Teaching opportunities in Thailand (and sometimes other countries in Asia)

Beware of several websites that are copying job ads ('stealing' is actually the correct word) from Ajarn dot com. We only post job ads that are sent DIRECTLY to us. An employer will sometimes ask us to make changes to a job description but those changes will NOT be made by the website copying the ad. Trust the info, trust Ajarn! View all the current teaching positions on the Ajarn jobs page.

Do you live and teach outside Bangkok? Please help us update one of our region guides if you can spare a few minutes. 


— Common law and common sense

Common law and common sense

One of the biggest grievances of expats living in Thailand is the enforcement of laws. Thais and expats alike assume that the rich can do what they want to and the police forces are corrupt and lazy. But that's not the whole story.
