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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
