Teaching English in Thailand

Mr. Cooper

I first heard people talking about Thailand when I was teaching English in South Korea. At the time, I had no desire to vacation there. But after living in Thailand, I've realized that it really is a nice place to vacation


A time of uncertainty

How the coup has affected my life in Bangkok

It's nearly two years since we moved to Bangkok. I don't think we would have made the move if the events of the last week or so had happened in the run up to us leaving London.


Thailand teaching stuff - May 2014

Another picnic basket of tasty blog links

Hi everyone, it's Peter Clarke again, with a selection of my favourite internet blogs and articles that I hope will appeal to teachers in Thailand. Well, actually you don't need to be a teacher, I think anyone who has an interest in all things Thailand will enjoy them.


The hidden gardens of Bangkok

You'd be surprised how much green there is out there

Finding peaceful, open spaces outside of Bangkok is easy enough, but tranquility within the central areas of the city is near to impossible, unless of course, you know where to look.

Thailand is ruled by men, not laws

I understand that Thai people do not like causing conflict or losing face, but the first step in solving a problem is admitting that there is one


Bangkok's cheap apartments

Are budget studios a good option?

Not only is Bangkok renowned for having the cheapest taxi fares on the planet, but it's perhaps also one of the least expensive capitals in the world for renting centrally located accommodation. So just how much bang do you get for your Baht in 2014?


How's life?

How can one answer such a simple question?

Friends and family always ask how life is for me and my family here in Bangkok. This question always makes me smile. Such a big question, written in a tiny two word sentence.


Tolerance

One aspect of Thai culture that must be the envy of the world

We foreigners may see some aspects of Thai culture as idiosyncratic, but it truly warms my heart when I see even young people in Thailand getting along in spite of personal differences
