Do you want to teach English and to experience traditional life in Thailand? You can travel to Thailand from four months up to one year and become a paid English teacher. You will interact with the students and teachers in the local school and will have the opportunity to explore the region during the academic holidays.
In order to help volunteers become committed and confident teachers, we provide them with a weekend trip in Bangkok and 2 week introduction and training period in Singburi. This will involve some teacher training; but additionally the chance to learn about the culture, customs, and an introduction to the Thai language. The training will be focused on how to manage a class, what to teach, and how to conduct themselves in a Thai classroom.
Volunteers will be advised of their placement during the training period. The individual schools determine the placements through selection based on the volunteer's application. Placement is guaranteed upon the completion of the introduction and training. The schools are located all throughout Thailand. The schools in Thailand will vary greatly as they do in all education systems and are a mixture of private schools and government schools.
The average salary after training is between 200 and 400 euros per month with a minimum teaching time of 20 hours per week.
