Learning difficulties - Dealing with students that have special needs. Many schools have problems dealing with students who have behavioural problems. In some countries, these students tend to be left to cope in mainstream classes, largely because there is no alternative. 


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.

"You could survive easily on 25K a month down here"

Our next cost of living survey comes from Debra, who works in the beautiful town of Songkhla in southern Thailand. Although her full-time salary is just 32K (and that's not too shabby for Songkhla) the 15K extra from private tuition, etc makes all the difference.

— What about Samut Songkhram for teachers?

What about Samut Songkhram for teachers?

It's usually a settlement you drive quickly through on your way from Bangkok to Hua Hin, but believe it or not foreigners do actually teach there. But could it be Thailand's most boring province?

Do you live and teach outside Bangkok? Please help us update one of our region guides if you can spare a few minutes.
