Teaching is a great way to broaden your experiences. I’ve taught English in Thailand for half of the past 25 years or so and I can tell you it has enriched my life immensely…not the least of which is due to my wife, Nong, who is also a teacher. The first time I ever came to Thailand, I could not understand a thing. The language and the alphabet were so strange that nothing made any sense. The Thai alphabet has 44 consonants, 33 vowel sounds, tone markers and five tones. Vowels can be in front of, behind, above or below the consonant to which they refer. I loved every minute of it. It was, and still is, a challenge.
If you have ever though about teaching overseas, all you really need are a degree, a TESOL certificate, an enthusiastic attitude and a willingness to experience a new culture. Would you like a copy of my e-book ‘Introduction to Teaching Overseas’? I’ll be happy to send you one. Click on the TESOL course link above and scroll down on the page! Send me a comment if you have a problem getting to it.
