TFT - Thailand Programme

The Fewer Things gave me phenomenal support throughout the job placement period during the pandemic. Even during covid, this agency have been very accommodating in finding me a suitable location based on my preferences. Jaemi will work with you to find and check the visa application, quarantine, flights and insurance to ensure a smooth transition to Thailand. The experience so far has been amazing, it is such a blessing to teach and guide Thai students in such a beautiful part of the world. The Thai people are very kind, relaxed and happy people and I am so glad I made the decision to work as an English teacher overseas

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
A smile goes a very long way in Thailand. If you don’t understand what some people are saying or how to communicate, just smile and try your best. The Thai people are very friendly and will appreciate the fact you tried to even speak Thai! AC is a life saver out here too

Every day was completely different!

I flew out to teach in Thailand in the midst of the pandemic, and I'm so so glad I did. I was looking for an experience that would excite me and push me out of my comfort zone and teaching in Thailand definitely ticked both of those boxes! The teaching was super chill and fun, and every day really was completely different so it was never boring. I've met wonderful people from all over the world whilst teaching here and had so many new experiences, from living in a rural Thai village to swimming in waterfalls and hiking to hidden beaches. I would urge anyone to think about coming to live and teach abroad and I couldn't have chosen a better company to go with. The Fewer Things have been fantastic every step of the way, I came out here with my boyfriend and they were really accommodating to us as a couple. They were really helpful in organising so we could go out together, and found a placement for the two of us in the same school, so they are brilliant whether you want to travel solo or with a partner/friend. Jaemi has been great and has checked in on us regularly whilst in Thailand, he goes above and beyond to ensure your move to living and teaching in Thailand is smooth and stress free, I can't recommend the fewer things enough.
If you're thinking of coming out here, definitely do it!

What was your funniest moment?
When we saw the locals riding down the river rapids on rubber rings in our little village one weekend and thought it looked fun so we joined in. We were fully clothed, and got absolutely drenched and we did come away with a few little scrapes but it was definitely worth it and embarrassing but pretty funny slipping and falling in the currents and having to be helped up by the local kids who were half my size!

Moving to Thailand During Covid

After being stuck in England during a pandemic and being furloughed, I was looking for a new adventure and came across The Fewer Things (TFT). TFT were so helpful throughout the process of getting out here, taking me step-by-step all the documents and processes I need to completed to get to Thailand. They created group chats with other teachers who were coming out here so we could get to know each other and to provide information and guidance regarding things we needed to do. Overall, TFT were, and continue to be, extremely helpful throughout and are always available if you have questions or concerned. I can't recommend them highly enough!

Getting to Thailand during covid

I decided to apply for The Fewer things in December 2020 and arrived in Thailand just a few weeks ago. The Fewer Things were there every step of the way! Preparing beforehand (and all the extra paperwork due to covid), during travel and once here. Can’t thank them enough for the endless support. The tefl qualification was easy to follow through online and feel prepared ready to teach for my first day this coming week in Prachinburi (the most friendly town!). I had the opportunity to speak to other teachers before travelling via WhatsApp and made friends who were experiencing the same things, alongside helping each other out. I highly recommend The Fewer Things to anyone who wants to have a fantastic tefl experience.

The best support every step of the way

The Fewer Things (TFT) has undoubtedly given me the opportunity of a lifetime. As a graduate of Law this opportunity excited me as I wanted to be able to explore and immerse myself in a different culture before I had to settle down to the usual 9-5 job. TFT has been incredibly supportive and been in constant contact with me since I first applied at least 9 months ago! In particular, their help became essential when went into a global pandemic, but I was reassured of ever step I had to take and they were there to reply to any queries I had within hours. I am now teaching in a school in Thailand and my colleagues could not be any nicer! The lifestyle here is such a change, but a blessing to me. TFT has really allowed me to appreciate the fewer things in life and has provided me with an unforgettable experience!

Nearly finished my first week!

I am writing this review on my first Thursday at the school. I travelled with my girlfriend to a school in the north-eastern Thailand and it has been everything we expected and more. TheFewerThings have been really helpful to us every step of the way and helped make all the admin much easier!

Support from Jaemi was always available, from initial interview throughout the travelling and in school, and the 2-week quarantine feels like a lifetime ago. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone thinking about travelling or teaching abroad!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take plenty of pictures! Thai people are always at it so you may as well join in too.

Getting to Thailand During COVID

2020 has been the year to redefine 'normal' for everyone. I was meant to be starting grad school this fall, but due to COVID, elected to defer. Deferring, however, did not mean I wanted to continue working at the same boring job I'd been at, so I set out to find something different, and that's when I stumbled across TFT. Teaching abroad sounded exactly like something I'd love to do and is a fantastic way to round out an otherwise rather awful year. TFT spoke to me more than other programs because it was so small and seemed more personal, and it's hard to beat the cost of the TEFL course you get going through this program!

I managed to sneak in and get one of the last available spots in the program. Jaemi was incredibly responsive as I applied to TFT (reached out within days of having submitted my application), worked with me through the application process, and then worked with me through the visa process that has changed due to COVID. Any questions I had that Jaemi didn't know the immediate answer to, he helped me navigate or found the answer another way. The biggest struggle for me personally was trying to schedule a COVID test that would get me results 72 hours prior to travel (as is now required to fly to Thailand). I'm not from an area with an international airport, so I was worried that the extra travel needed to get to that airport would cut my 72 hour travel window too close, and Jaemi suggested heading to the city I'd fly internationally from a few days early to get tested there. This greatly reduced my stress during the process, and now I'm a week into mandatory quarantine in Thailand!

There's also a group chat for TFT teachers all going to Thailand, and this allowed me to meet and chat with fellow teachers prior to arrival and during the quarantine process. This was also great as you have others you can chat with going through the same things as you, so you can share ideas for how to get through each application checkpoint, what to pack, etc. TFT and Jaemi have continued to check in while here, and I look forward to finally getting out to teach. Could not recommend TFT enough!

The best time in Thailand!

I found TFT through Instagram back in 2018, I applied very early on in the year (a year ahead of departure) and was in constant contact with them through out the whole online TEFL course and before arriving here in Thailand. The support I received was excellent and it was great to meet the other teachers in a WhatsApp group before we left, I live close by to lot of the other teachers which is nice.

I was placed in the Northeast of Thailand, where most of the placements are I believe, I was attracted by this placement as I did not want to live in a big city or do a big commute, especially in this heat! I love it here, there is a very nice community of locals and other foreign teachers, It is quiet but it Is not too far from Bangkok, so sometimes we go there on the weekends or if we get a national holiday. The teaching is very fun and relaxed, we play lot of games!

I would recommend this placement to anyone who is wanting a relaxed life and also eased in to living in a new country. TFT answer all of my questions via email or WhatsApp even over a year after signing up.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
I lost my phone when I first got here and had to borrow money to get a new one! So make sure you have some extra money aside
