Your decision to work and teach in Myanmar will have an enormous impact on the lives of the people and the future of the country. Teachers typically earn from £600 - 900 per month which is a great amount to live from compared to the cost of living.

Placements are typically away from big city life and designed to give you a more authentic Thai experience (Central, North and Northeastern placements). All of our placements have a social aspect and you can expect to work/live with other teachers. There are local bars, restaurants, clubs and gyms in all of the locations.  We work with English curriculum providers and schools directly in Thailand to ensure applicants have a safe, smooth transition into life there.


Our team will be with you from the start of your application process all the way down to booking the best flight. We've got your back in any scenario and will be able to offer valuable advice and guidance when needed.

The teaching is exciting, engaging and leaves you wondering why you didn't apply sooner, you will be placed in a well established school. We cater the experience as close to your needs as possible, so let us know if you are looking to boost your teaching experience, add to your CV or looking to tick off as many things on your bucket list as possible. 


Have a look below at the package and how to apply.

How It Works

What's Included again?

Already have a TEFL?


Please tell us if you are an already qualified TEFL teacher, we can fast track your application and the programme fee will be considerably lower. If you're an experienced or already qualified teacher you could expect to earn more money too. 



You will receive a housing allowance each month and in most cases this is enough to cover your housing cost fully. We'll help you get set up with a place once in Thailand and you may even find yourself living with some of the other teachers you meet during orientation or once in the group chats! 

Typically the accommodation is very basic, but a good standard for Thailand and Asia in general. You will be required to put down a deposit of around £70 which will be paid back to you when moving out. You will also need to pay for some utilities such as electricity which is very cheap at around £15-20 per month.

Other financials


Other financial aspects have to be taken in to account when accepting your offer onto the programme such as: visa cost, criminal record check, degree authentication, flight and insurance costs along with spending money and initial rent deposit. We estimate the average total spend to be around £1800-2200. The application process over all will take around 6 months or longer depending on when you apply, so there is plenty of time to save and the cost will be spread out over a long period. 

Please note: During Covid times, there are often some changes in policies or restrictions in Thailand, which could mean you have to pay extra costs for Covid tests etc. It is best to over estimate your savings. We will of course be keeping you updated in good time.

Friends & Couples


What better way to come on a crazy adventure to Thailand than signing up with your other half or group of friends, please let us know when applying if you are part of a group or couple. We can place you together in the same school/city and you can start your new adventure together!


Larger groups are also welcome to apply, but please note you may have split up into smaller groups for placements, as quite often schools in Thailand do not find it desirable to hire a group of friends together.

Why Thailand?

Out of all the countries to choose from, why choose Thailand?

  • Good salaries and a significantly low cost of living

  • A great introduction to teaching abroad

  • Heaps of travelling time during the school and public holidays!

  • Escape from typical 9 til' 5 life

Thailand has a lot to offer for everyone! Paired together with The Fewer Things team you will hit the ground running and be able to fully immerse your self in Thai culture whilst progressing in your teaching career and gaining invaluable experience
