Teach English in Thailand Reviews

4.78 (76 reviews)

A super supportive experience from start to finish

If you want to make the move to become a teacher abroad, I would recommend going via TravelBud, especially if it’s your first time. It really is like having someone to hold your hand through all of the hard bits – but in the best way!”

I’d definitely recommend this experience

I was a little nervous to go so far away from home alone, but they made the process simple in terms of explaining VISAs and all other information. Thank you TravelBud for helping me get to Thailand, and for helping me become a certified TEFL teacher!

Grateful for TravelBud!

We wouldn’t be in Thailand if it wasn’t for TravelBud. The network of friends that we’ve made across the country is incredible. TravelBud’s staff are friendly and helpful and available nearly 24/7 to answer any questions we had along the way. We definitely will be teaching through a TravelBud program again in the future!!

If it weren’t for Travel Bud, I wouldn’t have been able to make it to Japan

They provided a great path for me to achieve my goal of teaching in Japan and I appreciate the program for being able to both certify me in teaching and facilitate my travel here. I can confidently say if it weren’t for TravelBud I wouldn’t be living in Japan now.

Very professional and helpful from start to finish!

The experience was definitely so helpful, especially during the pandemic. I received a lot of support and reassurance and they were very professional and helpful from start to finish! Anytime I had worries or questions, the team were quick to respond and would make sure to find all possible solutions or remedies.

TravelBud brings me comfort and security while in a foreign country

Before arriving to Japan I was nervous about many things, from what to do at the airport to what I should prepare. I decided to use Travelbud to help me get a job and to have my back for living alone in Japan. This company was always supportive and would answer and questions I had.

I am so glad I found this program!

TravelBud helped guide me through the process and matched me with the program I did once I arrived to Costa Rica. I always felt like I had someone in my corner who was looking out for me. They are responsive, helpful and genuinely wanted to help make my transition and time in Costa Rica the best it could be!

A life changing experience

The transition into living overseas was smooth, organized, and supported every step of the way. I am a solo traveler, but being a part of this program gave me a sense of community from the very beginning of my journey. I now have a job that allows me to travel internationally, and nothing is more exhilarating than the sense of freedom you receive from that.
