I flew out to teach in Thailand in the midst of the pandemic, and I'm so so glad I did. I was looking for an experience that would excite me and push me out of my comfort zone and teaching in Thailand definitely ticked both of those boxes! The teaching was super chill and fun, and every day really was completely different so it was never boring. I've met wonderful people from all over the world whilst teaching here and had so many new experiences, from living in a rural Thai village to swimming in waterfalls and hiking to hidden beaches. I would urge anyone to think about coming to live and teach abroad and I couldn't have chosen a better company to go with. The Fewer Things have been fantastic every step of the way, I came out here with my boyfriend and they were really accommodating to us as a couple. They were really helpful in organising so we could go out together, and found a placement for the two of us in the same school, so they are brilliant whether you want to travel solo or with a partner/friend. Jaemi has been great and has checked in on us regularly whilst in Thailand, he goes above and beyond to ensure your move to living and teaching in Thailand is smooth and stress free, I can't recommend the fewer things enough.
If you're thinking of coming out here, definitely do it!

What was your funniest moment?
When we saw the locals riding down the river rapids on rubber rings in our little village one weekend and thought it looked fun so we joined in. We were fully clothed, and got absolutely drenched and we did come away with a few little scrapes but it was definitely worth it and embarrassing but pretty funny slipping and falling in the currents and having to be helped up by the local kids who were half my size!

After being stuck in England during a pandemic and being furloughed, I was looking for a new adventure and came across The Fewer Things (TFT). TFT were so helpful throughout the process of getting out here, taking me step-by-step all the documents and processes I need to completed to get to Thailand. They created group chats with other teachers who were coming out here so we could get to know each other and to provide information and guidance regarding things we needed to do. Overall, TFT were, and continue to be, extremely helpful throughout and are always available if you have questions or concerned. I can't recommend them highly enough!

I decided to apply for The Fewer things in December 2020 and arrived in Thailand just a few weeks ago. The Fewer Things were there every step of the way! Preparing beforehand (and all the extra paperwork due to covid), during travel and once here. Can’t thank them enough for the endless support. The tefl qualification was easy to follow through online and feel prepared ready to teach for my first day this coming week in Prachinburi (the most friendly town!). I had the opportunity to speak to other teachers before travelling via WhatsApp and made friends who were experiencing the same things, alongside helping each other out. I highly recommend The Fewer Things to anyone who wants to have a fantastic tefl experience.

The Fewer Things (TFT) has undoubtedly given me the opportunity of a lifetime. As a graduate of Law this opportunity excited me as I wanted to be able to explore and immerse myself in a different culture before I had to settle down to the usual 9-5 job. TFT has been incredibly supportive and been in constant contact with me since I first applied at least 9 months ago! In particular, their help became essential when went into a global pandemic, but I was reassured of ever step I had to take and they were there to reply to any queries I had within hours. I am now teaching in a school in Thailand and my colleagues could not be any nicer! The lifestyle here is such a change, but a blessing to me. TFT has really allowed me to appreciate the fewer things in life and has provided me with an unforgettable experience!

I am writing this review on my first Thursday at the school. I travelled with my girlfriend to a school in the north-eastern Thailand and it has been everything we expected and more. TheFewerThings have been really helpful to us every step of the way and helped make all the admin much easier!

Support from Jaemi was always available, from initial interview throughout the travelling and in school, and the 2-week quarantine feels like a lifetime ago. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone thinking about travelling or teaching abroad!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take plenty of pictures! Thai people are always at it so you may as well join in too.
