Negativity About English Teachers In Thailand On Here?

356 posts in this topic

There seems to be a lot of negative comments on here about English teachers in Thailand.

Personaly i think it's commendable and rewarding to teach in a foreign country, I intend to try it myself at some point in my future.

I don't understand the negativity on here, would someone care to enlighten me.

Thanks

Many are not really qualified, oh but we all know you don't have to be to be a great teacher right. Many do it just as a way to stay and enjoy themselves here and do not really care much about what they are actually doing, and in some cases that is more harm than good. They will tell you how much the School and kids love them but then move onto another one within a few months, or even weeks. If they were doing a good job how come the Thai kids are so poor in English, sure the education system is to blame, but then 'teachers' with crappy qualifications and the wrong motives hardly help matters. There are some good ones, but far more bad 'uns.

Demand out weighs supply....simple.

a restaurant owner told me he dont like backpackers and teachers. btw he seems to be offended at me for ordering a promotion meal with just mineral water instead of the typical sugary beverages or alcohol and he is assuming me to be either a backpacker or a teacher. eventually i got really pissed off and did a stupid move by giving him a 1000 baht note for a 200 baht meal and asked him to keep the change
