Teaching opportunities

Recently added - we've got some international school positions in Bangkok paying 65k a month.  An international program is looking look for an academic head teacher and offering 100K. Plenty of kindergarten positions around at this time as well for those who enjoy teaching the young 'uns.


Post your resume - we're hurtling towards the peak season for teacher recruitment so make sure to put your resume on Ajarn so schools can find you!

— Teaching phonics: what's it all about?

Teaching phonics: what's it all about?

Phonics - Some teachers are really sold on phonics, and believe it's everything that a beginning reader needs. Teacher trainer, Stephen Louw, says unfortunately that's not true and discusses the myths of teaching phonics. 


— "English teachers generally earn 60,000 to 70,000 here"

"English teachers generally earn 60,000 to 70,000 here"

Cost of living - Let's move away from Thailand for our next cost of living survey and hear from Randy in Korea. He earns 117,000 baht a month at an international school and they also cover the cost of his three-bedroom apartment and utility bills. Sounds like there's a good life to be had as an English teacher in Korea! 


— As a foreign teacher here, you are making a difference!

As a foreign teacher here, you are making a difference!

Teacher motivation -  "There are four reasons" says Mark Newman "we like doing it, we can do it, we get paid for doing it, and 'purpose'" But whatever category you fit into, you ARE making a difference. 



— Should teachers avoid taking photos of students?

Should teachers avoid taking photos of students?

Snap happy - Do you agree with Richard McCully that teachers should refrain from taking photos and shooting videos of their students without consent? 


A year in Ubon - once my wife passed away, it felt like there was nothing left for me in the UK. So it was time to take a TEFL course, sell my bungalow, find a teaching job and move to Thailand. That was the master plan anyway.


— "Anywhere that makes you happy can be home"

"Anywhere that makes you happy can be home"

Back to The North-East - Teacher Cola (Nicola) worked in Thailand for seven years at both Thai schools and an international school. However, when the shine started to wear off, she wanted to give life in the UK one more crack and be closer to family and friends. How are things working out?


— Why it's impossible to verify TEFL job ads

Why it's impossible to verify TEFL job ads

Teacher recruitment - when something in a job ad doesn't look or feel right, you'd think it would be easy to just call up the advertiser and verify the information. And most times, you would be wrong.
