I prefer teens or secondary level, since I am an experienced secondary teacher and currently teaching as a mathematics teacher in both lower and higher secondary levels.

Living and working is Thailand was the best decision that I've made in my career so far. Things are going great so far, I already absorbed the culture here in Thailand.

Q4. If you had to move to teach English somewhere else, which country would be next on your list and why?

If I have the chance to teach English in Japan, I will probably grab the opportunity to teach there. Japan is a beautiful country and I can also help the Japanese students to become fluent in English.

Q5. Of all the places you have travelled to in Thailand, which is your favourite and why?

Ohh I've been to Ubon Ratchathani, Buriram, Pattaya, Chonburi, etc. But I really love to stay in Bangkok! I love to live near shopping malls and meet my friends there.

Q6. How do you see Thailand's TEFL landscape changing in the next five or ten years?

TEFL provides teachers the opportunity to teach and serve the world, and I'm certain that Thailand will become the number one country in Asia in terms of providing quality education in the next five to ten years.

Because Thailand is a great country that provides many opportunity for TEFLers.

Yeah, I was also a teacher in my country and there are a lot of things that I could compare to Thailand in terms of teaching. Thailand provides better classroom facilities, friendlier environment and has very respectful students.

Q9. What advice would you give to a new teacher thinking of embarking on a teaching career in Thailand?

I have some friends who followed me here in Thailand, and some things that I told them why they should teach here is that Thailand needs more teachers especially in English, and this is an opportunity for them to help the Thai kids to understand and able to speak in English, and lastly, about the salary, Thailand provides better benefits especially the salary compared to Philippines.
