When I first found Kids English I was attracted by the price of the program and the reviews from past teachers!
Once we had go to the point where they were offering me teaching positions I had the choice between large cities or semi rural locations. I asked for the pros and cons of both and then went for a semi rural location.
I did this because Kids English said that the relationships I would build with the members of the community, my collogues at school and my students.
This has turned out to be 100% true! I have made such great friend with the Thai people I work with and the people in my community.
Every week I am invited to do something, be it a wedding or a trip to a national park or simply going for dinner. There isn't a moment that goes by where I don't have something to do at the weekend.
In contrast to people I meet during training who have gone to larger cities they haven't once been taken anywhere by their Thai collogues or friends.
I am thoroughly enjoying being in a semi rural area where everything is cheap, authentic and I never have a dull day!
