Why should you do ETP?

Many people complete a Teacher Training Course but then spend a couple of months applying for a TEFL job in Thailand, going for interviews, getting paper work organized in trying to get a job. But once you have enrolled in the ETP program, all you have to do is plan for your trip, buy your ticket and the rest is our headache.


Why In-Class TEFL Course is Beneficial for Teachers?
Teaching and learning is as primal as human society and is also visible in the animal kingdom. However of late we have seen the popularity of online learning on the rise and even in some quarters there has been talk whether teachers are required at all or not? Well, what people are failing to realize is teachers or instructors will always be there only the tools that they use has changed from just aural input to printed material to digital inputs. But the teacher will always be required to transform that information to knowledge that learners will require. No computer or sophisticated technology can replace the emotional quotient that exists between a learner and the instructor. Therefore the learning which is beyond the text can only happen when there is a face to face contact. The wide variety of experiences, ideas, thoughts and opinions that are exchanged between teacher and learner and also between peers cannot be replicated by web learning. The immediate clarification of doubt or rich exchange of thoughts is only possible when people are learning in a group. Essential 21st century skills of collaboration, cooperation, problem solving are all fostered in a teaching learning environment. Classrooms are not places only to access content for cognitive development but to imbibe and enhance social, emotional, aesthetic and at times spiritual development. Although technological advancements has been the greatest in the last century but technology can never replicate the human mind, heart and soul which are touched and nurtured by teachers in the classroom.

I joined the program because of the price. All other course seemed so expensive; this course seemed like a great deal. Also the initial communication was consistent and clear. The job placement seemed promising too.


A great location to be not too loud yet lively enough to have things to do. Also a great neighborhood to be in.
