Temples, Elephants, and Floating Markets

You’re deciding where to study abroad and many people immediately think of only Europe or Australia/NZ but have you ever considered Thailand?? If you haven’t, you certainly should!

The language may be difficult to learn and the food may be a little interesting but most importantly the people of Thailand are incredibly generous and respectful. The experience and knowledge you would gain by studying abroad in Thailand is one for the books. It’s a completely different lifestyle from the one we live and having the opportunity to see it firsthand is something you shouldn’t ever pass up!

TEAN offers a great study abroad program in Thailand where you live in Chiang Mai (you can even room with a local your age!!) and study at Chiang Mai University–one of the top universities in Thailand. Best yet, the orientation is unlike any orientation. Thai massages, elephant rides, shopping at local markets, all while meeting incredible people?! So much better than sitting in a classroom pretending to listen to someone speak while you’re actually playing Candy Crush or slowly falling asleep—face it, we’ve all done it. Check out the link right here to read more about their program http://www.educationabroadnetwork.org/thailand.html
