“From the moment we set foot in Thailand, we ran into problems with our credit card and were stuck in Suvarnabhumi Airport! We called OEG and they literally dropped everything to come and collect us. If we had any doubts about whether we had chosen the correct organization to teach in Thailand or not, they were wiped away in an instant. We always tell people that OEG was there to support us from day 1, and continue to do so up until today as OEG alumnus.
Our 1 year program with OEG really gave us a strong foundation to gain valuable teaching experience, as well as navigating all the challenges of living in Thailand. Once we completed the OEG program, we were able to use that experience to apply to other schools in Thailand, and are currently teaching in our 2nd year at a private girls school.”

"My experience teaching in Thailand was hands down the best year of my life! I initially signed up to teach abroad for only one term, but ended up staying longer because I completely fell in love with the students, culture, and beauty of Thailand. Moving to Thailand was a big step out of my comfort zone, but all of the OEG staff was so welcoming and really eased my nerves upon arrival. I learned so much at orientation and ended up meeting some of my best friends along the way! I could not have done it without OEG. Living in Thailand was one of the most rewarding and amazing opportunities I have ever had. If you are even halfway considering it, I say go for it! You only regret the chances you didn’t take. I am sure you will appreciate the “mai pen rai” [don’t worry] way of living as much as I did. From the incredible food, kind people, and breathtaking scenery – it’s impossible to not fall in love with Thailand! "

“Your time in Thailand you will get out what you put into it. I am thankful for my relationships with my students and they are one of the biggest things I got out of my time teaching.
My time in Thailand helped set me up for success in my current role. Living and working in a small rural part of Thailand meant I adapted to life in Asia more quickly. I became fluent in body language and hand gestures when speaking with locals. Currently I am a primary caretaker for Sun Bear cubs in Borneo. I am in an even more rural part of the world but I felt prepared coming from Phusang. My schedule and my resources have constantly fluctuated here in Indonesia but teaching in a Thai school helped me learn to embrace adaptability and flexibility. Forming relationships with my students helped me learn that bonds could be formed regardless of languages, and I have connected with many of the local staff here and we speak very little of each other’s language.”
