OP it is possible to earn that here but without certification you will either have to get very lucky or work your bollox off. A friend of mine is now earning 110 baht per month in his 2nd year doing tefl but works 2 jobs and rarely has a day off even weekends. Not my cup of tea. On the other hand if you are certified as a teacher from your home country the grass starts getting a lot greener and you should be able to make that kind of money with nice time off too.

Top end salary for a "non-qualified" (i.e. no PGCE, etc.) teacher in Thailand is around 60,000 at an Assumption or BCC type place. Salaries don't vary with subject, but availability does. So, a Physics teacher will land such a role far easier than an English teacher. Knowing they have hit the summit for a non-international school, English teachers will tend to avoid leaving these kinds of positions, and risk dropping back to the 30,000-40,000 norm. This is especially the case when the likes of BCC offer yearly increases that could potentially exceed 70K.

On top of that, you could do privates at the weekend. However, you could be doing that in Korea/Japan too, so comparing like-for-like Thailand will always be far, far less lucrative than a first-world country.

Also, I have heard rumblings about these "English program" schools wanting to unload their 60K-70K teachers, reset back to 35K and increase their numbers of 20K teachers from the Philippines. Maybe its just the usually BKK grumbling, but some of my well-paid teacher friends there are feeling a bit edgy.
