— 45K a month in Lopburi

45K a month in Lopburi

Paul is a teacher at a secondary school in Lopburi and while his 30,000 baht a month salary is nothing to shout about, he has a nice corporate job at a local manufacturing firm that really increases his earning potential. He's made a few decent Thai connections as well and that's what it's all about. Paul is the latest teacher to take the ajarn cost of living survey.


— All aboard the Thailand express

All aboard the Thailand express

I bet most travellers, if asked to select a favourite mode of transportation, would choose train travel. Thailand's extensive state railway system criss-crosses the whole country at a rather sedate speed and seems to be loved and loathed in equal measure. Ajarn guest writer, Derek Hopper, journeyed from Surat Thani to Bangkok. So how was the experience? 


— Phuket you're just amazing

Phuket you're just amazing

You lucky, lucky people. That's what ajarn blogger, Sam Thompson, is saying about those expats who manage to fund a lifestyle in Phuket. One thing you can say about our Sam - he certainly gets about. This time, he's taking a break from school to go and explore the Phuket coastline. He even manages to find time to pop in and say hello to his girlfriend's folks in Nakhon Si Thammarat on the way home. 


— TEFL course news blog is out!

— Life for an English teacher in Myanmar

Life for an English teacher in Myanmar

When teachers get tired of working in Thailand, Myanmar is sometimes considered as the next option. But what are things like for a TEFLer in this fast-developing country? Joko Mackenna has been there for eight months now so he's in a decent position to make a list of comparisons.


— Who's up for a challenge?

Who's up for a challenge?

Not content with wasting his free time and idling away the hours on social networks, Bangkok-based high school teacher, Derek Hopper, has taken on the challenge of learning Latin. Apparently two years of Latin study could increase your English vocabulary by up to 20,000 words. I'm just going to take Derek's word for it.


— Encouraging confidence and teaching phonics

Encouraging confidence and teaching phonics

Any phonics teachers out there? Then you will like this new blog by David Walters on the topic of teaching phonics effectively. And while we're on the subject of improving our students' English. Ajarn's Filipino blogger, Ben Vacio, discusses some of the methods he's used in the classroom for improving his students' confidence.
