Experience Thailand as a local: from its strong Buddhist influences to its delicious cuisine and the generosity of the Thai people. Thailand has a rich history, a tropical climate, and is renowned for its welcoming hospitality. As a paid English teacher, you'll become a part of your host community and have a unique opportunity to form relationships with your students and other teachers.
Teachers will earn at least 25,000 Thai Baht per month (about $775 as of January 2018), with free housing. Teachers starting in May and committing to a full academic year will earn a 20,000 Baht bonus! Depending on whether you commit to one or two semesters, you will earn between about $3,000 and $8,000 without any rent to pay in a very affordable country.
You don't have to be a veteran teacher to apply, although we look for individuals who can demonstrate adaptability and responsibility, and who have some experience working with youth or young adults.

What our participants are saying
Going to Thailand to teach English is the best thing I have ever done. It has shaped me and made me a better person. I already miss life in Thailand but am also so grateful for all I have accomplished and to return home for a short time before beginning on my next journey… I have learned so much this past year. I have learned what true love is and that is something my students taught me. I have learned that that with risk comes reward and if you work hard it will always pay off. I feel like a completely different person than I was a year ago and I never want to go back to the person I was then. Katie
It isn't often in a job - especially your first out of college - to feel that you're getting more than you're giving. But this is the case in the Teach English in Thailand program. I took a job as a teacher, and the school pays me, houses me, and always seems to be feeding me. I agreed to coach a student for her university interview, and she hands me a bag of handcrafted gifts from Chiang Mai. I taught a physics teacher the word "papaya," and the next day she brings me one. I ask my classes what they are thankful for on Thanksgiving, and they say they are thankful for me. Hannah
