Latest Job

    This is the perfect place to start a new career in teaching! More often than not, if you're travelling, Thailand is where you’ll start. This is often the same with TEFL. Thailand is much more than beach parties and ladyboys, its rich and inviting culture will immerse you in its magic. There's no surprise you’ll hear people saying how much they love 'the land of smiles', the people are humble, the food is delicious and the scenery is paradisiacal. You can expect an easy and relaxed life here with good company and a view. 
    The majority of TEFL positions in Thailand will offer accommodation with the job, which makes starting off easier for you. It's important to do some research on the kind of location you want to live in, as it's not uncommon to get placed in the countryside and quickly find out that you’re the only foreigner in the village. Although, some people may desire this lifestyle, there are plenty of jobs in the city and by the beach too. In the bigger cities, friends are easy to come by, there isn't as much of a language barrier and life can be adventurous. Whereas, smaller cities and beachside town will offer entirely different experiences.
    The classroom life is a great reason to move to Thailand, as the kids are great fun to teach. Whether they're seeing how many of them can cling on to you at once or trying to become your best-friend after class, they're always doing something! Teaching here is all about active learning, which does make it a tiring profession, but with averagely 15-25 hours per week, there's a lot of downtime for socialising and relaxing. Admittedly, Thailand isn't the place to come if you want to make lots of money, but it is the place to come if you want a life-changing experience and cheerful lifestyle.

    A country of rich blue oceans, luxurious beach resorts and a huge growth in tourism, you may think the cost of living has skyrocketed in the last ten years… but you would be wrong. 
    Arguably, people will say it used to a be a lot cheaper than it is today, but you can’t argue with the average cost to live of $700 per month (including accommodation) not being cheap.
    Salary: 25,000-40,000THB ($720-1150)
    Rent: 8,000-14,000THB ($230-400)
    Meal: 50-70THB ($1.50-2)
    Beer: 70THB ($2)
    Water: 15THB ($0.40)
    Transport (Single fare): 30B ($0.80)
    Taxi (based on 1km): 6-20THB ($0.20-0.60)
    Utilities: 2,300THB ($65)
    Cinema: 175THB ($5)
    Gym (per month): 1,000-2,000THB ($28-57)
    Domestic Flight (based on Bangkok to Chiang Mai): 1,000THB ($28)
