Looking for a TEFL course deal?

The June Thailand TEFL course blog is now on-line. Have a look at what Thailand's leading course providers are up to and maybe secure yourself a nice deal into the bargain.

Ten reasons why it's better to take a TEFL course in Thailand (if you plan to teach in Thailand) compared to taking a course in your home country.


— The June teacher hire 'spike'.

The June teacher hire 'spike'.

We're already beginning to experience what I refer to as the 'June spike. Although most teacher hiring for the new school term is done in May, what happens in June is that new hires don't show up because they got a better offer elsewhere. Or perhaps the teacher didn't work out for the school or the school didn't work out for the teacher. The same thing happens every year and often June can be just as busy as May. Check out the ajarn.com jobs page. 


— What makes a foreign teacher great in a Thai classroom?

What makes a foreign teacher great in a Thai classroom?

Are you the foreign teacher that any Thai school would want to employ? Do you give students ample opportunity to speak? Are you mindful of personal hygiene? Do you even know how to work the photocopier? Here's a checklist anyway.


— Interesting blog links for Thailand teachers

Interesting blog links for Thailand teachers

Peter Clarke is back with another selection of interesting blogs that he's found on his travels around the internet, including a list of great new cafes in Bangkok and six hilarious things about teaching in Thailand. In addition, what are the five things that Chris and Angela are glad they did before moving to Chiang Mai? Why has one blogger stopped eating Thai streetfood? And more....

"Having your own motorcycle can seriously drive down transportation costs"

Two new cost of living surveys for you. Jay earns 55,000 baht a month in Bangkok and Danny earns 10,000 baht a month in rural Northern Thailand. I think it's fair to say that they have different attitudes to money and lifestyle - but the comparisons are always interesting!

In our latest teaching and Thailand blogs, Sam Thompson took a break from the Bangkok heat and travelled to Italy, where he had an amazing time driving around the Tuscany countryside. And Joko found out that doing the CELTA course is tough - even for an experienced teacher.


— Two new great escapes

Two new great escapes

Amy moved back the UK after 13 months in Thailand - part of that time was spent teaching English but teaching was never something she planned to do long term. Jemima on the other hand, continued her teaching career in Taiwan - and she's clearly loving it there! So how did they both rate the whole Thailand experience?
