Vantage TEFL Certification—Two Options

Option 1: The In-Class Course

Vantage's 120-hour In-Class Course lasts four weeks and has six key areas of study.

You learn both teaching theory and how to facilitate your lessons through the communicative approach to language teaching—the international standard, which is being adopted by Thailand's Ministry of Education for Thai English teachers kingdom-wide.


We strongly believe in learning by doing. You will teach real students under observation for at least 6 hours in our practicum. 

Vantage was #1 worldwide as the Top TEFL Course in the Community Choice Awards    by We were a Winner again in 2022 in the Instruction and also in the    Job Assistance categories. 

Option 2: The Hybrid Combined Course

Our Hybrid Combined Course gives you the best of both worlds.

In Phase One, your online study of the coursebook—with full tutor support—will concentrate on teaching theory and best practices. 


Then in Phase Two, you will do observed teaching practices (OTPs)--the practicum where you’ll teach non-English speaking students in a real Thai classroom.

The practicum is where your course knowledge is transformed into the teaching skill set you'll need to be successful in the classroom.

Knowing Does Not Make You Skilled

The practicum—observed teaching practices—is where knowledge is transformed into teaching skills.


Skills are applied knowledge that can only be developed through practice. That’s why live practice teaching is essential—especially for new teachers. It's the heart and soul of a professional-class TEFL program.

Trainees teach non-English speaking students in a live classroom—a minimum of 6 class hours—each lesson on a different language topic.


You get valuable feedback from our experienced trainers after each session as your new teaching skillset begins to develop.
