  • Angkor Wat is the biggest religious complex in the world, the grounds of the temple ruins extend over an area of more than 500 acres – that’s about 50 times larger than the site of Machu Picchu!

  • Phnom Penh, the country’s capital, is where the majority of teaching jobs can be found. Here you’ll discover temples, markets, and buzzing back streets. This energetic city fuses Cambodian, Chinese, and French influences.

About our In-class TEFL/TESOL Accreditation Course in Siem Reap

Many TEFL/TESOL courses are not accredited and do not provide adequate preparation for teaching, while others are accredited but aren’t tailored to the actual country you’ll be teaching in.

That’s why we require completing our 140-hour in-class TEFL/TESOL in Siem Reap. It will give you the best possible preparation, both for the classroom and for a successful immersion into day-to-day life and culture and ensures that your students get the best education.

We find that too many TEFL/TESOL courses are generalised to every country and do not account for the significant differences that exist in terms of the cultural and professional environments that come with teaching in different countries.

The course is tailored specifically for those preparing to teach English in Cambodia offers both practical training and classroom sessions to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to teach English to non-native speakers.

The following areas/subjects are covered during your 4 weeks:

  • An introduction to South East Asian culture – to help your transition
    into the local classroom and community.

  • Teaching techniques – we provide you with models to teach beginners
    as well as advanced students, young learners and adults

  • Teaching the four skills of language: speaking, listening, reading and writing Planning a course for special purposes (such as for a business)

  • Grammar – brushing up yours as a teacher, and techniques to teach grammar

  • Phonics

  • Creating materials for lessons

  • Lesson planning

  • Suitable activities for the language classroom

  • Discipline in the classroom

These are observed by a trainer, and detailed and constructive feedback is given to you after each lesson, to help you improve for your next lesson, and your career to follow. (You will get an opportunity to teach both young learners and adults). Our qualified trainers will assist you with the lesson planning process. Read our blog on making the most of your observed lesson

  • Materials project: Here you will present the materials used for lessons, to the class.

What else do you need to budget for?

You’ll also need to budget for various other expenses, not payable to us or our partners, which allow you to legally teach abroad plus the cost of travel to your destination and insurance for your trip.


Cambodia is generally a cheap place to travel to, so you should be able to manage on a relatively low budget if necessary.

You will be spending at least 2 months in Bali before you receive your first paycheck from your school (if you do the in-class program) You will, therefore, need to budget enough money to see you through the first month during the TEFL course and your first month of teaching.

Of course, the amount of money you will need depends on your spending habits.

Our team will assist you with booking flights, finding the best insurance for you and advising you on all the documents costs involved.
