Key information

Thailand remains one of the most popular destinations in Asia to teach English. Teaching in the ‘Land of Smiles’ provides an amazing opportunity to explore an exotic and culturally rich country that is growing rapidly, yet still maintains many of its ancient customs and landscapes. From the white sandy beaches in the South and the wild mountains in the North, to the ancient temple grounds in the central region, Thailand has a lot to offer. This wonderfully diverse country is packed full of history, culinary delights, culture while still taking steps to modernise and move with the times

Testimonials

My experience has been wonderful. The cultural experience has been wonderful – I love Thailand and cannot wait to experience it fully – teaching and exploring!

Ben Freud

So far, being in Thailand has been the best experience of my life. I have had the opportunity to make the best friends of my life. I have learned so much during the past month. I am so thankful for the opportunities I’ve gained by choosing this program and Thailand.

Kaysee Carrere

It’s been a wonderful experience. I’ve seen things, heard things, and met people that otherwise I wouldn’t have come into contact with. It’s really opened my eyes almost on a spiritual level. I’ve enjoyed interacting with the people and being able to connect with them.

Thomas Labuschagne
