I really enjoyed my time in Thailand, thanks to Open Book Teachers team and their support!!! Thailand is such a nice place... People are easy going and very friendly, the cheap food is delicious and landscapes are stunning from North to South.
I recommend to anyone thinking of teaching abroad after the whole covid situation to try Thailand and moreover to teach with Open Book Teachers, I started with a 5-month contract and extended it till March this year, I went back home just in time before the lockdown. They assisted me with everything from day 1: housing, transportation, visa etc.. . and it definitely made my year a lot easier and stress-free. Loved it!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would definitely do it again but try another location further south on the coast! The north is amazing, beautiful places and great people but I would like to work near the beach next time!

I had the best time there and I can't wait to be able to go back. I was teaching English in a high school in Chonburi city which is located on the coast (1,5 hour from Bangkok), I signed for a 5-month contract (Oct'19-Feb'20) and everything went as expected... I can only recommend this program to anyone thinking of teaching in Thailand, their team is dedicated and friendly and this is a must when you are travelling abroad alone! Unfortunately for me, I had to leave 3 weeks before my contract ended as the COVID 19 outbreak started getting serious in Thailand, but openbook understood totally and told me I could be back whenever I wanted.

What would you improve about this program?
I had to go once to Laos for a 2 days trip to apply for my work visa at the Thai consulate there, if this could be avoided that would be much better, it is quite a long trip by bus (about 10hours) so I recommend to check with them to have this work visa applied in your home country directly (of course if you are flying from your country, which was not my case!)

Open book team made this journey easier for me, and I can only thanks them for that. Dedicated & genuine people, that's what you need abroad especially as a solo "traveler".
Initially I planned to come teach with my buddy, but ended up by myself with a lot of doubts before leaving home, anyway my flight was paid and non-refundable so let's go..! My first day in Thailand was definitely overwhelming, I was supposed to be with my friend but was just alone, still unsure if it was right or not.. On my 2nd day I met Open book in Bangkok and from there everything seems clearer, no more doubt (almost :)). their team was very welcoming and helpful which was exactly what I needed at that time. They took care of everything for me, visa, accommodation, transportation etc... I just head back to the US last month after teaching for almost a year in Phetchabun + 5 months in Chonburi. It was the greatest experience of my life so far, although I was so happy to get back home, I was also sad to leave Thailand! Guys, if you're thinking to go abroad, then go to Thailand and if you wanna teach english then definitely go with open book!

What would you improve about this program?
The orientation could be a bit longer, 1 day seems just a bit too short.

I decided to take a year off after my graduation, after some online researches about South East Asia, I finally chose Thailand as destination and Openbook for my first teaching abroad experience (it was also my first trip oversea alone). I was full of doubts about my ability for this adventure, especially in the last days before my departure, I was so stressed out that I kept questioning the whole trip and kept thinking to myself "what am I doing? why going so far, why not Mexico, Panama...??". But the doubt was completely gone as soon as I exited Bangkok airport, I was there finally, totally overwhelmed with a mix of excitement, fear of the unknown and joy! I will always remember the feeling of the heat hitting me as I walked out of the air-conditioned airport hall, from 60 F to 100F, that was it Bangkok, Thailand! The day after I met the full Openbook team, they welcomed me and took care of me right away, I knew at that time that I was in good hands and was going to enjoy this experience fully.
If you think about a similar adventure, don't overthink it and just do it! ;)

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
A grilled yellow worm (the big ones..) on my first night in Bangkok (kaosan rd). Not that bad actually but definitely not my type of snacks!
