"My 40K full-time salary and my partner's 15,000 really isn't enough. But we muddle on"

The cost of living - We hear from Thomas, who teaches at a school in Bangkok. He earns 40K a month as a full-time salary but the extra 10,000 he makes from corporate teaching makes all the difference. And due to the Co-vid situation, that ain't happening right now. 


The great escape - Graham taught in Thailand for 7 years at the same school in Chiang Rai and loved it there! But his wife wanted to give living in England a go and Graham felt she deserved the chance.

New teaching job? - We chat with Lynken, who has taught in Thailand for three years. He's looking for a position ideally teaching high school or university students. 

If you want to give yourself a bit of publicity on our chat with a teacher page, you must be in Thailand at the moment and you must have some experience of working in Thailand.
