Hi

Welcome to Nakhon!

There are about 150 farang in town. 70-80 teachers, plus others. To meet up with the other farangs go to Rock 99 at Bovorn Plaza on Rajadamnern Road. Plenty there Fri. and Sat. nights.

Where are you going to be based? Teaching?

Hi Sean

Thanks for the info.

I am planning on retiring rather than working.Although I may try my hand at teaching English to help the local school.

We are currently on Samui and are planning on moving in a year or so.

Where exactly are you ?

Do you teach ?

Regards, Martin

I live just outside of Nakhon town. I have been teaching science at a local high school for the past five years.

If you are planning to teach at a small rural school on a volunteer bassis, I think you might be in for a shock. Many Thai English teachers do not take kindly to foreigners comming in and teaching. There are quite a few schools who hire foreigners to teach English and other subjects, they are full time positions but with lots of time off. Might think of doing that to keep yourself occupied. I know of one or two others in the same situation.

Where in Nakhon do you intend to move?

Do you need proper teaching qualifications to teach ?

Po Sadet is only just out of town, my school is there. I live on a moo-baan about the same distance the other side of town (East) towards Paak Nakhon.

As for teaching, you generally need a degree in any subject (need not be in education). Though many teachers get jobs with only a tefl cert..

I will be arriving in Thailand in 2 weeks with a view to teach English. Nakorn Sri Thammarat is my favoured destination. I have a degree from the University of Sydney and a CELTA from International House in Sydney. I have enquired about several positions by e-mail, but have yet to receive any replies. Is it normal for schools to show no interest when applicants are outsideThailand? Will they show more interest when the enquiries come from within the country? Also, do you have to go to Bangkok to apply for the Teacher's License and Work Permit, or can it be done at one of the major centres in the South?

It does help if you are here. We generally try to find people who are already in Thailand and have been teaching here for a few years. Stability is of great importance. Teacher's licences seem to be on hold at the min. of ed.! They have told our school to forget about them for now. Work permit should be organised by the school.

Generally the town is quiet... Some English teaching opportunities are available..just keep plugging along. This is also Final Exam Time.. so the responses take a back burner..

Cheers
