Thailand is a popular destination for ESL teachers who are interested in experiencing an ancient and diverse culture in a country that prides itself on its rich history, tropical climate, renowned hospitality, and beautiful natural scenery.

Included in the Teach-in-Thailand program is our fun, informative, and action packed cultural orientation week, which covers everything Thai: history, politics, religion, culture, and society.

Teachers earn generous salaries and live comfortably because of the low cost of living. Degree holders are preferred, but we also accept non-degree holders.

I have really enjoyed the entire training process and living in Hua Hin. I have had a lot of fun getting to know the area – it was a very nice way to start my journey here in Thailand. I loved all the activities that were setup for us.

Colleen

Instructors and coordinators were great resources for advice on this huge culture change. Seeing/hearing all of their stories gave me the confidence that I can do this and change my life. The TESOL course allowed me to make great friendships, while adapting to life here.
