Your contributions always welcome

Can you spare some time to help fellow teachers?

If you can spare a little time, we would love your contributions to the ajarn website. Here are just some of the ways you can get involved.

The Great Escape

Our great escape feature is for teachers who have taught in Thailand and moved on to another country - possibly to teach or maybe to take up a totally different job altogether. We would love to hear how the move turned out for you and why you left and what you miss about Thailand, etc. You can type your answers directly into our 'great escape' survey and I will add it to the website. Just click on the 'add your own great escape' link.

The Ajarn Postbox

The postbox is the place to air your views on any aspect of teaching in Thailand. We welcome all letters no matter how long or short. All we ask is that you use common sense at all times and avoid issues that would be deemed as too controversial. Click on the 'send letter to ajarn.com' link and you're in business.

The Region Guides

These guides have provided so much good information to new arrivals down the years. Not everyone wants to work in Bangkok so it's natural that someone would want to find out as much as possible before moving to a smaller, rural town or city. If you live in a Thai town that's not covered in our region guides, we would love to hear from you. And even if you do live in a place that's already covered, I'm sure it must have changed in some ways since the guide was first written. We're not looking for complete re-writes if just to update an answer or two is what you want to do. If you teach in a city or town other than Bangkok, have a look at the region guide list first and find out if your city or town is up there. What could you add and what could you help us with? I have now put the questions on-line so they are easier to answer.

The Cost of Living

The topic of 'how to live, work and survive as a teacher in Thailand' has always been at the heart of ajarn.com, so it will probably come as little surprise to know that this is the most popular section of the website (apart from the jobs page of course!) Thanks for your help because a lot of new arrivals really do rely on good info such as that presented in those cost of living surveys. I have put the questions on-line to make things easier.

Become an Ajarn.com Blogger

Guys like Steve Schertzer, Phil Roeland and Dave Montgomery have become 'household names' in the Thailand TEFL word, in fact Dave regularly gets stopped as he travels around North East Thailand and someone will say "here, aren't you the guy who writes for ajarn.com?" Well, whether you court fame or not, you're welcome to become an ajarn blogger as long as you submit something every month or two and that the topics are somehow related to life in Thailand. Send us an e-mail if you fancy becoming a regular blogger. And don't forget - you can put a link to any of your other blog sites as well and drive more traffic to it. A good ajarn.com blog can easily get two to three thousand readers in a short period of time.

Hot Seat Interview

Everyone - and I mean absolutely everyone - has a story to tell. If you are somehow connected to the Thailand TEFL business as a teacher, a trainer, a candlestick-maker, then why not put yourself in the ajarn hot seat? If you've written a book and you want to give it a good plug or perhaps you've started a Thaiand-based business or maybe you are part of a charity that needs some exposure, again, you're a great candidate for a hot seat interview. Everyone loves to read a hot seat interview so get in touch if you would like to be featured.

A big, big thank you for any contributions.
