Which CELTA course is the best to take in Thailand?

Posted by Travelguy76 on 5/6/2013 at 13:02

I've been doing my due diligence on CELTA courses in Thailand, but I wanted to see if anyone had a specific recommendation for one school or another. IH seems to be at the top of most lists, however, if I can't get in (due to lack of space), is there another school I should be looking to? Thanks!

Can't recommend any particular school but if you don't get any replies here you could try asking on the forum on this site.

You could also have a look at the teaching jobs advertised on if you're planning on working in Thailand afterwards. Better paid jobs quite often specify which Celta/Tefl course qualifications they accept... might be a pointer to what the best courses are!

Thanks! Much appreciated....the plan is to get a CELTA certification, and continue on teaching somewhere in thailand. I have a bachelors and masters degree, and I'd like to have the best options available when it comes to job hunting. I've seen some courses advertised that seem a little shady, so I thought it best to obtain the most respected certification I can.
