As the training comes to a close this feedback provides an excellent opportunity to look back on my experiences in this class. I have also learned to find weaknesses in my own argument as well as the claims that others make.My experiences in this class have also helped me become a better leaner. It was a good experience where I got chance to learn new things. Teaching practice in Thailand was completely new thing to do & learn.

It was a really exciting and an interesting journey. It was a blend of fun and educational. A very helpful and enthusiastic trainer kept us motivated throughout the journey. Essential things like time management, blended learning, and numerous ways to have fun while teaching was covered in the course which really helped us during our teaching practices.

Teaching Job Salary and Benefits in Thailand

All of you who are planning to enrol for TEFL course Thailand must know that remuneration varies wildly in Thailand. Salaries of TESOL qualified teachers at Thai schools depend upon the type of institution (public or private) and the level of instruction (secondary or post-secondary). Full time positions tend to be salary based with part-time positions paying an hourly rate.

In most Thai government institutions, English teaching jobs can fetch you a basic salary of 20,000 + baht per month or US$ 600 which any TEFL certified fresher teacher can expect. At commercial schools about 500 baht per hour can be expected along with perks as health care, vacation, visa arrangements and other expenses. It should be noted that these high paying jobs at international schools don't usually involve English teaching but rather other subjects such as science or math and the average salary at such schools is probably a bit under 100K. Further, recruitment is usually from overseas, and is often dependent on the curriculum used by that school so if the school uses the British curriculum they'll recruit from England; American curriculum they'll recruit from the USA etc.

Earning of around 25k baht per month for a fresher English teacher is considerable provided he or she has a TEFL. However, any figure less than 25k is not acceptable in order to maintain a decent lifestyle. As an experienced and qualified teacher, one should be earning over 35,000 baht a month. The highest confirmed salaries are supposedly provided by high schools, international schools and language schools, at The British Council. Most Thai schools pay overtime for hours worked over and above the contracted number of hours; however they pay only the same hourly rate at par with the standard pay or in a few cases even less.

Salaries to the TEFL qualified English teacher are usually paid monthly, on the last day of the month, although some firms pay twice a month. While most schools will pay you via direct credit into your bank account, there are some schools that will pay you via cheque. At some schools, part-time may staff get paid in arrears, as late as the 12th of the month following the month in which they worked.

Those who have done the ESL teaching certification course in Thailand should know that Thai schools occasionally provide free housing and other benefits, which amounts to a saving of 4,000 or 5,000 baht per month. Some schools / companies provide medical insurance facility as well. Teachers are also assigned 2 or 3 evening classes a week, which earns them another 2,000 to 3,000 baht per month as overtime pay. Foreign teachers who acquire jobs at the colleges on their own can earn about 30,000 baht but they have to pay for housing, which can be grossly expensive in a city like Bangkok. Private high schools such as Bangkok Christian College pay about 35,000 baht. Universities, Thailand's paramount educational institutions, pay about 35,000 baht to 40,000 baht.

If you are a TESOL teacher training certificate holder, then try and find work for a really prestigious or respected institution in Thailand as those institutions entail other benefits. The first is that once the locals know you are an instructor at "Highly Prestigious Location", they will all want to study with you - and they will be prepared to pay big money for the privilege.

Finally it is really important for all those who are interested in teaching English in Thailand, to know that in Thai society, teachers are looked up to and can attract instant admiration and respect in public. Someone working at a prestigious university will get even more respect and an ID badge from such a school carries real weight and if you were to say get pulled over by the police for example, showing them such a badge would in the case of anything minor see you on your way without any further problems. Some schools take training seriously and may even organize training sessions and seminars in resorts, with everything paid for.
