When is the best time to do a course?
Positions for TEFL teachers in Thailand are available throughout the year. Government run schools regularly hire for year long contracts 3 times a year. May/June September/October and February/March. In addition, many of these year long government contractual positions open mid-year due to unforeseen circumstances. Private language schools and institutes generally hire mid-semester as this is the time most students choose to do additional studies. International programs on the other hand will follow the western school calendar beginning in August/September for the first semester, January for the second and June/July for the summer programs. In addition, many other countries follow slightly different calendars as well.
