Dream turned into reality- I grew up wanting to be a teacher and wanting to see the world. I never expected to find this company and be able to teach in Thailand. The help getting placed and the process of moving was a breeze with all the help given.
There comes a time when you realize that you have to go outside of your comfort zone because that is when you will grow the most as a person. I can say without a doubt it was the most changing experience so far in my life."
Journey to Teach Abroad completely set this whole experience up for me! It was so easy, I spoke to Adam and he was very helpful and easy to talk to. I was put in touch with a Thai Lady who I would be working for. She is also lovely!
Teaching abroad has provided me with so many unforgettable and rewarding opportunities. Never having thought about teaching abroad, J2 played such an important role in the whole process. The school I was placed at could not have been better.
1. What are the qualifications to teach abroad?
It's simple. All you need is a bachelor's degree & a passport from a native English speaking country. Don't worry if you have no teaching or traveling experience. It's not required!
2. I didn't study English nor do I have plans to become a teacher. Am I still eligible?
Yes. You don't need an English degree or the desire to become a professional teacher to teach abroad. At J2, we see teaching abroad as a short-term experience, rather than a career. Everyone is on their own path & a teaching abroad experience fits into it in the way you want it to :)
3. Is a TEFL Certification required to teach in Thailand?
No, a TEFL Certification is not required, though it's recommended. Our partnered Thailand education agencies will provide free teacher training before your 1st day of class and our J2 team experts are happy to recommend the best fitting TEFL course that fits your needs if interested.
4. I went to college for 4 years and I want to get a job right after I graduate. Why should I teach abroad?
Now's the perfect time! This is a short-term “real world experience” that employers value deeply. And your unique story will demonstrate cultural awareness, communication, leadership, and critical thinking.
