DELTA Bangkok

Take the most advanced TEFL course in the world in Asia's most cosmopolitan city

STUDY IN BANGKOK

Your DELTA journey starts here

Vibrant, colourful, loud, smoky, bustling, exciting, turbo-charged, and conversely, often peaceful… Bangkok is a city that never gets boring and always gives you something exciting to see and do.

Discover Bangkok

Packed with temples, historical sites, bustling markets and street food stalls, Bangkok attracts almost 40 million tourists each year.

The international airport has flight connections to over 50 countries, and this makes Bangkok one of the easiest cities in South-east Asia to travel to.

Bangkok is a modern city with an efficient metro system, high-end malls, art galleries, trendy bars, restaurants and nightclubs, and it’s just a couple of hours away from national parks, beautiful beaches and rural landscapes.

With so much to offer, and with its relatively low-cost standard of living, it’s no wonder many choose Bangkok as the perfect place to take a DELTA course and experience Thai culture.

DELTA (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is an advanced teaching qualification that blends theory and practice to help you develop a deeper understanding of effective principles and practices in English language teaching. It’s the ideal TEFL/TESOL course if you already have at least one years’ teaching experience and feel ready for a professional specialization or career advancement. The certificate is awarded by Cambridge English, which is part of the University of Cambridge, and it’s recognised by private organisations and public institutions worldwide.ely taken English teaching qualifications in the world. It can provide you with the skills, knowledge and hands‑on practice to follow a rewarding career in teaching, either at home or abroad. The certificate is awarded by Cambridge English, which is part of the University of Cambridge, and it’s recognised by private organisations and public institutions worldwide.

Yes. DELTA is assessed, moderated and awarded by Cambridge English, part of the University of Cambridge. DELTA is also accredited by Ofqual (the regulator of qualifications, examinations and assessments in England) at level 7 on the National Qualifications Framework and it’s a postgraduate diploma, which equates to Master’s level in terms of level of difficulty. CELTA is accepted throughout the world by organisations and institutions which employ English language teachers.

The Cambridge CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is a practical TEFL qualification that gives essential knowledge, hands-on teaching experience and classroom confidence to qualify as a teacher of English as a second or foreign language. CELTA is designed for individuals with no previous teaching experience or teachers who want to gain a formal qualification and may want to progress to more advanced qualifications.

 

The Cambridge DELTA (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is an advanced blend of theory and practice that helps teachers deepen their understanding of teaching and learning processes, and guide them in their professional development. DELTA is designed for more experienced teachers who intend to advance their careers and take more senior and specialized roles.

Both qualifications are regulated at Level 7 of the UK on the National Qualifications Framework (that is, one level above a university degree). The main difference is that DELTA is more practical and generally serves as a professional development course. An MA is more theoretical and research-based and more focused on academic achievement.

DELTA is a professional development qualification for experienced English language teachers. It is designed for individuals who have already completed a TEFL qualification, such as the Cambridge CELTA, and have at least 1 year of teaching experience. The DELTA is aimed at teachers who wish to deepen their understanding of teaching and learning processes, and who want to progress to more advanced and specialized roles in the field of English language teaching. The DELTA is suitable for those who are looking to advance their careers in teaching, curriculum development, teacher training, materials writing, and other related fields.

No. Although it is desirable to have already obtained a TEFL qualification like the CELTA, it is not a requirement. Nor it is having a university degree. Entry requirements are limited to being at least 18 years old, having a standard of education equivalent to that required for entry into higher education (you do not need a degree), having at least 1 year’s teaching experience and having a proficient level of English (equivalent to CEFR C1 or above if English is not your first language). Of course, you also need to have a strong desire for professional development.

No. You just need to have a level of English equivalent to CEFR C1 or above if English is not your first language (you do not need to present a language proficiency certificate).

Yes. You should have at least 1 year of teaching experience.

No. You don't need to be an expert as long as you know how to use familiar computer applications for video calls (e.g. Skype, Zoom, etc.), office work (e.g. Word, Power Point, etc.) and file sharing (e.g. iCloud, Google Drive, etc.). Some training is provided and your tutors are always there to support you. In terms of equipment, you only need a computer, a microphone, a webcam and a stable internet connection.

There’s no difference except for the mode of studying and teaching. In fact, the certificate doesn’t mention whether you completed the course face-to-face or online. This is because the syllabus and the assessment are exactly the same. Of course, if you take DELTA online you attend classes and teach your students on Zoom. From wherever you are!

