I would like to teach in Thailand for a few years. However I want to mainly do so in Poland in the long term. If I leave Poland for Thailand will I have to "start over" when I return? When would it be best to go to Thailand keeping in mind that Poland is my long term interest? Thanks
You won't be starting over, but your exp. teaching in Thailand may not count in Poland.

I taught in Poland for a year and then taught in Thailand for 1.5 years before returning to Poland. Thailand was a fun experience, mostly for the vacation time and traveling. The teaching wasn't that great - lots of completely uninterested students and discipline problems.

Try to work for a reputable international chain school in Thailand and hopefully your exp. will count for more in PL.

Honestly tho, I did this and when I came back to Poland, my school told me my experience in Thailand didn't count - i.e. they wouldn't give me a raise based on my exp. there. They said that their school wasn't affiliated with the school in Thailand even though the two schools had the same name. Shocked
