Echo English currently has 12 positions available in the same English Program, within a school in the capital of the province Chanthaburi.

Chanthaburi is a coastal province, about four hours from Bangkok. This is a great location, with a lovely community of foreign teachers, and is about 20 minutes to the beach. The school is located in the capital of the province and so is a large town, with restaurants and markets.

The teachers placed at this school will be working alongside other teachers on the school’s English program and there are opportunities to teach subjects in addition to English. The children at the school are aged between 4 – 11/12 years of age. There is a curriculum and resources are provided.

This position begins in mid May 2017.

Prior to the start of the term, Echo English runs two programs to further prepare our teachers for their role as a teacher in Thailand. Teachers have two options:


Option 1: 3 day TEFL + Induction + Chanthaburi teaching position (optional)

The 3 day TEFL + Induction + Chanthaburi teaching position is a program for teachers who are looking for further preparation before they start teaching in Chanthaburi. This is held in a hotel in Bangkok, prior to the start date of the school, with hotel check in on May 7, 2017. This program is only open for teachers who already hold a TEFL certificate, and covers aspect of teaching specific to Thai schools.

The 3 day TEFL covers Thai culture, managing a classroom, games and activities that work well in schools here and we share our experiences of living and working in Thailand, so you have an idea of what to expect. There is also an hour of Thai lessons each day, which is taught in a similar style as you’ll be teaching in a school. These lessons will give you some beginner Thai phrases so you can introduce yourself, order food and count. The course is interactive and a great way to get to know other teachers who will also be working in Thailand.
