Thai university and still use many of the skill taught by TEFL. Its a must do."

"The best thing I have done with my life to date. The training was excellent. I had never taught before and was really quite nervous about getting up in front of a room full of people and delivering a lesson, but after my 3 week training I had the confidence to do just that! It is definitely a learn as you go kind of job, but the lesson structures, topics and teaching techniques that were taught to us out there really did help. The training was also a LOT of fun. I met the most amazing people and we had such a great time exploring our island together during training, and the rest of Thailand once we'd left too. I am so glad I opted to train while I was out there as the people I met on my course really did become like a family to me out there, it also helped to ease me in to Thai culture too!"

"3 months ago I returned from a year spent teaching in and around Bangkok - and I still miss it every day! TEFL Heaven gave me the perfect start to my Thai adventure. Rather than studying online or at home, you gain your 120 hour TEFL qualification over 3 weeks on a paradise island, and they guarantee you a job at the end of it. I felt this was definitely the best way to prepare for life as a teacher, as I gained so much confidence and knowledge from doing it face-to-face. It really helps to get some practical teaching experience and feedback before you start properly. There are a group of around 20 others out there with you, all in the same boat, so you get an instant network of friends. TEFL Heaven were really well organised and helped me so much with visas etc. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to teach in Thailand."

"Before deciding to take part in the TEFL Heaven course I was in 2 minds about it - do I stick to doing it online and save money..hmm...well THANK GOD I didn't! I had the time of my life in Krabi on the TEFL HEAVEN course, it was an unbelievable experience. What better way to prepare yourself for the life of a teacher in a foreign land, than actually training there and meeting amazing people?! The course not only allowed me to practice teaching in front of my fellow trainees as well as take part in an English camp, but I was able to get accustomed to life in Thailand. I just cannot imagine going from staring at a screen in the UK to standing in front of 50 kids in a school in Thailand. I was privileged to take part in this course, the trainers were also established teachers in the country and so they could help with any question you had about teaching or just about Thailand in general. The people I have met on the course also provide an immediate support network, we are all there for each other and I thank my lucky stars that I got to meet them. Thank you TEFL heaven, thank you to the brilliant trainers and the amazing trainees that I was so lucky to spend my time in the classroom with - you have made my time here absolutely wonderful."

TEFL Heaven were great from the start and showed lots of support and guidance from day 1. I am still in touch with them now and they are always willing to help me out. I was apprehensive before the the 3 week course because I was 31 and I was worried that I would feel too old however I really made friends for life during those 3 weeks. I am still in touch with most people on facebook, I went home at Christmas and met up with 5 of my TEFL heaven friends and I even live in Bangkok with one of the other people from the course. I have recommended TEFL heaven to friends from home one of which is also still teaching in Thailand a year later.

"If you are stuck on whether to do your TEFL program at home or to do it in your chosen country, I implore you to fly out and do it in the country. The TEFL Krabi Internship program was the perfect time to not only learn the skills I would need to teach successfully in Thailand, but gave me the perfect chance to get used to the country and make some great friends who have become my support system here. Having a problem? No worries, I know 30 other people in Thailand who are just a Facebook message away who are in the exact same situation! The course itself was interesting and a lot of fun, the trainers were teachers themselves so knew exactly how we would be feeling and what we wanted to know.

"If, like me, you don't feel brave enough to rock up in a foreign country with an online TEFL and look for a job independently, then the TEFL Heaven internships are definitely for you. Not only do you get to learn with experienced teachers, but you also get the opportunity to build a strong social network, so that you have a firm group of friends to share your Thai experience with. You gain practical experience, and on a paradise resort too. I found the Thai language and culture classes really helpful, and the trainers were always on hand to provide help and support. Even today, over a year after finishing my TEFL training, I know that I can contact TEFL Heaven with any questions and problems, and that they will be happy to help. I highly recommend this internship - I've had the time of my life. If you're having any doubts, I say go for it!"

"The TEFL training and my experience so far are lasting memories which are going to be difficult to forget. The training program had a great balance between work and enjoyment. Let’s face it the type of people who are attracted to these sort of programs are young students, weather having a break before entering university or a well deserved rest after recently completing your degree, also the occasional middle aged individual looking for a life change. Therefore through common interests all applicants have a desire to work to fund their travelling and have a great time exploring and making new friends. The TEFL program recognises this and plans accordingly accommodating for the best interests of the group as well as individual needs. This being said the program doesn’t neglect the needs of the school and the children, all applicants are trained to a good standard. The schools receive competent teachers and you yourself have the confidence and skills required to teach upon completion. Ask yourself “what do you desire” if the answer is to travel, have fun, make new friends, get a tan and party then TEFL Heaven is the right choice."

