TEFL International Gap Year Projects Gap Year Projects

As the number of people taking a gap year grows, so too does the number of people wanting more than time spent just drifting around the world. More and more gapers are looking for opportunities to deepen their awareness of other cultures and contribute to the quality of life in the communities they visit, rather than just pass by without any meaningful experience.

TEFL International partners with Cultural Extremes to combine training as Teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages and the opportunity to put your newly acquired skills to work helping others gain essential skills to improve the quality of their life.

Rural Thailand Projects

The Rural Thailand Project is sponsored by the Thai Ministry of Education in Rayong. Working with TEFL International and Cultural Extremes, this venture provides native-speakers of English with training for a recognised TESOL Certificate and then places them in small town schools in South Eastern Thailand.

This project provides you with a qualification that will enable you to teach worldwide and allows you to put newly acquired teaching skills immediately to work in small Thai communities where native English-speaking teachers could normally not be afforded.

The 21 week program includes:

  • 4 week TEFL International TESOL course in Ban Phe, Thailand
  • Thai language lessons
  • 4 month teaching placement
  • Placement salary of 15,000 baht per month
  • Airport pick-up
  • Accommodation
  • Internationally-recognized TEFL certificate

The 6 week program includes:

  • 1 week TEFL International PELT course in Pattaya, Thailand
  • Thai language lessons
  • Weekend excursion
  • 4 week teaching placement
  • Airport pick-up
  • Accommodation
  • Internationally-recognized PELT certificate

Arabic Cultural Immersion Project

Immerse yourself in the historic culture of the Middle East in the beautiful city of Alexandria, Egypt. Through the Arabic Cultural Immersion Project, Cultural Extremes offers you a unique opportunity to teach English and learn Arabic while learning about the rich and complex culture of the Middle East.

The 10 week program includes:

  • 4 week TEFL International TESOL course in Alexandria, Egypt
  • 90 hours of Arabic language lessons
  • Cultural Immersion Activities
  • 6 week teaching internship with TEFL International
  • Accommodation
  • Internationally-recognized TEFL certificate

Cultural Extremes was created from the desire to offer affordable intercultural experiences and volunteer abroad projects to people who want to change the way they're living and see the world in a new way. Their placements give participants opportunities to deepen their awareness of other cultures and contribute to the quality of life in other communities.
