Well…aside from the fact you’re going to have the adventure of a lifetime, meet friends for life and live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, there are countless reasons to get your TEFL qualification and teach in Thailand. It really is a case of ‘Where do we begin?’.
Let’s start with this shall we…just look at it…who wouldn’t want that on their door step.
Oh and this…
Ok, we’ll stop, but seriously…who wouldn’t want to live in paradise, getting paid an amazing salary and getting the chance to make a real difference to a country that really needs it. In a recent survey, Thailand’s Education system was ranked 37th in the world, meaning it is seriously falling behind. The importance of being able to speak English is ever growing in countries such as Thailand, and right now there is a severe shortage of native English speakers to teach it. Why not change this and make a real difference to the lives of these children?
In addition to the rich rewards you will get from teaching children that are so desperate to learn, as well as from being immersed in a truly rich and fascinating culture, becoming a TEFL/TESOL teacher will help you no end in your future career. Whether you are looking to become a teacher or not, the skills you will learn from teaching others are truly endless, your confidence increases ten fold, your patience and ability to explain things to others increases and your organisation and initiative skills develop a significant amount. As a result of this, becoming a TEFL/TESOL teacher is an amazing addition to your CV and is sure to make you stand out from the crowd, no matter what career path you are looking to take.
