Homestay Tutor In Thailand
This is an immersion opportunity to learn some elementary Thai and enjoy the Thai culture and food for 1, 2, or 3 months. You'll live like a local with a carefully screened host family and you'll become a part of the community. You will soon learn why this country is called "The land of smiles."
When your host family learns English, you're leaving a lifetime skill that they (and you) will never forget.
Teach English abroad in Thailand for up to 15 hours each week and live like a local for up to 3 months when you help a family in Thailand learn English. Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before! Your new host family is more interested in learning conversational English than they are grammar. You'll have so much fun living in Thailand by simply speaking English the way you normally do at home. Also, you also have a unique opportunity to learn Thai!
In a matter of hours, you're walking around your new community like a real Thai citizen. It won’t take long for the locals to start recognizing you and for you to consider your host community your new, temporary home. It’s real and authentic. Get to know the locals. Wake up each day and feel a connection.

"Best Decision Ever
I know it sounds cliché but this was truly one of the best decisions I've made so far. This has been the most challenging, rewarding, and eye-opening experience and I've loved every second of it. There are definitely times where things were a little bumpy, but they were just that. A LITTLE bumpy.
I have a great support network, and there are tons of people I know I can reach out to if anything were to go wrong. Geovisions made the process leading up to getting to Thailand as smooth as possible and they put up with all my silly questions graciously and put my mind at ease. I recommend to anyone that wants a new experience that they just go for it. I don't mean to make moving to a foreign country and starting a new life sound like a breeze because it is by no means a job for the faint hearted, but if you're up for a challenge I promise you wont regret it.

"The true way to experience another culture!
Having never been out of the country, I decided to sing up to teach English in Thailand so I could not only have the opportunity to visit another country, but to learn about it. This was the perfect experience for that! It was just the right amount of time to get a wonderful feel for the Thai culture and to try my best to embrace it.
I was able to learn Thai dancing at work and go to celebrations almost every week that helped teach me about Thailand. It challenged me in ways I never thought I would be challenged. I would not take back the experience for anything.

"My overall experience in Thailand was wonderful.
Living in Thailand was fantastic, it doesn't take long to get your bearings and to feel safe and comfortable. The food and people in my town were great and I already miss them dearly! I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wished to see the real Thailand!
