As I write, I’m sitting at a guest house in Krabi Town waiting for a ferry to Koh Lanta on the first day of our three month summer vacation. It’s very hard to believe that we have two semesters at ABAC and 8 months in Thailand behind us already.

Some Other Interesting Job Opportunities
We’ve been applying to a ton of jobs and this week were presented with two very interesting opportunities:
Thailand Teaching Interview #2
We had another interview this week with a company called Teach to Travel. We were introduced to them by the company we took our TEFL course through and have been going back and forth with them for quite a while about possibly job opportunities.
Thailand Teaching Interview #1
I’ve started to get back into the job search, and even I know it’s still probably way too early, I just want to stay on top of it just in case anything comes up. Right now, most schools are still filling positions for the semester starting with May, but as long as the posts don’t say May specifically, I’ll still apply. And, I guess it’s paying off because I just had my first interview.
Starting the TEFL
The first thing we did after deciding we want to go to Thailand to teach English was look into the job situation there. From what we’ve read on various websites, getting a job in Thailand is fairly easy, but having a TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) certificate not only increase your chances but also could increase your pay. After hearing/reading this, we knew this would be a must-do.
