Why is Phuket a great place to live?

EBC’s TEFL course Phuket Island staff all wish you a warm welcome.

Phuket Island is the best place to find TEFL jobs in Thailand.

Phuket Islandis a great mix of tropical paradise, sophistication, nightlife and fun. Located approximately 862 kilometres south of Bangkok, Phuket, Thailand’s largest island, is often called the ‘Pearl of the South’. Its limestone cliffs, white powdery beaches, tranquil broad bays and tropical in-land forests contribute to making it Thailand’s most popular island. It’s one of the most renowned diving regions in the world, enjoying a tropical climate with average water temperature of 24ºC (78º F) with an unmatched variety of aquatic life.

The southern beaches of the Island offer superb vistas and some of the most glorious sunsets in the world. Many of the best hotels and restaurants in Phuket and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world are located here.The southern coastline is blessed with magnificent mountains covered with lush jungle forest that stretch out to meet the azure blue sea and are framed with white powder sandy beaches and fringed with coral reefs.

The north part of the island is less developed and gets only a tiny fraction of the visitors to Phuket. The rugged beauty of the northern beaches can only be enhanced by the feeling of having them all to yourself.

Phuket is also a night clubber’s dream. There’s an amazing variety of nightlife venues to choose from. Phuket has a thriving night life and it’s one of the main attractions of the island. There are plenty of places to party including lively Thai style nightclubs with live bands, Western discos with dance music, small beach side bars, sedate pubs.

Will I get a job after I complete the course?

Based on our track record so far, YES you will.

Since we started way back in 2002, everyone who has taken the course and has wanted to stay and get a job teaching English in Phuket Island has done so. This is regardless of what passport the person holds. If you want to work straight away, our highly efficient job placement programme will have you interviewing and working within a few days of finishing the course.

“It should be understood that while you (EBC) cannot guarantee that everyone will be employed, it’s pretty much going to happen.”

Carrie Smith,
Cincinnati, Ohio, USA

We get your CV/Resume out to around hundreds of language schools in Phuket Island. We help you every step along the way and we guarantee that you will get job interviews. The only thing we cannot do is pass the job interview for you.

Phuket town is well located for teaching positions, with many schools, polytechnics and two universities. The TEFL course Phuket Thailand training centre is conveniently located in the centre of Phuket town, minutes walk from the bus terminal, shopping areas and old Phuket town. In this historically rich part of town you will find shrines, temples (Buddhist and Chinese), ornate and beautifully preserved ‘shophouses’, quaint cafes, tiny printing shops, impromptu private and public museums.

Phuket City is an exciting mix of old and new. The activity in Phuket City is nearly around-the-clock. In the early morning, monks can been seen walking through the streets on their daily alms round and the markets are busy with restaurant owners buying ingredients for the day’s meals. Non-stop bustle characterizes the daytime, and lasts well into the evening. Nights are reserved for enjoying good company, whether at a restaurant, a disco, a quiet bar, or a combination of all three. We hope that you are looking forward to your TEFL training in Phuket Thailand.