Only the intensity! Both options follow the same syllabus and assessment, just at a different pace.
For example, the full-time option for Module 2 lasts 6 weeks (from Monday to Friday) and it’s ideal if you have the time to drop everything and fully focus on your course. The same part-time option lasts 15 weeks (on Sundays) and it’s convenient if you have to manage multiple commitments at home, work or school.

No. The modular format of the course provides flexible entry points. You may choose to enrol in the 3 modules together or separately, in any order at any time.

No. You can take the modules in any order you like and at the pace you prefer. Each modules is assessed separately and you receive a certificate for each module you pass.

No. You can take each DELTA module at a different centre.

As far as Cambridge Assessment English is concerned, the ‘DELTA’ ceased to exist in 2008 when this qualification was replaced by the current 3 DELTA modules. However, the term ‘the DELTA’ is still widely used by employers and teachers alike. It is important to realize that you will receive a separate authorized certificate for each module that you have passed, enabling you to say that you have, for example, DELTA Module 1 and DELTA Module 2. When you have passed all three certificates, Cambridge Assessment English will issue on request an ‘overarching certificate’, with records of the dates when you passed each of the 3 modules in one handy document. What exactly employers mean by ‘DELTA-qualified’ teachers may vary from place to place and if you think it may be important, you should ask. Probably a majority of employers are most interested in whether you have Modules 1 and 2 and less interested in whether you have Module 3, unless they are looking for someone with a particular specialist knowledge.

You can prepare for DELTA Module 1 at one centre and be assessed at another centre. However, if you are an external candidate, you will have to take the responsibility for contacting the centre yourself (e.g. us) and you will need to pay the Cambridge assessment fee to that centre at least 6 weeks before the date of the assessment.

You can prepare for DELTA Module 1 at one centre and bYes, this is possible. If you wish to sign up for the DELTA Module 1 exam only, just drop us a message and we will take care of the enrolment. Please note the payment for the exam must be received at least 6 weeks before the assessment date. Please note that external candidates are also charged an additional 4,000-THB invigilation fee.e assessed at another centre. However, if you are an external candidate, you will have to take the responsibility for contacting the centre yourself (e.g. us) and you will need to pay the Cambridge assessment fee to that centre at least 6 weeks before the date of the assessment.

DELTA Module 1 exams are taken in-person and are always held on the first Wednesday in June and December of every year.

Results for all 3 modules are released normally on the second Friday in August for the June session and on the second Friday in February for the December session.

Quite busy! A typical day on the full-time course will involve input sessions, lesson planning, teaching practice lessons, lesson observations, feedback on practice, consultation on assignments, feedback on assignments, etc. The timetable may vary depending on the schedule of our teaching practice classes. Contact hours usually start at 9.00 and end at approximately 17.30. However, there is a fair amount of independent work which you have to complete after contact hours. You need to be prepared to work long hours for the entire duration of the course.

 

On the part-time course, the activities are the same, just at a different pace.

No. A student/educational visa is not necessary for a short course like DELTA (54 days from beginning to end). A student/educational visa is required if you study in Thailand for more than 3 months. However, depending on your country of origin, you may need to apply for a 60-day tourist visa at a Thai embassy/consulate in your country. Most of our overseas candidates enter and leave Thailand on this type of visa as it covers the entire duration of the course and their stay.


As different countries have different immigration agreements with the Thai government, we suggest checking with the Thai embassy/consulate in your country to find out whether you can be granted a tourist visa on arrival that covers the duration of the course and your stay, or you need to apply for it in advance.


What’s important is that you have a valid visa for the entire duration of the course and your stay.

Having the DELTA can open up a wide range of job opportunities worldwide. Some of our past DELTA graduates moved on to positions such as:

 

- senior teacher or team leader in a language school

- curriculum developer or materials writer for a language school or publisher

- teacher trainer or teacher development coordinator for a language school or other organisation

- academic manager or Director of Studies for a language school

- ELT consultant or advisor for a government agency or international organisation

- lecturer or tutor in TESOL/TEFL at a university or college

 

Additionally, having a DELTA can also increase your chances of getting a higher salary in your current position.

It's very straightforward and there are no deadlines! Just choose your preferred course (you can choose as many modules as you like on the application form) and send your application through our website. No payment is required at this stage. After we receive it, we will send you a pre-interview tasks which you will have to complete before the selection interview. You will attend an online interview with a DELTA trainer who will ask you about the pre-interview task and your motivation for wanting to take the course.  This is to ensure that the course is a suitable match with your needs and wants.
