— A teacher at life's crossroads

A teacher at life's crossroads

Teacher and ajarn blogger, Richard McCully, feels that the Thailand adventure is wearing thin. He's fallen out of love with Bangkok and perhaps it's time to move on? But the question is where? Does he go back to his native England or does he try his luck in another European country? A discontented Thai partner and the fact Richard owns a condo in Bangkok only seem to add to the problems. Is it time to stick or twist? To stay or to go?


— Let's hear it for Rayong

Let's hear it for Rayong

We've got a brand new teachers' region guide to Rayong. Thanks to Anonymous for the info. The guide doesn't paint the rosiest of pictures but at least there are plenty of TEFL jobs there.


Are you working outside Bangkok? Please help update our region guides, even if it's only just to answer the odd question or two. Your contributions to ajarn dot com are always welcome.

"I didn't come to Bangkok to scrimp and save"

Next up in our cost of living section is Sid. Sid works at an international school in Bangkok and his salry is 120,000 baht a month. He finds that for that sort of money, he can live in an extremely spacious, centrally located apartment with all the facilities and also send a decent amount of money back to the UK each month. 


Now you can fill in the cost of living survey on-line. Come on, let us know what you earn and spend each month.

— A semester under my belt

A semester under my belt

Nigel Quinn is a qualified teacher from England with over twenty years classroom experience. He decided to pursue a dream, move to rural Thailand and teach at a government school. Nigel has now completed his very first semester and has compiled a terrific list of tips and advice for anyone thinking of perhaps making the same move.


— "I'm now upper-intermediate (in theory anyway)"

"I'm now upper-intermediate (in theory anyway)"

It's been two years since that Bangkok taxi driver said "for someone who's been here such a long time, your Thai isn't very good is it?' and two years since I decided to bloody well do something about it. Well, I've now reached upper-intermediate level - and I'm on the lookout for that taxi driver again.


— gate duty - love it or loathe it?

gate duty - love it or loathe it?

It's often something that many foreign teachers working at Thai schools are expected to do - to stand at the school gates and greet students and parents as they arrive in the morning. You are the face of the school. You're on show. It can be the school's way of saying 'hey! look at us, we've got a foreign teacher!' But how do you feel about it?
