Phnom Penh - TEFL Course
With its history of war now an increasingly distant memory, Cambodia has become one of the must-visit destinations in Southeast Asia. Pristine beaches, ancient temples and exotic jungle, are just some of the compelling attractions of the country.
Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia, is a perfect location to study and apply TEFL skills. As the capitol, Phnom Penh is the political and commercial center of the country, and the city is home to over one million people. Once considered the most beautiful of all cities in French Indo-China, much of the city's colonial charm has survived the violent decades the country and its people have experienced since independence. Beautiful (if somewhat dilapidated) public buildings and private villas are a lovely part of the legacy left by the country's French rulers. Phnom Penh also offers travelers the Royal Palace, the Silver Pagoda and the excellent National Museum, plus a wide selection of hotels, restaurants, cafes and bars. Cambodia is the ‘sleeping giant’ of Southeast Asia with a booming economy and a ‘Welcome Mat’ for businesses and vocational training institutions. There is skyrocketing demand for English language skills and this translates into well-paid jobs teaching English for people with the right qualifications.
The Via Lingua TEFL program in Phnom Penh is delivered in collaboration with the Sovannaphumi School, owned and managed by the NTC Education Group. With more than 20,000 students from young learners through to adults and 25 campuses the length and breadth of Cambodia.
The neighborhood surrounding our training center is ‘classic Cambodia’ with residential dwellings dispersed among businesses of all shapes and sizes. Street food, decent restaurants, bars, coffee shops, laundry services and entertainment venues are all within walking distance. There is even a western-style shopping center close by for those who are missing some of the comforts of home. TUK TUKs can be found on every street corner in the event you need transport to venture outside the local area.
Our partnership with the Sovannaphumi School allows our TEFL students in Phnom Penh to complete their training in a fully-functioning school environment from day one of the study program. The practical component of the TESOL/TEFL course mostly takes place on the same site as the theoretical component and with your complimentary accommodation within a 5-minute stroll, what we offer in Phnom Penh is very much a ‘one stop shop‘.
There is no doubt that Phnom Penh and elsewhere in Cambodia is a new world, and you will quickly come to see why it is an amazing place to become TEFL certified and launch your career teaching English as a foreign language.
