Do you have the itch to move to Thailand? Do you want to escape the drab cubicles of the corporate world for a more adventurous life in the Land of Smiles?
Then you should consider teaching English in Thailand.
But before you jump in, there’s one thing you need to think about: a TEFL.
A TEFL certificate lets you teach English to non-native English speakers.
But not all TEFLs are the same. In fact, there are only two TEFL academies in Bangkok that are backed by Thailand’s Ministry of Education.
Before I tell you about the TEFL academy I recommend you join, let me tell you why having the right TEFL is so important.
When I came to Thailand I had a 100-hour online TEFL. I paid $400 for the course, only to find out it held absolutely no weight in Thailand. I was able to find teaching work, but the jobs were the lowest paying in Bangkok—no one else wanted them.
I knew I had to get a legit TEFL in order to thrive as a teacher in Bangkok. That’s when a friend of mine recommended a TEFL academy that would change the course of my life in Thailand.
What’s the name of the school, you ask?
