Private schools or ESL academies

Private, middle, and high schools are the best options for foreign teachers in Cambodia, as they are the most common and hire all-year-round. Private schools typically convene from 8am – 4pm, with a lunch break in between. Having a TEFL certificate or years of experience can have you earn a few hundreds more.

Do you prefer exploring during the day and working nights? A private ESL academy might be the option for you. Earn the same, but have the opportunity to work with a wider age group, ranging from kids, to adults.

    What course alumni have to say

    Thank you for your wonderful guidelines on how to teach children English. I learned a great deal about all of the important fundamentals. I feel very prepared to teach English to a variety of types of learners. I feel confident in being able to help others to progress in learning English as I have progressed in learning to teach English. I would recommend this program to anyone interested in being a good TEFL teacher in another country or in your own respective country for that matter. Thank you!


    The experience was unique because it was something I’d never done before and I wasn’t too sure what I was getting myself into! Therefore this was a good opportunity to learn something new and see if it was for me. 


    The course was very informative, inspiring and insightful. It stimulated my intellect and shaped my role as an educator. I now have knowledge about classroom management. I gained vast knowledge about learning theories and how to incorporate the elements from different theories into my lesson plan.
