A Day In the Life of an ITA TEFL Student in Krabi, Thailand

Krabi Thailand TEFL Class

International TEFL Academy is proud to offer a world-class 4-week Krabi TEFL Class located just a short walk from the picturesque Ao Nang Beach, in Krabi, Thailand. Employing a state-of-the-art curriculum and taught by expert university-level instructors, this course is designed to provide you with the skills & qualification you need to succeed in teaching English abroad. This course is fun and you will learn a ton, but it is also very demanding and requires that you be prepared to meet the full-time demands of a rigorous university-level course.  To help you prepare for this course, we've put together a typical day in the life schedule to outline the daily grind and commitment required. 

Tuesday – Week 1

8:00am: Wake up, shower, dress and then head down to the hotel's dinning area for a delicious Western and Asian food buffet breakfast. If you wake up earlier, there's time for a swim in the hotel's pool or even a walk down to the beach for an early-morning refreshing swim in the sea.

9:20am: Arrive at the training room and chat with other trainees about the previous evening eating in a beach-side restaurant or speculate on today's training inputs.

9:30am – 10:30am: A running start to today with a comparison of the Present Simple and Present Continuous verb tenses - "What do I do every morning?" and "What am I doing now?"

10:30am - 10:45am: Phew, time for a coffee break.

10:45am - 12:30pm: The trainer reviews the criteria for, and then models, effective language classrooms presentations. It's the first P of the 3Ps EFL teaching methodology. Trainees are given time to think of their topic for their presentation. Each trainee comes to the board and presents a topic they know well with regard to the criteria introduced earlier. The trainer gives feedback and the other trainees are also encouraged to offer comments.

12:30pm - 1:30pm: A buffet lunch with the other trainees in the hotel's dinning area. If time allows, a quick snooze, swim or walk before heading back to the training room.

1:30pm - 2:45pm: All trainees complete their short presentation.

2:45pm - 3:00pm: More caffeine!

3:00pm - 4:30pm: The trainer now discusses what a real grammar-lesson presentation looks like and discusses what other criteria need to be considered for presenting a Present Continuous lesson to describe actions happening now. The trainer then role-plays the presentation. Trainees are now aware that with good planning and adherence to the training criteria that effectively presenting a grammar point in under 12 minutes is possible. The first P is out of the way.

Evening - a swim in the sea, a walk along the beach and then a delicious sea-food meal listening to the sea and gazing at the stars.
