Postbox letter from Christopher
I'm particularly interested in knowing how many teachers attend interviews and negotiate for higher salaries.
Postbox letter from Tomasso
If you are a native speaker, then you can do a teaching license and start working for a reasonable salary (80,000 baht and more). If you are not a native speaker, then you will always be at the same level of earning and you have minimal chances to exceed 40,000 - 45,000 baht per month.
Postbox letter from Gunther
When I see offers for Filipinos (15,000+ baht) or native English speakers (30,000-35,000 baht) I wonder if the advertisers are serious or maybe they are looking for people with elementary school diplomas?
Postbox letter from James
Don't let yourselves be exploited and milled by the system. Do not accept job offers below 70,000 baht per month.
Postbox letter from Jason
It is high time for native speakers to start respecting themselves and stop accepting ridiculous job offers.
Postbox letter from Brendan
For those of you that are NES teachers, the time is now for you to make the change and improve your lot.
Postbox letter from Richard Constable
An 11-month contract is real good if you can get one because most are around 9.5 months - so if its 10 it's okay!
Postbox letter from Darryl
Just saw an ad for a qualified math teacher at an international school for 75K a month. That's just over 400 quid a week and it's in Bangkok.
Postbox letter from Jim
In my opinion 80% of teachers don't care and never will. Paying them more than 35K per month is just money in the bin. 10% care somewhat and 10% take it on as a career and profession.
Postbox letter from Bob
30K is less than 1,000 dollars a month. It is not possible to live on it anywhere in Thailand and this includes Isaan now; unless like most workers I meet: you already have retirement money from another country, do one heck of a lot of tutoring and extra work on the side, or you are very lucky.
