Exceptional Thailand Program Experience with Outstanding Support from Jaemi!

I recently had the pleasure of participating in the Thailand program offered by Fewer Things Ltd, and I cannot express how impressed I am with the entire experience, especially with the invaluable assistance provided by Jaemi.

From the outset, the program was meticulously organized, offering a perfect blend of cultural immersion, professional development, and personal growth. The itinerary was well thought out, allowing us to explore the beauty of Thailand while also engaging in meaningful activities that enriched our understanding of the local culture.

What truly set this program apart was the exceptional support and guidance offered by Jaemi. His expertise, coupled with genuine enthusiasm, made a significant difference in my experience. Jaemi was not only knowledgeable about the intricacies of the Thai culture and customs but also went above and beyond to ensure that each participant felt comfortable and had their individual needs met.

A year in Thailand

I signed up to teach in Thailand with The Fewer Things in May 2021. Right from my initial application Jaemi was really helpful and provided me with all the information I needed to feel confident in moving abroad. Due to covid there was additional paperwork and requirements but I was fully supported throughout the process of moving to Thailand. TFT group chat was really good for getting to know the other applicants and helping each other with the application process. In October 2021 I moved to Thailand, first teaching at a school outside Bangkok for a semester and then in Isaan for a second semester. I loved the teaching, the workload was very manageable and I was well supported by the other teachers and the local agency staff in my region. When not at school, I spent my weekends travelling with other TFT applicants to locations all over Thailand. I would definitely recommend TFT teach abroad programs both to people who have never taught abroad before and aswell as those who have. TFT clubhouse is an additional bonus to an already brilliant program and I look forward to teaching abroad with TFT again in the future.

  • Experience life in an area of Thailand you wouldn't normally visit
  • Perfect for first time teachers

Join The Fewer Things!

I wanted to start a career in international teaching, but I was pretty nervous and did not know where to begin. I found The Fewer Things early 2023, and ended up flying to Thailand in October 2023.

I was placed in Isan, which is more laid back than the other major cities. My students are so sweet and make my day so exciting and are always giving me something to smile about. It’s nice to see a slower side of Thailand and to build a bond with the locals!

The Fewer Things is seriously a saving grace. I am so happy I signed up with them, they are always around to assist you with any problems within their scope, and if needed, they connect you to someone that can help. They help you with absolutely everything leading up to flying out, and then they’re also around to support you after you’ve arrived. Jaemi is always ready to have a phone call if you need to chat about anything, even if it’s just about traveling nerves! He is constantly checking on you to make sure you’re doing alright and asking if you need anything or would like to talk, which is very comforting being so far away from home!

The Clubhouse is also an insanely cool opportunity and I am currently discussing my next move with Jaemi and TFT because I wouldn’t want to travel and teach with anyone else! I definitely recommend TFT to anyone, no matter what your travel experience is. They are incredibly supportive and helpful and it’s really nice to have them while you are traveling the world. Thanks TFT!

Unforgettable experience in rural Thailand

Jaemi and The Fewer Things team were super helpful with all the documents and advice needed for moving out to Thailand. I did one semester teaching from October 2021 in Chaiyaphum which is a lovely central Thailand town with lots to do!

The teaching experience is invaluable and you really get to form friendships with students and fellow teachers. In my placement, I had around 10 other teacher from the UK based in Chaiyaphum, and we all bonded and planned travels together during long weekends and at the end of the semester. The Fewer Things programme is really great because you get put in contact with teachers who are in different areas of Thailand to you, so you can arrange to meet up and travel to different towns.

I definitely recommend this supportive programme if you're looking to gain career experience, travel and meet lots of new people!

  • Great support and advice from The Fewer Things
  • Lots of opportunities to travel
  • Meet lots of new friends

TFT Thailand

I had been toying with the idea of teaching abroad for a few years with no direction on how to make it happen. I stumbled across The Fewer Things on Instagram and I’m so thankful I did!

It can be a daunting process moving to a new country however The Fewer Things helped ease the process from start to finish. Jaemi, Molly and Will will inform you well in advance about vaccinations, insurance and documents that you need to prepare before you move abroad. They also check in regularly on WhatsApp which is lovely when you’re so far from home.

What I particularly liked about working in Thailand through The Fewer Things, is that you can be based in a location that is far different from the Thailand you see on social media. I am based in Isan in north east Thailand. It has been wonderful immersing in this unique culture in a part of the world that I probably never would have visited unless I was placed here. There is a good work life balance and the students here are a joy to work with. Thai people are so friendly and welcoming, and I have always felt safe and happy since moving here.

TFT Teaching Experience

Living and teaching in Thailand was made so easy by the team at TFT. From initial application to beginning placement, there has been constant communication from Jaemi and the team. Even three months in, Jaemi continues to keep in touch and has been incredibly helpful when issues arose within the placement, making sure everything is resolved swiftly and easily.

I applied with a group of friends and Jaemi made sure that we were placed together, ensuring all of our preferences were considered. Despite our rural location, we have loved experiencing authentic Thai culture, alongside the other TFT teachers within our placement. We also thoroughly enjoy travelling, so we aim to explore Thailand on our weekends, making the most out of our free time and occasional long weekends!

I would definitely recommend teaching in Thailand and TFT as a company 😁

  • Excellent support and advice throughout
  • Experience a new culture authentically
  • Great way to travel, work and meet new people
  • Poor communication and support from MediaKids
  • Some placements are quite far from Bangkok, which makes it difficult to travel at weekends (especially as no long holidays during a semester)

TFT - Teaching in Thailand

I am really enjoying my time teaching in Thailand, it has been such a unique experience and I have learnt so much already. Since day one Jaemi has been super helpful with any queries or issues and I have felt supported throughout my experience. I applied with a group of friends and Jaemi made sure it was possible for us to all be placed together.
Being placed in a rural area was quite daunting, however, I have loved living in Maha Sarakham and it is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in authentic Thai culture. A huge benefit of TFT was the group chat before we arrived as it gave everyone an opportunity to get to know each other. I would highly recommend this program if you are wanting to travel and teach!

  • Unique Thai Experience
  • Time to travel
  • Lots of support from TFT

TFT Thailand Experience

From the moment I spoke to Jaemi (programmes director) I was instantly convinced to join the Thailand programme. The whole TFT team has been nothing but supportive and helpful from pre-departure to post. From the group chat with other teachers, visa and living in Thailand guides, to constant checking in after moving. The move to Thailand definitely felt easier knowing there was a team of people who will have my back and that I can rely on.

Overall, it truly is an authentic experience I couldn’t recommend enough, the local community, school and students are beyond amazing.
