I am teaching English in the Isan region. It is relatively close to other places such as Vietnam, Cambodia, and Indonesia, so this was an attractive feature because I wanted to visit these countries in my free time.
One of the things I love about teaching English in Thailand is that I have a much better work-life balance than my teacher friends in the U.S. I’m able to enjoy an active social life, live in a nice house (which even includes a cleaning service three times a week), and go to a job I enjoy every day.
I think there’s something rewarding about making the choice to live in a different country that unites people from diverse backgrounds and creates a basis for strong relationships.
