Teach Explore Asia (XploreAsia) Reviews

It's extremely difficult to choose an appropriate title to describe my experience with XploreAsia thus far, because each experience has been nothing but positive. But I choose to describe it as Unconditional Love because with this family of expats it has been just that.
After my placement job could no longer offer me full-time hours, to avoid moving away from my new found-community in my placement town, I was able to find a job on my own. But this presented a plethora of questions as to new visas and the process(es) this would entail. Moments after messaging XploreAsia, Matt, a visa specialist contacted me and walked me through the necessary steps regarding this new venture. Initially, I was hesitant to reach out to XploreAsia, worried they might be offended that I was finding work on my own. But quite the contrary, they were quick to congratulate and offered boundless bits of advice and support.
I truly do believe XploreAsia is more than a TESOL distributor but a family. They have proven time and time again that they believe greatly in their mission to improve the lives of Thai youth and strive to ensure all their participants are comfortable and having an enriching experience.
Sure, a good attitude and open mind is paramount to enjoying your time whilst Teaching Abroad. But to have a family that supports you unconditionally, is the greatest resource of all.

The day I left home to start my journey as a teacher, I wasn't sure what to expect. My first day I was a bundle of nerves. My first week was rough and I started to question myself and if this was really what I wanted to do with my life. As time went on I adapted to my school and the students. Granted there were days I wanted to give up but I pushed through as the kids started to creep into my heart. There are no words that can describe what it's like to be an English teacher. What I can say is that it's not for the faint hearted because you need a lot patience especially when it comes to the language barrier. I had an amazing experience overall and would come back to teach in a heartbeat.
A wonderful cultural experience

Teaching English in Thailand is a challenging but rewarding experience! When you have the courage to get out of your comfort zone, I think you'll find that you learn much more from your students and community then they will learn from you.

During my course, I had a great time with everyone in the course. I still stay in contact with a few and still are my amazing friends. The program planned great activities like rice planting and muay thai to name a few for us. They will make sure to guide you through all the process and help you in any/every way they can for your time in Thailand.

My experience with XploreAsia was excellent . From the moment that I arrived at the airport everything was very organised . The company made me feel at ease and the course was intense and had the necessary training given but fun at the same time there was a good balance between learning and socializing. I learned a lot about the Thai culture and was given the correct advise also during the course. After the course I got placed very soon and had no issues at all with agent all good.
