Unforgettable adventure!

I recently completed my first teaching assignment abroad with Openbook Teachers, and I couldn't be happier with my experience in Thailand. From the very beginning, the agency provided exceptional support, guiding me through every step of the process. They helped with everything from visa applications to finding accommodation, making the transition to a new country smooth and stress-free.

Teaching in Thailand has been a life-changing experience. The local students are eager to learn and incredibly respectful, making each day in the classroom rewarding. The school I was placed in has a supportive environment, and my colleagues have been welcoming and helpful, ensuring I never felt out of place.

The cultural exchange has been invaluable. Living in Thailand has allowed me to immerse myself in a new culture, try amazing food, and travel to stunning locations on weekends and holidays. The agency also organized several meet-ups and events, helping me connect with other teachers and build a supportive network.

Overall, I highly recommend Openbook Teachers for anyone considering teaching abroad. Their professionalism, support, and dedication to their teachers are unmatched. This experience has not only enhanced my teaching skills but also enriched my life in ways I never imagined.

My Time with Openbook

Openbook were very helpful with securing me a job at a fantastic school, the hiring process was very smooth.

Throughout my time with them they were always ready to help me if I needed them, but did not interfere once with my teaching, allowing me to build a strong relationship with the school I was placed at and grow as a teacher.
I enjoyed dealing with everyone at Openbook on a personal level, and I am thankful for everything they have done for me. It is nice to be leaving them amicably and on good terms.

"Growing with Openbook: A Journey of Patience and Adaptability"

I have worked with Openbook Teachers for several years now and have enjoyed my time with them immensely. I have grown a lot as a teacher with their guidance into the world of teaching in Thailand. Openbook is a wonderful agency, filled with bright and enthusiastic staff. The staff of Openbook guide you in the ways of teaching and the processes in Thailand, which in turn teach everyone two important attributes: Patience and adaptability. During my time with Openbook, I have not only developed my teaching skills but also learned to navigate the unique cultural and educational landscape of Thailand. The staff's unwavering support and dedication have made a significant impact on my professional journey.

My Journey with Openbook Agency in Thailand

Traveling 6,000km and getting dropped in a different part of the world is always risky and scary. But Openbook made efforts to create a safe environment for me, from start till today.

I especially want to say my words of appreciation for the Visa team. They were extremely professional, and despite different hurdles with the documents, they managed to do everything on time, stayed in touch with me, explained things to me, guided me.

I'm loving the experience! And from what I've heard about other agencies, Openbook may probably be the most drama-free, scam-free and fair agency here in Thailand.

There are some things to work on, however. Communication and transparency with employees is one of them. Otherwise, everything is good

Exceptional Experience

I was introduced to Openbook by a friend, and over the past year and a half, my experience with them has been exceptional. I highly recommend Openbook to anyone seeking teaching opportunities in Thailand. My time with the company has been rewarding, and I'm grateful for the chance to have worked alongside such a supportive team. They helped with relocation and settling in, as well as navigating visa and work permit processes. The team's dedication and assistance were invaluable. I must extend a special thank you to the manager at Openbook, she is the absolute best. She consistently went above and beyond to help when I had questions or needed help. Without hesitation, I recommend Openbook to all aspiring teachers

Great for a first teaching experience in Thailand

Landed in Thailand (Phuket) on 25th february 2020, my initial plan was to visit the south for a few weeks then fly to Vietnam before heading back to Ireland around april. Then covid hit and despite anyone advice I decided to stay, I just though it would be over within 2-3 months...but.. A few weeks later every country had shut down, I was voluntarily stranded but was not really worry as I had enough funds to live in Thailand . Eventually in june I had to find a job as my funds were gone so ended up teaching english as many other travelers had recommended me, it was basically my only option anyway. I found a great school in a town 2 hours from Bangkok with Openbook where I taugh english until april 2021. It has been a rewarding experience, allowing me to discover a new career in the teaching world which I plan to continue at the end of the year in Vietnam this time.Openbook team organised my placement, my visa, accommodation, my moped and even took the time to cheer me up (especially Jonathon) when I needed a boost at the very beginning while my confidence was near null. I never taugh before so was quite nervous at first but I love teaching now and during these few months I actually learned more than I taught.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would rent a house instead of apartment, I realized a few weeks before leaving that I could rent out get a small house with 2 bedrooms, kitchen and garden for almost the same price as my studio flat. Buying a 2nd hand bike can also be worth it if you stay for a year or more rather than renting one for 2000 BATH (50 euros) a month, as you can get a decent bike for 12-15k BATH (300-400 euros).

Perfect for a gap year or a 1st time in Thailand

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!
