This is my first day here at the forums. I just want to say hello to everyone
and ask some questions.
I'm thinking of a career change now. I've been in the IT and Web/Graphics
design for years but now I want to teach English in Thailand.
Searching for teaching jobs in Thailand on different websites including
Ajar.com, I noticed that 90 some % of employers require the applicant to
be native speakers from USA, Canada, UK, and Australia only.
I'm none of the above. I'm actually Mexican but I studied in USA since 7th
grade and lived there for over 16 years. That gives me a good command of
English even better than Spanish. During my school years I received various
over achivement certificates on my ESL (English as a Second Language) classes.
Now my question is, how strict are employers to hiring only applicants born in
the countries named above? Or would my years living in USA qualify me as
a native speaker?
Perhaps I might be the only Mexican teaching in Thailand. Do you know of anyone
teaching English who is not from any of the listed coutries?
Thanks for your help.
A que no se puede. Lastima que los de alla son bien cabrones en asuntos de raza, color y origenes.

I can tell ya Nepo is the real deal Spanish speaker. Take his "errors" one by one and you'll see how Spanish grammar works. Especially the the. They leave it out where we would use it, then put it in where we wouldn't. Good luck bro.
WELCOME. Sorry haven’t heard of any wetbacks (just joking don't get mad) teaching in Thailand, but I do wish you all the best. Watch out for immigration Ha Ha. Good luck, and if you have any questions there are plenty of very wise people using this forum.

That's OK CREW I sometimes think that people are too serious, and I try to break it up a little bit. If he had said something then I would have apologized as I am a big enough person to do that, as I did not mean any harm. It is too early to start on him anyway maybe in a few days Ha Ha.
You'll be right mate. There're plenty of Filipinos here, working in the educational industry.
