As Thailand attracts more international visitors, and as the country's exports grow, English has become more important to everyday Thais. In addition to the huge number of Thais working in tourism and other industries that require the use of English. There is demand for native English speakers to teach in Thailand and as such, teaching has become a popular, perhaps even the most popular, choice of job for Westerners who wish to live in Thailand. Becoming a teacher of English is one of the few jobs that most Westerners can do in Thailand.
Teaching assignments starts within 2-7 days after the five days training. All teacher enrolled for this project can look forward to a maximum of 25 hours of teaching; not repeating a single class twice in a week. The class is usually 40-60 minutes long. The normal class size in a Thai school is about 45-50. A teaching week is from Monday to Friday, usually from 8 am till 4.30pm. Teachers will have to schedule and submit lessons plans on a monthly basis. Thai schools do not operate on Thai national holidays, Saturdays and Sundays.
During the teaching assignment, the teachers are provided with accommodation by the schools. The school in remote areas will not have accommodations up to western standards. Most of the accommodations do have air conditioner. There are no kitchens in most of the Thai houses. All the accommodations need a deposit amount, which is usually refunded to the candidates after 1 or 2 months. If the school is unable to give the teachers accommodation they will be given accommodation allowance instead.
