Q1. Where did you move to and when?
I moved to China in October of 2020.
Q2. How long did you work in Thailand?
I worked in Thailand for nine years. I taught high school and kindergarten.
Q3. What was your main reason for moving?
Thailand was a fun place to live but hard to save money. I would work in language centers, teach privates both face-to-face and online. You can certainly make extra money but you have to double your workload. In China I make over 165K baht per month.
Q4. What are the advantages of working where you are now compared to Thailand?
The city is very high-tech with less noise pollution. It's right near a bay so it's a great place to go for walks.
Q5. What do you miss about life in Thailand?
I miss my friends. I miss Thai food. I also miss the mai bpen rai attitude.
Q6. Would you advise a new teacher to seek work in Thailand or where you are now?
I would say yes, give Thailand a try but really do your research before going.
Q7. Any plans to return to Thailand one day?
Yes, I would love to come back to visit old friends.
Q8. Anything else you'd like to add?
