The Ultimate Guide to Teaching English in Thailand by Mike Fook.

Mike Fook has reviewed all the available information about teaching English in Thailand and distilled it into this one – guide. This new book is filled with pertinent information about moving to Thailand and obtaining a job teaching English.

  • Thai ‘face’ – the major underlying guide for Thai society and individuals
  • First few days in Thailand – what to do to get oriented.
  • Scams – find out about the usual scams and in so doing, you’ll be more ready for innovative scams nobody is up on yet.
  • How much can you earn? Realistically, the god’s honest truth.
  • Choosing region to live –  biggest single factor determining success. Choose a location that matches what you’re looking for and you’ll have the greatest time. Choose one that doesn’t – and you’ll be packing for home, or some other spot in Asia.

    Dear Mike,
    I bought 3 books from you recently…I’ve read 2 of them and I’m working on the 3rd…GREAT INFORMATION – THANKS…Also, thanks for all your personal help with my downloads…I really appreciated it.

    I want to buy the same ones for my daughter, but I’m having a terrible time with your website…I only seen to be able to buy one book at a time in stead of adding several to the same Pay Pal bill…If you go to PayPal and follow the instructions to add the CART to your website, then we could add multiple books to our bill, making it easier for your customers can buy your books.

    Best of luck,

      I know what you’re saying… but, with the way does fulfillment on the books, I have to do them separately. I know it’s a pain, most people do order more than one book… Maybe some sort of fix will come to my attention in 2013. Cheers man, thanks for your note.
