"I miss the politeness and cleanliness"

Lynken taught in Thailand for about seven years before moving to China. Now that he's left China as well, he's in an ideal position to compare the two countries through the eyes of a TEFLer. Lynken is our latest great escapee.


Did YOU teach in Thailand but have now moved on? Perhaps to another country or maybe back home? We would love to hear your story. Submit your Great Escape.


— A celebration of the Thai 'egg and chips'

A celebration of the Thai 'egg and chips'

It's very often the first dish a foreign tourist or long-term expat learns to order. It's the go-to dish in virtually every restaurant when your terrible Thai pronunciation is getting you nowhere. Mickey Sheehan sings the praises of the mighty khao pat gai - Thailand's very own 'egg and chips'


— Here we go!

Here we go!

It's almost May - the busiest month of the year when it comes to recruiting foreign teachers in Thailand. It's that time of year when many schools the length and breadth of the country suddenly think 'shit! the new school term starts tomorrow and we forgot to hire the English teachers. Quick! grab that guy just walking past the gates. He'll do.'

"It's been seven days already"

You attended the job interview and played a blinder. After you'd given a demo lesson, everyone in the class stood up and applauded. The job was as good as yours. But a week later and you've heard nothing back. Has the school forgotten you? Did your application form get shoved in the bin? It's times like this when you need to trust your instincts says Mark Newman.


— "I love teaching Thai adults"

"I love teaching Thai adults"

Not everyone would agree I know. Some teachers are born to teach children and love it. But Richard has never regretted the day he found employment at a Thai language centre where the students are all Thai adults. No more teenagers or screaming kids. And he's a much happier man. What are the advantages of teaching adults over children in Thailand?

"One of the most under-rated aspects of living in Bangkok, to me, is the availability of affordable live shows". Sam Thompson has been enjoying some of the city's finest amateur productions and longs for more!
