Hello, I have always been interested in living/teaching in Thailand and have decided to look into the possibility.However, I have a few questions.
I live in USA,but was born in another country. I barely speak my native language but speak fluent English. However I may still not be considered a "native speaker". Will this be a problem for me in obtaining a job ? Would they take into consideration the fact that I speak fluent English,and in fact its the ONLY language I am fluent at or will they be hesitant due to the fact that I was not born in the USA? I am a US citizen if that helps.
Are college degrees required? Obviously they are helpful in order to compete in the job market,but are they a must for getting a job ?
Is it possible to stay there long term (in terms of legal status) and how hard is it to obtain legal work visa ? I know the school will help but I am sure there is still going to be a lot of frustration and work left. I do not mind but I just want to make sure it is possible before I make the commitment, I have plans on staying there long term and would hate to have to leave prematurely because of legal complications.
