— Homeless in Bangkok

Homeless in Bangkok

Adam Beardsmore ponders the plight of Bangkok's many homeless people. "It strikes me that Bangkok can be a relentlessly hard city for those more unfortunate, especially those who find themselves homeless, stuck in a concrete jungle with the sun beating down and no one seemingly too bothered about what will become of them"


— Fighting fit in South East Asia

Fighting fit in South East Asia

Those who follow Joko Mackenna's blogs will know that he moved from Thailand to teach English in Myanmar. Joko hasn't been feeling well lately so he decided it was time to put Myanmar's medical facilities and health care to the test. Understandably Joko was feeling skeptical and a tad apprehensive about what lay ahead - but in fact he was in for a nice surprise.


— Plenty of blogs!

Plenty of blogs!

New ajarn blogger, David Walters. has literally got the bug....for bugs! He's given up eating beef and started tucking into more Thai insects instead. Rather you than me Dave! In other recent Ajarn blogs, Ben Vacio turns his attention to the subject of time and why so many of just don't manage it properly. Julia Knight is monitoring her son's development and wonders if Thailand is turning him into a bit of a scaredy cat. And Sam Thompson blogs about his government school classes and the different types of student they contain.


— "The changes to the visa regulations ultimately did me in"

"The changes to the visa regulations ultimately did me in"

Tony Mitchell is our latest great escapee. This one is 'hot off the press' you might say because Tony only left to return to Australia a few days ago. Having chatted to Tony on Twitter many times, I think it's fair to say that he had had enough of teaching in Thailand - and I knew he wouldn't mince his words in a survey.



— "Making progress with the Thai language"

"Making progress with the Thai language"

The concluding part of my two-part blog on struggling with the Thai language. The first fifteen years were an embarrassment. The following three years were OK. The last six months have been fantastic. It's all about motivation.
