New story: Teaching English in Thailand

Posted by somtam2000 on 23/2/2009 at 10:10 admin

For some travellers to Southeast Asia, the lure of a job in the region is just too strong and instead of heading home they decide to stay. Teaching English -- either as a way to legally stay in the country for a long stretch of time, or as a means to try and save money before continuing your travels, remains one of the most popular avenues of work.

The real deal alas is often not quite as glamorous as the glossy brochures suggest, and there's no shortage of tales of woe.

Travelfish researcher Charly Paap spent a year teaching English in the northeastern Thai city of Nakhon Ratchasima (Khorat) and she's written a story for Travelfish on her experience.

Have you ever taught English or done some other kind of work as a means to prolong your travels? Let us know what did (or didn't) work for you.
