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. 


— Honestly, I'm here in Thailand to teach

Honestly, I'm here in Thailand to teach

There's no denying it: there's sometimes a stereotype about male English teachers in Thailand being seen as sex tourists. What strategies can you use to break through the stereotypes and show your genuine intentions?


— "60K would be my absolute rock bottom salary in Bangkok"

"60K would be my absolute rock bottom salary in Bangkok"

Our next cost of living survey comes from Barry, who teaches at a private school in central Bangkok. He earns a decent 75K a month, but can't save a significant amount despite getting a good deal on his rent. Could it be because of all those craft beers!?!


— "I got up one morning and I was overwhelmed with a feeling of 'homesickness'"

"I got up one morning and I was overwhelmed with a feeling of 'homesickness'"

Our next great escape survey is from Brendan, who taught in Thailand for five years before feeling homesick and heading back to the UK. "My mother had suddenly become very ill, my nieces and nephews were all growing up. I just felt like I didn't want to be away from 'home' any longer"

Are you a teacher who worked in Thailand but moved on to pastures new? We would love to hear from you! 



— Who do you work with?

Who do you work with?

A tongue-in-cheek look at some of the characters you might find yourself working with in a teachers room, from Mr Reception and Kanom Jim to Light-fingered Larry and Mr Showpiece. It takes all sorts!


— Send your letters to the Ajarn Postbox

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 'Take whatever job comes first'


— What's Hua Hin (South Thailand) like for teachers?

What's Hua Hin (South Thailand) like for teachers?

Once one of the nicest beach resort towns in Thailand, but many say it's gone very touristy these days. Is Hua Hin a place for a teacher to settle and find work?


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