How the OnTESOL Certificate Helped Me Survive The First Year in Thailand

OnTESOL certificate ThailandI was surfing the internet for traveling a year around the world after university, when I stumbled upon teaching English as a way to pay for my adventures. I sent my resume via e-mail to a recruiter and a few months later I was teaching English at a public school in Thailand. All they asked from me was that I showed up with my US passport and university diploma in hand. I didn’t have any teaching experience and never even heard of TESOL certification.

Everything was great in the beginning! I got picked up at the airport, I had a chance to speak face-to-face with the recruiter and thank him for getting me the TESOL job, and I met with a Canadian girl in her early 20’s and a Aussie man in his 30’s, who would turned out to be great friends and travel buddies. Then came the first day on the job, which was a nightmare.

Teaching at Language Schools in Thailand

Teaching English in ThailandThere are hundreds of language schools in Thailand – maybe more. A great number of them are in the capital, Bangkok. My advice to those who want to teach English in Thailand can be summed up in four words: presentation, enjoyment, methodology, and hours.
