  • Teaching in Thailand is a very popular career
    option and it has been so for many years now.
    This is
  • because the demand of learning English language
    among Thai natives is still very high and it is
    one of
  • the most popular South East Asian countries where
    English teachers are very sought after.
  • People look for teaching jobs in Thailand because
    they are very high in demand there and apart from
  • that, most schools (both private and public)
    along with language institutions keep looking for
    certified
  • English teachers very often. This is a very
    respectable job there and one can also get a
    taste of local
  • community if they can travel all the way to
    Thailand in order to teach English.

Teaching jobs in Thailand requirements (English)
  • This mostly depends in where one us applying for
    jobs as an English teacher
  • because each school has slightly different set of
    requirements though the
  • basic requirements are mainly the same.
  • A TEFL Certificate from a registered TEFL School
    ( one can also go for a TEFL certificate course
    in Thailand)
  • A proper University Degree
  • A High Level of Speaking and Reading and Writing
    practice in English
  • One may have a thought that do they really need a
    proper university degree to
  • teach English in Thailand? Well, a degree is not
    really required to enrol for a
  • TEFL course but when one wants a work permit to
    act as a teacher in Thailand
  • then it is a must requirement. Without this it
    will be termed that one is either
  • teaching illegally there or in a tourist/marriage
    visa.

  • There are some people who complete TEFL course
    Thailand without a proper university degree. In
    these
  • cases one can go for online teaching in English,
    or else they can teach in other places like Laos
    or
  • Cambodia where a university degree is not
    required. In fact, some can also take up the
    teaching as a
  • volunteer work and do it on a part time basis.
  • It is also not necessary to be a native speaker
    in order to enrol for a TEFL course, but one just
    needs to have
  • a high level of knowledge of English. In order to
    get work permit as a teacher in Thailand, if they
    are not a
  • native English speaker, then they might need to
    have IELTS or TOEIC certificates which proves
    that though
  • one is not a native English speaker, they do know
    high level of English. But when one is looking
    for teaching
  • jobs in Thailand they need to keep in mind that
    native speakers are sometimes given more
    preferences than
  • the non native speakers.

Is it best to take a TEFL Course in Thailand or
in Your Home Country?
  • Well, it is very much possible to take a TEFL
    course in any part of the world literally. But
    there are also many
  • people who choose to get the certificate sitting
    at their home country before they travel abroad.
    This is
  • because many people want to leave home only when
    they are assured and qualified enough andthis
  • certification gives them proper satisfaction.
  • But if one is looking for teaching jobs in
    Thailand, they might prefer to take the TEFL
    course there. This
  • actually has a few advantages.
  • One will get a good experience in teaching
    students of the nationality whom they will be
    teaching later anyway.
  • During the course, one can come in contact with
    many people who might be of great help in finding
    a teaching job once the course is over.
  • In case of Thailand, the course can be cheaper
    than many individuals home country. So one can
    actually save money by doing that.

  • In most cases, the TEFL courses continue for 4
    weeks but there are online courses as well. But
    when one is looking for teaching jobs in
    Thailand, they need to know that most schools
    prefer people who have done the face to face
    classes than the online course. This is because,
    practical classes can teach more techniques and
    methods of English teaching than that of online
    classes.
  • There are a few things though which one needs to
    keep in mind when they are looking for a TEFL
    course
  • Make sure that the course offers at least
    120 hours of classroom time.
  • The in class experience should also have
    teacher practical. This is important because one
    should have a flavour of teaching in a class
    experience before they actually start doing so.
  • See if the certificate which is provided
    is an internationally recognised one which is not
    only valid in the country where one has done
    their course but in other countries as well.

Most TEFL courses run for 4 weeks and admissions
are open throughout the year. There are plenty
of teaching jobs in Bangkok and Chiang Mai and
English teachers are always high in demand. One
just needs to apply to the school once the TEFL
course is done and then they can get an
opportunity to teach there.
