Qualified teachers vs unqualified teachers

NES Teacher

At the risk of adding fuel to the fire for those that like to shoot down the Filipinos (or other NNES) teaching staff - be careful


Wages and discrimination

pinoyguy

Here's a fact, almost anywhere in the world you will find a Filipino worker. There are 2.2 million Filipinos around the world working in various occupations, and why? That's because we can read, write, speak or even sing better in the English language


Filipino teachers and salaries

Bill

It seems the teacher salaries are actually going down, and it's work ethics and attitudes such as that which contribute to it.


Education in The Philippines

george graham

A quick google of world/asian/asean rankings will show that the education system of the Philippines is regularly placed below that of Thailand


Filipino teachers are underpaid

Mike

I have and will argue until the end of time that most Filipino teachers are under-paid.


Filipino teachers are worth more

Pinoyguy

If we Filipinos continue to take on these jobs with low salaries, without even bothering to haggle for an increase, we are making the Filipino teacher's value in this country lower.


Barrio Fiesta in Thailand

A day of celebrations for all Filipinos living in Bangkok and beyond.

Were you at the Philippine Embassy in Thailand last June 8, 2014? Did you have fun in the "Barrio Fiesta" (village festival)?


Applying for the OEC certificate

Information and advice for Filipino workers abroad.

The Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) is a 'must have' certificate for all Filipino Overseas Foreign Workers (OFWs) on leave/vacation returning to their country of work.


A costly trip

Problems that Filipinos have when leaving the country

On my 4th trip to Thailand last May 1st 2013, I was offloaded at Clark International Airport in The Philippines. I passed through this airport because of an attractive promotion offered by a certain airline. I didn't know that I would encounter a more costly trip instead


Can't Speak English?

Pablo Gravoso

I am sure that my students will sooner or later become school administrators. I hope that they will not look at the color of the skin when they hire ESL teachers. They can hire whites, blacks or Asians. It doesn't matter. What is important is that they should look at the qualifications.
