Teach and Travel

What's a Teach and Travel Program?

Teaching abroad is a great way to experience a new culture while also gaining valuable teaching experience. For our Teach in Thailand program, our participants love that they have the chance to experience Thai culture, the sights, the food, and the lifestyle while helping to improve the language skills of local students and promoting cultural exchange in the school and community.


Our teaching placements include accommodation for the full duration of the program, and you’re offered a stipend from your school. School placements are assigned before you leave Canada, so you’ll know exactly where you’re going to be teaching, what age the students will be, and where you’ll be living before you arrive in Thailand. You can start your teaching adventure in either Bangkok or Chiang Mai and take part in a week-long orientation that helps you prepare for your new role. Your orientation week also includes some local excursions to help you see the city and get used to your new surroundings before you start working.


Teaching in Thailand is a great opportunity to meet new people while gaining some great work experience. We take care of your placement and arrange all the details while you get ready to have a meaningful teaching experience in one of the worlds most beloved destinations.
