About our programme

Prepare yourself for 12 unforgettable weeks in the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh where you will be teaching English in Cambodia’s legendary capital city.

Have your heart stolen by the immense beauty of the country and its people – a country famed for its ancient underground cities, impressive temples and incredible cuisine.

The Khmer culture is one of Southeast Asia’s most captivating practices. Discover for yourself at the UNESCO world heritage site of the Angkor Wat temple in Siem Reap. And celebrate during Buddhist New Year in April.

Aside from earning a lifelong qualification and enhancing your teaching skills, you can explore a country bursting with colour, tradition, history and adventure. A 7-day orientation will open up this exciting new chapter in your life where you and other TEFL teachers will learn about Cambodia’s enthralling history, language and culture.

In between cooking classes and cycling through mesmerising Phnom Penh, you will have workshops and seminars on Cambodia’s education system and how to prepare yourself for 12 of the most rewarding weeks of your life. The teaching placement is primarily in the English schools of Phnom Penh. However, there are opportunities to teach business, healthcare and communications classes as well.

    Interview & Docs

    If your interview is successful, it’s time to provide all your documents, including: Degree, police record and copy of your valid passport.    

    Go to Cambodia

    Once you’ve been formally accepted, you’re ready to go! You’ll be informed to book your flight and, on arrival, taken to your orientation.    


    Cambodia is a country that is yet to be fully explored. The people and culture are profoundly unique to their neighbours. So with our free Khmer lessons, you can strike up new friendships and dive into Cambodia’s history and age-old civilisation. Not to mention your free Khmer cookery classes (did someone say nom banh chok?).

    Travelling is cheap in Cambodia, with a flight to places like Siem Reap costing only $25. But the experiences and memories you will come away with are priceless.


    With a US$200 monthly allowance, you’ll cover your basic living essentials. Bring some extra spending money to enjoy an exciting social life. The cost of living in Cambodia is exceptionally low-cost; your monthly allowance plus accommodation, utilities and use of a bicycle mean you’re set to have a fantastic Khmer experience.

    At the end of your internship, you may decide to teach English in Cambodia is for you and want to take on a more permanent teaching contract. Just like many of our interns have already done.

    If so, our Khmer team will be on hand to support you in finding a full-time teaching contract with salaries up to $1000 per month.


    Whether you are a first-time or seasoned teacher, our 120-hour Premier TEFL course will cover all areas of how to teach English in Cambodia.

    The teaching placement is primarily in the English schools of Phnom Penh. However, there are opportunities to teach business, healthcare and communications classes as well.

    Your working timetable will be approximately 35 hours per week, divided into classroom teaching, lesson planning and grading.

    Your teaching style will focus on conversational English with students of all ages, from kindergarten to mature working adults. And our TEFL course will equip you with the skills and knowledge to teach classes to complete beginners to highly fluent English speakers.

    On weekends, you can embrace the abundance of activities around you. Or you and your fellow TEFL teachers can embark on expeditions to explore the length and breadth of Cambodia.
