The. teachers, all volunteers, were recruited under the Thailand English Teaching Project 2012.
Ms Sasithara said starting tomorrow, July 24, the teachers will head out to about 100 schools spread throughout the country, where they will teach English to students for six weeks.
The British Council is preparing the teaching curriculum and providing teaching assistance.
Under this project, Thai students will have the opportunity to learn English directly from teachers whose mother tongue is English, and the teachers will gain experience from teaching abroad and learning about Thai culture, she said.
All teacher volunteers will be issued a certificate, which they can use to help find a job in the future.
While in Thailand, the teachers will be well taken care of, she said, and given a mobile phone which they can use to contact their families, friends and the embassy.
