Get Paid to Teach English at a Palace in Bangkok Thailand

abac english teacher

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
-Free accommodation
-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.

    Hey Turner,
    Another great find in the land of smiles 🙂 I thought you needed a TEFL and a degree to teach. Suppose there are exceptions to the rule all over Thailand. Did you teach there for long?

      I havent taught there yet. I am considering it. I believe in trying things out first before you throw down a big investment in it…ie tefl.

    Hey Adam. It depends where you teach. At this school you dont, which is why I pointed it out as a good opp for someone who just wants to get their feet wet. I havent started yet.

    If they pay for my flight over there and don’t mind my fear of commiting to a place for more than a few months, I’m down. We can have like water cooler talks and stuff.

      these guys dont pay. But many do. This is more of if you want to get your feet wet. But…it could be awesome. Water cooler talks with mugs to our faces are always great.

    I lived in Thailand for 3 years, as a military spouse. I taught English at a local kindergarden and a degree was not required. There were dozens of like jobs available. Likewise, I was in Japan for 3 years and at the time taught conversational English to college students, homemakers and businessmen. Again, I did not have a degree. The pay was excellent and the great experiences were far greater than that. You can live fabulously in other countries. Go for it. By the way, I am Scottish by birth and American by citizenship. Never be afraid to explore new and different opportunities.
