— "Your Thai isn't very good is it?"

"Your Thai isn't very good is it?"

The words were like a dagger to the heart and coming from a Bangkok taxi driver made it even worse. For someone who had lived in Thailand for nigh on twenty years, my spoken Thai just wasn't good enough - and I knew I had to do something about it.


— Link-tastic!

Link-tastic!

How can you get along better with your teaching assistant? Where do the trendiest young Bangkok chefs go to eat? How much do you need to retire in Chiang Mai? How can you become a mediocre teacher? The answers to all these questions and more in Peter Clarke's round-up of Thailand net stuff.


— Get your team in!

Get your team in!

Now in its 8th season, we are once again running the ajarn.com fantasy football league. Last year we had well over a hundred teams taking part. Once you have logged in to the premier league site, the code to join the ajarn.com league is 587590-149129

Martin is our latest great escapee. He taught in Thailand for five years and loved every minute but decided he had to secure a better future. So it was off to Saudi Arabia for money, money, money.



— The visa crackdown

The visa crackdown

The Asian Correspondent talks to ajarn.com, teacher recruiter Richard Barrow and teacher Paul Garrigan about the visa crackdown and how it might affect teachers in Thailand and the Thai education system.

— Lee Craker - the man behind the lens

Lee Craker - the man behind the lens

American photographer, Lee Craker, has a portfolio of some of the best Thailand images I've ever seen. When I discovered he ran his own photography workshops in Nakhon Nayok and recently covered the exodus of Cambodian migrant workers, I knew this was a guy we needed to get into the ajarn hot seat. Thankfully he accepted my invitation.  


— I don't go to tailor shops anymore

I don't go to tailor shops anymore

I don't go to see a movies at the theater, I never go on expat discussion forums and I certainly never buy fruit from a supermarket. Mickey Sheehan contemplates the ways his Bangkok lifestyle has changed.
