Thailand's number one TEFL site: Established in 1999 and still the best.
What's new on ajarn.com...
— 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.
— Finding teaching work in Thailand if you're over 60
"You’ll definitely get work, but you probably won’t get access to the higher paid/better gigs". What other comments and advice did this older teacher receive from experienced teachers on Ajarn's social media channels?
— Send your letters to the Ajarn Postbox
If you've got anything to say on the topic of teaching in Thailand, the Ajarn Postbox is the place to say it. Latest letters include 'Why TEFL course training can be essential'
— "I'm incredibly fortunate"
Our next cost of living survey comes from John, who I'm guessing must work for a top international school in Bangkok. He could be the headmaster. Yes, these incredible teacher packages exist...or at least I think they do.
— Meeting new students for the first time
The first days of the new school term - A new term usually means meeting new students. First impressions count. Just how much they count might surprise you.
— "I'd go back to Thailand in a heartbeat"
Our latest great escape survey is from Maria, who lived and taught in Thailand for three years before returning to England to take care of elderly parents. Is there anything she misses about living and working here?
Are you a teacher who left Thailand for pastures new? Why not give us your thoughts in a great escape survey?
— What's Chachoengsao (Central Thailand) like for teachers?
Some would say that this small town is in the perfect location - halfway between Bangkok and Pattaya. There are also plenty of teaching jobs on offer if you can go without your Western food fix. Let's hear it for Chachoengsao.
Do you live and teach outside Bangkok? Please help us update one of our region guides if you can spare a few minutes.
