Just do it!
Submitted by Alexia de Souza - Sukhothai Thailand | August 05, 2016
If you are reading this review, chances are you have been mulling over the idea of travelling to Thailand to become a teacher. I did the exact same thing two and a half months ago, from my desk at my job. That I hated. I wanted an opportunity to see the world and give back, starting with Thailand.
I type this from my new home in Sukhothai, Thailand. I came home from work today after spending the most fulfilling day with kids that melt my heart. It hasn't been completely smooth sailing, a few challenges have been thrown my way but there has never been a single moment of regret. Ever.
I went through TravelBud, after doing extensive research to validate that it isn't a scam (it isn't - I can vouch for it now). I am excited to wake up each day in a beautiful country, eat amazing food, communicate (or try to) with great people and teach little souls some English.
The transition to this country and finding my Thai-ness has been pretty easy, with the help of Travelbud and their partners. Your first month of training will be amazing, jam-packed with activities with new friends from around the world.
All I can tell you is - Just do it. You will regret the things in life that you didn't do. Take a leap of faith and venture into the unknown. It will be amazing!
My two months in Thailand
Submitted by Francois Kuhn - Trang Thailand | May 17, 2016
My experience in Thailand has been wonderful so far. It started in Hua Hin where we did the TEFL course. It was hard work but also so much fun. I loved so many like minded people from all over the world and making lifetime friendships. I will never forget my time in Hua Hin
My friends and I were placed in a Trang. A small "city" in the south of Thailand. I've only been here for a short while but I love it already. There are so many beautiful mountains all round and awesome secluded beaches not too far away. Trang has all the awesome sights other tourist places have minus the tourists, ensuring a proper Thai experience.
I love what I am doing and I love being in Thailand
2016 Tesol experience with Travelbud
Submitted by Megon Roos - Huai Yot Thailand | May 13, 2016
Myself, my boyfriend and both our best friends embark on this amazing Journey. We left South-Africa the end of March and spent the month in Hua Hin for our TESOL course. It really was a action packed filled 4 weeks, first week was cultural orientation and the other 3 weeks was in class training, 120 hours, where they prepared us to be the best teachers and where we also got practical experience presenting our lessons to other class mates and got critical feedback and where we had to improve upon. We also got to teach two days at english camp for Thai kids and it was an awesome experience. I couldn't have ever been more prepared to be a good teacher. Before coming on this journey we didn't quite know what to expect but after the month, the people in our group where from right across the world, people in our group from all over the world who was strangers in the beginning and felt like family in the end was sad saying goodbye. This is an incredible experience and would recommend this coarse for anyone. Travelbud was amazing from start to finish helping and assisting us with this journey.

Escapade in Thailand
Submitted by Licia Randall - Pathumthani Thailand | May 11, 2016
Travelbud has been helpful from the moment I first contacted them. This is obviously a big move and many questions brew up in a person's mind but Travelbud answered all of them as quickly as they could. No matter how stupid the questions. They were very patient and reassuring through out this whole process. They helped make this journey easier and comfortable by always offering their help and giving advice. I am now in Thailand, about to start teaching and enrich my life. Travelbud helped to get me here, I would like to thank them for all that they have done.
