CELTA Chiang Mai
Thailand’s best TEFL or TESOL course!
Welcome to the International House Chiang Mai CELTA, yes in the ‘cultural capital of Thailand’, at the language school and teacher training centre that really is a bit special!
To complement the place of study, you need some luxury for your downtime and just down the road we feel we’ve certainly found it, Thai style. This delightful, private, and yes, it would be fair to say, gorgeous, spacious, traditional northern Thai accommodation with a lovely swimming pool just paces away in the lush garden. Yes, that’s right! A glorious swimming pool to unwind in and for those fitness enthusiasts to exercise in. In fact, there is also a small fitness room. The whole complex is designed to be unerringly traditionally Thai with that overwhelming sense of calm around that swimming pool all set against a dramatic backdrop of the tropical, mountainous, beauty that Chiang Mai is rightly famed for. Of course, if you wanted to feel super relaxed there’s always the sensuous spa and massage complex to lend a hand. After a hard day's training, whether it’s doing lengths of the pool, floating in the pool, lazing on a sunbed, unreeling in the spa, being kneaded in a traditional Thai massage, enjoying a poolside coffee, smoothie, or even something a little stronger in the bar, or catching up on world events on the satellite TV, the IH Chiang Mai Xtra package really is the most relaxing way to get your TEFL certification.
"I chose Chiang Mai because of the exotic location and included room and board."
"I chose Chiang Mai because of its quiet, serene atmosphere."
Every room is big enough to swing several cats in and, by the way, did we mention the pool?
On the outskirts of Chiang Mai, and convenient for the international airport, the surrounds are known globally as the 'culture-seeker’s Thai destination of choice'. Well regarded for its calming atmosphere and refreshing climate, this tranquil location really does give you that 'get away from it all' feel; just the tonic one would want when halfway through a CELTA course!
The Chiang Mai Xtra package: What's really different about this location is that not only do you get to train here, you get to stay here too! The private accommodation has the modern facilities you’d expect and also the exotic feel you'd want when staying in northern Thailand. Thai style. Charmingly decorated, each private, spacious, en-suite room is simply a joy to stay in. Now that’s relaxing!
The US $2,495 not only includes training and accommodation, it also includes full-board catering five days a week. Trainee teachers are thus able to take the opportunity to sample the delights of the local food (de-spiced for those that need it!) on a daily basis, delivered to their door - well, to the door of the dining room at least. And if you should get really desperate for a bit of home cooking at the weekend, then you will be glad to know that pizzas and other western favourites can really be delivered to your room by restaurants in the area. Alternatively, for those of you fully immersed in the Thai dining experience, you’ll be pleased to know the resort’s restaurant can take orders at weekends too!
Of course, you are not obliged to stay, you can do the regular course and travel in each day, but you might just end up getting a bit jealous of those that do.
