Who wants to live and teach in the Northeast region of Thailand? You might be surprised! After tanning (or burning?) themselves at the many beaches of Thailand, or perhapsascending all the mountains of Northern Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, many people come to Khon Kaen, not only to visit, but to live (and teach English, if qualified) – where many,many Western gentleman have met and married the girl of their dreams, so sweet, gentle and fun-loving are the people of this city and province.

Famous Khon Kaen Buddhist Temple

Khon Kaen is the fourth largest province in Thailand, though Khon Kaen City is small enough that it is quite easy to get around in. The city contains all the amenities, the cost of living is very low, and the earnings for a professional English teacher are outstanding for a province outside of Bangkok. The climate is temperate, if tropical, and the province and city are blessed with numerous temples, a hugely interesting museum, the Chi and Nam Pong Rivers and many attractive areas for taking a hike through – not to mention, a thriving (though not imposing) nightlife which both residents and visitors enjoy.



The Kanesuan Academic Center (KC). This well-known and highly respected academy was established in 1989 by the present owner, Professor Apinya Suwannarong, as a tutorial school for the purpose of meeting the academic needs of the Khon Kaen community, which in the years that have followed has developed into the most respected and successful tutorial school in the entire Northeast region of Thailand.

Now, in a continued effort to meet the educational needs of the Khon Kaen community, Acharn Apinya has branched out with the opening of a popular language academy on the premises of Khon Kaen University, and has partnered with TEXT-AND-TALK Academy in presenting an outstanding TEFL Training Course Program there for the purpose of providing professionally trained teachers of English as both a second and foreign language for Thailand. The future is bright in Khon Kaen indeed! Professor Apinya holds a Bachelors degree in chemistry from Srinakarin University, and an MBA from the University of Khon Kaen.
