The main thing to think about before you move to Thailand to teach is - do you like hot weather? The average temperature throughout the year is over 80 degrees and the range throughout the year is about two degrees between winter and summer. The other thing you need to like is rain, with September averaging ten inches a day. But with all of that said, it is a beautiful country with some of the friendliest people in the world, so you might not mind the wet and the heat. A reputable school will make sure that all your visas and other paperwork are correct and kept up to date
