    yes, but you can also get a two day weekend course. But if a degree is the minimum requirement in LoS then its academic.

    ^Yeah, but they are selling tefler courses, they might be a bit biased?
    Sadly, if you can walk and your white you will be able to get a job teaching english in Thailand, if you can walk and your black you will find it a bit harder, if you are able to use a wheelchair and breath you still have a good chance of getting a teaching job in Thailand, the standards are pretty low as is the pay.

    It's a piece of piss getting a job in Bangkok without a degree at a decent school. I've done it myself for years and so have about 70% of all Teflers there - no problems whatsoever.

    As for 'being a good teacher because you have a degree' that is even more bollocks. Since when did a degree in Physics make one a good language teacher?

    ^There is a lot of difference between 25,000baht per month and 100,000baht per month, one includes a degree, a legally obtained work permit and a lot more money, the other, well, as I posted earlier, if you are white and breathing you can get a teaching job in Thailand.

    This has all been cussed and discussed. DD's comments are valid. Why you ask? I have been on the upper end teaching here in Thailand for over 10 years.

    Do a few teachers fall through the cracks? Sure, but the gap gets closer and closer every year. Personally, in the upper end I have yet to see a fake...

    My own personal experience has shown that it is damn tough even to be hired. Try to be a fake in the bigger schools and, personally I do not think a person would make it through the process. A minute percent perhaps.

    Having said that does a qualified teacher make a good citizen in Thailand? Only time will tell on this issue.

    Good luch with your choice...