"Doing my TEFL course with these guys was the best decision I ever made. After trying an online course, I didn't feel quite prepared enough to go straight into teaching, so thought the internship would work better for me. What I didn't bank on was meeting 23 amazing, like-minded people who have since become some of my best friends! Being prepped to teach is one thing that TEFL heaven prepares you for really well, but having a network of mates who are all in the same boat has been invaluable. I chose to stay on another term and it just gets better and better. What you put into your experience you will get back. All our mates and trainees who left Thailand have since regretted it, so even if you find it scary and daunting, it will pay off and you might just have the time of your life (you definitely will)."

"Deciding to complete my course through TEFL Heaven in Krabi instead of an online course in England was the best decision I ever made. The staff were friendly and helpful and the Thai culture course really helped us all settle in to the lifestyle. The most I took away with me from this experience was the amount of true friends I made. It's a quality that makes all the difference when moving across the world to teach and it just wouldn't have been possible to do through an online course. Krabi is amazing and I highly recommend it! After teaching at home I felt it may be a difficult task to transfer previous teaching skills to teaching Thai children, but the trainers went above and beyond to help me achieve my goal!

"If you think about doing this, don't give it a second chance, just sign up! You'll regret absolutely nothing, everything is something to learn from. You gain so much independence and are given so many opportunities to share your knowledge. The TEFL Heaven Training program sets you up for such an amazing experience and it's hard to not fall in love with the beautiful country Thailand is. Don't be scared of teaching or the 50 students staring back at you in the classroom. You may feel like a freak at the start but you're far from it. Believe it or not, you're a hero in every students eyes. All I can say is, embrace every opportunity because it might only happen once."

"I would highly recommend TEFL Heaven to anyone interested in spending an extended period abroad. Well organised, experienced and supportive throughout the process. My 18 months in Thailand was incredible."

"I have absolutely no regrets in training with TEFL Heaven. I had an amazing time in Phuket meeting new people from all around the world. The teaching was spot on and that's credit to Steve, who's teaching method was perfect. He taught mainly based on experience and this was very helpful, I felt completely prepared for teaching on completion of the course. English camp gave us a good idea of what to expect too. One thing I would say is that there wasn't a great deal of teaching methods for Mathayom level, those teachers may have been a little concerned before starting but the agencies provide some training too. But overall, it was an amazing experience that I won't be forgetting. Credit to TEFL heaven."

"I highly recommend TEFL heaven for anyone looking to teach English abroad. The staff were fantastic throughout my whole stay in Thailand, not just for the initial training. The training itself was both very helpful and fun and the location was fantastic. I had a few issues regarding visa's and moving schools whilst teaching and even though I was at that point no longer under the tutelage of TEFL heaven, they offered me help and guidance whenever they could."

"This was a great experience, worth while and one of the best things I could have chosen to do after graduating. I came here with my boyfriend and we both have just graduated from drama school. Within a month of finishing the TEFL course with TEFL Heaven not only are we loving teaching but have set up a drama club within our school which has lead us to setting up a theatre company! We are in talks with our agency about offering English drama camps and are in contact with other theatre companies in Bangkok. Would we be this far ahead if we were still in the U.K? Probably not. Would we have been this far ahead if it wasn't for TEFL Heaven? Definitely not. It's a great opportunity and I would recommend anyone to grab it with both hands!"

"Overall, I can safely say my time and experience teaching in Thailand would be drastically different if I had taken an online course opposed to doing the hands on TEFL program in Thailand. Meeting the people, and having a support network after the course really did wonders when it came to moving to the other side of the World. The training staff were current English teachers so it gave the course practicality and \\\\\\\"how it truly is\\\\\\\" situations which can't be discussed otherwise. Two thumbs up for anyone looking to teach in this beautiful country!"

"Could not fault this course or recommend it highly enough! Have since heard a lot of dodgy things about other tefl packages, and I am so glad I picked this one, it seems to top all the others! Very fun, but such a realistic and good insight into teaching, and being taught by actual teachers themselves gives the information even more credibility. Would love to 're live it all again!"

