Hope they do better than some of these private schools I've got grand kids that go to a school that advertises English in all classes and there's a sign when you drive in that says English only . They can barely hold a conversation

Some of the best teachers l have met did not have a degree for teaching but are very good with students. Not all teachrrs w

Looking on ajarn dot com you'll see literally hundreds of Filipinos looking for work as teachers. Most, judging by appearance I would not hire. Pretty much all the westerners I would not hire.

Pay 30 to 35,000 Baht which is the same salary offered 15 years ago and you are not going to get many people wanting to work for this type of money.

 

In my opinion, Teachers from the Philippines are great "Early Years" teachers" They are diligent and take the job seriously, probably because they are earning a lot more money than they could back home. I think that they are ok up to 4th year in Pratom (Primary School), but their English Skills are just not good enough to teach year 5 and above. This is a generalization and I have  met a few that are very good but most that I have met and worked with are not.

On the Subcontinent obviously, there there are as many English speakers as in the rest of the World.

Yeah.  You really want your child to speak English like a Bangladeshi curry stall waiter?

Just in case somebody reads this ........

Thais love cartoons and watch them daily for hours; specially kids to keep them quiet. Instead of voice-overing this cartoons let them run in their original version of Japanese and English.

 

Once the kiddies hit 10 years of age they are fluent in English and Japanese spoken and understanding English. 

Rocket science?

english is a language of the past

I think you meant French.   But as somebody else noted, your grammar is deficient so maybe you are illiterate anyway.
