— Varee Chiang Mai catches World Cup fever

Varee Chiang Mai catches World Cup fever

Varee School in Chiang Mai never does things by halves and for the World Cup in Brazil, they really pushed the boat out.  Students represented countries and took part in a mock opening ceremony. There were matches played between teachers and students. It looks like a great time was had by all. Enjoy the photos.

"Too easy to just drift from day to day"

Damien is our latest great escapee. He left Thailand recently after three years teaching in Thai schools. He simply felt that the time was right to give China a go.


— Biking the Bolaven Plateau

Biking the Bolaven Plateau

Stuck for travel ideas near Thailand? But still have a sense of adventure? William Putnam bought a cheap motorcycle and travelled around Southern Laos for two weeks. He describes it as 'one of the most rewarding experiences ever'


— Technology is great but what happened to conversation?

Technology is great but what happened to conversation?

Travel on public transport in Bangkok (or any city really) and you'll see most people with their heads buried in a smartphone or tablet. Filipino blogger, Benito Vacio, is worried that we're losing the ability and desire to talk to each other. But of course there are upsides to all this modern technology. 



— Chantaburi, where have you been all this time?

Chantaburi, where have you been all this time?

I've just returned from a weekend corporate jolly in Chantaburi Province. Let me tell you something - if you haven't been to Chantaburi, then you are seriously missing out. And I'm guilty as well. I've discovered it late but I'm already beginning to think that my Hua Hin days might be over! Here's why you need to go.


— Teacher agencies revisited

It's been a number of years since we discussed teacher placement agencies (TPAs) on ajarn.com, but following the shocking story of the young couple imprisoned in Bangkok for using forged visas (supplied by a teacher agent) TPAs are once again in the spotlight. Sure, there are decent organisations out there, but are too many agents giving the Thailand TEFL industry a bad name?  


— The experiences of a secondary school veteran

The experiences of a secondary school veteran

Don Coppock has just started his third year as a teacher at a Thai secondary school in Chonburi. There are ups and downs, good days and bad days. But sometimes you're just grateful that nobody died. It's a great read!