"When things run smoothly it is easy to say a company is great. However, TEFL Heaven were great when things turned to TEFL Hell! nether the less they promptly corrected matters. The trainers were friendly and approachable and organised a trip off the island. The training was great and provided some great tools...IF you are teaching Prathom and not in the far South. Although only myself and 1 other were placed this far down and that was after issues with our respective agencies and TEFL Heaven re arranged placements and did inform me that life would be different. I am very happy that I was placed down here as it has been a unique and challenging experience to say they least but after sticking out the initial difficult 2 months I am in my 3rd semester at the same school. I have met some amazing people and have fantastic Thai friends and a new 'Mum and Dad'. Thankfully I am fairly good at Thai now but everyone in my town knows me and getting to see the students progress is amazing. Thai friends have taken me to some amazing places and secret local waterfalls hot springs etc. I am so grateful for TEFL Heaven for this life changing opportunity."

"I did my fair share of research before signing up to TEFL Heaven and there are the main three reasons I chose them over other companies that, on paper, offer pretty much the same thing... 1. I was quite skeptical that other companies we're not that fussed about who they recruited, so long as the person was willing and able to sign up and pay. My interview reassured me TEFL are quite selective about who they take on because their reputation depends on it more than the big operators - so to speak. 2. There's lots of planning and complicated stuff like VISAs you need to sort out, and TEFL Heaven were good at being specific about what I needed to know or do, and by when - which gave me more confidence there wasn't going to be some massive screw up and that I wasn't going to be on my own and guessing all the time. 3. Other companies I looked we're quite pushy about money and payments for the tuition fees (one even mentioned about a first installment before I'd even been interviewed). TEFL Heaven I thought were able to be flexible when I needed to be I genuinely appreciated that."

"The course was great, I really felt like the instructors wanted us to do well once we were placed. The material was good but even better were the outside resources that they gave us. I would have liked a bit more discussion on how to work with the kindergarten and high school kids, most of the practical revolved around primary instruction which was good, but for those of us who unded up with the youngest or very oldest could have used more discussion on their particular needs."

"This was an excellent course and provided me and the other trainees with skills that we can use in the classroom . At the beginning of the course I was apprehensive and would not have known what to do if you put me in front of 40 children who do not speak English as their first language. After the course I was so much more confident and felt ready and excited to enter the classroom! I gained confidence and some great ideas for lessons that I can use in my new job as a teacher."

"If you're debating in your head whether or not an experience like this is worth it. Stop debating and go for it. There is no harm in asking questions, looking through the application process, and even submitting your own application. Thailand is a beautiful country filled with the kindest people I've ever encountered. The food is delicious, and the surroundings are unlike anything I have ever seen. I haven't been here for long, but I already know how difficult it will be to one day leave. Good luck to anyone considering applying. Do your research and contact past trainees (including myself) if you have any further questions. All the best. - Jessica Goncalves"

"Absolutely the most amazing, fun, enjoyable course I've taken. I will be friends with these people for life, and we share a bond I share with no one else. I wish I could begin again, it was that amazing. The accommodation was beautiful and I could not have had a better experience. Thank you for everything TEFL Heaven! In the future, I would advise potential applicants to bring more money. I did have enough money for 6 weeks, but I was actually in Thailand for 9 weeks before receiving a job, which I have to wait another 4 to get paid. Also, I was not told of paying apartment fees (2 months rent up front!) as well as items such as sheets, a pillow and that sort of thing. Other than that, it was fantastic. Thank you for everything."

"Krabi TEFL heaven course was one of the greatest experiences I have ever undertaken. It was also invaluable in setting me up as a teacher. I would definitely say it benefited a lot more than an online Tefl course would as it gave you direct interaction with Thai children whilst also supporting you every step of the way. If you want a great time and become i great teacher i would go for this course!"

It really allows you to experience Thai culture first hand however still allow you to be a tourist at the weekends and travel to some of the most picturesque places in the world."

"When I first signed up to do this I didn't even really think about the training I was more concerned about the teaching. It would be possible to just do an online TEFL and go straight into a school, but if I had the opportunity to do the course again I most certainly would. It was such a good 3 weeks and I met some really great friends. It gave me the support and opportunity to immerse myself in learning and having a good time. I 100% recommend anyone doing this course. :)"
