I have a friend who lives in yannawa district Bangkok who offered to let me stay with them for free. How hard do you think it would it be to find a English teaching job within a commutable distance?
I have a degree and a basic online TEFL, but no teaching experience.
...Yannawa is crowded, polluted, and devoid of bts or mrt stops...commuting anywere from there (even within Yannawa) could be a daily challenge...that said, feet on the ground and a personal survey of the area will turn up schools that may hire you...
...majestically enthroned amid the vulgar herd...
maybe shack up with your mate until ye get a job... then, get a place near your best job offer... you can always visit or yer mate visit you.

^what he said......Is free rent your motivation for working in Yannawa?
1) I know there is a BRT that runs through every ten minutes and links up with the chong nosi sky train. I have spent a few weeks there before so i'm kinda familiar with the area. But transit to the south of the river could be an issue.
2) I was thinking about staying for a year (possibly two) and then trying to move somewhere else outside of thailand (korea/taiwan or something?).
3) Yeah I guess thats reasonable
4) I'd say its my main motivation, but there are a few smaller reasons.
