  • You get to see what it's like to live and teach in another country before fully committing to a career abroad

Why take a combined TEFL course in Shanghai, China?

If you're interested in teaching in China, the Shanghai combined course is a great option for you! Taking this course will create many opportunities for you in terms of networking, making friends abroad, and finding a great teaching job in China. The initial portion of the course is online, which gives you plenty of time to hold onto your current job just a little bit longer or tie up any loose ends before you go overseas. The second half of the course involves you flying to Shanghai, China to start the hands-on portion of the course.

This is a great option if you're unable to commit to any of our TEFL courses that require you to spend an entire month abroad. 

 

Why take a combined TEFL course in Phuket, Thailand?

If you've always wanted to travel to or live in Thailand, this course would be great for you! Once again, you'll spend the first half of the course working on online content from wherever you'd like. For the second half, you'll travel to Phuket, Thailand to get hands-on experience. If you want to spend your free time on the beach, then you're in the right place. If you don't care about the beach, you just want to travel through and teach in Thailand, then you're still in the right place!

No matter what you want to get out of it, the combined Phuket TEFL course is a great choice.
