It’s where many TEFL teachers start their teach abroad experience … and you can too, let your journey begin at our training centre in Bangkok.

Bangkok, also known as Thailand’s ‘City of Angels’ is a place where you can marvel at the glories of the past, and delight in the golden opportunities of the present. Bangkok has wonderfully preserved its spectacular heritage attributes, which is evident from the soaring roofs and gleaming spires of the Grand Palace and the city’s many historic temples – Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Temple of Dawn, and other inspiring shrines. With more than 100 skyscrapers, Bangkok ranks 17th as the world’s tallest city and has approximately ten million inhabitants. Experience the ‘Bangkok buzz’, and you are hooked! There’s so much to see and do, you’ll never be bored.
