|Teaching In Thailand Being a international school teacher in Thailand can be a great career with salaries in the range of $2,500 to $6,000 per month, or you could become a TEFLer teaching English with a salary range of 350-600 pounds per month, although with many teaching jobs it could be worth doing a TEFL course even if no experience is necessary, but will teaching students fulfil your overseas jobs yearnings? Is a English language teaching job something you really want to do? Can you teach English?|

Teaching in Buri Ram
Does anyone have any first hand experience of teaching in Buri Ram?
I am looking to move the the Ram this year but have no idea as to what are the good schools to apply to etc.
Any info greatly appreciated.

I worked in Surin in the local high school and I can tell you it wasn't serious teaching. The classes were up to 50 students and we met only once a week. On top of that, I had 22 hours a week. It was just a major depressing headache. They aren't realistic about educating students in my opinion. To be honest, it was just a joke. Oh, an in the end half of the students failed yet the school wanted me to pass them. It was the first time in Thailand, I played with grades to satisfy the Thais. I completely regret it. Anyways, I wouldn't recommend it if you are interested in really teaching. You will be babysitting rather than teaching most of the time. If you don't care about teaching and don't mind screwing around all day, it's a way to get a visa. Most primary and secondary schools in Esarn are looking for teachers because the ones they get don't stay long.
Another idea is to go to a university. If you go to Buriram Rajabhat University, it should be better as it has been around for some time. They should have worked through some of the problems and have good materials and support for you. Still, you will find that in Esarn most of the students are quite weak and the culture in Esarn is not one which encourages the students to work very hard. Esarn is even more laid back than other parts of Thailand. You probably will find that students often miss class and even teachers miss class. At least this is what I found working in Surin and for a term in Srisaket in a college there.
I moved up to Esarn to be with my family but it turned out to be a very bad mistake. Now I am looking for something else. I had a great attitude everywhere I worked prior to coming here but this place really got to me.

I've knocked the teaching in down here in Ban Phe.
As soon as she could the English teacher (Thai) left it all up to me and didn't turn up half the time.
