“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.”

OEG Teach in Thailand is such an amazing program! My school placement was perfect for me. I got to make great friends, teach really sweet kids all week, and have weekend adventures around Thailand. Plus it was always great knowing that OEG was there to help and support me if I had any problems.

“My experience in Thailand was absolutely incredible. It completely transformed my life and the way that I see both myself and the world. Living and working in a culture so different from my own and building relationships with people who have had extremely different life experiences than me was arguably the greatest education I have ever received. In fact, one of my favorite parts of living in Thailand was that I learned something new every single day. Whether it was a new word in the Thai language, a fact about the history of Thailand, a lesson that taught me how to be a better educator, or something personal about myself, there was always something new for me to learn. I feel as though my experience in Thailand helped me to discover the best version of myself. It taught me about bravery, empathy, authenticity, trust, and kindness.”
