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?

We have a small favor to ask. Readership at Thailand Starter Kit has grown but the revenue we bring in each month hasn’t matched our running costs. Unlike many other websites, we don’t want to put up a paywall or ruin your reading experience with an overwhelming amount of third-party ads. So you understand why we need your support. Thailand Starter Kit’s unmatched, long-form guides on living, working, retiring, and starting a business in Thailand take a lot of time, money, and hard work to create. But we do it because we believe in helping expats just like you—because we are/were also in your shoes.
If everyone reading our guides helps fund them, our future as expats in Thailand will be much easier. For as little as $1 you can support Thailand Starter Kit—and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
