Teach Explore Asia (XploreAsia) Reviews
An unforgettable, incredible experience!

It was nerve-wracking to make the decision to leave home and move to a new country to teach English but XploreAsia replaced all my trepidation with excitement and confidence! I have been living and teaching in Thailand for the past 7 months and couldn't be happier with my choice. XploreAsia provided endless support prior to coming to Thailand, invaluable teaching preparation, personalized placement meetings to help place me in a job best suited for me, and unending support after I was placed in a school. This program goes above and beyond in making sure participants are well-prepared and confident going into their own classrooms. I found the continued support after being placed in my school to be one of the most positive aspects of my experience as the XploreAsia staff is happy to help and well-informed in regards to Thai life and culture. I cannot recommend this program enough, if you're looking to embark upon a life changing and growing experience then don't hesitate. Wonderful things are waiting for you!

I was sent to a high school in Sisaket where I taught approximately 850 students per week. If you are looking for an easy job, then teaching abroad is not for you. You will work hard, you will sweat, you will occasionally want to kill your students but believe me when I say it is worth it. When your students are struggling with a concept and finally get said concept, you are beyond excited. When they yell out to you around the school just to say hi, you will trust that you are in the right place. Teaching is hard work but it is rewarding work. Make it fun, for both you and your students and you will have fewer bad days than good ones.

This has been a life changing experience. I am so truly blessed for getting this opportunity. Thanks to the team who helped me kick off this adventure. I am truly grateful for all the help that the team has given me. I don't think I can leave this beautiful country. I look forward to working more with the team in more adventures within Thailand.
The best 7 months of my life

Living in Chiang Mai for a month and then the small city of Kamphaeng Pet for 6 months was the best time of my life. I'm so glad I went through XploreAsia. I met some of the greatest people that I am still in contact with, and the staff of XploreAsia was always there to answer questions or help with anything at all. My friends in my town that came through different programs told me they wished they'd come through XploreAsia as well!

Before arriving in Thailand I knew what I wanted to get out of the experience. I'd graduated university and I wanted to get a little more experience teaching whilst having the freedom to travel. I never imagined that I'd make such amazing connections with the staff and the pupils at my school and also what incredible friends I'd meet along the way! I can truly say that this experience has taught me so much and Thailand will always have a special place in my heart. I encourage anyone who is open to new experiences and not afraid of a challenge to sign up to this programme!
