So, my father read recently that proof of TEFL and TESOL certification is now a legal requirement to obtain an english teaching position in thailand. I am 98% sure that this is not true. Can anyone confirm or deny this?
Hahaha... I love that quite. I always use it on chicks that reject me. What's missing is the part where she says one in a million.
Ha! Point taken. I figured it couldn't be a legal requirement. My Dad messaged me in a panic because he read on Teachenglishbangkok.com that TEFL cert. and a tourist visa were required to get a job and was suggesting that I get started on those ASAP.
There are no legal requirements for teaching in Thailand depending on the school/teacher/officer/day of the week.
I would recommend some sort of teaching course to anyone who's thinking of entering a classroom in a teaching role though. Go for it!
