Date posted:2006-08-14 | Writer: Berret Gardner | Email: [email protected]

Anuban Jangwat is a government primary school located in Nakhon Si

Thammarat. The school has a Mini-English Programme for pratom 1-4 (ages

6-10) that they will expand over the next two years to include pratom 5 &

6. We are currently looking for three teachers to begin in late October for

the new semester beginning November 1st. Class size is 33 and our

students learn a variety of subjects in English. We are looking for three teachers

to cover the following subjects. I have included the current hours to

give you an idea of the schedule:


1) Science (2 hours/week to each grade) and Reading (currently 1


2) The Arts-Art,Drama,etc.(2 hours/wk/grade), Health(1 hr/wk/grade), & PE

(1 hr/wk/grade)

3) Computers (1 hr/wk/grade) and English components-reading,

phonetics, etc(2 hrs/wk/grade)


You can expect to teach no more than 18 hours a week, and this does not

include your preparation time. The work schedule is Monday-Friday

7:30-4:30. Teachers are paid 30, 000 baht a month. Nakhon Si Thammarat is

a truly Thai town with little tourists where you can learn a lot about Thai

culture. There are waterfalls and mountains close by and great beaches

are easy to get away to on the weekends. We would love to hear from you if you

are interested or would like more information. Please feel free to contact

either teachers below by email. Thank you!

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.


In this unit, I learned about conditionals and reported speech. There are 5 conditionals I learned and each had it's own purpose. For example, the zero conditional is mainly for true facts in the present tense and the 2nd conditional is mainly used for hypothetical situations that are unlikely to be true in the present. In reported speech, I learned about 'backshifting' and time changes to reflect the indirect report.I really enjoyed this unit, it was amazing to learn the importance of lesson planning. This unit was extremely helpful for me, I liked the idea of the exercises given at the end of this unit, it was a great way for me to practice making a lesson plan for myself. Although I may need a little bit more experience, this unit has really helped me create new ideas for making a lesson plan for my students in the near future.
