TEFL job opportunities:
Thailand is alive with TEFL teaching opportunities and is without doubt one of the easiest places in Asia to find TEFL teaching work. The demand for English remains extremely high.  A degree is usually required, but in reality there are many TEFL positions available to anyone with an internationally recognised TEFL certificate.

Opportunities exist in a number of areas; government and private schools, universities, colleges, private language schools, international schools, businesses, the tourism industry. TOEFL, IELTS, GMAT, SAT and other such test-preparation classes are also very popular.  Private tutoring is also in high demand, and can be a great income supplement to the TEFL teacher.

Thai students are extremely motivated to learn, and hold teachers in high esteem.  Their sense of fun makes teaching in Thailand a very satisfying and rewarding experience.  The beauty and mystique of this country are the main reasons that it is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and a focal point for TEFL teachers.
