Teaching in Thailand

Teaching in Thailand—Are You Ready?

Teaching in Thailand is a serious commitment. Adapting to the Thai way of life takes a willingness to try new things, or to hear and consider new ideas. Being open minded will make teaching in Thailand a wonderful and rewarding experience for you and the community. We urge all of our applicants and teachers to bear in mind this worthwhile piece of advice.

Cultivate a love for English through purposeful and expressive activities and assignments as a classroom leader. Use your background as a native speaker to creatively and resourcefully encourage Thai students to learn and develop a fundamental understanding of the English language.

Do more than just stand at the front of the classroom and lecture. Challenge yourself and be a part of one the most respected professions in Thailand. With Road Experience by your side, immerse in a culturally rich environment that is not only rewarding to yourself, your students, and your fellow colleagues, but to the community as a whole.

Tasks and Responsibilities

  • Devise a thorough curriculum and develop weekly lesson plans
  • Inventively produce a variety of educational materials for in-class activities
  • Creatively manage student behavior and establish classroom guidelines
  • Actively and enthusiastically participate in school related engagements
  • Mark student classwork, homework, exams, and other additional assignments


  • Gain teaching knowledge and skills through practical experience
  • Instruct your Thai students and teachers in a graceful and nurturing manner
  • Recognize, appreciate, and respect Thai culture and the Thai way of life
  • Make every day constructive, positive, and worthwhile for you and your students

Teaching Period in Thailand

A typical school year is divided into two half-year terms. The first semester begins May to September; the second November to February. October, March, and April are holiday periods. Teachers who sign a 1-year contract beginning from November are guaranteed 2-3 weeks paid holiday during October.

We advise teachers to apply before the start of each semester to secure an ideal location and school; however, we are certainly able to place teachers every month without difficulty.
