A World Called Bangkok
Bangkok is a vibrant, hectic and awe inspiring Asian metropolis with gleaming sky scrapers rising above the incense infused air of the local Buddhist temple. Traditional floating markets are a short trip from 21st Century shopping malls selling the latest fashions and technology. The city is also home to some of the top restaurants in the region if not the world and its street food is delicious, cheap and available almost everywhere.
The city is the gravitational centre of the country and attracts Thais from all over the kingdom with the promise of work as well as good schools and universities. As such, it is a great place to experience the unique cultures of the different parts of the country.
TEFL Course Bangkok
ITTT’s Bangkok TEFL training course takes place in a working English language school that teaches children in the afternoon and business professionals in the evening. The school is an authorized Cambridge English Test Centre and accommodates an exam centre for online computer-based assessment in addition to conducting onsite testing at our clients’ premises.
Our teacher trainers have years of experience teaching English as a foreign language and backgrounds in curriculum development, customized course creation and eLearning. They also have a strong background in teaching business English and creating specialized training courses to many of the country’s blue chip companies.
We also provide on-going job support for our graduates including job placement assistance, interview preparation and resume creation. We keep our class sizes small so that you can be sure you will receive the maximum individual attention you could require throughout your course.

In the area surrounding the school you will find all you need during the course with a supermarket and stationary supply store located within the same mall plus two pharmacies within a two minute walk. We are also close to the Major Cineplex cinema and The Avenue Ratchayothin, which has a number of fast food outlets as well as banks, IT stores and more.
