International citizens who come to teach in Thailand do so mostly at private schools. International schools also hire often: for example, we work with an international school for Japanese expat children in Bangkok. Salaries in Thailand range from $700 a month to over $2,000, depending on your experience. Housing is usually not included with most contracts, and airfare reimbursement varies from position to position (from no coverage to full repayment of the cost of your return flights). Positions in government public schools have also become common, but these pay a little less than private options. The cost of living is really low - so even at the bottom of the pay scale, you can lead a modest but comfortable Thai life. However, you won’t be able to save up much unless you land a high-paying job that requires professional teaching certification. You should be wary of programs that demand a fee from you for getting you a teaching job in Thailand.
