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

There are plenty of teaching jobs around at the moment and Thailand has virtually done away with all entry restrictions. Starting from 1st July, Thailand is fully open to foreign visitors. There is no longer a need to apply in advance for a Thailand Pass or special insurance. You just need to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test if asked on arrival. Yes, we are getting back to normal folks. View all the current teaching positions on the Ajarn jobs page.

Our next cost of living survey comes from Richie, who teaches in Canada. In fact I think it's our first ever cost of living survey from that region. Richie also taught in South Korea a number of years ago.

Using teaching agencies
