Negativity About English Teachers In Thailand On Here?

Recommended Posts

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.

Because many people(NOT ALL) on this forum are very unhappy with their lives. They live here for any of several reasons. They didn't plan for the future and in a small village in Thailand is the only place they can afford to live. 2) They couldn't find a woman in their own country, so they come here and use their money to get and keep a woman and she and her family are a constant drain on his finances. 3) Some people are just hateful and bitter and criticize anything and everything they can. And there are some people on this forum that can only feel good about themselves if they are belittling someone else.

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

I`ve really noticed this, the Issan forum especially. So many people simply not happy with "their lot." They deal with this by trying to belittle others and drag them down also.

I think the sight of a normal 22 year old having the time of his life teaching is almost sickening to some fat old guy who feels trapped in a foreign country, with nothing but death to look forward to.
