Great experience with Kids English

The Kids English team were very helpful in my preparation to move to Thailand. They outlined what paperwork I was required to obtain and assisted me with my visa application. Kids English then provided an excellent training course upon my arrival to Thailand after quarantine. I learned a lot about Thai schools and culture and the course also included fun activities such as a cooking class, excursion to the historical park and a bbq night with karaoke! I have felt supported here since starting work and feel comfortable contacting KE when I have any questions or need anything.

Friendly and welcoming

Kids English really start of your experience in Thailand in the best way. The entire team are so welcoming and friendly, and the course is a lot of fun. They support you every step of the way and it was really helpful for me to know I had them there to give me advice on anything that might happen when settling in to a new environment. They gave great advice on what to expect when teaching in Thailand and they even help kick start your Thai language skills! I would recommend them to anyone looking to teach in Thailand.

Highly recommend

My experience with KidsEnglish is nothing but positive.

Employment is legal even for non-native speakers such as myself, so you don't have to worry about that.

The pre-departure guide they send you is very helpful. It covers all of the aspects - from documents and future expenses to culture tips and recommended clothes. Just take the time to read it carefully and you will be fine.

Their team walks you through the visa process, helps with all the required paperwork, assists with transfer, banking, accommodation, and provides support along the way.

In a nutshell, it's safe and transparent, and you get what you expect.

And their team is very kind and positive. They make you feel comfortable and less scared) I am very grateful for work they are doing.
Also they are always in touch 24/7 and ready to answer your questions and help you with everything 😊😊

Professional service

10 out of 10. Great service, always in touch, no fine print. Very nice and helpful people. All the people in stuff are very friendly, Matthew provided some reliable insights into the Thai life. All contracts and agreements are negotiated before signing, no playing around the bush. Also was surprised by safety standards - everything is safe, people are friendly, no petty crime. The finish-corse tour is a story of its own - team shows you ancient capital, and other places amusing places. Good stuff

Amazing Experience!

Kids English not only provides a great opportunity to jumpstart your career as a teacher in Thailand but also introduces you to the country's culture and puts you through a training that prepares you to face any challenges in terms of culture clash, work environment, and everyday life in the new environment. Very professional approach but also a super friendly atmosphere. The staff is extremely nice and helpful.

The school that hired me is located in Lamphun, a small town outside of Chiang Mai. I got a warm welcome and was swiftly introduced to the place by fellow teachers.

All in all, it's a truly fantastic experience!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Equip yourself with a lot of patience as the pace of life is a bit slower and people are more laid-back than in most other places.

Kids English

I would like to first mention what a great, well-connected program for a teaching experience in Northern Thailand! I found a great school in Lampang and was supported throughout my experience there. Whenever I had a question or concern, it was dealt with the same day and felt that if anything were to happen, they had my back. That support is everything and it can make or break an experience abroad. Not to mention, they were lovey individuals doing good for the people and students of Thailand. If I were to come back to Thailand, I would definitely come back to Kids English!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
I would say the most surprising thing I saw was all the smiles from everyone seeing me try to speak Thai and immerse deeply into the community I was living in.

Kids English Thailand

Matt and his team over at Kids English are brilliant! They are fully supportive from your first phone call, throughout the entire placement. They made the daunting prospect of moving country and starting a career as a teacher so easy and smooth. They continue to provide support with lesson planning, accommodation and any day to day general queries I may have.

If you are considering a teaching career abroad I can’t recommend Matt and Kids English enough, give them a ring and start your journey!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Organising flights, COE, visa and quarantine! Was definitely the most nerve-racking experience.
