Thailand is home to more than 200,000 expatriates from all over the world, with many staying in the country for more than 5 years. They are attracted by Thailand’s outstanding quality of life, amazing travel opportunities, and tropical climate.
To teach English in Thailand, most teachers will require native proficiency and a bachelor’s degree. TEFL certification is not always required. The average salary for teaching in Thailand is $800 - $3,500 per month. Types of Teaching Jobs in Thailand. Most teachers will end up teaching at either a private language school or a public school. There are also several opportunities for teaching young learners at preschools. The possibility to teach at a university also exists but isn't quite as common. The same goes for teaching at an international school: there are opportunities, but they are competitive and often require that teachers have a teaching certificate from their home country.
Public Schools. Average salary: $800 - $1,000 USD per month. Requirements: A bachelor's degree and fluency in English. A TEFL certificate is a plus. Most teachers teach in public schools and can expect to receive training from the Thai Ministry of Education. Depending on the region, the resources available could range from limited (in poor areas) to modern. Expect to have many large class sizes (around 50 students in a class) but also know that you'll have between a few weeks to a few months off per year to relax and travel.
Working in a private language institution can result in a more erratic schedule to accommodate business people (early morning) and students (afternoon and evening). Class sizes are generally smaller than in public schools (around 10 students per class). Teachers may be able to earn additional income by offering private tutoring to their students for around 300-700 baht per hour but be aware that some contracts prohibit private tutoring, and schools will fire teachers for “stealing their customer.”. Private International Schools.
Thailand is an English teacher’s dream. With a low cost of living, incredible food, rich culture, plenty of partying, and a mai pen rai (no worries) attitude, the Land of Smiles is a very popular country for English teachers. For Thais, English is considered a necessity to work in the global market, so there is always a need for teachers. With language schools, primary schools, universities, and other locations offering English classes, there are numerous avenues for employment. In order to do so, you need to be a native speaker from an English-speaking country (defined as the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand ) or prove your fluency and have a bachelor’s degree. Because of the popularity of teaching English in Thailand, I’d recommend also having a 120-hour TEFL, TESOL, or CELTA certificate to make you more competitive.
With all teaching opportunities in Thailand, salaries vary greatly depending on the location and employer. In hot tourist destinations like Koh Samui, Phuket, and other spots, expect to earn less than what you would make in less exotic locales because people will accept a lower salary in exchange for the beach lifestyle. You will earn the most in Bangkok, followed by Chiang Mai.
