Thailand is called “The Land of Smiles” for many good reasons. The culture is one of kindness, hospitality and good manners. The country boasts some of the most beautiful landscapes and breathtaking scenery whether you’re relaxing on one of the beaches or hiking through the misty mountains. One of the most attractive aspects for many tourists and people who travel to Thailand for work is the extremely low cost of living. Many things westerners consider to be luxuries such as dining out, staying at a five-star hotel or indulging in a massage are comparatively very cheap.
Thailand’s climate is tropical, with the average temperature around 30 degrees Celsius. Economically speaking, it’s a regional power with the second-largest economy in Southeast Asia. Its major industries are manufacturing, agriculture and tourism. As such, there is a high demand for fluent English speakers to teach the language skills needed to service western tourists. Students’ ages range from three to 18 years of age, and with a choice of cities on offer, you really can choose your own adventure.

What You Need
Our schools prefer that you only speak English in class, so you don’t need to learn Thai (Siamese) before you depart. While some schools may like it if you have previous teaching experience, it is not mandatory. Most of the teaching jobs require a bachelor’s degree in any subject, but there are limited schools who do accept native speakers without a degree. TTI can help you through an easy application process to obtain the Visa, TEFL or TESOL certificate. Once the paperwork is complete, we will help to place you in a school in one of your preferred cities.
