Music and language acquisition

How music benefits the language learner

Learning language through music helps students' verbatim memory, improves pronunciation, speaks better, and promotes positive atmosphere in learning.


Early intervention for special kids

Experts say intervention is crucial while the child is still very young.

Evidences show that early intervention increases the developmental, educational and social rewards. Moreover, the medical field greatly supports early intervention too.


My classroom

A room away from home

A stimulating and educational classroom is what every child needs. It has to be simple, child centered and most of all caters also the needs of students who have learning needs.


Teaching away from Thailand

Feeling blessed to be a teacher

I guess I will always be teaching. May it be on top of a mountain, farm or with a tribe and culture different to my own?


My wishes

Reflecting on what I could have done better for my students

What had I achieved as a teacher, as a class?" "What had I given them? What had my students taught me during the past year?" So many moments of ups and downs, sheer joy and triumphs, but there were things I wish I could have done better.


Odd, but not really.

Considering students with special needs

Our role isn't to cure Autism, Down syndrome, and the like, but to provide these odd individuals a chance to live and experience a life worth living for!


A time of change

Taking over blogging duties from a very special person

As changes take place, you will surely meet a person who directly influences and affects your life in a magnitude that he/she might never know.
