— Money, money, money

Money, money, money

Teacher salaries are once again the hot topic in the Ajarn Postbox. Should Filipino teachers be accepting salaries of 15,000 baht a month when many of them are clearly worth as much as an NES teacher? And what about teachers who are born in America, grew up in America, but look Thai. Should they have to accept lower salaries because of their 'Thainess'? Why not have your say in the Postbox? 


— Bad hair days and English language dilemmas

Bad hair days and English language dilemmas

Julia Knight's latest blog is a cry for help. She's having a bad hair day in Bangkok. Too many bad hair days in fact. Surely there must be plenty of female teachers out there who can sympathize and offer help? Sam Thompson doesn't have any hair issues but he is pondering what problems the students must have with British English and American English - not to mention all those blessed regional accents.

— Songs and selfies

Songs and selfies

David Walters of The British Early Years Centre takes a look at the enduring appeal of Jolly Phonics songs and why kids love them so much. And for something completely different, Ben Vacio writes about the history of the selfie and wonders why we've become so obsessed with taking photos of ourselves.

— Only young, good-looking teachers need apply

Only young, good-looking teachers need apply

It's often said that when it comes to hiring teachers in Thailand, too many Thai schools place a teacher's 'appearance' above all else. 'Style over substance' you might say. Howard was possibly the best-looking, young teacher I'd ever interviewed. But sometimes beauty is only skin deep
