Great experience

An overall great program.
There were no problems regarding bureaucracy and other issues associated with working abroad. The management guided and assisted me with everything: getting to/from the office, my visa application, and basically all the paperwork. Even finding accommodation.
The pay is great, considering the fact you would be working outside of major cities. You'd be able to afford a lot and be able to travel to other places during holidays.
The school I was placed at is one of the best in the province. However, even there the quality of the students may greatly vary, and the lack of a proper curriculum makes things tough. But on the bright side, the school's management turned out to be very lax which allows for a more creative approach to planning your lessons.

  • Helpful management
  • Decent pay
  • Training before moving your assigned school
  • It takes some time to adjust to how things are done here

KE Experience

The whole experience has really been a blessing. I am thankful for all the people I was able to meet and the things I was able to do.
I was first introduced to the culture and the people during my time in the initial beginning. Customs are different. Perspectives differ but respect is very much essential.
The importance of education, with regards to teaching and learning, is also very important.
Although there are points where the differences are great our similarities and appreciation for each other is something that will continue to share.

Teaching Abroad

Well my teaching experience has been nothing but amazing so far. Everyone at the school has been very helpful and the students are wonderful and kind. You have good days and bad days with teaching which you learn from both and can improve on day by day. My journey has been unique as this is my first teaching job and I had no idea what to expect. The advice I would give to any future teacher is to jump in the deep end and you will learn how to swim. At first it is daunting but you will land on your feet and your journey will work out on its own.

The moment we arrived at the training site we were welcomed and greeted with open arms. All the staff members were nice and had answers to many questions that us new teachers had ( and there was a lot of questions). Training was 5 days and everyday was filled with information, great food, and adventure. I loved how hands on this staff was with us 7 teachers. We stayed on the same street of the training building so there was no hassle to get there in the morning. We were quiet a group but it was fun.

Samantha graduated from the University of South Africa with a BA (Honours) in Psychology. She always wanted to travel and teach in another country but always found an excuse not to. It was more of the fear of the unknown in her case. She eventually overcame her fear, completed her TEFL diploma and is now an English Teacher in Thailand. Samantha has proven that it's not to late to follow your dreams.

Why did you choose this program?

I chose Kids English Thailand because it's a reputable agency with an excellent track record. They have professional staff who are always willing to assist with any concerns or questions you may have. Although they have many foreign teachers, they make each one of us a priority.

What did your program provider (or university) assist you with, and what did you have to organize on your own?

KET provided me with pre-departure orientation which was extremely helpful. They assisted me with the entire recruitment process, from getting me a job to processing all the paperwork required in obtaining my Non-B visa, teacher license and work permit. The only thing I had to do was to make sure that I had all the necessary documents.

What is one piece of advice you'd give to someone going on your program?

I would say it's very important to keep an open mind. Remember that you are visiting a totally different country from your own. Embrace and respect the new culture of the country you visiting. Do lots of research before you leave. Be receptive and open to change. Basically just go with the flow.

What does an average day/week look like as a participant of this program?

A typical week would involve walking to and from school. The school is not far and I quite enjoy the walk as I encounter lots of interesting and diverse things. I teach in a primary school with classes ranging from twenty-one to thirty-three students.

Going into your experience abroad, what was your biggest fear, and how did you overcome it? How did your views on the issue change?

My biggest fear was coming to a new country and being alone. I thought I would be the only foreign teacher in my school and I would be uncomfortable. Well, that fear was quickly overcome as I have met several other foreign teachers at my school who have become my new friends.

What is your favorite travel memory?

My favorite travel was when my family took me to Myanmar. We got to visit some ancient sites, temples, and cultural sites. We also got to go up in the air in a hot air balloon at sunrise and to this day it is one of the most memorable moments of my life. I have many pictures from that trip that I treasure and have displayed around my house.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

Working for kids English Thailand really allowed me to use my degree in communications in a real-world situation. I am more confident; my English ability has increased, and it is statistically proven via English Proficiency exams that I have taken after the fact. Using English everyday instead of my native tongue Thai has accelerated my growth, which is something I am eternally grateful for and have admiration for Kids-English Thailand for creating an environment that is conducive to personal development.

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

Working for Kids-English Thailand means that I meet foreign teachers from multiple countries and multiple walks of life! Some people are very independent whilst others need the 24/7 support that Kids-English Thailand provides. My favorite story that I tell people is from one night back in late 2021 a teacher called the Kids-English Thailand Hotline and I answered, and they needed advice on how to use a rice cooker that they had just bought, because the instructions were in Thai. For someone who has been using a rice cooker from aged 10 at first it felt like an unusual question, and I had to take a step back and put myself in someone else’s shoes and see something from a different perspective and provide the necessary support and guidance. This memory and life lesson will live on I me for the rest of my life!

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

Kids-English Thailand before 2020 had a successful China program, but post 2020 the China program is on pause and Kids English Thailand now focuses on Thailand. I would have loved to experience the teaching in China Program. I watch Chinese drama shoes and movies and I am huge fan of the ancient history of China. Having the opportunity to visit the ancient sites I see in dramas and movies would be an amazing experience for me and one I don’t know if I can ever fulfill!

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

Kids English Thailand is a company that is attempting to make coming to work abroad as affordable for everyone involved. There isn’t a profit driven culture inside Kids English Thailand, it is a culture shaped around personal development, personal responsibility, and most of all affordability for all parties involved. Kids English Thailand truly lives up to their motto of:
Inspiration, Immersion, Impact

A teachers’ impact is the inspiration for the younger generation!”
— Kids-English Motto

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

The biggest factor in my mind to make a company successful is transparency. Always striving for transparency and taking feedback seriously and attempting to improve the internal working of the company. I see this in the day-to-day work life and culture at Kids English Thailand and I believe it is a business model that can succeed, however, it’s a long-term approach and not a short-term profit driven mindset. I am proud to be working for a company that cares about the work they do and the impact they have!

Kids-English Thailand is striving for a genuine meaningful work and travel experience despite the challenges and the hurdles that is the primary focus and culture inside the company.
