TEFL in Lopburi, Thailand

Date posted:2009-11-03 | Writer: Winitsuksa School | Email: [email protected]

Winitsuksa School is a private Buddhist School operated under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn. It is one of the largest secondary schools in Lopburi with almost 4,000 students.

The Bi-lingual department has been operating for 10 years and covers Matyom 1 to 3. All classrooms and offices are air conditioned. Teaching hours are 20 per week, with all Thai public holidays, April and October school holidays paid. All work permit and visa arrangements are arranged and paid for by the school. You have to arrange and pay for your own initial Non Immigrant B visa.

The vacancy is for a teacher of English but other subjects taught are health, computer science, physical education, social studies, home economics, science and mathematics. Any qualifications in those subjects would be an advantage.

The position is for native English speakers only. Minimum qualification is a Bachelor degree or equivalent. A TEFL certificate is a distinct advantage.

Salary is 30,000 baht per month (including 3000 accommodation allowance) for Bachelors degree and 35,000 (including accommodation allowance) for a Masters degree. A performance based annual bonus (without accommodation allowance) is available.

Lopburi is an historic city in Central Thailand 150 kms north of Bangkok. It is famous for its monkey population and Angkor Wat era temples. There are regular day tourists to these temples and the Palace of King Narai. Otherwise it is very much a Thai area where English is not commonly used. If you want to experience true Thailand this is a good place to do so.

Living and accommodation is very cheap. Good apartments cost about 3000 baht per month. Transport to Bangkok is available by rail, bus and minibus. The school is in the CBD and all banks and amenities are within walking distance. Teachers are permitted to leave the school when their teaching duties are finished for the day.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.

 

This unit was personally one of the most difficult. I was not really familiar with all the concepts that were analyzed in this unit, however was very helpful to understand why every word is pronunced in a certain way. Undestending each concept and their reason to be helps to provide a clearer learning. All techniques, concepts and advises are great tools to improve the teaching skills in terms of phonetics.In this unit I have been given a large amount of information on the basic guidelines to teach an array of different ages, backgrounds and abilities, this unit also creates a great foundation to work from and adds to teaching different groups or single students. It is also really informative when it comes to what to do and what not to do within a classroom environment with each particular group of students.
