Teaching English in Thailand

Thailand is known as the Land of Sunshine, due to its warm tropical climate. It also has many places to explore. These include Bangkok, the beaches of Phuket  and Hua Hin, deep jungles and its floating markets. Visitors to this country can also savour the intricate wood carvings of elephants and other wildlife, and the  Buddhist temples. Monks, in their brightly coloured orange gowns, are a common site in Bangkok, weaving their way in and out of the crowds.

Thailand is also known as the Land of Smiles, with some of the friendliest inhabitants on earth. Despite Thai people staring at you because of your facial features, it will not seem as uncomfortable as it might if the same thing were to happen to you in Japan. The reason for this is because the people in this country, despite their open curiosity, reach out and include you in their lives, rather than keep you at a distance. The slow pace of the country also offers welcome relief  from the faster-paced lifestyle of other nations in the region.The Thai language, with its delicate script curving across the page, and its tones, can offer a challenge to the uninitiated. However, unravelling this language will also create a new adventure. Thai food, full of subtle flavours and spices, will give you plenty of opportunities to experiment and taste something new.

Teaching Opportunities 

Due to its popularity, Thailand is a competitive place to find a job, but it also  means that there are plenty of opportunities for those who have a 3-year degree. It has become harder and harder to get a work visa in this country without a degree, and would mean working illegally on a tourist visa.This degree requirement is sometimes overlooked if you can demonstrate to the authorities that you have years of teaching experience. Thailand, however, due to the friendly students and slower pace is an excellent place for teachers who are newly certified, to learn and hone their teaching skills. 

It is possible to apply for a job outside of the country. This means that, generally, you are more likely to be given assistance with your visa, airfare and accommodation. The more qualifications and experience you have, the more  likely you are to receive a good salary with a solid benefits package.Teaching jobs are available in private language schools, state schools and universities. Jobs are generally located in Bangkok and Chang Mai. Surat Thani is also another possibility. With the tourism sector booming in Thailand, there are also new  opportunities opening up in hotels for in-house TEFL teachers, where you might  also be asked to give basic business courses.

My advice to those who are thinking about teaching abroad is just go for it!
