Ever want to teach English in Thailand? How about working at a university that looks like a Palace? How about one that has fountains, Olympic size swimming pools, sport courts, lush gardens, wall-to-wall marble corridors? You can even wear that tweed professor jacket with glasses that you always dreamed about. And all you need is a university degree and be a native English speaker. Sound too good to be true? No sir.
Checkout ABAC University in Thailand.
So in summary, you get:
-To work in a big beautiful air conditioned Palace
-Students that look at you in admiration (not chairs being thrown at you, ie inner city American schools)
-Attractive students walking about that make you feel like a dirty old man
-25,000-35,000 baht ($850-$1,000) for 15 hours of work a week
-Paid holidays including the 2-month summer break (clutch)
You can find gigs that pay more in Thailand but you will be working more hours and they will probably require a TEFL (English training course). So a great opportunity to see if you like teaching English before you shell out your time and money on a TEFL course. Also, at only 15 hours a week, you can still have time to get your side hustle on and create an online business, travel blog, or can get some side cash by grading thesis papers. Or you can do the irresponsible thing and drink and party yourself into a coma or the unemployment line.
Oh yeah and I believe I did mention it is in Thailand, so you get the delicious food thing, cheaper than dirt cost of living thing, sexy eyes from Thai women (and lady boys if you fancy) thing, and perpetually sweating through your clothes thing. A lot of things included.
So grab that beautiful butterfly baby and get an awesome experience living abroad in the Land of Smiles – Thailand.
