Teach in Thailand - the ultimate gap year

Why Thailand would make a fantastic choice for your year off.

A year spent teaching here in Thailand can be a valuable experience. The real-world skills you’ll learn will be useful. The friends you make will help you through the tough times and lifetime bonds can be forged


Don't dream it, just do it!

Don't be that person who lives a life of regrets

If the worst happens, just come home! If that job sucks, or you get sick, or the view from your apartment is another apartment... don't stay! You've lost nothing and you've found out that the life of a traveller isn't for you.
