Welcome to TEFLONTHEBEACH

TEFL on the beach was established in 2018 in Thailand by a group of teachers that started helping people from around the world realise their dream of living abroad.

This deemed to be very successful, as we were giving people information based on our own actual experiences, and people loved it. Yes, we were teachers, and yes we were learners in the process too.

We learnt everything we could about the processes, the rules, the do’s and don’ts, the countries, their attractions, and how to have fun while doing this while making a real difference.

After designing our own TEFL course, and becoming fully accredited, we arrived here, equipped to teach you, and equipped to place you in a great job, while adhering to all the legalities, and adding value by ensuring your safety, through our service that includes accommodation set up, transport acquisition, bank account set up and much more.

What is TEFL?

Our Courses

The same way we all arrived in Thailand because of different situations, we also all completed different TEFL courses from various great companies.

We all agreed though, that in the live classroom environment, we wished that we were taught what the other one knows, and vice versa. We therefore combined our knowledge, and wrote our courses to ensure that you are fully equipped when going to teach abroad.

All our courses are fully accredited by the Education CPD. Your certificate, along with each country’s legal requirements, will allow you to teach absolutely anywhere in the world.

Our business has evolved so much in two years, that we are now able to include a basic language course, and a culture programme as part of our package. These crash courses will definitely go a long way in ensuring you are able to adjust from west to east without too many hassles or surprises.

Meet our Team

Sameer Kootboodien

I completed a TEFL course and travelled to China in search of adventure. I worked in China for a short time, but found a much better opportunity in Thailand. After finding this opportunity I brought my family over to join me. I taught for a bit in Thailand and found that by partnering with other teachers, we were able to design our own fully accredited TEFL course. I made some international contacts and then travelled back to SA, to offer this product and jobs to others.

I studied to be a teacher and taught high school learners for a while. I found that it was not really for me. I then joined a large corporate company as a Trainer, and found that to be much more fulfilling. I have a passion for transferring knowledge and skills. Sam approached me to be a part of something we could call our own. Helping people make their TEFL dreams come true is a truly amazing feeling and one that gets me up in the morning.
