In operation since 2002 and having certified over 2,000 teachers, Via Lingua was bought out by TEFL Campus in February of 2014. Although operating under a new name, we remain committed to offering Phuket’s most comprehensive TESOL training course. The course curriculum and training staff remains the same, and our two full time trainers have a combined 17 years of experience working for both Via Lingua and TEFL Campus.
TEFL Campus works closely with International TEFL and TESOL Training (ITTT) to provide online TEFL and TESOL certificate courses. Our Combined course is offered in conjunction with ITTT and we also use ITTT to market our onsite course.
TEFL Campus’ two full-time trainers have a combined 15 years’ experience training ESL and EFL teachers. Their dedication to trainees and sense of professionalism have helped to keep overall trainee satisfaction ratings above a rating of 4.5/5.0.
The course also employs two part-time trainers. One trainer is the head of the English Department at Phuket’s most prestigious university; the other is a full-time primary school teacher at a local international school in Phuket Town.
TEFL Campus’ four trainers have over 25 years’ experience living in Thailand and SE Asia. Between their professional backgrounds, local knowledge and dedication to their jobs, we’re confident we have one of Thailand’s most competent and professional training staff.
