TEFL in Koh Kong City | TEFL Cambodia | ITTT

Koh Kong City is the provincial capital of Koh Kong province in Cambodia. The town rests on the banks of the Kaoh Pao River and is about 10 kilometres from the border crossing with neighbouring Thailand. Until fairly recently it was easier to visit this province from Thailand than from the rest of Cambodia, a situation that has now changed thanks to a much improved road network.

Although the province is now easily accessible from the cities of Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville, its long isolation means that is one of the most unspoiled regions of Cambodia and the drive to Koh Kong City is an excellent way to take in fantastic views of the beautiful Cardamom Mountains. Minibuses and air-conditioned tourist buses connect Koh Kong City with the rest of the country and can be caught mainly in the mornings.

Koh Kong City is an excellent base from which to explore the wider region where you will find plenty of natural beauty to explore including waterfalls, rivers, islands, mountains and jungle. The Cardamom Mountains are clad in pristine jungle and contain numerous waterfalls that make an ideal cooling off stop after a day’s trekking. Activities such as mountain biking, hiking, kayaking are all popular and a trip to Koh Kong Island will give you the chance to experience some of the best beaches in Southeast Asia. Mainland Koh Kong’s coast is home to the largest mangrove forest in Asia and boat tours can be booked from the city. If you ever get bored of the beautiful surroundings, the area also has a zoo and casino to keep you entertained.

If you like to get out and explore on your own rather than relying on tours or buses to see the sights, then Koh Kong city has plenty of bicycles and motorbikes to rent. The city has a large number of restaurants and bars where you can refresh yourself and unwind at the end of the day. The riverfront is the perfect place for an evening stroll and really comes alive after 4 p.m. with plenty of vendors selling sugar cane juice, barbecued meat, beer and more.

  • What is the course schedule?


    Class time is generally 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with mid-morning and afternoon breaks and a lunch break. For approximately two weeks, you will be preparing to teach, learning all of the things you need to know in order to be successful in the classroom, with practice classroom teaching sessions. During the first 2 weeks you will go to an International school to observe the English teachers teaching in an actual classroom, times are between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. During the last 2 weeks, you will actually do practical teaching each day, and prepare your lesson materials.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?


    The students are school children as well as adults. The students range from beginners to intermediate. The experience gained in this way will benefit you tremendously. Taking your development step by step only helps you to gain more confidence and help to build your own style of teaching.

  • Who usually attends the course?


    Most of the participants are American, British, Canadian, Australian, or South African; as well we do accept non-native speakers of English who have a high proficiency in the language. The maximum class size in the Koh Kong location is 10. We keep this number low so that we can provide our trainees with the individualized attention they deserve.

  • Is there a dress code?


    During trainees’ lessons, casual attire is allowed. Cambodia can get rather hot so this means sandals, shorts, t-shirts and other loose-fitting clothing, cotton attire is best. During teacher practice and observation sessions, there are specific dress requirements that adhere to the local working culture and basic ideas of professionalism. You will need to dress in trousers/skirts and closed-toe shoes. Men need collared shirts, while women need to wear conservative tops that cover their shoulders. Men also need to shave or keep facial hair neatly trimmed. No visible tattoos or facial piercings are allowed while teaching local students. We ask that you be respectful and mindful of your peers and the cultural norms of Cambodia.

  • What should I bring for course studies?


    Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. We also encourage you to bring a laptop as we have Wi-Fi at the training center. We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.

  • What documents do I need for finding employment after the course?


    Of course, you need your passport. When you secure work you may be asked to provide notarized copies of your birth certificate, college/university degrees with transcripts along with a degree verification letter.

  • What’s the climate like? What kind of clothing will I need to bring?


    Most of the time, it is hot and humid. But, it can get cool during the winter months. It is not necessary to bring too many clothes with you as clothes are rather inexpensive and can be purchased locally. We recommend packing light for your initial training. A lightweight raincoat can come in handy.
